Hello! I have some pre sales questions about my maps location extension:

1- If you select open streetmap as map provider, does the extension have the same functionalities that with google maps with the search filters and everything?
2- Can this view https://www.demo-joomunited.com/my-maps-location/search-full-width-theme be configured to just have the map and a simple filter that filters country, state and city and use the tags as i show in this attachment map-example.jpg without the other search options and without the search results showing outside the map, i had just modified the screenshot in paint for you to se the example.
3- When you add a location, does it have to direct the link on front end pop up to the location detail? or can i show in the location pop up in front end some custom html information configured in backend of the location instead of that?
4- Can i select custom pin colors for every location category?
5- Can the "tags" that are shown in the filter (bike, reseller, restaurant shop in yoir demo) be displayed in custom colors each one?
6- The same that quesion number 2 but with this layout https://www.demo-joomunited.com/my-maps-location/search-sidebar-theme
7- In this layout https://www.demo-joomunited.com/my-maps-location/search-sidebar-theme can the seach filter be collapsed by default so the user opens it if needed?
8- If in the search form in cities you have for example more than 5 or 10 results does it have a sort of pagination or city search or does it just shows a huge list?
9- Can the map be used in a article with a shortlink?

Regards!

It needs to be customized, our dev will help you with that.

3- When you add a location, does it have to direct the link on front end pop up to the location detail? or can i show in the location pop up in front end some custom html information configured in backend of the location instead of that?

You can do by customizing css.

This also needs to be customized.

Yes, we have pagination for the searching result.

Thanks for the answers!

For number 3 i mean that when you click on a pin in your demo it goes to the location detail, can it be configured to go to a custom url and not the location detail?

For number 5 and 7, is this supported by your support team?

For number 8 i don't mean the search results, i mean that when you filter the map you have the option of country, state and city, what happens if i have for example 30 city options in the filter? Do i get a huge drop down list or does it have some kind of pagination or internal dropdown search?

I had seen you demo in smartphone now and the layouts for the search and filters are not the same that when seen on a desktop, its like that or is only something on your demo?

Looking forward to your comments

Regards!

Yes this is possible.for this you need to put default location and then hide the searchbox using css.
3- When you add a location, does it have to direct the link on front end pop up to the location detail? or can i show in the location pop up in front end some custom html information configured in backend of the location instead of that?
it has direct link to location details.if you want to show extra information we have address format in my map location backend so you can create extra fields and show that information in my map locations.
4- Can i select custom pin colors for every location category?
Yes that can be done.in such case you need to click use icon form category from my map location end.
5- Can the "tags" that are shown in the filter (bike, reseller, restaurant shop in yoir demo) be displayed in custom colors each one?
This can be done using css.
.tag-search label

7- In this layout https://www.demo-joomunited.com/my-maps-location/search-sidebar-theme can the seach filter be collapsed by default so the user opens it if needed?
that can be done using javascript customization.
8- If in the search form in cities you have for example more than 5 or 10 results does it have a sort of pagination or city search or does it just shows a huge list?
pagination is always available in our extension.
