Knowledge Base - It's possible to create a store locator map ?
You can do this with our product Geocode Factory, where you can create the main map, and all markers represent or your stores. Each marker bleits own b containing any information (city, zip, description, images, streetview, waysearch form, ...) from the profile of the store.
As for the radius search function is also a basic function of Geocode Factory. On top of that you can bring up a sidelist (clickable), containing all the shops near the map.
Now we must address the central part of the site: storing profiles shops. For this you need to choice one another product, such as:
- Community Builder : free, can geocode the addresses of stores with a plugin (included in Gecode Factory), each store is a user of the site.
- Sobi2 : free, you can create files, the administrator or the shop creates a form, there is a plugin to geocode (geolocation plugin)
- Mosets Tree : non free, close to Sobi2, but Joomla 1.7 compatible
- JomSocial : non free, like Community Builder o, but more community-oriented
- Sobipro : free, you can create entries, the administrator or the shop creates reccord (if entries are created from frontend you will need a plugin from the Sigsiu club : geo field).
