Advanced Search Add-on, what for?
The GeoDirectory Advanced Search Add-on expands the default GeoDirectory search widget by adding a range of filters such as:
- Search Autocompleter
- Proximity Search
- Radius Search
- Filter by any custom field
The possibilities are limitless, and your users will love their Advanced Search experience.
The Advanced Search add-on enables Ajax Autocompleter function to both of GeoDirectory search fields: “Search For” and “Near”.
The “Search For” field will search for keywords in the listing title, text content, categories, and tags.
While the “Near” field will query locations and return results sorted by distance:
Hotels, near Chicago? No problem.
Since we use the Google GeoLocation service API to Geo-localize the user’s position, they must authorize the app to do so.
If the users share their location with the site, they can search using the “Near Me” option. This search will return results within a user-specified radius of the shared location, ordered by proximity.
When the near me option is used, the actual number of miles or kilometers will be visible below the listing.
