The video only supports 1.5 and not 1.6 which really does not help and I find it bizarre that everything else works bar this one tiny aspect.
So u can add it manually
any way thank ur comment
click the minus button a few times to zoom-out and then you drag to your location (10-second job).
Although there are more complex and great moduls, perhaps because of the complexity all of them have something makes me crazy. I guess this is the first modul, what is makes what it has to. Worth for the 5 star.
If the text boxes width could be costumizable helps more in design, but great anyway.
Thanks ur comment and suggestion
surely will we add with next release
The best thing in this component is that it integrates several other componens which I tryed before and it simplifies my work in excelent way.
Thanks for ur comment
Suggest: If can be, please modify installing file so that others people don't get this error again
Thanks For ur comment ..........
Yes Release com_google_1_4 with ur suggestion ................
This is error
[20-Jul-2010 11:30:54] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagettfbbox() in /home/----/public_html/components/com_google/asset/captcha/captcha.php on line 93
your server not support for GD image ... so ple discuss with hosting provider
One question. Where do you save the placemarks? I need to edit the information i typed in the box when i clicked on the map. Also note, as seen in the video there is a Title and Description for the placemark. But I can only see the Title option, theres no Description.
One suggestion for future updates. Your component conveniently includes Map, Contact Form and Company Info. I would really love it if there is an option to change size, position and order of the all three segments dynamically from the frontend admin panel.
Good innovative work though.
Thanks for your comment
Yes currently this components does not store the place mark values. surly Those values store and display with next release.
Yes this is good suggestion.Hope to add to next release.
This can happen due to issue of GID support on your web server. Ple verify it.
Can u provide the web page link
And also it's better to contact us
Not this one! I found myself up and running very quickly!
I don't agree with the other user comment that you have to keep dragging from the default location. I think it's nice to see where you are based! The user obviously didn't realise that all you have to do is click the minus button a few times to zoom-out and then you drag to your location (10-second job).
The only feature I would ask for is a way to edit the message when the user clicks the "Send" button. In UK, we would use different grammar to "Thanks for you !"
Thank you - very nice component.
Thanks for your comment ...
Way to customize "Thanks for you !" http://joomlasrilanka.blogspot.com/2010/05/change-comgoogle-thanks-for-you.html
The extra star is my vote of confidence on future versions.
click the minus button a few times to zoom-out and then you drag to your location (10-second job)
It needs the option to turn fields off and on. And customize headings, like in the contact form.
It would also be nice to have the three components display in a neat row (contact details, map, contact us).
Do this and you'll have a brilliant extension.
thanks for ur suggestions
surly we will add these enhancement with next release
try from following way
1.components\com_google\controller.php - [front end com folder]
2.find "$msg = JText::_('GOOGLE_THANKS');" on there
3.comment above code
if not solve please contact us
- Would be nice to have the ability to hide fields that I don't want to use (my visitors really don't need to know my mobile number)
- Would be nice to add messenger contact info (Windows Live, Yahoo, AIM, Skype), with icons
- Have the map in a separate table so that I can make it full width without pushing the contact form out of view.
- Some kind of spam bot protection to keep the email address from being harvested.
Don't get me wrong - this is an exceptional extension just the way it is. I just happen to feel that these improvements would make it perfect.
Yer ur comment is very important to enhance the com_google ....
I will add request feature to next releases
It would be really be nice to have more options for Map View Height between 200ft and 2 miles. Perhaps 500ft, 1000ft, and 1mile.
Don't forget to set Map View height to something, or else you get no map at all.
Thanks for this really excellent Joomla Extension.
Thanks for ur review
