At first I couldn't download the plugin (connection time-out - go figure!) so I auto-updated and got this:
"Fatal error: Class 'cnRole' not found in /home/visit/public_html/wp-content/plugins/connections/connections.php on line 489"
So I restored back to Connections 7.5.1.
I returned to the repository and this time I was able to get the download - tried to update again using Easy Theme & Plugin Updater. Now I've got a page that says "Template Not Found." (http://www.sierracountynewmexico.info/shopping/a-z/)
In the past the template (Market) has been stored outside the plugin directory - in wp-content - do I need to move it elsewhere? Let me know, if I don't hear from you soon I'll probably go back to 7.5.1.
Thanks for the heads up on the update!
