Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin » Genre names not showing up on main members page

  • Resolved chris716


    Until a few days ago the main members directory page displayed a listing of genres for the businesses listed. I upgraded to the newest version (2.2) but it is still not displayed. The resource group that this site is for really wants the listing of business genres back, but I have been unsuccessful doing this and don’t understand why it is not displayed now.
    Can someone help?

    Thank you

    Hi Chris716,

    Can you check on Directory Admin->Manage Form Fields and check to see that the Business Genre field is set to display in the Excerpt or not? That’s what controls the visibility, maybe it got flipped somewhere along the way…?



    Yes, I have checked the Manage Form Fields and the Business Genre is set to display. (Display this value in post excerpt view is checked). Also, I have deactivated plugins to see if it is at all affected by another plugin, with no luck.
    Another thing that I noticed was that when View Listings is clicked, I have two excerpts showing for each business.
    I have tried everything that I can think of and have run out of ideas as of this moment.
    Could there be something that I may be missing?

    Thank you for your help.

    Are you running WP Super Cache or other caching plugins? Have you tried eliminating a theme conflict as well?

    Business names not displaying on main excerpt.
    I can see Location and phone # as set on Directory Admin->Manage Form Fields and set to display in the Excerpt.

    Hi Keith,

    So, you mentioned that Business Names aren’t displaying, but you didn’t say what that field’s settings were under Manage Form Fields, as that would be the relevant question.

    Is Business Name set to display in Excerpt or not?

    field association: post title

    field type: textfield

    Field Validator: no validation

    Is field required?: (checked)This field is required.

    Show this value in excerpt view?: (checked)Display this value in post excerpt view.

    Show this value in listing view?: (checked) Display this value in the listing view.

    Show Business name in excert is set to display but not not displaying. Please help. URL:
