Joomla! version : 3.91
PHP version : 7.2
AdsManager version : 3.2


Do you have documentation or video that explores the best method(s) to offer a "Geo Targeted Classified Search" using your adsManager component. What is the most user friendly way to offer a BY STATE search on specific items in the classified site. My site has thousands of categories of items, so building individual "State" pages for each category wouldn't work. I need to have the selection of a "Specific State" to be part of the initial search query.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

That's not an easy question and since it is not a feature of AdsManager, I cannot help you. Sorry.

However, once the compatibility with Joomla 4 is done we will begin to work on the geolocalisation for the ads.

Best regards.

This is a VERY important feature missing. If a user lives in Florida and wants to search for only Florida items sold by Florida vendors like you see on Craigslist, they should be able to query that classified items ONLY from Florida vendors.

(Example:) If a user is wanting to search for and purchase a certain horse breed from Florida breeders only, they don't want to see every horse for sale in the U.S. They just want to see breeders in their state of Florida. This is a VERY IMPORTANT query function to be missing from your component. Not good.

We are aware of that, and the developpment of this feature is already planned.
However we need time to make it.

Best regards.
