HI Zick,

Remove this line of code and the error message will be eliminated:

  if (!$accountsRecord) { dieWith404("Record not found!"); } // show error message if no record found

No problem.  I often ask Ross to take a look at my code when I have trouble locating an error. A fresh pair of eyes really helps.

Glad it is working now!

Hi Zicky,

I found your post here very interesting and I think it's what a client is going to need so, if you don't mind, let me ask a clarifying question or two...

Are you using the Geocoder plugin to create google map links for multiple accounts?  So, if you have 100 clients with accounts on said site, each client's php/html page would show their googlemap?

Have you had any challenges doing this...such as the geocoder possibly wanting to only provide googlemap info for just one account even though you have multiple accounts?

Thanks!

Equinox

Hey Equinox,

I'm not using Geocoder for the solution, but instead loading the LatLng directly into a URL that queries Google Maps (launched into a new browser window) once the link is clicked. Have a look at the code below... you can replace the <?php echo...> with some geo LatLng coordinates ( 40.7127  -74.0059 ) and see the results.

<a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/@<?php echo htmlencode($accountsRecord['latitude']) ?>,<?php echo htmlencode($accountsRecord['longitude']) ?>,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0" target="_blank">Geo Location</a>

Hope that helps clarify what and how I'm using it.
