    Hi Chris,

    Is it possible to import a list of POI’s into a map, with the icon, title, and html content (e.g. image and text)?

    If so, is it then possible to update the POI’s by importing over the top of a map’s POIs?

    I’m thinking maybe this might involve using both your CSV Import and Mappress plugins?

    Thanks
    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    Yes it’s possible. You’ll need to create one post per location (you can combine the posts into a single map with a mashup). Then you can import the posts or overwrite them with TurboCSV or a similar importer.

    You can configure custom fields in MapPress for the title, iconid, and content. For the image I’d suggest just using the post featured image.

    Hi Chris,

    Quick question … would this shortcode work to display posts of category AND tag?

    [mashup query=”post_type=product&product_category_name=caringorms&product_tag=luxury” width=”100%” height=”350″ adaptive=”true”]

    So to show all posts with cat=cairngorms AND tag=luxury

    Thanks

    Hi again,

    Just had another thing pop up, related to filtering on CAT AND TAG

    On this page (on our staging site)

    http://nptravel(dot)staging(dot)wpengine(dot)com/product-category/lake-district/

    If you replace the (dot) with . to make the link work.

    If you click on the collection (tags) to filter the search you will see the map stays the same as it’s a fixed piece of shortcode used. The ideal would be to get the map to refesh with the selection.

    I have no idea how to even begin approaching this … but just in case you knew of a way?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    That should work. WordPress doesn’t document the query string very well in their codex but it does work.

    You should able to do things like:

    query="mytax1=a"
    query="mytax1=a+b"   (a and b)
    query="mytax1=a,b"   (a or b)
    query="mytax1=a&mytax2=b"   (mytax1 = a and mytax2 = b)

    Remember to use slugs for the taxonomy name and term values.

    Cool .. this has done the trick:

    [mashup query=”product_cat=lake-district&product_tag=luxury” width=”100%” height=”350″ adaptive=”true”]

    Thanks

    Please can I ask just one more thing .. then I will leave you alone!
