A Complete Listing Solution for Google Maps on WordPress sites lets you quickly display locations in a paged, sortable, searchable, and complete list. You can customize content selecting categories, radius, and location and apply interactive settings on the map. The filter parameters are displayed on the frontend of the site.
How it works
To use the full range of functions read the following guide on how to create a listing of objects using Google Maps.
- First, decide where you want to search for locations. If it’s a certain city, country or state, insert its name in the field ‘Search Locations’ below the map. There is also an option to find a particular establishment by its title, address, coordinates or a postal code. If no data is entered in this field, all objects will be displayed on the map and in the list below it.
- After defining the place, select the category you need, how to sort the places, how many of them to show on one page and in what radius they should be from the search location.
- Scroll down to see the listing of objects that correspond to the set criteria.
- Choose the way of displaying the results: a list or a grid.
- Press the button with a printer icon to export them to a file for a paper version, if needed.
To make this process more clear, let’s consider the case. We need to find museums in New York not farther than 20 miles from the center. To do it we select these parameters in the fields ‘Select Category’, ‘ Search Locations’ and ‘Select Radius’ respectively. The results of filtering will be displayed on the Google Map.
These were the steps to pick and separate museums in New York from other establishments. Now we’ll adjust the listing. Let’s imagine that in this case it will be more convenient to sort the objects in alphabetical order and show 25 locations per page. In the field ‘Sort by’ we select A-Z Title and in the field ‘Show Locations’ – 25. This is what we get:
Information about the objects is displayed in a list format by default. The icon of this style is placed in the lower right corner of the field below the map (it is circled in the screenshot). But the grid would be more human-friendly, so, let’s change the view. To do it we just click on the grid icon. This is how it looks now:
