I can see that this is a quality piece of work, but I’m not getting on top of it yet.
I put a bunch of articles in the directory and got a very nice display by list or by table. But, I am trying to tie it in with data from a Formidable form (with which we obtained the authors’ permissions to publish their work) and include category and keywords fields. The exact filename of the document was one of the fields collected on the form.
I tried to make a custom column with category so that they could be sortable by this field selection.
[fileaway type=”table” mod=”no” style=”silver-bullet” paginate=”yes” pagesize=”30″ customdata= “Category” sortfirst=”custom”]. I thought the Formidable code  was going to populate the column, but it is has formed part of the column title instead.
When I read the instructions it seems very focused on who is logged in. We want to tie the articles in the library with information about it supplied by the author.
Are there any existing articles that will point me in the right direction? I’ve read that you’re very busy – but do you have any spare time?
The fileaway table is currently on http://www.ccrasa.com/frm_display/articles/ This is created from the Fileaway shortcode on a ‘View’ page of the relevant form.
On the right is a ‘flyout’ with a connection to another view I made of the same form using just Formidable shortcodes. I’m quite confused as to what is happening.
If it’s useful the form is on http://www.ccrasa.com/authors-permission/ We’re not planning to display every data field collected there.
