Knowledge Base - Gateway for Joomla Content
The specific settings tab
The options on this tab are generated based on the currently selected pattern. In this tab you can generate the fields based on your choice of filter for the current markerset.
Filter Generator: Here you can introduce SQL queries to filter out your results. For ex:
- The Geocode Factory query will be build with your optional filter, like this sample (your filter in bold) :
SELECT values FROM articles_table WHERE internal_conditions AND (your_query)
- You can also use multiple conditions like :
SELECT values FROM article_table WHERE internal_conditions AND ((your_query_A) AND/OR (your_query_B))
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 joomla categories.
Draw Lines: Select if you wish to Draw Lines between the markers.
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.
