Show address field in Member Directory

Is it possible to have 5 fields in each column on the Search results layout?

This would enable a member address, city, state, zip and country to be in one column, rather than split across 2 columns.

~~ or ~~ can we add the city, state, zip to be one field ?? that would also help solve the address from flowing over two columns.

We currently publish a paper member directory and would love to get away from it by having it available here.

thanks a bunch,

    Allow zip code to be shown next to state in directory. Only 3 lines allowed per column and nowhere to put it. Doesn't look right in the column with the website. Needs to be with the address, versus having to click on the company name.

    We are a brand new WA user, we are just beta testing our WA web site. We have this problem with city state zip, and printing birthdays (month and day) in the directory. I used the workaround to have the new members enter a field with the city, state, zip together as well as seperate and month and day together as well as seperate.

    One of the first comments I got was, Why am I entering things twice? It makes the software look unsophisticated when it is not, in so many other ways. Not a big confidence builder for the new members or new users.

    Yes! We have this problem too. We did a work around and make members enter city, state, zip separately and combined. Makes us look silly but it helps the directory format. We have the same problem with birthdays (mmdd). If we want to sort on the them they have to be separate fields but who wants the birthday to take 2 lines in the directory.

    Three rows in member directory gadget are not enough for some usual cases. For example: if you want to show full address, you need four fields: street, city, state and zipcode.

    This issue can be solved by adding rows or by allowing users to compose row from several fields (as it represented with first name and last name, for example).

    We found this limitation to be just plain silly. We ended up using 4 different fields, one each for City, State, and Zip, then a 4th for all of them combined. When I imported the majority of the members from an Excel spreadsheet, I used concatenate to combine the fields into one field for the import so most members haven't noticed how silly it is. But now when we add members one by one and they are supposed to enter their own information, the limitation is clear that the software can't assemble these pretty standard elements itself. We don't need more columns, we need the ability to display City, State, Zip on one line.

    I would say that the problem is not in number of fields to be shown in each column, but in absence of special address field that shows address in special way (not field by field). \

    Still I agree that it is reasonable to increase a number of fields from 3 to at least 5 in each member directory column.

    This capability would add significantly to the value and readability of the member directory

    Yes, it would be REALLY helpful to be able to put city and postal code (zip) on the same line in the custom layouts.

    Has this already been addressed?
