Support » Plugin: Participants Database » Sortable and Image Size

  • We are testing this for our SCA group and had a few questions on things I can’t seem to find.

    First it, while selected in the manage database fields, none of the columns are sort-able on the list page.

    Second when I click to see the full profile of a member, there is no “return” link or anything that lets the visitor easily return to the list menu. I can add one to the page I believe manually, but wonder if it should not be part of the system.

    Third, when I view the single member page, the profile picture is small. I see no way to indicate what size it should be, we’d prefer on the individual page it be in its glorious 300 size!

    This plugin is a lot easier that doing it by hand, I will admit, but hoping you can help me on these issues.

  • Wanted to update:

    1. I found the sort option in the shortcode details. Not sure if this is the only place to add it, but I missed the note originally. (Issue Fixed) I tried to add search as well, but it stacks them making everything shift down. Would be awesome to put this side by side but I can only find a [pdb_search] shortcode so I can’t arrange them as such.

    3. I found the option to add clickable picture/ligthbox. Turned it on, but would still like to have larger images in the single member page.

    4. Not a CSS expert, so not sure if its possible to relocate items on the single member page. But, as a possible idea, any way you can break up the short code for this page into 2, [pdb_main_single] and [pdb_personal_single] which would allow us to move or relocate? I’d personally like them side by side on a wide screen and then shift into a single column when smaller.

    It is possible to use the [pdb_search] shotcode to place the search control in another column or so that it will be side-by-side with the list. Take a look at this page explaining how to use the search shortcode:

    Using the Search Shortcode

    Changing the size of the image in the singe record is a matter of adding some CSS, there is a place for extra CSS rule in the “Custom CSS” setting of the plugin.

    I also offer an add-on Image Expansion Kit that gives you more control over images and adds new ways to upload images.

    For your last point, you can go a couple of ways…if you’ve got some skills with php and HTML, you can set up a custom template that will give you the kind of responsive layout you’re asking about. Also, just try using the “bootstrap” template may give you what you want.

    [pdb_single template=bootstrap]

    If you want to break the single record display up into parts, you can do that using the “groups” attribute like this:

    [pdb_single groups=main]
    [pdb_single groups=personal]

    Your option on the single record worked perfectly, thank you.

    Sadly, the sort feature is attached to the display, so it won’t allow us to put sort and search side by side in 2 columns, unless we also want to scrunch the display into one column.

    As a maybe, it would be great to get a [pdb_sort] shortcode someday, with the same target_instance= if necessary. Basically I want to do this…(in a very ugly example)

    This is good feedback, I didn’t consider the possibility someone would want to put the sort control in another location…but it’s a good idea.
