Add connections is missing

12 years 3 weeks ago #50476 by lwatkins
OK I feel like an idiot that I can't figure this out.

I have community builder installed and have Enable Connections set at yes. The problem is that I can't figure out how people create the connections. I don't see anything in the profile that says add me as a friend. I also don't see anything under the Manage Connections tab.

So how do people go about creating those connections?

I have searched and found several ideas such as:

"The Connections Tab is empty because you have no current connections. In order to connect to someone you first need to locate the other person's profile and visit it. You can use the CB Lists user menu item and find someone you like and click on the list line to get to the users profile. You can then Connection->Request Connection menu item (located on the top of the profile you are viewing) in order to request to connect to this person. You are also allowed to send a personal request. Once the other person accepts the request you will be connected and your Connections Tab will reflect this."

The problem is that the Request Connection Menu item is missing. How do I add one or activate it?

By the way this is what I have in my connections tab:

Enable connections: Yes
Display Type: Public
Display Connection Path: Yes
Mutual Consent: yes
Notification Method: PMS and Email
Cross Connections: Yes
Connection Types: (A listing of types)

I have done the following as well and they are all set-up and published:

Make sure connections are enabled in the CB configuration. ~ done
Make sure the connections plugin is published. ~ done
Make sure the connections tab is published. ~ done

I have discovered that the "add Connection" is not working either. And please do not post a link to the FAQ because it doesn't solve the missing link problem that many seem to have. The connections tab on profiles shows but there is NO ADD CONNECTION link anywhere on any profile even though everything is published, configured, etc.

Any ideas?

Just retested - works ok for me.

Actually, I am an idiot... I didn't have the cb_menu published.

By the way, is there a way to make the menu show as a module? I seen this done at templateplazza.com with their comuna template.
