Hi guys,
hooping you can find this clear and useful. I think that with small tricks your Extension could be real quite perfect and give us the chance to use it.
Example - Let me say we are running a Portal where we have 4 Sections:

- Culture > managed by Joomla Articles (on some Joomla Categories) and Custom Fields
- Events + Locations > managed by DPCalendar - Do you have an integration for that ?
- Tourism (Properties + Experiences) > managed by Solidres - Do you have an integration for that ?
- Shopping > managed by HikaShop & HikaMarket multi vendor


1 - The 3rd party extensions integrations are managed through "plugins" like you done for HikaShop HikaMarket. These integrations permit to My Maps Location to read and show datas directly without the need to manually create Locations Am I right ?
The datas red and loaded are the ones used and needed by My Maps Location like: Title, Coordinates, Meta keywords, Meta description, the component Event / Property / Experience / Vendor / Product page URL (Use a Custom Link field), but:

1A - Should be good to load and show into the My Maps Popover preview also the "Price" field when present

1B - DPCalendar, Solidres, HikaShop use the default Joomla Tags system. Can My Maps read and load the 3d party entered Tags into the My Maps Search Tags ?


2 - Now, we'd lie to have an entire portal My Maps Search where to show all the Sections Locations, plus one specific Map Search on each Section. To manage it let me say that each Section should be a My Maps Category, but::

2A - We should be able to set and link the Component (and Sub Component) to a specific Category / Subcategory. Practically moving into Categories the field “Location Search and Display menu item > Select Component”. In this way the My Maps Category / Subcategory will be also the portal "Sections" because specific.
What I mean with "Sub Component" ? What you define with the "Default category ID > 3rd party extensions", but In Solidres for example we have Properties and/or Experiences (Tours) that are managed through two different Categories groups.

2B - We should be able to filter the Map Search menu/module by multiple Categories / Subcategories. This means to have a Categories multi selection as you done in your Dispaly Locations using a Module instead to have a "Select Category" dropdown menu.

2C - Also n the frontend would be really more user friendly to have Categories selection like the one you done for Tags.

If we are not missing anything, Please, Can you add the 2A / 2B / 2C features ?
