I see this sort of question is asked periodically, and often there are no responses. Gonna try anyway :)
I'm building a site for a university department. I was going to use 2011, but I want a nice faculty and student directory on it. Looked for plugins to do this - found Connections, which looks decent, but my host doesn't want to run it under multisite.
I know some themes have this kind of feature (I saw one, but it wasn't
quite exactly what I was hoping for). Paid/commercial is fine - I just want a SIMPLE, BASIC theme with this sort of "people directory" feature already in it, or a plugin for this feature that is stable and secure under multisite that I can use with 2011.
Any help you can offer is highly appreciated.
