[resolved] Problem with map display (10 posts)

    I have a small problem with the map display. It seems to work but not as supposed... when I select one of the Yelp categories it shoes nothing or not enough of them : http://www.laurusdesign.ca/estateweb/?page_id=9

    Restaurants works but displays only some of the 100 restaurants that are near that address and if I select banks or schools nothing!

    Should I configure something else to tell yelp to display more results ?

    Please help.

    Hi there,

    Schools come from Education.com, which currently doesn't serve Canada. So, no schools for Canada.

    Businesses (including restaurants) are delivered via Yelp within 3 miles of the property or your point of interest. There is nothing you have to do - we don't control how many and which records are being returned via Yelp API at this point.

    Well this is not good for me than but there is something wrong because I my iPhone if I use yelp it gives me like 50 different restaurant near that address and 15 banks and so on...

    Do you have an idea of what can cause this?

    According to Yelp API documentation, the number of returning records is limited to 25 or by requested radius, which in our case is set to 3 miles. You should be able to adjust the radius within the shortcode (or in the dialog window when clicking on Yelp icon in the page editor tools/formatting panel).

    There are no other restrains whatsoever. I don't know if Yelp API provides exactly the same data set as they use in their native iPhone application... I keep seeing similar differences between Google Maps API and their actual Google Search application.

    How do you change the attributes from the shortcode? Should I go in the css of yelp?

    Thank you

    Here is a video I did some time ago http://screenr.com/CTO it's about schools, but you can change radius for Yelp exactly the same way. The Yelp tab is at the top of the same dialog window.

    Hello,

    The problem is still not solve but yelp suggested using API 2 instead of 1 ! How will I set up API 2 with your plugin?

    Thank you

    There is no simple way to switch the API to a different version. When the plugin was developed, API 2 wasn't around, and even now it's still only in beta stage.

    ...but there is a complicated way?

    Before I can make any changes, I need to learn what the difference between the APIs and their implementation. Then update the code or write new one if needed. This is not something I'm looking into doing in the nearest future, but you're welcome to fork the plugin and make all the necessary changes yourself - it is free and under GPL.
