Improved interaction between users, adding multiple pictures and more new features
At Mapotic, we have spent the summer holidays working on interesting projects and development of new features that were most requested by Mapotic users. Today, we’re bringing you an overview of what new has been added to Mapotic and you can now use to improve your map.
New visibility settings of attributes and their practical use
*feature available with a premium extension AdminPro
The `visibility settings` of attributes opens new possibilities. Admin PRO subscribers will find this option when adding a new or editing an existing attribute. Read more on what you can achieve by tweaking this setting in our article about Attribute visibility settings with examples of use.
Improving the work with pictures
Interesting pictures always make a place detail more interesting. That’s why we decided to bring a breath of fresh air into this feature – we’ve updated the uploading popup window so you can add multiple pictures, add/edit captions for each of the pictures and set the main image and select its crop easily. All organized in one place.
Let your users focus on your map
* feature available as part of a premium extension WhiteLabel
This feature available with the premium WhiteLabel add-on allows you to change the way your map is displayed on the homepage. If enabled, the information sidebar on the left side is collapsed when the map is loaded, so it doesn’t distract user’s attention and motivates him/her to browse the map full of interesting places first. The sidebar expands once the user clicks one of the places, or after clicking on the “Show details” tab in the left top corner of the screen.
Subscribers of the premium add-on White Label will find this option in the admin panel of their map in the settings of this extension.
Additional checkbox for custom rules agreement
* feature available as part of a paid extension WhiteLabel
Another feature that has been requested by multiple map admins brings the possibility to add an additional mandatory checkbox to the registration form. The text displayed next to the checkbox is fully editable by the map admin and it’s possible to insert both internal & external links. This gives you the option to, for example, make all new users agree with your community rules in order to register.
If enabled, users will find this checkbox in the registration window and they won’t get to the next step unless they agree with the inserted terms.
You can create a Static page with the Admin Pro premium addon enabled. You can make one with your community rules and just link to this static page in your custom registration checkbox.
* feature available with the premium AdminPro add-on
Map admins can now place a contact button right into place detail to provide a much more convenient way for the users to contact each other (eg. asking some details about certain place. In order to contact the founder of a place on the map, user have to log in to the map using their email address or alternatively they can use a quick login using their Facebook or Google account.
After the message is sent, the recipient will receive an e-mail with the Subject & Body of the message and the contact e-mail that he can reply to.
