    Got GD installed. Imported sample listings.
    I’m now adding widgets to some of the GD sidebars so I can configure the GD Homepage.
    however, running into issues.
    1. It seems that no matter what widget I add to the GD Top or GD Content section the widget data is not reflected on the GD Home Page. It is still blank.
    2. When adding the GMap to the Content or Top sidebar it returns the following error,
    “An error has occurred. Please reload the page and try again.”. Reloading doesn’t help.
    Thanks in advance

  • Ok Part of the problem solved by going to gd/design and checking all the boxes. Here’s my results.
    Sidebar: GD Home Top – No data displayed, regardless if I use a GD widget or non GD widget. GD Widget will return – An error has occurred. Please reload the page and try again.
    Sidebar: GD Home Content – Seems to display data from non GD Widget such as custom menu

    Sidebar: GD Home Right – Display non GD widget data.

    There is no GD Left sidebar by the way. as stated in your help section even though I have left section checked in Home/Design settings.

    Correction: Got the home left sidebar working after a refresh.
    I put text widgets in all the home sidebars.
    You can see what I have by going to
    http://themindproject.net/gd-home/
    Placement doesn’t seem to be correct. Have data in all when using the text widget except for the Home Top.

    Ok. I get it now. The widgets won’t work in the sidebars unless GD Home is also WordPress home. Now it’s working. Not sure I like it this way. GD Home shouldn’t have to be the home page of the site. It of course can be the home page of the directory. That’s a given but to make it have to be the home page of the site seems unnecessarily restrictive.

    Nuts. Now I will need to redact all of his offers…

    @stiofansisland I’ve redacted your offer to obtain login credentials to your users site. Never make that offer in these forums again. That’s something that is not permitted here.

    It does not matter that you sent your user to your own site. No one should permit you to log into their site and you can’t make that offer in these forums. Please be aware that your asking many times will result in the moderators asking you to stop before escalating to the plugins team.

    @foreverlearning Is everything resolved for you now?
    The GD home page widgets should work no mater if the homepage is set as GD page or not.

    Thanks,

    Stiofan

    H Stiofan,
    Thanks for the assurances. I can confirm for you however that when I set the WordPress home to anything other than GD Home that GD Home does not work.

    Ah ok, its a Genesis theme, i think there is still a legacy hook for how the homepage is set, if you are not using the GD homepage as the homepage you can use the location page instead as it is exactly the same as the GD home page http://themindproject.net/location/

    Thanks,

    Stiofan

    Thanks Stiofan.
    That works. However this client once we get this all configured is going to require the locations add on as there will be a global directory. Then what?

    (@stiofansisland)

    The that page will still continue to work as normal, when you view /location/ireland/ it will limit the listing to only Ireland or /location/ireland/dublin/ to only Dublin.

    Thanks,

    Stiofan

    Ok thankss. We’ll be moving forward with add ons this week and will likely have some questions about those. Should I submit these questions here to the WP forum, or through the website?

    You will receive much faster answers from our own forums as we have more staff that monitor them but the choice is yours 🙂
