Resource Directory - zip code search not working

Postby sboedie » Wed Dec 14, 2011 8:56 pm

I tried finding Joomla resources near me and the zip/postal code search from the main Resources directory and the Advanced Search are not working correctly - it found no resources. I checked it by searching my company listing and it did not come up in the zip/postal code search for my zip code.

Also, can you add a search limit in miles to the either spot?
Great introductory videos for Joomla: http://www.buildajoomlawebsite.com/ and http://www.myjoomlacast.com/ - a great place to start before posting a question in the forum.

We have tested the radius search on multiple entries and it's worked each time. What typically happens when a listing isn't displayed is that it has not been geocoded. This is a mostly automatic process, however, there are quite a few listings that didn't provide actual addresses/postal codes, so it didn't geocode them.

Check to ensure that your listing is filled out completely with real address information.
