mod_flexigooglemap - use addresses from existing fields

3 months 2 weeks ago #76723 by horsey
Hi there, long time no see.
I just played around with the mod_flexigooglemap and would like to create a map based on 2 already existing text fields. One holds the street address, the other the zip code and the city. Is there any way to concatenate them into a map field? If not, that would be a nice feature. You already seem to have the reverse case, though. Cheers.

hello
1 create a address field
2 link part field (address field) to your field
3 in your googlemap use the address field

Hi, thanks, how would I link the fields? In prefix, suffix, like {{fieldname1##0}},{{fieldname2##0}}?
I tried that, but it doesn't produce the values in the address field.

I even get "Oops! Something went wrong." if I enter an address manually in the field.

Stupid question: Do i need a payed plan with Google to use this at all?

in address field in last tab config "Properties as Fields"
=> Store properties as fields
you can "map" a basic field inside an address field

Thanks, but it won't work and I'm giving up for now. Its rather confusing, from the description in the interface it says, that properties created in the address field could be stored in other FC fields, not the other way around. I also couldn't pick a textarea field, only one liner text fields. I got my street addresses in a textarea.

For an unformatted entry, to search for a map location, the street with number, then a comma, and then zip and city should be sufficient.
Anyway, the only output I get in the address field is "Oops! Something went wrong". Never mind ...

E.T.A.

Ha, I tried it on one address and it overwrote the field I picked, so its not working the way you suggested, rather the other way round, sorry to say!

I tried this again, but all I ever get is "Oops! Something went wrong."
Do I need a paid Google subscription for the API to work?

This is definitely the wrong answer, the function does the exact opposite of what you suggested.
It stores the map data in FC fields.

I'd like to use existing field data to create a map.

No, again, the function stores values, doesn't retrieve them.
If I use an existing field it would overwrite it, I tried it.

Is it very complicated? I just want to use already existing address data to create a map, if possible.
If its not possible yet, I'd suggest to add that feature.

Anyway, I don't get any map yet from Google.
Do I need a payed subscription?
The map service isn't shown for selection at the Google API preference page.

I'll try OpenStreetMap then ...
