Sobipro Radius Search Application Plugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
This Radius Search Application is a native SobiPro Application (plugin) and fully integrated with and installed within SobiPro.

The Radius Search allows you to add a field into the native SobiPro search form to be able to add both centerpoint and radius distance criteria to the SobiPro search function. It works in conjunction with and is entirely integrated with that form. You can search just by radius distance or with any combination of native SobiPro search criteria.

The MyJoom Radius Search Application allows you to add a field into the native SobiPro search function. This field allows the user to enter any type of address (street and/or city and/or ZIP and/or any data that can be located in Google maps). Once the user start to type a place name, the fields try to complete the user’s query (exactly like the maps.google.com search input box). The user could also use an optional ‘Locate me’ button to geocode their position (useful for mobile users like iPhone, iPad, Android and newer browsers).

There are two parts of this search entry:

1) Starting point as described above.
2) Desired search radius which is configurable in the administration panel.

After the center point is entered, the user selects a radius. The radius select box can be customized in the administrative panel with your own comma-separated list of distances in the units you define (kilometer, miles, nautical miles). In metric unit, it's possible to display the values in meters.

There is also an option to display the distance from center point on each vcard in the search result listing and the vcard entries can optionally sorted by distance.

Work also with sales area radius : you define for each entry a radius (sales area), and the radius search find the entries even is their center point is not into the search radius. Sample, I search in a radius of 20km, and the center of the entry is outside this radius (at 22km), but if this entry have a sales area radius of 5km, then it will appear in results.

In order to work, Sobipro Radius Search app need to have geocoded entries (entries with latitude and longitude). For this you can use SP club geo field, or Geocode Factory or other...

We needed to add search based on the user location to our project, and in a hurry we decided to use this plugin.
It proved to be a very good decision, it does exactly what it promises and it's extremely easy to set up. A great addition to SobiPro.

Instead of writing a long review, I'll just sum it up in one sentence.

This extension does everything you need, it's easy to install, easy to set up and the support is exceptionally good.

It's a required purchase for anyone!

The geomap in combination with the radius plugin for Sobi Pro works awesome!

In no-time i was able to setup a great directory, with all the categories and items displayed on google maps! My visitors are very happy with this extra functionality on the website.

I had some problems implenting stuff (my fault) but Myjoom helped me out with this on in 1 day!

Integrating Sobipro with geolocation has been the key to my site. I removed a lot of work off.

In my site I can find a set of businesses around a certain location. And this is exactly what I wanted.

I highly recommend it!

Great plugin, it fits exactly my needs. I used it to an extended business directory which runs on mobile phones and worked like a charm.
The support is also excellent, as the developer answered all my questions clearly

One of the less out there that is a 100% integrated sobipro component. Good build and no need of extra plugins which makes it easy to use!

Good work and fast support!

This extension provides so much flexibility to the search. Very powerful!

I did experience one bug (actually a bug in SobiPro that manifested itself in this extension). The technical support I got was nothing short of amazing; an update to this module was made available quickly!

As an added note, the code quality in this module is really, really good. I would recommend it to anyone.

I have been using this extension since it was released. It is terrific! It allows me to have ONE search page for ALL my SOBI needs that filters both SOBI data and a given radius. It is exactly what I needed!

Excelent idea, excelent "search and display on the map" tool!

This is the best solution when you need to combine native SobiPro search function with Google Map and Radius Search Feature.

In my case, the website visitors use the Google Address as Radius center point (usualy only ZIP code), select one Sobi Field as second search criteria and the application will show the results on the Google map, only where they are located in this permieter delimited from center point to a specify radius distance.

Amaizing! Thanx!
