Hi, Merry Christmas !!!!
How to replace the Google Map by the map OSM, in cmap or market template ?
Like in your demos.
Regards.12/26/2018 at 9:51 am #480170
Do you mean how to replace the OSM map with the Google Maps? I ask because the template demos show Google Maps, not OSM.
To do this, make sure you have recent versions of cMap and Market installed. Then follow the steps in the tutorial on how to get your Google Maps API keys from Google. After you have received keys from Google and added them to Connections, Google Maps will be used instead of OSM.
Hope this helps, let me know.12/31/2018 at 5:16 am #480438
Oops, I thought the demo models showed OSM.
I saw your post and that’s what I would like. thanks!
- But the “control layers” at the top right is not displayed correctly.
- And the link “Get Directions” in the popup refers to google-map and not to OpenStreetMap.
Is it possible to fix these small issues at the next update?
I think that “control layers” is not essential with OSM.

RE: But the “control layers” at the top right is not displayed correctly.
Thanks for reporting this! I have made a slight logic tweak so the layer control will not display.
RE: the link “Get Directions” in the popup refers to google-map and not to OpenStreetMap.
OSM does not have a routing feature. The only other option would be to generate a link to another routing provider which happens to use the OSM map tiles. I can not think of any of hand. Honestly, not sure it worth the effort. The button is simply a link to Google Maps with a latitude/longitude. No other information is passed and none is being queried from Google, at all.
Hope this helps!01/02/2019 at 4:40 am #480553
Happy New Year !!!

Why not redirect the link to OSM, like this:

RE: Why not redirect the link to OSM
Because there are no routing features in OSM (no way to actually get directions).
Hope this helps clear this up a little.01/02/2019 at 1:06 pm #480624

Ah okay I have understood. :) Thank you for the info.
And for now, for the “layer control”, I’m going to put a “display none”.01/02/2019 at 1:49 pm #480645
RE: OSm “layer control”
I have found and corrected this issue … I’ll be releasing an update by end of week. Might be worthwhile to hold off adding custom styles since it is a very minor styling glitch.
Hope this helps!
PS. The fix is making sure the layer control is no output at all with OSM unless there are actually layers to control. In the future there will be the possibility of layer control (for categories, not individual entry addresses) which is why you may not want to add the custom CSS to hide it.01/02/2019 at 2:19 pm #480646
Great !! Thank you .
I’ll wait for the update.
