How the Address System Works
Easy Property Listings was developed for world wide use and different countries have different address labels and requirements.
Address settings can can be adjusted from the main Dashboard > Easy Property Listings > Settings >page in your WordPress installation. See the Address section for details on your configuration options.
Note: The City field is optional and is off by default. Additionally the Suburb, City, State, Post code labels and country display can be adjusted from settings, see the Address section in the Basic Config doc.
The address system in Easy Property Listings is designed for flexibility where you can selectively show or hide the full address from display on your listings. This also effects the map coordinates to future protect the exact address of your listing.
Always enter the full address details for your listings and check the Display Street Address option to display the exact street elements (Unit/Street Number/Street Name.
Display Street Address? - CHECKED
When this is checked then the full address will be displayed on your listings.
The exact coordinates will be displayed on your map with a pin icon.
Lat/Long Coordinate Auto-generation
Coordinates are automatically generated even if they are not generated in the dashboard.
When the listing is viewed for the first time on the front end and if the coordinates are empty, they will then be generated and saved to the listing. This reduces API requests on subsequent page loads.
Note: You can drag the pin to manually set the coordinates for some listings where the map is new or the listing is difficult for the Maps API to generate, these will not be overwritten.
Display Street Address? - NOT Checked
When this option is NOT checked, the Street level elements of the address will be excluded from display the and map will generate coordinates based on the Suburb only to truly protect the display of the listings address.
A circle will be displayed masking the exact location of the listing.
Even if the coordinates are set in the dashboard they will not be used. The coordinates used are at the Suburb level only and are not saved to the listing on page load to truly protect the true address of the listing.
Commercial, Commercial Land and Business listing types
These listing types have an additional option to display the suburb level element. When this is not checked then the Suburb will be excluded from display.
Display Suburb - CHECKED
This option only takes effect IF the Display Street Address option is NOT checked. When that is checked the Display Suburb option is ignored.
