Map Marker Map

Recommended Posts

OK, I need some help with this. This is my setup:

Dealers

-Australia

--Dealer 1

--Dealer 2

I would like a map on the Dealers page showing a marker for each dealer. Is there a way to have the marker link go to an anchor tag I have set for the country heading on the same page?

echo "<div id='map'></div>"; //div to show in template map

$js = "<script type='text/javascript'>";
$js .= "RCDMap.options.mapTypeId = google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP;";
$js .= "\nRCDMap.init('map', 0, 0);";

$dealers = $pages->get("/dealers/")->find("template=dealer");
foreach($dealers as $marker) {
$js .= "\nRCDMap.addMarker('{$marker->title}', '{$marker->url}', {$marker->map_marker->lat}, {$marker->map_marker->lng});";
}
$js .= "\nRCDMap.fitToMarkers();";
$js .= "</script>";
echo $js;

It should be that second argument to RCDMap.addMarker, where you could specify whatever URL (or anchor) you want:

RCDMap.addMarker('some title', '/some/url/', lat, lng);

RCDMap.addMarker('some title', '#some_anchor', lat, lng);

Ugh, thanks Ryan, it seems so obvious now....in my defence, it was late last night I posted that.

Although how would I grab the anchor link of the parent of each marker i.e. #australia rather than #dealer1?

Edit: Got it!

$js .= "\nRCDMap.addMarker('{$marker->title}', '#{$marker->parent->title}', {$marker->map_marker->lat}, {$marker->map_marker->lng});";

In the admin the map doesn't load fully if the field is set to be collapsed on page load. I think it is because width is set as 100% rather than setting a size explicitly.

.InputfieldMapMarkerMap {
width: 100%;
height: 300px;
}

Another factor is that I don't think the MapMarker works when placed in other tabs. I think gmaps probably just needs to be visible when the editor is rendered in order for everything to work optimally.

Yep, there is a problem when gmap is hidden. This happened to me on the frontend of a site where I was using jqueryUi to show the map, and apparently it's very common with lightboxes. The problem is that, if you are using display: none; to hide the map, it first gets rendered with 0px size, and this is what jquery's .hide() uses. The solution would be to use visibility:hidden; or position it absolutely outside of the screen instead. But I think this wouldn't be easy to do in the admin, since it's using jqueryUi...

I have recently also a problem with the plugin. The address will not be geocoded.

How can I set the value status from my own form?

$mitgliedPage->geocode->address = $form['strasse'].', '.$form['plz'].' '.$form['ort'];
$mitgliedPage->geocode->status = ...?

Thank you for your help and the great work here!

To Geocode from the API side, you need to set the address field and save the page:

$page->map->address = '411 Holly Road, Hopkins, MN';
$page->save();

If that doesn't do it, you may sometimes need to give $page a hint:

$page->trackChange('map');
$page->save();

If it still doesn't work, you might want to double check that your PHP install supports allow_url_fopen.

The 'status' field is not meant to be set by you. It is set by Google Maps geocoder.

ryan - this is an amazing module! I'm just using it on a website I'm building and it is spot on :)

Just a note to others: I originally had a separate Address field, but you don't need that with this module. I wasn't sure how much you could customise the address input, but you can do whatever you like within reason.

What I mean is Google is pretty forgiving - you can put things like "Somewhere over the rainbow, Rydal, Ambleside, LA22 9LX" then it will just take the parts of the address it understands and find the location from that which essentially allows you to begin the address however you like (useful if you want to put a specific brand name or other title in there at the beginning). What you can't then do of course is drag and drop the pin as the address changes again, but so far the pins have been spot on for me since they're using UK postcodes and I'm picking items in the wilderness for now.

I've also been putting commas in so that when I output the address on the page it can do a new line in the address based on the commas.

Thanks, Pete. You just saved me a load of work. (Why didn't I think of that?)

If you uncheck the checkbox separating the address and the lat/lng boxes, you can adjust the coordinates separately from the address, or vice versa.

The above uses my RCDMap class. Feel free to grab it if you find it helpful. You'll want to view the source on any of those URLs above to see how it works. http://www.di.net/al...ripts/RCDMap.js

An addition to the RCDMap.js to contol the zoom level if there's only one marker ( ryan script needs at least 2 markers to set the zoom level, wich is nice if you've more then one marker )

Just replace the fitToMarkers at the bottom of the script & it wil work for 1 marker with zoom level 10, or the zoom level depending on multiple markers.

fitToMarkers: function() {
   if(RCDMap.numMarkers == 1 ) {
       RCDMap.map.setZoom(10);
   } else {
       var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
       for(var i = 0; i < RCDMap.numMarkers; i++) {
           var latLng = RCDMap.markers[i].position;
           bounds.extend(latLng);
       }
       RCDMap.map.fitBounds(bounds);
   }
}

Hi ryan

Just tried to integrate the MapMarker address field with search and it won't let me. Am I doing something wrong?

My selector is as follows:

$matches = $pages->find("map_marker.address%=$q, limit=50"); 

I think I might just be being thick :)

FieldtypeMapMarker doesn't implement a getMatchQuery method, which is required in order to support any operators that don't exist in MySQL. For instance, MySQL knows what "=" and ">" are, but it doesn't know what "%=" is. So I'm guessing you are getting a "Operator '%=' is not implemented in FieldtypeMapMarker" error message.

