Google Location Autocomplete is an easy to use plugin that helps greatly with the location search on the Jobroller themes.
Search results can now be much more accurate as you can pin point the correct location you wish to search.
Many places through out the world have the same name. Using the normal search if you happen to be searching for one of these places it’s “pot luck” that the search result would be the place you actually want.
I found this to be annoying and so did my customers. So to help I looked into options and after consulting a few of my customers created this plugin.
So if you have come across this problem or if you just want to present a more modern looking location search option on your site. This is the plugin to get.
In admin there are a few settings.
Geocoding API Key.
Like the Job Location box on the Submit a Job form you need a Key.
Country ISO Code Setting
Enter the Country Code if you wish your results to target a certain country. Example. US for United States, GB for Great Britian and AU for Australia.
If your website covers more than one country then just leave the box empty.
