Pattern manager and SobiPro
When you enter the pattern manager you will see that one default pattern for SobiPro is created automatically when you installed the plugin.
As we mentioned before you have two options available in geocoding entries with SobiPro.
a) If you have the Sobipro Geo-field installed you can select any configured Geo-field.
b) If you do not have the Sigsiu plugin, you can only select the -default- option.
In other words, one option is using the Sobipro geomap field to determine the coordinates. You can get one set of coordinates from Sobipro geocode field for each Sobipro section. The other is the default option where a Geocode Factory pattern and assign the SP fields to be used to geocode (to find the coordinates). You can create many patterns in this way, each one with it's own custom fields assigned from which to geocode and get the coordinate(read the main documentation section "Patterns"). In other words you have an unlimited number of custom fields to make available for determining addresses/locations.
See here how to configure the different fields:
- Latitude: Here you need to select one of the coordinates fields designed for latitude. Of course for advanced users, you can also use custom created field that contain a latitude.
- Longitude: Here you need to select one of the coordinates fields designed for latitude. Of course for advanced users, you can also use custom created field that contain a longitude.
- City: Select the field where you are storing the user's city. ususaly is the SobiPro_city field.
- Other address fields: Exactly like the city, select here any field that define the address.
Note: Like it is described in the main documentation, the more fields you set for the address, the more accurate marker position you will get.
Note: If you are using more advanced fields (non-textual), like a country-selector, and this field does not appear, you can go in theGeocode Factory settings and set the 'Use all fields' to YES.
