Which geocoding service are you using? You should certainly make sure you or others do not braking any usage limitations that you accepted.

hi lostkobrakai,

you are right, i removed the excel-sheet as it uses google maps api and you are only allowed to use it when you display the results on a map...

i thought google would handle the limitation on their own by just blocking too frequent requests per one IP

edit: they do

{
   "error_message" : "You have exceeded your daily request quota for this API. We recommend registering for a key at the Google Developers Console: https://console.developers.google.com/",
   "results" : [],
   "status" : "OVER_QUERY_LIMIT"
}

It does not use any api key...

Note: The following Maps APIs previously did not require an API console key: Google Maps JavaScript API, Google Static Maps API, Google Street View Image API, Google Maps Geocoding API, Google Maps Directions API, Google Maps Distance Matrix API, Google Maps Elevation API, and Google Maps Time Zone API. This is still supported for legacy applications to ensure backwards compatibility, but is no longer recommended for new applications.

https://developers.google.com/maps/faq

anyway... just don't use my excel - it's nothing google's api was built for :)

I'm getting the following error when trying to use the MarkupGoogleMap module to display a map in a page template:

Error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object

The code I'm using in the page template is:

$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
$map->render($page, 'geocode'); 

It's as if PW can't find the module, but I've got it installed (version 1.0.1).

If I click on the 'check for updates' link for this module it does give the error: Session: Error reported by web service: Unable to find that module

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling but still no good.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm using this module on an installation of PW 2.6.23 rc2

Tony.

Recently MapMarker doesn't convert "48° 52′ 8″ N, 9° 23′ 55″ E" address coordinates to Latitude and Longitude anymore. Any chance this has something to do with upgrading PHP? That's about the only thing that changed. PW 2.7.2 and MapMarker 2.0.6.

Hi,

I start to use the FieldtypeMapMarker for the contacts in the site:

http://dev.producoesindependentes.pt/beltain_new/contactos/

but the map is not rendered, the mao it self is not shown.

I did put the <script> in <head> and the code to render the map is:

<?php
$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
echo $map->render($page, 'google_map', array('width'=>'100%','height'=>'500px'));
?>

I think it is a javascript issue or a google maps javascript issue but it not raise any error.

How can I resolve this issue?

Than you

Hi,

I tried to pass the lat, long and the zoom in the options

<?php
$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
echo $map->render($page, 'google_map', array('width'=>'100%','height'=>'300px', 'lat'=>'38.7237628','long'=>'-9.331723199999942','zomm'=>17));
?>

but didn't do nothing.

I tried that,

<?php
$map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
echo $map->render($page, 'google_map', array('width'=>'100%','height'=>'300px', 'lat'=>38.7237628,'lng'=>-9.331723199999942,'zoom'=>17));
?>

and the map didn't show.

<?php
echo 'lat: '.$page->google_map->lat;
echo '<br/>';
echo 'lng: '.$page->google_map->lng;
?>

and the values where "0.000000".

Well I will try until the map shows,

thank you.

I was receiving that same issue of the lat and lng values being 0. When I tried to run the URL for the geocode, it kept giving me a Request Denied.

I had recently added my own server key and as well as postal codes components (for my own needs), and now can't reproduce the issue for the life of me.

Rather strange error as saving the address through the api was not geocoding correctly, but worked fine on the admin page if I clicked on the address input and clicked off.

I am testing the module within PW 3.0.8 in a simple page with the following code :

<html>
<head>
    <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false'></script>
</head>
<body>

<?php 
    $map = $modules->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
    echo $map->render($page, 'google_maps');
?>

</body>
</html>

I have one error in developper tools :  SyntaxError: expected expression, got ','   9:333

The map does not appear either in backend.

I made a mistake or someone is able to reproduce this ?

Edit:  It suddenly work, you can delete this useless post :-X

I am using the FieldtypeMapMarker module to display a location on a map. The address comes from a different database (see my other topic Parameterized template).

I tried this:

function getMap($object) {
  $map_module = wire('modules')->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
  $page = wire('page');
  $page->map->address = "{$object['strasse']} {$object['hausnummer']}, {$object['plz']} {$object['ort']}";
  var_dump($page->map);
  $rendered_map = $map_module->render($page, 'map');
  return "<div class='sf_map'>$rendered_map</div>";
}

that means, I just set the map address from $object with the members street, house number, zip and city. Such an address string is for example: "Rathausgasse 75, 3011 Bern".

This does not work, however. var_dump() shows the address I want, but the map ignores it. It uses instead the default address I saved in the field.

I found a solution. First I tried to save the field to the Processwire database, but this gave me the willies. It's a race, i. e. what if two people simultaneosly access this page?

After studying the source code of MapMarker I found the geocode() method.

This works now:

function getMap($object) {
  $map_module = wire('modules')->get('MarkupGoogleMap');
  $page = wire('page');
  $page->map->address = "{$object['strasse']} {$object['hausnummer']}, {$object['plz']} {$object['ort']}";
  $page->map->geocode();
  $rendered_map = $map_module->render($page, 'map');
  return "<div class='sf_map'>$rendered_map</div>";
}

Any thoughts?

Hello to all,
since I switched to Processwire 3, I can no longer run the "Map Marker Module".
Attached 2 screenshots of what I see in the backoffice and the frontend.
Any thoughts on this?
 
Thank you very much for helping

Hi, 

I'm having a similar issue. (Version 3.0.15 of processwire)

In the backend the google maps field loads fine (only when the field isn't hidden). But in the front-end I'm getting this:

maps.png

It's possible to drag, but the assets won't load (tiles, buttons). I have no clue why this is happening.

Never mind,

There's something wrong with the css of semantic-ui. It's not an processwire / module issue.  :rolleyes:

Map Marker Map is working smoothly with PW 2.7.2, thanks for all the support tips on this thread...

I want to display a kml file on the map along with my markers.

I've looked at the Google support:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/layer-kml

& tried adding code

var ctaLayer = new google.maps.KmlLayer({
            url: 'http://googlemaps.github.io/js-v2-samples/ggeoxml/cta.kml',
            map: RCDMap.map
          });

to RCDMap.js after line 47...But am struggling to get the kml to display.

Can anybody help with some any pointers? Thank you.

bernhard, thanks for the super speedy reply  :) - you make it look so easy!

Was trying to integrate the code in with the Map Marker Javascript code (from earler in support thread).

I'll try & find the link...

...looks like "RCDMap.js" is a verision of "MarkupGoogleMap.js" from the module (link).

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.
      Download:
      FieldtypeConfigForm.zip
      Edit: 14. August 2018. please delete/uninstall previously downloaded zip

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
