I tried a half dozen plugins to try to make a simple (I thought) business card style directory and connections was the only one that had easy/understandable access to settings that allowed me to make one that fit in with the rest of the sites design. I was up and running in about a half hour.
The support Steven provides on the plugin website is incredible, any questions I’ve asked have been responded to within a day.
The paid templates are a great value especially when compared with commercial business directory scripts which are in the hundreds of dollars (which was my next stop if connections didn’t work out). I used the free templates to test functionality and quickly picked up the Market template for it’s added features and design.
Steven did a fantastic job doing some custom plugin set up work for my site. He’s very helpful, explains things thoroughly and gets the job just to my liking. The cost was reasonable as well.
The plugin itself works very well. I’ve used a directory theme before and I much prefer using a directory plugin. It’s just so much more versatile to be able to pick whatever theme you want and add the directory plugin on top of that.
We use this plugin for our internal intranet – it has let us make a very easy to use and well presented directory helping people here access important information easily.
The developers have been very responsive helping me resolve any issues I have had, in good time, making using this plugin completely pain free.
I’m always wary about purchasing software since so much could go wrong (even if it is just a tenner) but the addons for Connections Pro are brilliant and are by far the best option if you’re wanting to start a directory.
There have been some issues regarding the theme messing up the line breaks but Steven has provided amazing support with simple fixes.
If you know even just a little bit of CSS and PHP, the templates become customisable quite easily as the code is well documented and parsed.
Couldn’t ask for a better directory tool!
I have downloaded this free plugin and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a professional directory plugin.
I tried a few and I have 1000’s of paying clients so wanted a top quality directory system for the new evolution of our website.
I was not disappointed. Also, and time I found that I didn’t understand something or needed additional coding assistance, I could either find it in the support forum or my posted queries were answered within a few hours. The best support and customer service I’ve had with any of the plugins/Themes I’ve used.
I can highly recommend this plugin, and the cMap additional in particular is awesome.
I was searching for a plugin to display a directory of staff and clinics on my website, and after wading through several dozen plug-ins, I finally used the right keywords in my search and came across Connections. The free template(s) offer quite a bit of customization, and the support is top notch (I posted a question on the forum and it was answered within the hour). I ended up purchasing one of the paid templates, and now my users are able to search staff by specialty and location in an easy to use interface.
I should add, I work in healthcare, not in IT or website development, but the documentation on this plugin’s site was good enough that I was able to do everything I wanted to create a professional directory, in only a few hours. My confidence was bolstered by knowing the author was there to help me out if I ran into any snags.
Great plugin, great support. Highly recommended!
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.
No easy way to remove the unsightly Categories from displaying if you are not using them. Plugin is amazing other than that but one little option checkbox ruined it from creating a nice plugin. There is so many people asking how to remove it for the last year or more, but author has yet to add that option. Posts are everywhere how to manually edit the CSS code but the author has yet to get the hint.

Have installed Connections on two websites now and just love the power and flexibility it contains in such a simple setup.
As a Chamber of Commerce we run two websites – one for business and chamber members and the other for tourism purposes – different audiences, different websites, different look and feel.
Using CSS we were able to adjust the look and feel of Connections installations to match perfectly with the overall sites’ designs. In addition, via CSS we were able to fully control default display of images, maps, detail, emails and business names. With three levels of Membership “buy-up” on GrandBendTourism, plus addition of Non-Member business listings – we turned default elements on and off via CSS.
We used “Market” templae on GrandBendChamber.ca (although thinking of changing template over to cMap so that it’s responsive). Used “cMap” template on GrandBendTourism.com (our latest install).
Had a few questions and need for support during customization. Simon responded quickly and thoughtfully! Worth every penny. LOVE THIS PLUGIN!
Works nicely with a number of other plugins we have installed, including All in one SEO (Torbert), AntiVirus (Muller), Block Bad Queries (J. Starr), Column-Matic (TwinPictures), Enhanced Text Widget (B. Dell-Vandenburg), Fast Secure Contact Form (M. Challis), GA Google Analytics (J. Starr), IM8 Exclude (Intermedi8), Quick Page Redirect (D. Fischer), Relevanssi Premium (M. Saari), Revolution Slider (ThemePunch), SI Captcha AntiSpam (M. Challis), Simple IP Ban (S. Kovacs), TablePress (T. Bathge), The Weather Network, WordPress File Monitor Plus (S. Cariss).
We’re running WordPress 4.2.3 – on GrandBendTourism.com – a heavily customized version of TwentyTwelve. On GrandBendChamber.ca – customized version of TwentyThirteen.
I have been working with Connections for six months as a developer, and have found it to be a great joy. The author is careful and meticulous, and has constructed the project in such a way that promotes growth and customization, and creates a wonderful working environment for programmers. The code is intelligent and legible, written with the heart of the WordPress source. I have found it to be a great teaching tool and believe that it has a long life ahead of it. I encourage its use for both users and developers.
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!
I’m just getting my arms around Connections and as a newbie, I’ve had many questions. I’ve resisted posting support questions as long as possible, much of what I needed was provided in the excellent documentation. However there were a few things I couldn’t quite get so I posted these to a support forum. Much to my delight, Steven responded quickly and thoroughly. Great support for an excellent product!
I wanted to create a streamlined, easy-to-use, responsive membership directory for an organization with around 120 members and I didn’t want to have to enter all the info from scratch. The combo of Connections, Slim Plus and CSV Import looked like the perfect solution, and they are. Members can simply scroll the list of names to quickly get to the data they need, or use the search box if they prefer.
What I didn’t expect is the superb level of support Steve provides! Over the years I’ve sometimes been lucky enough to find small dedicated software solutions from developers who are eager to respond to users needs but they’re few and far between. I’ve found that here and it’s a huge plus.
I’m confident I made the right choice and look forward to working with some of the customization options as I learn more about them.
