  1. Hello!
    When I create a project or publication and use the Person module, why does the Position field disappear when I view projects or publications using the blog or filterable blog module?

    How to make the Person Position field visible in a Blog Grid view?

    Thanks!

    1. Good evening and thank you for waiting.
      Generally, search modules do not run shortcodes. Therefore, the Person module (like any other module) generates a shortcode that can only be rendered by previewing the article or page and not from a module that provides a preview of the article or page.