The second issue is that there isn't actually a field named 'address' in the DB, as this fieldtype represents it with the default 'data' field. Meaning you would just refer to it as "map_marker" (or whatever you field name is) rather than "map_marker.address". But the truth is, since we're using 'address' as in this Fieldtype at runtime, we really should allow it for queries too. Try adding this to your FieldtypeMapMarker.module, which should solve both issues: 

public function getMatchQuery($query, $table, $subfield, $operator, $value) {
  if(!$subfield || $subfield == 'address') $subfield = 'data';
  if($operator != '%=') return parent::getMatchQuery($query, $table, $subfield, $operator, $value); 
  $ft = new DatabaseQuerySelectFulltext($query);
  $ft->match($table, $subfield, $operator, $value);
  return $query;
}
Let me know if that works out for you, and I'll add it to mine too. I'm also going to add a fulltext index to the 'data' field so that we can use other partial match operators.

Perfect - works for me :)

So is that function basically useful for any module that implements its own tables if you want such a field to be searchable?

Ah, except I have two issues that I suspect are more general Selector issues.

If I'm searching for the partial word "test" but the actual word is "testing" for example, it won't return a result. I thought it might be a length limitation, but I even tried "testin" without the G and it doesn't work no matter which selector I try. :(

The other issue is postcodes. I have a post code (zip code) in the map marker field that goes something like "LA22 X99". Typing in either LA22 or X99 returns nothing :( Is it possible they're too short? I seem to remember something about mySQL defaults limiting short word searches so this one might not be a bug :)

I think you hit here some full text mysql stopwords or number get filtered out and it's too short :)

I think Soma's right. The %= selector works for postcodes and part postcodes cos it doesn't use the fulltext index. It's a bit less versatile than a fulltext search and it is a bit slower but I have it searching about 7000 pages with no noticeable speed issues. (Even 'slow' mySQL is still fast.)

What I mean though is that %= doesn't work for me, so it's likely a length issue I need to change in my mySQL config like Soma said.

Hmmm, %= doesn't use fulltext indexes (indices?), so word length shouldn't matter.

Since it's using LIKE in this case (rather than fulltext) it won't matter. 

I just tested it out here on the skyscrapers profile. These queries worked for me:

$pages->find("map.address%=peachtree"); // returned all skyscrapers on peachtree road
$pages->find("map.address%=pea"); // returned the same thing
$pages->find("map.address%=191"); // Returned "191 peachtree road" skyscraper

Try grabbing the latest version of FieldtypeMapMarker. I updated it to have the new getMatchQuery method. I also modified it a bit so that it supports ^= and $=, and all the fulltext searching operators. Though the fulltext operators will only work on newly created fields, since existing installs won't have a fulltext index. But like DaveP said, you'd have to have a very large quantity of items before you'd see the speed difference.

Hi!

I just came across a strange problem and I hope you can help me. It's something that worked before, but suddenly stopped working. As far as I know I did not change the code in any way,

Ok, here we go:

I use an older version of this module and the module itself works perfectly fine. I use it together with Ryan's RCDMap class (for Google Maps) and the source code generated using the module is:

<script type='text/javascript'>
RCDMap.options.zoom = 4;
RCDMap.options.mapTypeId = google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID;
RCDMap.init('map', 60.128162,18.643501);

RCDMap.addMarker('Fotografiska Museet', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/fotografiska-museet/', 59.319450, 18.077618, 'FFFF00','A');
RCDMap.addMarker('Koninklijk paleis', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/koninklijk-paleis/', 59.326756, 18.071651, 'FFFF00','B');
RCDMap.addMarker('Skälby', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/skalby/', 56.682201, 16.336901, 'FF0000','C');
RCDMap.addMarker('Finspångs Slott', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/finsp-ngs-slott/', 58.709824, 15.770853, 'FF0000','D');
RCDMap.addMarker('Brudfjällsvägen', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/brudfjallsvagen/', 58.860771, 12.401965, 'FF0000','E');
RCDMap.fitToMarkers();</script>
 

So far no problems...

The RCDMap.addMarker function is:

	addMarker: function(title, url, lat, lng, poicolor, poi_id) {

		var latLng = new google.maps.LatLng(lat, lng);
		
		var marker = new StyledMarker({ 
			styleIcon:new StyledIcon(StyledIconTypes.MARKER,{color:poicolor,text:poi_id}),
			position: latLng, 
			map: RCDMap.map,
		});

		RCDMap.markers[RCDMap.numMarkers] = marker;
		RCDMap.numMarkers++;

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseover', function(e) { 
			RCDMap.currentUrl = url; 
			RCDMap.mapNote.html("<span>" + title + "</span>").show()
				.css('top', '0px')
				.css('left', '0px')
				.css('display', 'block')
				.css('width', 'auto')
				.css('color', '#ffffff')
				.css('background', '#000000')
				.css('padding', '2px 5px 2px 5px');

			$(document).mousemove(function(e) {
				$("#map_note").css({
					'top': e.pageY-10, 	
					'left': e.pageX+15
					});
			}); 

		});

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseout', function(e) {
			RCDMap.mapNote.hide();
			$(document).unbind("mousemove"); 
		}); 

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function(e) {
			window.location.href = RCDMap.currentUrl; 
		}); 
	},
 

The goal is that every marker has its own letter (poi_id) and color (poicolor). This used to work fine, but suddenly something happened and now is every marker getting the same letter and color as the last marker.

The titles, links etc. working fine and are unique for every marker. Any suggestions about what I am missing?

You can see the problem live at: http://www.zwedenweb.com/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/

Thanks in advance!

I'm not up-to-speed enough on Google Maps to be able to troubleshoot very well. But if it stopped working on its own without there being some change somewhere, then it's got to be related to a change at Google Maps? Still, you might want to put a console.log(poi_id) and console.log(poicolor) in there to monitor and isolate what's going on. It would be nice to know specifically where the info is getting lost.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
