2. HOW TO CREATE PLACES

chronosly-tips-logo There are two ways to create places:

 

2.1 In Events > Add new event

when you are adding a new event or within Events> Event when editing an event already created.

By default, if you have not changed the display options, find Places on the right sidebar.

Unlike point 1, you can add a description, other useful information (Adress, City, Country, State, Postal Code, Latitude & Longitude (Geoposition), Phone, Mail and Website) and change the slug.

 

3. HOW TO SET LATITUDE & LONGITUDE

chronosly-tips-logo

 Latitude & Longitude drag and drop: To set a place in Chronosly calendar, fill in the address information and a map maker will appear at the right location.


-If the map marker doesn’t show the right location we suggest to add all address info including the post code.


-If the map marker is shown in the right street but further to the right, drag and drop the marker to the correct place. You will see that Lat. & Long. are filled in automaticaly and the map will be set up.

Important: If Lat. & Long. has been filled in remember to erase it before changing the address.

Name / Title is mandatory whenever you create a new place. Leave the optional fields in blank and will not appear.

Places Notes:

-When you're creating a new place (even if you edit (Edit) a posteriori, once created and place) You can enable or disable featured place:

-Fatured place: give more prominence to a specific venue. Featuring venues means making a single or various places look different from regular ones. Venues you feature are more likely to attract the attention of calendar visitors. Learn how to add featured elements.

Important: Before fill all optional fields of a places or set featured places, make sure your choosen template is set to display this information.

 

4. GOOGLE MAPS SCRIPT PROBLEMS

For our experience with many clients and websites, Google maps script included in Chronosly might cause some troubles. Most of the time, those misfunctions come from gmaps script duplication. That means other plugin/s installed in a site already has a gmaps script included.

Google maps only allow loading its script once within same site, so maps would not display or just generate errors.

To solve it, Chronosly include an option to enable/disable gmaps script.

You would find enable/disable gmaps script option within:

Chronosly > Settings > Incompatibilities
