Hi sebloders, Seblod 3.4.0 makes available "Geo Distance" on search and type.

I would like to use it because I have already address to coordinate and naturally map plugins. 

Is there anyone that have used it, please, I need more informations as follow:

I think I need a new field "Distance" in my search and type, then system should do all.

My questions: distance is a value in km or miles....?; this system is available for personal computer only or also for smartphone and tablet ? 

Thanks for your reply. Best regards, Louis

Hi Anjo, I saw video better and I have a question: premise that I haven't place app. With address to coordinate a map is possible find distance as for my need.  Regards, Louis

Hi Anjo, thank you very much for your help. You did a good job. Thanks again. I tried inserting fields latitude and longitude and address tocoordinates in a form content type. I saw that using "behavior> autocomlete" it doesn't work, while,if I use "behavior> concatenate", works fine.

I want to first solve this problem then I will check your suggestion better. I do not understand because in a way work and in another way do not work. Mistery. I will inform you soon. Best regards, Louis

Glad you have solve it and you are right Seblod is so huge and provides so many possibilities that writing a full manual would take forever.  I would have dropped Joomla for some projects if it wasn't for Seblod and although I get frustrated many times because I know Seblod can do things I want it to do but I just don't know how to code it, the introduction of paid support plus the continual development of free helpful features and the forums have been a godsend.

Hi Anjo,

Thank you for the nice example... But how did you 'cut off' the large amount of numbers in the distace with the php string plugin?

Hi Pathos,

You need to add typography "PHP string" to the distance field. Click + and in function select "number_format". in undefined* type "2" (no "" this cuts it down to two decimal points) then in suffix type Miles or Km. (example  5.645657945896043 Miles becomes 5.64 Miles).

Also for better control over radius choice in front end, I use plugin "Select Simple" instead of "Select Numeric".

In Select Simple options I put default value 1000 and create

Any Distance=1000

5

10

25

50

100

Storage=none

This way I can choose the distance numbers rather than showing increments

Hope this helps

Thanks Anjo,

it worked. Nice idea to use the select simple for the distance, but for now the numeric works fine for me.
