Hello Leonid. In fact in my case, dating site, the location is really a crucial point, that's why I must absolutely make it mandatory and accurate because the research is essentially done on this point.
So I will say that the Google API has some negatives for me
- Lack of precision of the research, Belgium is a small country composed of 11 provinces, Google does not locate unfortunately by provinces, but by regions.
- Can not make field mandatory.
- Limited number of queries per day, often on my site dolphin the "ZIP Search" module stops working because I have exceeded the number of queries every day.
- Addiction to google for a crucial point ... I do not like it.
In addition, if for now my UNA site is currently in demonstration, I do not despair to migrate my site doplhin one day ...
So, explain to me how I'm going to migrate my 16,000 dolphin accounts -> Una with a (hypotetical?) Migration script if the fields are text type on one side and google API on the other.
So that's why, I wondered if it was not possible to include the traditional fields "Country", "City" zipcode "as they exist in Dolphin.
It's not hard to do for you, and, I repeat, with standard fields, it would also open up possibilities for future third-party modules.
Especially since you have already included the field "country" ... Do you understand my point of view better?
