    well ideally the user could add the shortcode into the content editor. If it needs hard coded then i might as well create a custom template to display the sign up sheets.

    the sign up sheet displays in the custom field no problem. it’s when you click to view the list that it breaks and just returns . nothing . in the space where the info should appear.

    it works if i use a the_content() .. i’m pretty sure ACF allows the use of shortcodes ~ might be worth your team testing.
    ACF

    I have a work-around for now.

    Also – different problem – enabling Sign up Sheets Pro DISABLES the Open/ Close functionality of content areas in the back end.

    maybe i’ll post another thread about that.

    did u get this resolved?

    (@venkmanuk)

    I got an email from support with some more troubleshooting steps, but did a little more testing on my theme:

    I’m using custom fields for pretty much all the content areas on the site, and as it turns out, Sign up sheets seems to rely on the_content. It fails if you don’t place the shortcode into the standard WordPress content area – this meant i needed to create a custom page template just for Sign up Sheets that uses the_content to display post content.

    blah.
    fixed now.

    it might be good for the developer to offer another way to specify where the list appears – maybe a css class for a containing element or something.

    ** update **

    If i install the free version i get sign up sheet details, and also a form, i can complete the form and instead of confirmation i get:

    “Error adding signup. All spots are filled. Current Signups: 1, Total Spots:1”

    Going back to the sign up sheet I can see that my name has been added when i signed up – so that error was triggered for no reason ( or it was triggered automatically when i signed up and then the script auto-checked if there were any spots left ) … i can’t have that error happening every time someone signs up, and besides that i need the extra features paid for in the Pro version ( and the support please! ) …

    The Pro version still fails to show me more details or anything.

    What’s next guys?

    i had to turn off wp-debug because the client was looking at the site. hopefully you got enough time to look at it on Friday. If not, let me know. thanks!

    Hi there,
    thanks for getting back – i’m on a bit of a time crunch with client on this one!

    I didn’t have debug in wp-config so added it, and also urned on detailed error reporting in the sign up sheets settings – still get a blank page. hope it’s something silly i’ve missed.

    I am happyo to share a url, i will email you the link.

    oh haha that wasn’t ever going to work.

    wrote myself the solution tho! [ Hi-5 !! ]

    it’s in my functions.php file as part of the custom walker mentioned above ^ … i took some pointers on how to find author info from the WP install’s comment-template.php … but really it just came down to a nice little if else deal-y.

    // Avoid just using comment author
    if ( $comment->user_id && $user = get_userdata( $comment->user_id ) ) {
    
    $author = $user->first_name;
    $authorb = $user->last_name;
    $authorn = $user->nickname;
    
    	if ($author||$authorb) {
    		printf( __( '<cite class="fn">%1$s %2$s</cite>' ), $author, $authorb );
    	} elseif ($authorn) {
    		printf( __( '<cite class="fn">%1$s</cite>' ), $authorn );
    	};
    
    } else {
    
     printf( __( '<cite class="fn">%s</cite>' ), get_comment_author() );
    
    };

    I might try this, needs tested but

    if ($comment->user_id) {
    $user=get_userdata($comment->user_id);
    $first_name = get_userdata($comment->first_name);
    $last_name = get_userdata($comment->last_name);
    echo $user->$first_name $last_name
    } else { comment_author(); }

    hmm, maybe. i’d rather avoid plugins…

    looks interesting / useful warren, thanks. i’ll try that out.

    on your website it’s not too obvious where you have pjax implemented but i think i found it. it’s used in the on topic theme..

    Thread Starter venkmanuk

    (@venkmanuk)

    oh really?

    hmm, might be a cue to go and learn some JSON!

    i’d love it to be a little less (hacky) to get the kind of interactions we’re talking about. like a library of interactions that do animations for page load. something else to work on i guess!

    Thread Starter venkmanuk

    (@venkmanuk)

    hello!

    yeah i was thinking in terms of custom build.

    that one you liked is interesting – it looks like objects are loaded off screen and then animated in once they’ve loaded? but the url switches immediately. pretty cool!

    besides knowing how exactly to do it, the visual problem is we’re left with that spinner.

    there are some sites using a kind of greyed out placeholder content instead of spinners. facebook for one… it sort of fakes a faster load time.
