My Maps location: K2 Integration

Since My Maps location 2.0 you’ve got a complete integration with K2 CCK. On My Maps location install, you’ll get:

  • A K2 plugin that activated a location area above in each K2 item
  • A K2 module to display: a set of locations, categories of locations + design options
  • A possibity to filter K2 item by tag in the search view

 

1. Item geolocation in K2

Each location you add in K2 item will be added automatically in My Maps location and then you’ll be able to load them as any other location. So you can load you K2 item with a menu, the search field or a specific module. First you need to locate your K2 item you want to search for.

 

k2-admin-locations

 

Then you can setup in your menu that you want to search and display items from K2 (not from My Maps Location or other extension)

 

K2-admin-setup

 

Then using the search engine, you'll be able to search for K2 item and each item link will naturally bring to the K2 item detailed page (instead of the My Maps location page).

Here's an example of a location search result that lead to the K2 item:

 

K2-location-search

 

What can I also get from K2?

My Maps Location can display K2 ratings in the search results.

 

K2-ratings

 

My Maps Location can use the K2 tags as filters in the search

 

K2-tag-filters

 

2. K2 module

A specific K2 module is available with My Maps location called “K2 – My Maps location”.

This module will helps you to display:

  • A category of K2 location
  • All the K2 item with location
  • A selected k2 item
  • Select Bing or Google maps
  • Select the view type of the locations (satellite, plan…)

Some K2 locations loaded in a module.
