Displaying Multiple articles on one map was created by softforge
Hi I was advised to use this plugin as the person advising understood the issue and thought this might help. I read the instructions and also thought it might help but think there is some confusion so wanted to set it out clearly to see if this is possible.
What I and several others who have posted on the joomla forums are looking for is a custom filed plugin which allows an article to add a location and if you go to that article then it can show the location, but also a way to show all the locations from the articles in one map.
So for example, if you had a series of offices each one an article and has a location, you can go to that article and see the location but also some way in a module perhaps to see all the locations on one map.
So if you change it in the article it is changed in both that article and the combined map.

Often you can use a plugin like this and get it to show one (or more) locations on the same article, but those article locations cannot come together on one map, you have to use a separate component and hand enter all the locations again to show all.
The double handling means they get out of sync.

Do you know of a solution we could use to show all the different article locations on one map?

Hello,

Yes we have a component: Geommuniy3 (lite or any version) that will show all the articles locations, but you still need to use that customfield plugin you bought to set location to an article.

Also our map component will be able to show many articles on one map, but as it is it would only list one location per article.
