Plugin Directory

Name Directory

Name directory (glossary) with lots of options. Very easy to add to your site with a simple shortcode. It can have multiple directories.

What does the shortcode look like?

The shortcode for this Name Directory plugin is like this:

[namedirectory dir="1"]

The 1 in this example is the internal ID of the directory, the rest of the shortcode should always look like this.

I created a directory, how do I show it on my site?

  1. Go to the Name Directory settings page
  2. Hover over the directory you want to add to the page.
  3. A few options should show now, like Delete, Manage and Shortcode - see screenshot https://ps.w.org/name-directory/assets/screenshot-2.png
  4. Click 'Shortcode', a little textbox will show now.
  5. Copy-and-paste the content of the textbox into the page you want the plugin to show up.
  6. Save and view the page to see the result.

Can you install this plugin or directory for me?

Maybe, send me an email to see if we can work this out.

Is there a bulk-add or import in this plugin?

Since v1.7, yes there is! You can import a .csv-file into a directory.

  1. Go to the Name Directory settings page
  2. Hover over the directory you want to add to the page.
  3. A few options should show now, like Delete, Manage and Import - see screenshot for a settings-example https://ps.w.org/name-directory/assets/screenshot-2.png
  4. Click 'Import'
  5. Select your .csv-file
  6. Upload

You can add names, descriptions and submitter entries, just the first column (name) is required. Good to know: the first row is always ignored (they should be headers). You can download an example file at http://ps.w.org/name-directory/assets/name-directory-import-example.csv If you need any help, contact me on the forums.

Can I make the text bigger or another color?

Yes you can, with CSS. If you know your way around CSS you might already know that you can style elements by their class name or HTML structure. This plugin was written with styling / CSS in mind. Using the HTML inspector of your favourite browser you should be able to discover the classnames, but here are a few popular classes:

  • .name_directory_index: Index links (the letters A-Z)
  • .name_directory_name_box > strong: Name / Entry title
  • .name_directory_name_box > div: Name / Entry descriptiong
  • .name_directory_total: Total count of names / entries
  • .name_directory_index > form: Search form
  • #name-directory-search-input-box: Search input box
  • #name-directory-search-input-button: Search button
  • .name_directory_submit_bottom_link: Link to submit form
