[DJ-Classifieds] Location module
When choose location members should see ads only from chosen location. And when they choose different categories or search something they should stay in their location, while members won't reset location or will choose another location. Now when members choose location they see all ads from this location and when they choose another category or go to the main page they see ads from all locations.
I can see that this feature is most awaited one. We’re working on this feature. It takes time as we need to make it compatible with all previous versions so you have no issues with upgrading. Due to this fact we plan to release it in version 3.7.
We’re currently closing version 3.6 which should be released in early January 2017 and then we’ll be finishing this (remembering the location) feature to be ready in version 3.7. Thank you for your patience and support!
@trisha can you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I would be interested in this work around of yours....thank you.
@trisha please do it to email@example.com , thanks!
i solved this problem,
if you want i can send that to you
Location module will be released in 3.7 version. Next should be: search alerts, however, I'm not able to tell exact versions or dates. I'll update it once we release Stable version 3.6 and will be closing the 3.7 roadmaps.
When will this version with all these features be release?
This is probably the most awaited feature. You know something about the planned date of deployment?
location should be mentioned in urls and in title as well
@Oskar - yes, this is how it'll work when we'll add this feature. It's almost certain that this feature will be introduced in version 3.5. Thanks
Two years ago I writing about it with Łukasz C.
I wrote about the inconvenience in locating system in dj-classifieds. (You may want to review these messages?)
I admit that I thought that after two years it has been brought to a suitable point for all ...
In my opinion, locations should be something like expanded category (should have all the possibilities of category system)
I think it is really needed for dj-classifieds to track the location appeared in the url, and in such a way as you want it.
or http://example.com/location (for all categories)
or http: ///example.com/category/location/sublocation
SEO is important, so let us to act with it.
Creating a menu, you can create a link to the category but not to the location? Why?
You may also want to consider api google maps to work with it?
Hello, Yes, you're right, we'll take your suggestions seriously when adding this feature to DJ-Classifieds.Unfortunately it's not easy to be implemented (taking into account backward compatibility and compatibility) however when we'll be working on the feature your suggestions will be seriously used. Thanks!

This would be ok, but the issue is that none of this will help with SEO. You will still have a template names and confusing irrelevant "ID's", neither will aid in getting pages indexed by major search engines. I am having my coder customize the regions component to give it authority over categories, do when a search is done, or a custom tree map is created the path will be something like www.website.com/united-states/florida/keywest/etc. No template names, no ID's no junk path data. Google in their most resent release made it clear that only static paths will be indexed. When the spiders see a mess like address=18-blah=90etc-etc it will simply ignore the path and not include it for indexing thus lowering the number of indexed pages of the website, thus lowering SEO.
this is a very important fact of a classified ads extension these days , i think this important fact should be there originally, while you'll developing this extension, why i am telling this is , if running a classified web you'll will realize people use to search on based on location on search engines, if you gone thru with google webmaster tools you'll can confirm it, if not you'll can use google keyword planner to get an idea, how people use to search on google to get their requirement done from a classified ads website,
just for a example people use to search like this, "used cars in New York " you'll can see in google in first two or three pages all the websites are included that particular keyword on their titles and in their urls , if you click one of those all the list of all used cars appears belongs to new york city, google prioritise that clean title and url belongs to that city, that's page by page optimisations these days google strongly sees that, that's a actually a fact too, coz new your guy doesn't want to inspect any car in not his region.
why i am telling this is classified owners need visitors, doing good SEO work and with so much of competition if losing visitors (( not getting optimised in google comparing to competitors )) it's really disappointing, that's why i am telling this is very important aspect of a classified component,
i have inquired about this 5 months ago still not available, this is a such a simple thing for you ll and i don't know why you'll dragging this out,end of the day you'll also get benefit out of this if you'll can fine tune these things on regards of SEO
can i know when you'll going to release next update ? can you'll customize this extension for my requirement if i am buying this extension ?
ouu it has not yet been implemented? :(
when can we expect to release 3.5 version?
the user should be able to see on general map the adds for specific category or all categories depend on the selections. I think it will be useful on the general map to be able to select multiple category .For example I have a category Restaurants and another Hotels. The user should be able to select only Restaurants, or Hotels, or Hotel+Restaurants.
@dmachado48 - We plan to release it with 3.5 version of DJ-Classifieds
Здравствуйте. Как можно организовать то что бы при нажатии подачи объявления или еще какой ссылке человек продолжал был привязан к городу, то есть я выбрал город например москва, но зайдя например в личный кабинет или в подачу обьявления, мне опять нужно выбирать город. Если посмотреть сайт авито или барахла нет, там если выбрал город, то тебя из него не куда не выкидывает, и личный кабинет привязан к городу и подача объявления, то есть пока сам не выйдешь на выбор городов.
Hello. When this update will be available?
Map need to be follow to search result (zoom , long, lat). Now map stay only first position ( module options).
totally agree ..as this is extremely important to keep the system remember selected location while browsing in all pages/categories until user decides to change it !
guys, maybe it can be resolved with cascade custom fields? For example you would be use a custom feild as location fields and this way members should stay in their location, while members won't reset location or will choose another location
