Game Locations
[resolved] Links and Description (6 posts)

    Hi,

    Couple of issues:

    1) The link field is not long enough if I need to use a custom link. Sometimes the Google lookup address is not correct, and I need to put in the google link that places the marker right on the spot - however when I paste, it cuts it off.

    2) Would be helpful to have a display description that is not part of the lookup address. When I put in the location, I would like to put either the team name or the rink name. The team name Google will never recognize and the rink name only about 50% of the time. This results in Google coming back and giving a list of locations spread over a wide area.

    Just some suggestions to make a great product better - hope they help!

    Thanks

    Hi Howdy44,
    I apologize for the delayed response. Life intervenes. :^)

    1. I thought I extended this field in a previous version, but I will check and up it again. It's on my list. Stay tuned.
    2. Good idea. I'll put that on the list. Stay tuned.

    Version 0.3 addresses both these issues and is now available.

    1. The Custom URL field is now 256 characters.
    2. To accomplish request 2, use the team name or whatever you want in the title, then create a custom URL from Google Maps. That's much easier in terms of backwards compatibility.

    Enjoy!

    Mark:

    Great plugin! I have a question, can I run two different sets of location tables?
    I need to implement an Away Games Table and a Home Games Table. I know you can do that in your other plugin "game schedules".

    If there is any way you can help me, I'll appreciated! Thanks.

    Mrrod.

    Hi Mrrod,
    Sorry, the plugin doesn't support that right now.
