This component is a Google map, but is also an element for the presentation of tourist places, restaurants and others.
Don't hesitate to subject your questions and needs via the forum to me.
I recommend getting the search module as well as this is really does make the map functionality complete
As for the few questions I had with the developer they were answered quickly and some small adjustments made straight away for me
100% happy with this component
Good day every body! Using GMAPFP nearly year on Veliki - for showing bicycle rental points in Ukraine's map. Want to say thanks to Fabrice for his support and help even out of his project scope. Fabrice quickly responds, all the time trying to do his best in searching possible conflict with other components and improvements of quality and SEO. I'd recomend to use GMAPFP.
I had some problems, and the developer quickly came to my aid and fixed them. Of course, a completely problemfree installation would have been better, therefore four stars, not five. I also found the english version to be somewhat lacking, but it was quickly fixed in the language files.
I tried a few other map-components before this one - none of them met my demands. This one did.
If you intend to deliver professional services based on Google Maps in your Joomla website, this is the one you need.
I have reviewed all the others Joomla Component maps before to buy that one.
In my opinion, no one in terms of price/quality does better than GMAPFP.
There are several features I appreciate a lot as the possibility to let your users store their own maps and Point of Interest. And also a possibility to collect from your users suggestions of other POI based on a map zone you have selected.
In addition, the developer is very dedicated to support and very responsive. I can confirm you that you contact him directly and exchange with him when you have bought the Pro Module.
I also tested the "Free" Module which works very fine too. But I encourage users who want to develop Map services to buy the Pro Version.
And the compatibility with the new 2.5 version is very positive for the Long Term Support of the Component.
All work perfec both Joomla 1.7 and 2.5 without any problem, easy to set up, easy to understand and many more fungtion...
This is the best!!!.
Thanks alot for the develop.
Fabrice the owner has been extremely helpful when I needed something a bit different and the forum is also very helpful.
Fabrice is always quick to respond his responses always helpful.
I cant recommend this extension highly enough if you plan to have multiple locations on a map. I use both the free and the commercial Pro versions, well worth the money.
I'm testing the free version and having a great deal of difficulty getting the lightbox or popup functions to work reliably on Joomla 1.7.3.
I see in the forums where this has been experienced in the past and attributed to a lack of component.php in the template being used. I tried several and even inspected the code in the various templates I use, this does not appear to be the problem.
Have also posted a question on this in the forum, about a week ago now, still no answer from the developer.
I'd love to get this resolved to be certain that I may safely recommend this to the organizations I support.
Hello Mr bpreston,
In this lightbox, GMapFP uses the Joomla function : tmpl=component.
And for work fine, this fonction used the file component.php in the template. Some templates no implemented this file! But I don't know other solution for show the component ithout the modules, menus, header, footer,..
About your question on the forum, you have put a first post the 11/27/2011 and a up the 12/03/2011. The 12/04/2011, I responded it and I requested you if you have a link. Since, no other post!
The link of this post is :
With the Pro version, for a quick response, when I send the component, I tell that you can send me directly your requests by mail.
Easy to figure out how it works and easy to adjust at you own needs.
Also the developer is very helpfull if something is not working as was planned.
Even bugs that are found and mentioned are solved in a very short time with a update.
Keep up the good work!
Thank you for your feedback.
But in general I hope there was another way to include a map in an article another than to paste code. The best way would be if it was integrated in the Edit article layout in back-end admin.
In the Pro version for Joomla 1.5 of the component, le plugin has a grid to select the options.
And there isn't need to write code.
