Map Marker Map

The same issue. Running PW 3.0.61 and Map Marker 2.0.6 worked just fine. After upgrading to 2.0.9 and entering my API key I get the above error to any address I try.

I'm having an issue in PW 3.0.62 where the module will only geocode an address when I manually click the checkmark between address and lat/lng off/on when editing the page within the admin. Based on what I've read here, it seems only the client-side geocoder is working?

Additional details:

  • I have both Google Maps and Google Places APIs working without issue on the front-end and have added my Maps key to the module's configuration
  • My MapMarker-based field, "map", has a MapMarker: Error geocoding address notification and I can't find any elaboration
  • Neither API has any issues with my address formatting/default address, with an example being 5 Bloor Street, Toronto, ON M4W 3T3
  • My addresses are mapping properly when I play with the checkbox (status goes from UNKNOWN to OK)
  • I can't trigger the geocoding via the API

Any ideas?

 

 

Hi @Arcturus and @Jozsef,

 

Did you find a solution for this issue? I am running  3.0.84 and am having the same problem.

To always display the map at the center even if the browser resized or the full screen button pressed just use the below function:


google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'resize', function() {
		var center = map.getCenter()
		google.maps.event.trigger(map, "resize")
		map.setCenter(center)
	});

 

The above function that I posted few months ago it's working perfect for Chrome, Firefox & Opera.

On IE11 it's partial working. If the map's full screen button pressed the map is no more centered. On the browser resize is working properly. Anyone knows how to fix this?

I am really stuck here, the map was working fine a few weeks ago but now the address will not geocode automatically, this is a problem as I could have multiple users adding addresses through the api. I have tried adding $p->trackChange('map'); and similar but everytime I have to go in and click on the address field and then click out of it and it works. Any suggestions?

While I am here, how do I get the map markers to not link to a page when someone clicks them.

The Geocode is returning some results in local script - ie,  Japanese is like -  和歌山県.  Is there a way to have it return English?  I know if I search the same place in Google Maps it returns the English equivalent.  I tried adding language=en to the URL in MapMarker.Php but that didn't work.

 

Thanks,

Heather

The only solution I've found is to downgrade the MapMarker module to 2.0.6, I believe. That's the last working version for me.

Hi,

I'm trying to display the title of a page on the map but I can get it.

Ideally I want to display both $page->lieu->title and page->map_lieu->adress.

I couldn't find the way to write it. The only one working is 'lieu' but it display only id page. Can I use a variable in the array?

        'markerTitleField' => 'lieu',   // $page->lieu->title  ??

Thanks

Mel

Not sure if anyone is interested, but I just extended this to support address component fields. Now you can enter the various address components individually and it will automatically populate the final combined address field and geocode the address to lat/long.

image.thumb.png.622315b1d549731b233fe3be3e8a1995.png

I wanted this so I could grab the individual components for displaying a business address in a specific format, rather than relying on what the site editor entered into the combined address field.

You can of course call the components like this:

$page->address->street
$page->address->additional
$page->address->city
$page->address->state
$page->address->postcode
$page->address->country

These are in addition to the existing:

$page->address->address // the combined version
$page->address->lat
$page->address->lng
$page->address->zoom

Is anyone interested in this version? Not sure if @ryan would accept a PR or not?

Too late for me since I did that in my /ready.php. But would certainly use it in another project! ;-)

I am curious how you handled it in ready.php - did you create the additional component inputs, or was it extracting the components from the single combined address field? I have done something similar before, but the problem is that you can't guarantee how site editors will enter the address that way.

The Google Maps API have just been updated and the "center" is now working on all browsers:

  • When the map is resized, the map center is fixed
    • The full-screen control now preserves center.
    • There is no longer any need to trigger the resize event manually.

Nothing special. Just a concatenate from values like this:

$page->map_lieu->address = "{$page->no_civique} {$page->rue}, {$page->ville}, {$page->codepostal} {$page->pays}";

Data were entered from FormBuilder, with fields similar to yours. I'm now at ~150 adresses collected and I just have a couple which didn't geolocalize (generally a typo).  Status varied to "rooftop to geometric center". My only concerns is if you get a "Zero results" status, on front-end, the square map appears but with nothing. I'm planning to display the map with a "if status>=1", just to be sure.

Interesting discussion about extra address fields.

I created a fieldtype 'AddressGeoNames' that consists of separate text inputs for country, city, postcode, lat, lng etc. where field values are verified and partially auto populated through geonames.org API.

This is a standalone Inputfield that geocodes through the google maps api.

But it can also be connected to an InputfieldLeafletMapMarker field so that the given address will be rendered as pin on the map. The pin can also be manually repositioned and writes back lat/lng to the AddressGeonames field.

I am currently using this in one live project with about 1500 users and they seem to get along fine with data input and geocoding.

This is how it looks like when used next to a InputfieldLeafletMapMarker field:
addressgeonames.thumb.png.7811ec93b18df1d5952ce7d9b93044a3.png

Planning on adding support for GoogleMapsMarker, too and eventually releasing it on github. Not quite ready yet, though. But if anyone is interested in the concept, I could share what I have so far.

Really nice work on the Map InputFields folks!

