(The Hosting News) – GEO Radius Search version 2.6 comes at the heels of March’s last version with major performance enhancements done all across the board. Version 2.6 comes equipped with 11 useful new features including a toggle between infinite scroll and pagination, drop down region codes, same location spider connector & pin offset, distance indicator from current location, default alphabetical sort for categories, map size parameters, updated documentation for site administrators, browser detection and compatibility detection scripts now enabled. Best of all, this extension will also be available in two new languages, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Needless to say, this advanced map navigation software continues to extend possibilities for site administrators to not just create interactive maps but offer a user experience where users can enjoy navigating comprehensive collections of listings that have location-related content with their websites. Leveraging GEO Navigation with your own proprietary data collections is more than just a smart choice but in high demand from user communities around the world.
To date, GEO Radius Search is the only GEO Radius Search Engine for ZOO and the first in the industry in terms of quickly providing appealing display results based on a number of search criteria options. GEO Radius Search is a core engine for listings application sites built with ZOO and the Joomla CMS. Enabled with versatility and flexible configuration options, this extension empowers users to quickly find information they need. By leveraging the unlimited potential of the ZOO CCK (or construction content kit), Zoolanders extended feature elements within a Joomla CMS, GEO Radius Search is able to deliver dynamic and interactive maps for web applications superior to any other solution available.
Introduced by CNP Integrations in 2013, the GEO Radius Search extension for Joomla! is the primary navigation tool for the Joomla Resources Directory (http://resources.joomla.org) and many other high profile web portals. Using GEO Radius Search improves a user experience with faster navigation of large scale categories along with extensive map radius search capabilities that let users accurately find resources within a designated distance with results filtering. Items can be viewed and details accessed from a customizable results list or pop ups directly on a map.
Chris Nielsen, General Manager/CEO of CNP Integrations, has stated that, “We are proud to unveil the latest 2.6 release of GEO Radius Search. In this release we have implemented many customer-driven features that improve usability, stability and flexibility of deployment. In addition to the many great new features we are reaching out to new communities by offering two new language translations for Portuguese and Spanish. For this version, we focused on performance, usability and efficiency. Our goal has been to make sure this is 100% stable, includes the most usable features and will offer a foundation for future enhancements.”
Having a prime quality of distinctive features, the highest standards for security combined with relatively easy administration for non-technical users, it is no wonder why its absolute usage figures for Joomla! have grown so significantly over the years. Joomla is a frontrunner in the CMS marketplace and one of the most innovative open source platforms in the world. Exciting momentum within the Joomla community is driving initiatives to gain an increased market share and become the platform of choice for business communications, socially interactive portals and commerce management purposes.
The use of GEO Radius Search and capabilities of this amazing platform are drivers for larger scale use cases. Notably, Joomla has stepped above merely being a premier CMS by also evolving a powerful application development framework. The Joomla framework is expected to change the way the internet will connect with physical devices and web applications are authored in the future. It does not take much to imagine the potential with robust GEO mapping, an innovative yet secure CMS, combined with the endless flexibility of the extensions available for Joomla and this powerful new application development “Joomla! Framework” to drive online opportunities for the future.
