      The Locations Map module just provides an interactive map of site content entries.
      If you'd like the Location field to be replaced with an OSM map then you need the Location Picker module.

        I do not need a location picker. What I asked is How is the Location Map as it going to work? 

        It's not displaying anything even after filling location fields and why is it calling for Google?

        • Gimi the procedure to make Location Map work with Openstreetmap without Google disturbance.

          How do I get it to display "interactive map of site content entries"?

          • The Locations Map is not intended to replace the "Location" field on forms. It doesn't affect it in any way. I.e. the Location field still works through Google even if the Locations Map is installed. The Locations Map just shows data entries which are having the location coordinates set either via a built in Location field driven by Google or via Location Picker module where a user can define data entry's location directly on a map. 

            So if the Locations Map is not showing anything on a map then this means that there is nothing to show, i.e. there are no any entries on your site with a Location defined.

            • Your description is not explicitly stated, it says it works with any module that has location.

              "So if the Locations Map is not showing anything on a map then this means that there is nothing to show, i.e. there are no any entries on your site with a Location defined*

              How do I define locations to make it work?

              • If the picker alone can work with Openstreetmap then it's ok to change this order.

                • Correct. "it says it works with any module that has location." - exactly, i.e. a data entry must have a location set already in order to appear on a map. And also it clearly states in its description

                  Also you may be interested ... in Location Picker module which allows to use Location field without having to use Google Maps.

                  To define locations you by default you need to configure Google API to make the Location fields work on a data post/edit forms. Alternatively you can use the Location Picker module which will replace the default Location field with an interactive map.

                  • It works with OSM but it will not give you a general map with all content listed. It is just for replacing the Location field on a data add/edit forms and that is it. It is supposed to work in addition to Locations Map, not as a replacement.

                    • You gave a description indicating Location Map Module with Openstreetmap is an alternative to using Google Maps and never indicated that this will not be possible without Location Picker. That's is my pain here. It's never a truthful information. I hate to be tricked into buying anything no matter how good it may be.

                      You needed to let prospects know all they will need to have your app do what it's expected to do. 

                      If location picker will work with Openstreetmap, then I want it changed for me however, if it's compulsory to buy Location Picker With Location Map, I'd rather cancel the order.

                      • We believe it clearly states what it does here:

                        This module adds an interactive map of locations for all kinds of content like profiles, events, videos, timeline posts, etc. Anything that supports location field.

                        Nowhere in its description it is stated that the module affects the Location field itself. In Addition to that at the very end of the description there is a note:

                        ...Location Picker module which allows to use Location field without having to use Google Maps.

                        for people who are willing to change the behaviour of a Location field on their sites. 

                        Anyway the Location Picker module will not give you a map of a site-wide data content entries like the Locations Map does. The Location Picker changes only the Location field itself, by replacing a Google driven textbox with an OSM map. If that is not what you're looking for then please confirm that you'd like to cancel the order.

                        • Your last paragraph should be quoted in full.....

                          *Also you may be interested in Nearby People module which shows a real time location of online members and in Location Picker module which allows to use Location field without having to use Google Maps.*

                          ...You may be interested.... 

                          It's not clearly stated.

                          Let me check products I may swap for this.

                          • Or can I see a sample of what I can get using Location Picker With Openstreetmap. Let me be sure of what it can give me please.

                            Because it's description also reads.....you may also be interested in Location Map meaning it's not compulsory.

                            • It is not compulsory. Location Picker simply replaces the Location field thus removing Google dependency. And doesn't require the Locations Map module to work.

                              Locations Map is also a fully standalone module which just shows data on a map, it can be used with both Google or Location Picker driven Location fields. 

                              The Location Picker's functionality is shown on these two screenshots:

                              • Fine. Let me have this please instead of Location Map.

                                • Ok, the order has been switched to Location Picker now. Please uninstall the Locations Map if you're not planning to use it anymore.

                                    I have uninstalled Location Map soon as I decided on Location Picker. Thanks

                                    • Hi AQB Soft , I have installed it, picked a location but it's not showing on my view page.

                                      image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=4352&dpx=1&t=1608752420

                                      To display as follows

                                      image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=4353&dpx=1&t=1608752444

                                      How do I get this fixed?

                                      • Hi,
                                        It is not supposed to show locaton as a string. Instead on a profile view page it provides a map.

                                        Like this one
                                        image_transcoder.php?o=bx_froala_image&h=4355&dpx=1&t=1608791817

                                        • We are saying the same thing. It's supposed to display the map but it's not. I am reporting so you can figure out why it's not and make it work.

                                          • Most likely the Map block is not active on your site. Go to [studio -> pages -> persons -> view profile] and activate the corresponding Location block (there are usually two of them - one for text and one for map)

                                              Well I have seen where the issue is. Person has 2 boxes for location while Organizations has one.

                                              However, I am not using the picker for Persons but only for Organizations and I discovered only box for Org has code with "entity_location" 

                                              I have changed it to "location_map" following the format in "Person Module" so it's now displaying.

                                              Last thing is that it cannot be zoomed enough to display towns. It's only showing big cities.

                                              How do I make it to show smaller towns?
