Developed for Joomla 2.5, 3.x
Use Zh GoogleMap Plugin to display map in article
Use Zh GoogleMap Module to use as module
You should keep in mind - the extension archive is more than 2M: The File Size Upload Limit (upload_max_filesize) on your Web Server might be set to low to allow larger files to be uploaded. By default PHP allows files up to 2 MB.
I have only scratched the surface with this feature rich component, but found even the basics very intuitive and useful. I look forward to using this again and again in future projects, however complex the requirements.
Thank you very much.
Quite possibly the largest feature set available and is constantly updated. Best of all, it is free!
Look no further, you have found the best mapping system for Joomla!!
I searched all over the web a componete with these characteristics. Finally I find it.
Many parameters to create maps
Supports multiple KML
Easy to install and use.
Help and support forum.
Congratulations. and can be improved!
I'm very appreciate for all, who contact to me, ask questions and etc. I hope my extensions is completely cover your tasks.
I haven't enough time to include more features (I'm busy at work, it is summer, I have to pay attention to my family)...
And I have more than 10 task to do:
- route to placemarks
- buttons for on/off panoramio, traffic layer
- include street view into infobubble
- add JQuery to get config for placemark from server dynamically
- add configuration for street view for each placemark
- add support street view panoramas
- add support management KML layers by menu
- and a lot of others
I have the plan, and try to do improvement when I can.
My friend, this just *ought* to be a paid component. I'm making a donation now and plan for more. Thanks much!
So many features and options, very well thought out.
Also, the support in the forums for minor things I've come across was excellent! Very fast and lots of information to help.
Anyone that uses this I really encourage to donate to keep great developers like this going!
From my point of view, Dmitry is for Joomla maps what Nicholas from Akeeba is to Backup extensions
Thank you very much.
In next week I'll publish Zh GoogleMap Module, it is module. And you finally could include in contact page a map :D
The extension is overall great, easy to set up and use. But the "find option" does not work for me. I am building a website on which I will make a map and place markers on it, and I want users to easily find those markers using the FIND option.
I made few test markers and tried the FIND option. I enter the name of the marker but it takes me on the different continent. I tried on different markers, but it does not work. Can You please help me resolve this issue, because the component is really great!
Thank You very much.
As you can read in documentation and fields labels, 'Find' option is find any place by geocoding. It is not find through (in) your placemarks. Today there is no option find placemark, you can only find address and center map into it.
But you can use placemarks list to show users your placemarks and position on it.
Additionaly, you can enable places library and autocomplete field, and when you type into Find field, the field will show addresses, which 'like' you enter. In this case you select more clear address for geocoding.
And I get only first result in geocoding.
I think I'll do in one time 2 features: search in placemarks, and list of results when you use Find option
PS in any case ask me in my forum ;) about capabilities, check Tutorials in documentation
Are you joking :) ?!
There are a lot of 1.5 extensions, and I've developed and mark my extensions that it started for 1.6. And you want to downgrade my development to 1.5, when 2.5 is active and 1.5 is will be in history in one time.
My only issue with the documentation was in figuring out the .klm files - I had to do a bit of outside research for that. I never could get the polyline feature in the paths to work, could be me.
I do find that the map is glitchy on the front end. I have it set with a default zoom level and the latitude and longitude, so I think that it should come in the same place every time that the page is refreshed. Instead it zooms in on random areas at different zoom levels, even with a page refresh. What is up with that? Could be very confusing for the end user.
Hi, I've replied you in site, and welcome in new forum :)
It can be when you set 'Open InfoWin' to each placemark. Then, when each placemark is created, the map try to do action, which you defined (change zoom, set center or other). You should set this field to 'No' value, and this action don't executed when map is loaded or refreshed :)
If you are not clear understand, please contact with me
Support is pretty much instant, bearing in mind that Dmitry operates out of a Russian timezone and he is clearly determined to keep the extension up to date and moving forward.
I have tested it on Joomla 1.7.3 without a problem and I understand that it also works on J2.5.
If you don't have a requirement for a SOBI or K2 type driven site, this is the way to go.
Give it a try - it's quick to install and quick to get to grips with.
I've check in K2 items, plugin works there :)
