Don't hesitate to subject your questions and needs via the forum to me.
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.
I try to always answer quickly and by yes.
When I finally did get it working. The Mouse just does not sit on the map, the map moves away on its own accord, very buggy and a real shame as its quite nice component and plugin.
I also do not like that I have to go and find a code in the config on the Component to remove the authors name on a link, when you could of very easily added a button to remove author link with a yes or no and a donate button attached to it.
May be this can be done in future additions.
Overall, it looks nice and works to a point, but if you want perfection then go elsewhere.
I'm very surprise !
I found no questions or comments of you on the forum!
In Joomla 1.6, it is a beta version.
If you post your problem on the forum, I resolved it and everyone can enjoy!
And I not understand your problem with "the authors name on a link".
After manually searching through the files that make up this extension I found the following inside
Chateauneuf sur loireFay aux loges Canal d Orléans';
This link is not a secret.
We talk in several post on the forum.
For delete it, edit the file :
and delete the line :
This link is not in the pro version !
If you need any customizing done, just contact Fabrice and work out a payment and he will do a WONDERFUL job for you! Very responsive and helpful.
PLEASE be sure to donate if you use this extension! This extension needs to be considered as Editor's Choice for maps. I can't say enough nice things about GMapFP and I have been working with this extension for months!
