Markerset

The specific settings tab

The options on this tab are generated based on the currently selected pattern. In this tab you can select various different filters for the current markerset allowing you to further customize your data pool. You may also select some other options which are not filter-related.

Filter Generator: Here you can introduce SQL queries to filter out your results. The Geocode Factory query will be build with your optional filter. For instance, in the example above the condition is that the data in the field "k2_listme" has to be equal to "Yes". This way, the K2 entries which meet this condition will be used only. The idea in this case is to have a checkbox field (k2_listme) where the owners choose whether they want to have their entry displayed on the map "Yes", or not "No". Of course this field could be an administrative one instead, it's up to you and what you want to achieve.

Warning: The use of this feature is the most common source of errors that result in no markerset being displayed! Remember that here you are adding a clause/condition affecting the mysql database query. Each wrong or missing charter/quote will cause an error. Handle with care!

Categories to include: Here you can select the categories from which to choose the article markers to display on the map. You can enter many K2 categories.

Include child: Here you can select if you want to include items from child categories.

Entries to load: Choose the status of the items to display, ex: published.

Lines owners entries-events: Select if you wish to Draw Lines between the markers of the owners (authors) of the K2 items and their articles.

Enable Auto-Category: With the auto-category feature enabled, the markers that will be displayed will be items belonging to the categories you are currently browsing only (and child categories as well). This option is used to get a functionality typically seen in directories.
