Support » Plugin: WPCasa » Search and Map not working (properly)

  • Hello, thanks for offering a free version of your plug-in.

    Unfortunately it does not work for me:
    1. the search does not work with all items
    2. the map does not show at all

    It would be nice, if you could help me.

    Hello,

    thanks a lot for your report.

    1. Search
    For the search to work properly, there needs to be a page which contains the [wpsight_listings] shortcode and that page needs to be assigned as the basic listings page through the WPCasa Settings in WP-Admin > WPCasa > Settings. This is required since WPCasa utilizes the default search functionality given in WordPress and without a difference it would show up blog posts and listings on the same search results page.

    2. Map
    Unfortunately I’m currently not sure what exactly isn’t working here, but have you signed up for a Google Maps API Key already and have added this in the WPCasa Settings? This is required by Google since last year in order to make use of embedded maps. Without knowing more about this issue I guess this might get solved with adding a Google Maps API Key. If that still doesn’t help please let me know more about this issue (eg. what did you try to have the map show up? where did you enter the [wpcasa_listings_map] shortcode? Did you try to use different address for the properties? And everything else what comes to your mind).

    All the best

    Hallo,
    Thanks for your suggestions. But as far as I can see, I did everything as suggested.

    1. Search
    Seams to work now. But I would like to filter bed- and bathroom so, that it shows results only, if it has minimum XX “rooms” (used here differently)

    2. Map
    At least it does show now a map without data (maybe my new API key is not active yet) after first search: http://screen-b.de/chorum/auftrittsorte/
    But here: http://screen-b.de/chorum/auftrittsorte-karte/ nothing is visible though it has [wpsight_listings_map].

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    1. Search
    This is actually the default behaviour already. The search returns only those listings which meet the minimum criteria.

    2. Map
    Yes, your API Key throws quite a few errors which you can see in the browsers console.

    Google Maps JavaScript API warning: InvalidKey https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#invalid-key
    Google Maps JavaScript API error: RefererNotAllowedMapError
    https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/error-messages#referer-not-allowed-map-error
    

    Best make sure to not add any restrictions during your tests and check if your API Key is properly configured. That being said you also need to add your billing details to the Google Cloud Platform in order to validate your API Key.

    All the best
