featured member gadget allow access to all fields
The Featured member Gadget is a great addition. We would like to have the ability to access any contact or member fields with this gadget. As an example, we are a league of artists and use the store to sell member art online. To make a page that will populate automatically, we currently have a page that uses a page template to have the correct header and footer, with an additional Back to Shop by Artist link. Then, we use the Featured Member gadget to show the main member photo, their first and last name, their organization name and their artist statement.
We then have a row with the Cart and instructions.
We then have the Catalog gadget to show that member's artwork using product tags for member.
We then follow that with another featured member gadget but this time we show a 2nd photo and the links from member fields to an external website and two social media accounts.
While this is better than copying and pasting to make this page, it still doesn't allow us to layout the fields where we want them and we can't put in all the fields we would like.
Essentially, this is the only gadget that provides access to contact and member fields without programming. We think that having gadgets that provide access to groups of fields would make it much easier to build a more dynamic website without programming and this is one example.
You can see this if you go to our shop by artist and then select an artist. I am just now implementing this though so it should be available shortly.
