Support » Plugin: Business Directory Plugin | GeoDirectory » Does this have a maximum radius from default location

  • Resolved kevin heath



    I assume that this plugin has a maximum mileage radius from the default location that you add places to.

    I’m just doing a test to see if it’s worth moving one of my sites over to this new plugin from geothemes and everytime I try to add a place I get a pop up saying I can only add places within the city that was chosen as default.

    I want to put together a map of nature reserves in Wales as in but obviously this plugin does not operate on a national basis.

    You have a multi-location addon but will that allow me to add places on a national basis or will have have to add every city and village as a location and build the map that way – which I won’t because it is not cost effective, I’ll stick with the geothemes I’ve got.

    With GeoDirectory you can’t use a whole region as default location.

    You can only define a city/region/country.

    The multilocation however doesn’t work like GeoTheme, you don’t need to add all locations in advance. Whenever a user adds a new entry for a city that it’s not listed yet, the new location is automatically addeed.

    You as admin have the option to merge (in case of dupes), edit, delete any new location created by users while adding new listings.

    We are discussing adding an option for core plugin to allow users to disable the city level and work with region country, or disable city and regions and work with country only.

    We are also considering adding extra validations to multilocation to allow the site admin to determin if he wants users to be able to add new listings for any location, or only location included in regions/ countries he definies.

    The plugin is brand new and there are endless possibilities to imporove it and we are going to implemnt anything we think it’s necessary to make it stand out.

    Hi paoltaia

    Thanks for the reply.

    I’ve been able to disable the distance restriction so it should work for what I need.

    Does the events addon also have a distance restriction on it or will it list all events that gets posted?

    Events works exactly like places, adding start & end date & time.
    I’m almost positive that what you did for places will work for events too.

    I’m marking this as solved.


    Hi Kevin,

    How have you disable the distance restriction?


    Hi bclerigo

    Sorry I can not remember now how I did it. It was not a simple operation as you needed to change quite a few lines in the main code.

    I don’t use this plugin any more as I find geo-my-wp much more ‘wordpress friendly’ in the way it works with other plugins.