I need to do something similar next week for a travel company. They want to plot a route on a map and I have been wondering about the best way to go about this.

My thoughts so far would be to tie a repeater control to a map, let the user use the marker to plot the route, then add the coordinates into a repeater control. 

This approach using jQuery opens up all kinds of issues in terms of managing the UX design for removing steps in the route, adding individual steps into the repeater, synchronizing the plotted route with the repeater control entries from the marker etc....

Wondered if any one else has run into similar UX request and found a better way around it.

Hi guys, 

Do you have the map marker module working in version 2.8 or version 3? In processwire admin, I can see the map, but then when I go to the page where the map should be showing, I'm getting an error: " MarkupGoogleMap Error: Please add the maps.google.com script in your document head. The map is not showing on the page. " 

I have fresh processwire installation

it seems that the module injects the google maps script before html tag, it seems to be causing the problem... I'm not sure how to solve this

 

<script type='text/javascript' src='/site/modules/FieldtypeMapMarker/MarkupGoogleMap.js'></script><div id='mgmap1' class='MarkupGoogleMap' style='width: 100%; height: 300px;'></div><script type='text/javascript'>if(typeof google === 'undefined' || typeof google.maps === 'undefined') { alert('MarkupGoogleMap Error: Please add the maps.google.com script in your document head.'); } else { var mgmap1 = new MarkupGoogleMap(); mgmap1.setOption('zoom', 12); mgmap1.setOption('mapTypeId', google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID); mgmap1.init('mgmap1', 40.712776, -74.005974); mgmap1.addMarker(40.712776, -74.005974, '/en/about/', 'About', ''); }</script><!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>

when I paste the code inside <head> manually, then I can see the map on the page where it should be visible. 

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks for this fork - a very useful enhancement. If you think you might submit a pull request I saw a few things that could be good to include.

1. The default address setting in the field config doesn't work in this fork. Maybe it needs separate fields for street, city, etc?

2. Perhaps you could integrate this fix for ajax-loaded inputfields: https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/FieldtypeMapMarker/issues/19

3. Because the inputfield places the text inputs inside paragraph tags, there is an excessive amount of vertical space between rows of inputs (in the default admin theme at least - I didn't check the others). Solutions could be to change from <p> to <div> wrappers, or to add a rule to InputfieldMapMarker.css to reduce the margin on paragraphs.

Edit...

4. Would it be possible to avoid the trailing commas in the Address field if some of the components aren't filled out?

Hi @Robin S - glad you're finding the fork useful.

1. I can't see a difference in behavior from the main repo - it looks to me like the lat/lng get populated when creating a new page, but not the address field. I think this actually makes sense to me because I think it's really just designed to give the site editor a local starting view, rather than an exact address. Am I missing something?

2. Happy to incorporate the AJAX fix - thanks.

3. I honestly don't mind the spacing. It is applied differently in default and UiKit themes which makes it a bit of a pain. Probably changing the <p> to <div> as you suggested might make this a little cleaner. Perhaps you'd consider a PR to my repo so you can get it looking how you'd like it - better to have someone tweak this who has a definite opinion on it :) 

4. I am looking at this now - agreed that this should be fixed, but I noticed a bit of a dilemma - currently I trigger the geocode request like this:

            if($street.val() && $city.val() && $state.val() && $postcode.val() && $country.val()) {
                $addrComponent.blur(function() {
                    geoCodeAddr();
                });
            }

In other words, don't trigger it until all subfields are complete (except the additional_address which isn't added to the address which gets geocoded anyway). So if you're in a situation where not all subfields are filled out, it won't geocode. I don't really want to have a manual geocode button - would rather it was automatic - what do you think?

 

As for submitting a PR back to the main repo - I don't think there is really much point - I have a 4 year old PR there already which has been ignored :) Not that I want to have multiple forks of modules floating around either, but not sure what other option there is.

Thanks @adrian, I'll have a think about those things.

I realise now that I have made a lot of changes myself to FieldtypeMapMarker for different projects - every time I use it I find something that doesn't really suit me or work too well. Maybe I should go through all of that and consolidate it into my own fork. Then we could possibly look at where it makes sense to combine our forks together.

Yeah, I think that would be great - I think we need one feature-rich version going forward that has all these improvements. I don't expect Ryan will accept a PR, but I do remember sometime ago he suggested I could take over this module if I wanted - personally I don't really want to because I already have too many to support, but perhaps if we both had commit rights on the main repo we could share the load?

@ryan

it would be great if there was an option to save the map (using static maps api?) to an image file locally and that local image would update should the map field values change. This would mean not needing to use an API key since the traffic would be to your hosted image and not making requests to google maps api each visit. So to the cms user they are seeing gmaps as usual but the cms saves a static version of their work to an image that is used on the output side.

Also it would be neat to have a checkbox that enabled to  use JS/CSS to provide artificial zoom/map moving function using the static map image assuming it was at a decent resolution/dimensions and perhaps marker placement as well. Otherwise if the checkbox is un-selected, it will show a map image of defined dimensions with no zoom or bells & whistles, etc.

Hi

I have frequently error : "initMap is not a function"

But the map is generally displaying correctly. Sometimes I have to refresh the page to get it.

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

    • By Robin S
      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂

      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)

      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).
