The OS Property developer team are proud to announce the release of OS Property 3.0.3. This is a fourth release for the 3.0.x series of OS Property and addresses issues introduced in previous versions.
1. Gather information of the same coordinates properties on Google Map
In previous versions, when 2 or more properties have the same coordinates (lattitude and longitude addresses), the coordinates of properties will be re-caculate to make the icons of them won't be duplicated in one point on Google map. In essence, this algorithm makes the display of properties on Google map incorrectly. Because, in case properties are located in the same place like building (Lease offices orapartments), the separation of the properties to the neighboring positions is totally wrong.
Understand the problem, we have to research and find solution to gather information of the same coordinates properties on Google map.
Currently, this feature is applied to the Google map in Properties listing layout and Locator search functions.
2. OSP Search Real Homes
This is Quicksearch module for OSP Real Homes template of us. And it is being used on demo site of OS Property: http://osproperty.ext4joomla.com too. Receiving a lot requests from customers. We decide to add this module into OS Property package. You can publish this module to the Slideshow position of your template to have the Quick search module as demo of OS Property.
Moreover, from this version, the Quick search module has Auto suggestion feature. When you enter any keyword, the Quick search module will find related location and show the suggestion.
