Knowledge Base - Gateway for Form2Content
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 "f2c_special" has to be equal to "Yes". This way, the Form2Content entries which meet this condition will be used only. The idea in this case is to have a checkbox field (f2c_special) where the authors 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, ior it may be serving some other purpose as well. It all depends on 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!
Select image field: Here you can select the F2C field that will be used as the "Image" placeholder in the map templates.
Select sales area field: Here you can select the CB field that will be used to calculate the "Sales Area". It has to be a numeric value/field. See the Geocode Factory advanced features article to better understand this functionality
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 Form2Content categories.
Include child: Here you can select if you want to include articles from child categories.
Entries to load: Choose the status of the articles to display, ex: published.
Lines owners entries-events: Select if you wish to Draw Lines between the markers of the owners (authors) of the Form2Content articles and their articles.
Enable Auto-Category: With the auto-category feature enabled, the markers that will be displayed will be articles 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.
