Geo Mashup
Filter pins by taxonomy terms (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I am using custom post types to display stores on a map.
    I have a taxonomy for "brands" with terms being the various brands.

    I would like to filter pins on the map according to which brands you check.

    Ideally, I would like the map to display everything by default and display a list of brands (from the brands sold taxonomy) underneath.

    Once a brand (or multiple brands) is checked, the map only displays the stores that sell the brand.

    This assumes there is a custom post type called "store", a taxonomy named "brands" and terms in that taxonomy like (pepsi, coke, sprite, 7up...).

    I ran across something like this for categories, but none of my categories are relevant for this example (using custom post types). This also makes me wonder how hard it would be to port the current use of categories in the settings page to custom post type taxonomies. I'd love to be able to use different icons for each term in my brand taxonomy...

    I hope someone can help. This plugin really adds a lot of style and functionality and now that i've had a taste, I really want to be able to use this!

    Thanks,
    C.

    What's really needed is a major enhancement to Geo Mashup:

    I believe it's possible to code individual cases as a Geo Mashup customization with less effort, but still significant.

    Ah yes I see...

    What is the development status for this plugin? I wouldn't mind making a contribution to help out. And i'm sure there are a few people who would be willing to do the same considering how active the Google Group and WordPress forum threads are, and for the swiftness of your responses as well.

    Donations encourage me to provide support. I understand why many plugin authors are moving to paid support - it takes a lot of time.

    Development happens either through volunteer efforts or as part of my freelance work. As such it can be a struggle to get bigger features implemented without a client behind them.

    I'm always open to ideas, especially ideas that free up time for me to focus on development...

    I'm using v1.4 and this code:

    <?php echo GeoMashup::map('map_content=global&map_post_type=yourCPTname') ?>

    Now the global map displays markers from Custom Post Types, but clicking on in the baloon says: Nothing Found...
