[resolved] Need First page to show listings (9 posts)

    The front page only gives a choice of Submit a Listing and View Listings as I have set up. I want the front page to have all my listings so residents do not have to click on a link to get to the list.

    How can I do this?

    Thank you.

    You can use the shortcode [WPBUSDIRMANMVIEWLISTINGS] just below the shortcode for the main directory [WPBUSDIRMANUI]. That should put the listings below the categories.

    Thank you that worked, but I have no idea what I should do about this! The information seems to be right over the image. Thanks so much!

    Looks like you'll need to adjust your thumbnail sizes OR change your page layout with CSS a bit. The images you've uploaded are simply too large for the default template layout.

    You can override the template with the instructions here (you want the businessdirectory-listings.tpl.php): http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/support-forum/faq/customizing-bd-to-fit-your-theme/

    Custom CSS usage info is here: http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/support-forum/faq/how-to-use-custom-styles-with-bd-2-1/

    I reduced the images to be only 150 in width...it still looks like this

    I looked at the instructions and they are confusing. I have no idea what to change in the CSS. Is there something easier that would feature these business cards without overlapping the text?

    Basically, you need to either reduce the size of the images (by uploading new ones, they're just HUGE) or increase the width of the page and the elements in there to accommodate them.

    If the CSS/HTML changes are a bit daunting, you might consider hiring a developer on oDesk (http://odesk.com) to help.

    My images are small...104K or 250 px in width. Anymore and the cards will be so tiny. Also, I removed the sidebar as you can see, and it's still overlapping the image. I'll try again.....

    OK, I made them 150 W and so far so good as far as displaying, but when I click the card for more information, their page gives such an small card that it's very hard to read. How can I make their "page" have a larger image?

    Hmmm. OK, I see what you're doing now.

    What are your images settings right now? I have exactly what you want on the demo site: http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/business-directory/, when you click on the listing, the image is larger. But that's a function of having a thumbnail size and an image size that are different--are yours the same? That may be the issue.

    Just to confirm, you're on 2.1.2, right?
