Connections is fantastic! Along with the cMap plugin , it gives us everything we need for a business directory. We had an odd issue that occurred and the developer took excellent care of us, had great communication, and solved all of our issues! We would highly recommend Connections and cMap together.
Plugin is great - support from Developer Steven is top notch!
I use to use the directory press plugin but it turned into monster. Connections is far more flexible and very well supported.
Absolutely love this plugin! Works, does what we need!
I just downloaded this plugin excited from all the positive reviews I've read and the overwhelming positive ratings from other users. Made two people in the directory and went to show it on the website, but the names would not show. No picture, no name, no information, nada. I found the alphabet header modifier, added that and it showed the first letter of the last name of my two people, but would not show them.
The website is so impossible to find exactly how to fix this. It says all I have to do it input the [connections] shortcode. They lied.
We are using Connections plugin to our clients' sites because it works great. Support is responsive to my queries and very excellent! I would definitely recommend this plugin to those who need a small or large directory business directory in their websites.
This plugin is simply awesome; perfectly structured, with the end user in mind, and packed with a ton of options, even in its most basic version. The very fact that I came across such detail and good work in the free version was what made me go for the premium features too. They are totally worth it.
To top it all off, Steve's level of support, help, and dedication to the users of his plugin is very hard to match, and impossible to beat. Just look at the Support Forum. If only all available WordPress products were this way. Thank you!
What sets Connections Pro apart from other plugin developers in the online directory space is that their plugins work as advertised ... few conflicts, the promised features work, and the developer doesn't overpromise what's offered with each template and extension - they do what they say they're going to do, which is becoming increasingly rare in the WP plugin universe :(
(Plus, the pricing? Super affordable for small businesses like ours.)
And, more than that, Steven's customer support is legendary! I don't know how he does it, but questions in the support forum on his site are typically answered within a day, 2 at the most - and, they're real answers. I asked a question yesterday, Steven replied overnight, but he anticipated something about my question that I hadn't considered and provided more details in his answer that saved me a ton of time today ...
If you're looking for online directory plugins, start with Connections Pro - you'll be very glad you did!
I looked at a lot of options in setting up an online private directory for our church members and settled on the Connections plugin for meeting all the needs. Initially it took a little bit of work to get it configured to meet our specific needs, but once it was setup it worked really great.
However one thing I must point it is the excellent support on this plugin, Steve does an excellent job responding to questions and assisting the users to best meet their needs, and this has been the difference between making a good plugin a great one, the top notch support and assistance. I'd have no hesitations in recommending investing in this plugin.
Great Plugin and a very rapid support.
Congratulations to Steven !
