Map Marker Map

Recommended Posts

Thank you, Ryan.

Your tip regarding the console.log made clear that the vars weren't lost. They were still there.

After a lot of Google searches I found that the reason was a change in the Google Maps API (it worked in 3.9, but stopped working in 3.10).

I also found a bug report with a solution, so now everything is working again. :D

The bug report: https://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=4594

Looks like it's there 2 times.

AND you don't install modules in core /wire/modules/ but in /site/modules/ because when you update you replace wire folder.

Hi everyone,

I'm totally new to web developing and I've to say that processwire offers me a lot of fun.

thank you very much to Ryan and everyone who help making a such easy and complete framework.

however this map module is giving me a very hard time.

I install it very easily and it works perfectly on the admin side.

but I can't make the map appear in the front end.

Can anyone help me I'm totally lost on this issue.

here is the page I want to make the map appear

http://www.strati-varius.com/decors/face-cachee-de-l-uvre-d-art-tonio/

the map should appear at the end of the page, i can see in the source that all the code is here but nothing is rendered.

any help will be much appreciate

excuse me in advance for my poor english

Hello jetag!

The module is an admin side module. To display a map on the site you have to add some code. If you'd like to use Google maps this is a good place to start:

https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/tutorial#The_Hello_World_of_Google_Maps_v3

To use the values from the map module try something like this. 

center: new google.maps.LatLng(<?php echo $page->map->lat ?>, (<?php echo $page->map->lng ?>,),

Hi Mats,

thank you for your answer.

in my template I add 

include("./includes/map.php");

and here is my map.php 

<?
echo "<div id='map'></div>"; 

$js = "<script type='text/javascript'>";

$js .= "RCDMap.options.zoom = 15;";
$js .= "RCDMap.init('map', {$page->map->lat}, {$page->map->lng});";
$js .= "RCDMap.addMarker('{$page->title}', '{page->niveau}', {$page->map->lat}, {$page->map->lng});";

$js .= "</script>";

echo $js;

?>

I also add in my footer link to RCDMap.js and to the google API.

the source code seems to output well but there must be something wrong as no map appears.

yes #map is width: 350px; and height: 350px;

I've also tried it with a width of 100% but nothing seems to work  :'(

Thank you Apeisa,

I put the link for RCDMap.js and the google API in the head instead of the footer and now my map appears centered on the good point.

Don't get why but I'm quite happy

Still the marker doesn't appear

Though the code output in the source seems good, i got that

<div id='map'></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
     RCDMap.options.zoom = 15;
     RCDMap.init('map', 48.889828, 2.241181);
     RCDMap.addMarker('Gouffre de Villon', '1048', 48.889828, 2.241181);
</script>

That's right API key isn't necessary with v3. Can you attach the full code? I think there is probably something about the larger context that we're not seeing, and that's most likely where the problem is. But before you do that, enable your Javascript console and see if any error messages are being reported. I am guessing there is a JS error that will answer what the problem is.

Hi,

first I want to thank you all for your help.

I'm just a starting to learn php and javascript and processwire is an incredbly wonderful way to do it.

As Ryan recommended I look the javascript console.

it is returning me an error on the RCDMap.js on line 24 

Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined 

So I change the call of jquery from the footer to the header

and now the marker appears but the navigation tool on the map are still bugging.

there is no more error in the javascript console.

The RCDMap.js is Ryan's one, for the rest of the code I made a zip file with my template code and the map.php that calls the fonction for the map you can download it here. I don't know if you need other files if so let me know

Try to move the RCDMap script just before the closing head tag.

Hi Mats,

if you speak about 

 <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>js/RCDMap.js">
 </script>

it is already just before the closing head tag.

Or do you mean the complete code inside RCDMap.js ?

In that case wouldn't it will be to heavy to load for each page?

Hi Mats,

I assume you were talking about this script

    <script type='text/javascript'>
	    RCDMap.options.zoom = 15;
	    RCDMap.init('map', {$page->map->lat}, {$page->map->lng});
	    RCDMap.addMarker('{$page->title}', '{$page->niveau}', {$page->map->lat}, {$page->map->lng});
	  </script>

so I 've tried to move it in the header but it isn'resolving the problem./

thanks thought.

No, i meant this part:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>js/RCDMap.js"></script>

This should be just before the head tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>js/RCDMap.js"></script>

The other script should be in the body, where you would like the map to appear.

Here is a page with the scripts  if you'd like to have a look where the code is supposed to be: http://kalmarlansmuseum.se.preview.binero.se/rapporter/

Hi,

I'm using ProcessWire for the first time and I'm pretty impressed. Very cool CMS. :)

But now I ran into a problem and hope you guys can help me.

I'm creating a "Shop Locator" -> a page which includes a list of shops (including pagination) and a map of them (The shops are child pages including the MapMarker Field).

So far so good but now I'd like my users to be able to enter their Address and order the Shop-list according to their distance to the next Shop.

I already got the google api working so I've got access to the long/latitude values of the users address.

I tried to calculate the distance directly in the $pages->find() function but it doesn't work.

$results = $pages->find( "parent=/shop-locator/stores/ sort=((map_location.lng - 16.70088) * (map_location.lng - 16.70088) + (map_location.lat - 48.36351) * (map_location.lat - 48.36351))");
 

I also tried to create a new page array object and reorder the entries. It worked to order the list the right way but broke my pagination (displayed the entries of the first page on every page). Also this method had a lot of overhead.

Does anyone have an idea how to do that?

Thanks!

do that.in selector must you.not 

accept  only feld name does sort=

math haveu.given it

$lat_min=blahblahmath;

$lat_max=ur_fancy_maths_here;

$lng_max=some_science_here;

$lng_min=mom_taught_well;

$pages->find("parent=/shop-locator/stores/, map_location.lat>=$lat_min, map_location.lng>=$lng_min, map_location.lat<=$lat_max, map_location.lng<=$lng_max, sort=map_location.lat, sort=map_location.lng"); 

or.mabe querry db.direct u may enjoy ?

$r=$db->query("select pages_id from field_map_location where ...");

$ides=array();

while($row=$r->fetch_row()) $ides[] = $row[0]; 

$results=$pages->find("id=" . implode('|', $ides));

Thanks for your help.

I'm now using the direct database implementation and it works great with much leaner code than I had before.

$r=$db->query('SELECT pages_id, ('.$user_location->lng.'-lng)*('.$user_location->lng.'-lng) + ('.$user_location->lat.'-lat)*('.$user_location->lat.'-lat) AS "distance" FROM field_map_location ORDER BY distance');

$ides=array();
while($row=$r->fetch_row()) $ides[] = $row[0]; 

$query = 'id=' . implode('|', $ides); // Output: 1075|1070|1074

$locs = $pages->find($query);
foreach($locs as $result) {
    echo "{$result->id}|"; //Output: 1070|1074|1075
}

However, there is still one problem left.

If I look at the $query, the IDs are in the right order (based on their distance to the $user_location)
but as soon as I echo them out in the foreach loop they are ordered by ID.

I guess that the $pages->find function automatically orders the pages if no 'sort' variable is given.
Is there a way to sort them according to the query string?

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.
