Introduction

Directory, Maps & Locations

Shack Locations is the best way to create a location-based directory in Joomla.


With Shack Locations you can create advanced directories with custom maps, markers, infoboxes and hundreds of locations. You can add details to your locations using custom fields. And, you can give your users the ability to search and filter through the locations.

Multiple locations in a single map

With Shack Locations, you can display a map with as many markers as you need. You can use location types to categorize and customer your map markers.

Automatically create a list of locations

In addition to displaying a map, Shack Locations can also create a list of your locations. Shack Locations provides a "List" tab where you can show customized details for your locations.

Filter your locations on your map

Visitors to your site can use filters to quickly sort your locations. Shack Locations shows checkboxes under your map. Visitors check these options to choose the location types they want to see.

Create maps the easy way

Creating maps has never been easier. If you search for an address, Shack Locations will automatically find the latitude and longitude values for you.

Add custom tabs

Shack Locations enables you to create tabbed information areas. You can use these to show extra information for all your locations.

Excellent SEO support

Shack Locations allows you to add metadata for each location, and also provideds clean, Search-Engine Friendly URLs. This helps Google to find and index your site's locations.

Functionality
Pleins de fonctionalités dans la version pro

None, although if you are trying to build a complex map you should have basic component experience. There is a YouTube video for a basic map
