[solved] Location not accurate was created by Joel3012
Hi,
I was hoping that the profile location could be used from the Jomsocial address fields but it doesn't seem to be accurate. Is this because I am in UK with postcode not zip code - there doesn't seem to be a zip/post code field in the default setup of Jomsocial.
Is there anything I can do to improve the accuracy?
Thanks
Joel.

Well Jomsocial geocoding is quite limited and many customers complain abount it.

This is why we released this plugin:
www.nordmograph.com/extensions/index.php...gory_id=7&Itemid=119

It is using Google and Yahoo API to provide the best results.

What fields do you use ?

Hi,
Your asking what fields made me check and realise that I had renamed the address field to something different. I have changed back to original FIELD_ADDRESS and so far so good. It is working.
