Full support for OpenStreetMaps in DJ-Classifieds component
The OpenStreetMap is a new equivalent for Google Maps. As you may know, Google recently updated its policy for using Google Maps.
This changes add limits for free usage and require users to attach their credit cards to the account, which is not accepted or cannot be processed by some organizations. Google Maps can also be limited in certain countries - so this is where OpenStreetMap steps in.
Thanks to the OpenStreetMap support you don’t have to worry about Google restrictions and do not have to provide the Credit Card information.
OpenStreetMap in DJ-Classifieds New Advert form
OpenStreetMaps in DJ-Classifieds Advert's detail page
OpenStreetMaps in DJ-Classifieds User profile view:
One of the new features you can use with the OSM is hints (suggestions) that appear in the search module when using the Address field and the submission form. Similar to what you may know from Google Maps features when the user starts typing in one of those fields - the suggestions pulled via OSM API are displayed and can be clicked to use as a search.
OSM provides the geolocation services and the "Use my location" button in the submission form of the advert or the location icon in the search module - the map (in the submission form) and location address in the address field in the search module is updated. It can be used to search by range.
Maps module parameter - "Fit items".
Another parameter in the maps module that works with the OSM - "Start address from geolocation" - when this is set the page where the map module is displayed will use geolocation to centre the map where the user is. This is a good solution if you want to show the items close to the user.
