Support » Plugin: Participants Database » Alphabetical pagination/sorting

  • Hello,

    Instead of having the pagination the way it is now, is there a way to just have A – Z, so people can click on a letter and then get a listing with all the fields with that letter?

    For instance, I am using it for a list of wineries…right now it is a little hard to find things if you aren’t quite sure what you’re looking for. For example, right now, users have to guess that Page 4 may contain wineries that start with the letter E.

    I would instead like them to be able to click on E out of ‘A B C D E…” and find all the wineries that start with that letter.

    Please let me know if this is possible! Thanks!

    Yes, you can do this, but you’ll have to construct the navigation control yourself. You can make a link to the list page that includes a search, so what you do is create a series of links, one for each letter.

    Each link will be something like this…let’s say your list is on a page named ‘participant-list’ and the winery name is in a field named ‘winery_name’ to show all the wineries that begin with the letter “B” your link could look like this:

    <a href="participant-list/?search_field=winery_name&value=b*">B</a>

    the b* means find a word the begins with the letter b.
