An Example Geolocation Custom Input

  1. Custom post type sender form with geolocation info (custom tax and post meta):
    http://gapvitrin.com/ilanver/satilik/
    ( Its Turkish language but you can use translate in top right corner if u want )

    First Input is a custom input. First you selecting city from drop-down list and region section is coming via ajax query. Both city and region lists are 1 custom taxonomy and region lists are child of city that selected. Then you writing a value to Avenue / Street section.. Street name for example. When you click load button, system querying google maps with city + region + street name you entered and loading on map below.

    When saving: city + region values saving as custom taxonomy and location coordinates saving as post meta data.

    Example post created from that form:
    http://gapvitrin.com/satilik/ornek-satilik-konut-ilani/
    (You can mouser hover on map icon, probably that example will delete soon)

    I believe this is a good usage for real estate websites that using custom post type and want to get property info from forms.

    Man, that is well done. I can think of more than a few uses for this. I found your post cause I was looking for a Google Maps plugin for GF that allows users to select their location on a map and submit it with the form.
