Positionstack - New Geocoding Service Provider Addition
In 5.16.beta.2 we added a new geocoding service provider to JV-LinkDirectory. Positionstack geocoding was built to offer a free and reliable alternative to expensive Enterprise-grade geocoding software, making use of a series of innovative technologies and extensive datasets available on the market and combining them into one powerful geocoding API service with global coverage.
Even as part of their free plan, positionstack offers 25000 geocoding (forward + reverse) requests per month. We find this to be a great value proposition to those who are seeking an alternative to Google geocoding option.
Choose between Partial Word vs Full word Search
In 5.16.beta.2, we added yet another important feature to category pages. As the admin, you can select how you want users of your directory to search listings in category pages. You can decide to use full text matches or use the traditional partial word searches too! This is one more level of control to administrators!
We heard you!
Most of the changes that we have introduced in this version are coming from your valuable feedback and requests via tickets. If you feel excited about these changes, you can even decide to Buy us a Coffee! and show us your appreciation of our work. :)
