Zh GoogleMap component for j!2.5, new features – placemark list and placemark details menu item

Hi there

I’ve done j2.5 downgrade for

Zh GoogleMap component for j!3, new features – placemark list and placemark details menu item

All works fine.

As for bootstrap loading – look at menu item – there is a parameter “Load Bootstrap”

For j.2.5 it is by default to load all. But if you template loads bootstrap, set it to no.

In a week I have plans to start creating video tutorials.
Keep in touch 🙂


Zh GoogleMap component for j!3, new features – placemark list and placemark details menu item


Today I finally decided to do new release for j!3 component
New features

1 – two new menu item types
1.1 – Placemark List
– you can build your placemark list, define, what columns will appear in filter, in grid.
– you can select your placemarks from different maps (don’t set definite map, set only groups, or categories and etc – as you do in map menu item)
– you can control load or not bootstrap CSS (I use bootstrap styles, and if your template doesn’t load bootstrap – the menu item parameter can support it)
– you can fix navigation bar (with filter, and limit control) on top of the page
1.2 – Placemark Details
– you can show placemark details information (title, description, thumbnail, image galery (built on infobubble block information), addition HTML description)
– you can control show or hide thumbnail, image galery
– you can control load or not bootstrap CSS
2 – I’ve added metadata to more fine show menu item titles

There are demo pages
Placemark Details http://joomla.zhuk.cc/index.php/zhgooglemap-demo-feature-placemarkdetails

Placemark List http://joomla.zhuk.cc/index.php/zhgooglemap-demo-feature-placemarklist

Some template “bug’s” can appear – in my template you can’t see now, but if you’ll get more than one page with placemarks (by limit for example), you’ll get pagination. My remplate remove classes from list item elements (li – tags), and for first page the buttons “start” and “prev” displayed incorrectly, and you need to fix it by adding your css style fixing into your template

PS today I didn’t find out how to meet two features together – placemark list and placemark details (there are errors about not existance subcontrollers), therefore the move from list to details will be done in future. May be I’ll add infowin button to go to details show from placemark from map

PPS for j2.5 I’ll add this feature a little bit later


Zh GoogleMap component, little bugfix


I’ve fixed little bug, – when you first time inslatt component and open component options – the option “Use Custom Map Types” by default set to yes, and it caused no maps in admin panel

I’m so sorry.


Zh GoogleMap component, added buffering for ajax placemarks, show all/hide all buttons in placemark group list and other features


I’ve added new features
– for placemarks, which loaded by ajax request now you can set buffer size to load its by series
– for placemark group list there are 2 buttons (Show All/Hide All), which you can enable in “Placemark Group” block in map details
– for infowin you can disable AutoPan when it displayed – in map details there is a field “Disable AutoPan”

And now I fixed a translation – some time ago if you haven’t translated sentenced – it displayed untranslated. But now I noticed, that it shows the tag, it is inconvenient, therefore now I manual fix this thing, and you can see untranslated text again.

Zh GoogleMap component, added support infographics for ajax placemarks


I’ve added support infographics support for placemarks, which loaded by jquery or mootools. (Firstly I didn’t plan to support it, because google’s depricate it)

And now js-libraries is loaded from local folders, not from google’s library

PS elevation for KML files is still not working (I use link to library which use to parse KML file, but now it doesn’t correct parse)

Zh GoogleMap component, ACL for frontend filter, new category list for admin and etc


I’ve added a few featured
1 – for frontend in map details you can set new value for Placemark Filter = use ACL, in this case placemarks is displayed by user ACL view access
2 – in component options there is a new option – Category list, it it used for admin panel – selecting category value
— Default – like as was, like in other extensions – hierarchy
— Simple list – simple list ordered by alphabet
3 – In Map menu item (component call) there is a new parameter – Placemark Filter, by it you can override map settings for Placemark Filter map settings

Best wishes

Zh GoogleMap component – new menu item parameter, ajax featues support and more code revision


I continue code revision, and move more common code into my js-files.

in this release
– now placemark group management by group list is supported for dynamic loaded placemarks
– added new parameter into component call (menu item) – “Placemark Filter” – now you can override default map settings

PS admin ACL for j!2.5 I’ll fix in next release
