Frequently asked questions about Sobipro Radius Search application
This message is displayed by the browsers to preserve your privacy. Our extension cannot control this setting on client browser.
It come because you select to pre-fill the center point of radius with the user's position or because the user click the 'locate me' button. Both options can be disabled from backend of the extension, see the tutorial.
Then the extension try to fetch the user's browser position.
The browser never shares your location without your permission.

This include the browser location. And usualy (Chrome, Firefox, ...) you can control the behavior of your browser.
Unfortunately the appropriate google service is unavailable in your area, see this official googe spreadsheet : gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/mapcoverage_filtered.html
This is not possible because the different sobipro sections have each own custom fields, categories, templates... This is a pure Sobipro issue.
If you radius search need to use little distances, like 500 meters, and such, then, simply enter 0.5 in the backend distances list. You can mix both type of values.
The list : 0.25, 0.5,1,5,10, will return : 250m, 500m, 1km, 5km, 10km.
Yes, by using the Radius Search joomla plugin, where you can create the link.
This is because all browser don't allows you to share your position by default. You need to enable position setting of browser.
This is not an issue, you need to activate the application in the Sobipro application list, and for each section. This is a Sobipro normal behaviour.
See the Radius search tutorial.
The Radius Search Application for Sobipro is a Sobipro application (plugin), and could only be displayed into the search form (and in vcards for the distance...) of Sobipro.
But ... we have developed a module that allows you to display a search module on your site. The module is full customisable and you can display the search keyword field, the keywords match option (all, any, exact), the center point input, the distance from center list.
The search area display on the map is a map feature. Not related to the radius search application.
The Radius Search Application have the sales area feature, used in calculation of radius.
The Geocode Factory have the sales area feature.
If both are configured with the same sobipro field for sales area and if you set the markersets to draw the sales area circle then both are compatible. As I know sobipro club map don't have this feature.
There is 2 possible issues :
You forgot to include the application code into your Sobipro vCard template. Please refer to the Tutorial for this.
Only Miles, mi or Km appears, but no distance. This is due because you changed the displayed text in backend. By default the value is displayed like '15.5 km'.
But if you need a text like 'You are at 15.5 kilometers', you need to change the backend setting 'custom distance text' from empty to 'You are at %s kilometers'. A common issue is to forgot the '%s' (where is replaced by the distance value).
Imagine we have a list of companies that provide service. Each company can have a given geographic area that the company works in. Each company can define the maximum distance (radius) from its office (center point) that it covers.
