    Hi Artbees..

    I am working on a real estate site for which I will be using JetEngine and the map listing extension.

    There is one feature I need help with..
    I created a CPT  called ‘Properties” and added necessary meta fields, but typing the address in the respective address field when editing a post does not provide accurate results for properties located in small villages (that don’t actually have a full address).
    So, I want to add the option to be able to manually position the location of a property on a map when adding a new property.

    How could I do this using Jupiter X capabilities..?

    Kind thanks

    Hello,

     

    Could you provide WP Dashboard credentials in the private reply and show screenshots for better understanding what you want to achieve?

    Much appreciated.

    Hi Tatyana..

    If you add a new property under Properties CPT you can see the added fields below the Post Title.
    This is where I want to add a map (instead of a text field) with the ability to manually add a pin to the exact location.

    As a second option, could I just enter GPS coordinates (comma separated) in a text field to do the trick ..?

    Hello,

     

    If I understood you right, you can use Maps Listing as described here:

    https://crocoblock.com/knowledge-base/articles/jetengine-maps-listing-overview/

    and add it in the template for the Properties CPT.

    You can create a single and archive templates in Elementor Templates menu. Select “Single” or “Archive” type when creating a template.

    Then you can set the templates in Customizer > Post Types > Properties.

    It would be better if you create your example and show how the post is shown now and what you want to achieve.

     

    Thank you.

    Regards.

    Hi Tatyana..

    I created an example to show you what I mean.

    Check this CPT post:
    https://home-is-crete.com/residential/lovely-house/

    I managed to show a property’s location on a map in the front end using Google’s ‘Plus Code’ in a meta field as the Address.

    My question is ..how to add an actual map with a draggable pin on the edit-page, so the user/editor can visually add the location – instead of entering the GPS coordinates or Plus Code to a field?

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I’m sorry, but there is no such feature.

    You can ask for this option at Crocoblock community https://www.facebook.com/groups/CrocoblockCommunity/ so they add such possibility in the JetEngine plugin.

     

    Thank you for understanding.

    Regards.

    Well ..thanks for looking into it.

    For the record ..there is a solution with ACF:
    https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/google-map/

    I have already posted in the FB community ..but that is not exactly a feature request.
