Support » Plugin: Basic Google Maps Placemarks » Map search?

  • Hi,

    I’ve tried searching the forums but I haven’t found any information regarding a map search, so I was wondering whether or not it was possible to do a search for a location by zip code, address, etc.

    Currently I’m using a somewhat similar plugin from the codecanyon marketplace but support has been non-existent for many months now and the plugin was just taken off the marketplace a few days ago. The map plugin can be seen on used on http://www.foodchinese.com .

    Currently everything is working fine but I was thinking about maybe porting the info over to this plugin because of the discontinued support. The only thing I was unsure about was the search.

    Thanks!

    No, it doesn’t support that.

    Okay, thanks for the quick response!

    Leo,

    I’m not sure what your level of skill is with PHP/HTML, but I do have that working here: http://pastebin.com/gc5VxRhR. It’s not pretty, but it does allow you to search the map.

    Thanks a million for the code Jesse! I’ll save and look it over. Would you be able to post a link to your site that has the working code?

    Leo,

    sorry. replace the POST methods with GET as I was trying to get the map to load with an ajax request instead of reloading the page. As for a site, I don’t actually have a live site as I’m still trying to work on implementing a few features.

    ah, okay, thanks for that =)

    Hi jesse.t,
    would it be possible for you to upload once more the code you sent to Leosk8ter? I’ve tried the link above but its not working anymore.
    Thanks

    here ya go : http://pastebin.com/LaZxJbuT

    Thanks for the code Leosk8ter,

    I’ve copy it in my functions.php and in my post and the search box and map is being displayed, however the searching is not working for me. Could you tell me how should it be used?

    Thank you so much!

    josep ,

    I’m afraid that I can’t be of much help. Make sure to follow Jesse’s advice of replacing the POST with the GET. If that doesn’t work, I guess try to see if you can reach Jesse directly. I had saved the code a few months back in case I needed it, but I never got around to using this plugin. Sorry.

    Hi jesse.t,

    That code link seems to be broken. Can you give a new link, or post the code??

    Thanks so much!

    Hi josepmon,

    have you found a solution for the problem? I’ve got the same here.
    And for my understanding: Is this a search for the added markers/list entries or a general search?

    jesse.t, thanks for the code!

    Can you post the code again? Sorry. Or is there some way to make this more public because currently there are virtually no plugins that allow address submissions to a map, then searches by zip code for those submissions.
