Introduction

The Event map menu item shows a map of events. Users are able to search events in a certain radius for a specific location. Regular content search is also provided and even searching within a specific timeframe. How to setup the map providers and more is documented in the maps Introduction article.

The basic options are empty by default, which means the global settings of component options will be used, but you can override them in the menu link configuration. The search criteria are saved in the session, which means, when the visitor comes back, then the settings are remembered. The current location button asks for permission to request the current location of the visitor and will then search events near her/him.

Beside the search criteria, there are a lot of options to control the behavior of the map. The options are described in the chapters below.

Map menu item

Radius search

If the user wants to search based on locations, then he can start typing a name in the location field. Instantly a search is performed which delivers a list of locations to choose from. These locations are fetched from the defined maps provider in the DPCalendar options. A radius can be set within the events should be. Then a circle is rendered on the map to visually indicate the search area.

Events list form location

Author filter

In the map menu item the admin can filter for an author, then only events of a given user are shown within the calendar. There is a special "My" option available which displays only events of the current logged in user.
