Events Manager

    For anyone interested, I've just blogged how to get a locations map with a directions link on a location page.

    Thanks to the flexibility of Events Manager, it's pretty easy to drop in another map plugin and use it to get directions. Nice one, Marcus and the team!

    cheers!

    btw, not sure if it helps but we added #_LOCATIONLONGITUDE/LATITUDE in the latest update

    G'day Marcus, I did look at that first (the release note is what prompted me to look at this). There might be a plugin that this works for, but not mine as mine needs latitude,longitude passed as a string in a shortcode call. The simplest approach for me was the placeholder.

    I'd be interested to see if there is a plugin that handles these new parameters though -- I reckon there might be, as I know some plugins use data attributes or other HTML markup to define the map centre / marker location, and it might just need a custom location template to trigger them.

    cheers,
    Ross

    actually, yes there is one (which actually promted me to make these new placeholders)

    I figured something like that must have prompted the new placeholders. The plugin link fails, maybe it's changed its name. Does it do directions?

    Sometime, I'm going to have to do a rewrite of my map plugin so that it is more accessible to AJAX themes, and when I do, it will probably handle your new lat/long placeholders. Until then (which probably won't be this year!) I have that custom placeholders method at least :)

    cheers,
    Ross
