i forgot to add the versions and cant edit my first post, sorry for that
Form2Content Search 6.5.0
F2C PRO 6.13.0.
We want to add content with coordinates and a user should be able to enter an address or coordinates into a searchfield and choose a radius (10km, 20km, ..) and get articles that are inside that range back.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the info. It's not possible to do a radius search. We do have the extension to create KML feeds from F2C data. The articles can than be "visualized" on Google Maps.

Do you know a script that can query a lat/long set based on location and radius input? Might be interesting to look into.

Regards,
Patrick
Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so ;)

Hello,
there is an sql query on
https://developers.google.com/maps/articles/phpsqlsearch_v3#findnearsql
that can do that.
If there are extra fields for lat/long it should be possible to get the results.
Maybe you can integrate it into your search plugin, it would be a great feature.

Tim

If you use Geocode Factory 5 (http://www.myjoom.com) (See JED) and the Form2Content plugin you can use the Geocode radius search for your content. It wont display results in a list however it will filter them on a map. If you need assistance setting up, Rick, the developer is very helpful.

Dave
