Sorry but I can't seem to find any tutorial or Doc related to Trombinoscope Contacts Pro version regarding what I am trying to do.
I'm trying to have the page look like Demo 3, where I have some information on the listings (grid) page, and when you click on "More Information" you see the rest of the info.
I'm using it for a business listing, and I selected the GRID option on the menu but all I see is the Name and no other information.
Can you please point me to or tell me how to get certain information on the listings page, for example, Business Name, Contact Name, Address, when when I click on "More Info" I see all the information that is on the listings page plus the rest of the info that is entered for that contact. Basically similar to Demo 3.
The key elements:
- select which items to show in the 'filtering/item selection' tab.
- in the 'grid layout' tab
set the card width (in percentages: like 30% to allow 3 in a row maximum),
set the min and max widths (so the cards don't get too wide or too small),
link to 'contact (Trombinoscope Contacts Pro)'.
- in the 'picture' tab, set the alignement (left for instance). If so, set 'orientation switch width' to the width of the card under which you want the picture to go on top of the info).
- in the 'information' tab, select which info you want to show.
1 - you need to create a language override if you want to change the value. The key to change is COM_TROMBINOSCOPEEXTENDED_SEARCH_TEXT.
Go to extensions -> languages -> overrides.
Create an new override for the language you want (like 'English - site').
Search for the value 'Enter Text Here', which will give you the keys that set that value. Get the key for trombinoscope and create your override for that key.
2 - You have a back button IF you enable the system plugin 'Back to view'.
3 - There is only one template available at the moment. It is set in the Global configurations of the extensions, under theming. You can also override the output by creating a template override (more involved, you need to know PHP).
4 - To show a map, you need to select 'Map' under the layout tab (one of the options of the 'space' parameters).
5 - Same as above, select 'Form' from the list of items you can show for each contact for the parameters 'space 1', 'space 2', ...
Because I'm working on the page I refresh it to see the changes. I notice that when I'm refresh the page the "Back" button disappear. It's not a big deal as I don't think users will be refreshing the page but just letting you know.
I can send you the URL so you can see it if that helps.
I'm still not seeing the Form. This is in the Global Configuration - correct? I have Contact Details, Map and Form. Contact Details and Map is showing but not the form.
I add a map on the background but I only want the map on the details page but it has the same page itemid as the listings page so it's showing on the listings page as well. Is there anyway to only have it show on the details page?
#2: it is expected. You can't go back to the menu where there is the list of contacts if the last page is the contact itself. That is why the back link disappears.
#5: if the contact does not have an email address, the form won't show. Maybe it is the problem ?
Other: I don't understand, sorry. There is no relations between the contact details page and the contact listing, so I don't see why showing the map in the contact details page can also show the map in the listing page.
Please give me the URL where I can see the behavior. Thanks!
