OpenStreetMaps Osclass Plugin allows to put listings on map and provide better visual to present and search listings on your classifieds.

Don't you want to pay to Google for using google maps? We neither, as google recently introduced billing plan for using google map services and ended up free services. To use google api now you have to put your credit card here first! OpenStreetMaps is totally free!

Free google maps for osclass

Higher volume of visitors on your osclass may mean that you are going to pay tens of dollars for showing google maps, this plugin instead use free service OpenStreetMaps and has no limits in usage.

Add map with listings anywhere

Plugin has support for showing map with items on most important sections on your classifieds:

  • home page (latest items)
  • search page (search items)
  • item page (listing itself + related items)
  • publish page (pick location from map)

Radius search

As our Radius Search Plugin also OpenStreetMaps one enable users to search in radius. You can simply hook radius distance select box into your search sidebar and that's it!

Related items

When map is added to listing page (hook), you may show only particular item on map or you may choose to show also related items on map with basic settings:

  • locations of related items (same city/region/country)
  • category of items (same category or not)

Publish map

From v1.2.0 it is possible to place map into publish/edit page and let visitors to locate item from map. Map is smart and will take into consideration following:

  • on edit page will show marker on item's current location
  • for logged-in users will locate map to user's predefined location
  • for logged-out users will use html5 geocoding (visitor must enable) to find current user location

Please keep in mind that address retrieved from map is using OpenStreetMap Nominatim API (reversed geo coding) that in some cases has not ideal hierarchy of data and results may look weird. We recommend to test this before purchase as no support is provided on this api itself and cannot be improved from plugin side.

Fullscreen Osclass Map

In case map is smaller, it may be hard to browse all listings on it. Fullscreen mode enable visitors to enlarge map on fullscreen and use it's full screen size to browse listings on map. Note that on some themes or positions fullscreen mode may not work correctly (parent blocks has position absolute/relative attribute). This feature can be enabled or disabled from plugin settings.

No extra tables

Plugin use original osclass tables to store all the information. All coordinates you get for your items will not be removed once plugin is uninstalled or removed. 

Easy initial setup

When plugin is installed, it's recommended to run feeding of coordinates for existing items, as it's looping openstreetmaps api, it may take a while, however should be completed in minute for websites up to 5000 listings. For websites with more listings you may need to repeat feeding for several times.

Caching OpenStreetMap Data

As OSM is free, it has limited resources and their API has usage policy to avoid interruption of service. In order to align to these rules plugin cache/log every single query from Nominatim OpenStreetMaps API, that means plugin will never ask twice for same coordinates.

Cron to fill missing coordinates

As a lot of our customers has large classifieds with thousands of listings, we've created PHP script that can be run via cron and fill all the missing coordinates for you. OSM policy restrict usage of their API to just 1 query per second, that means it is possible to get 3600 unique coordinates per hour. 

On configuration tab you may find details on how to setup cron for your website.

 

Important

You may add 1 and only 1 map at same page. Plugin will not work with google maps (or any plugin using google service) so these must be disabled or uninstalled before using OpenStreetMaps Osclass Plugin. Map on home page is using latest_items loop, in case your theme is not using this one (as example Veronika theme), results on map may differ to those shown in your latest items section. Map will not work on search page with live / ajax search.

Avoid this plugin if you don't want a Nightmare. by Brandso on 12. May 2022

1.0 - Awful
If you are planning to add new location in your database then I would say go for Google maps or maybe Radius plugins but avoid this plugin. The developer team is very supportive as they will try their best to fix your problem but unfortunately my issue isn't resolved with their given solutions which is why I thought of sharing my experience here so that others can know what they are buying. I had added few locations in the free location database that I downloaded from osclass. Whenever I post new listing in any osclass provided locations it works fine but whenever I post any listing in my added locations it changes the coordinates and shows incorrect location on map. Now as per the developers they have standard format of how this plugin takes the location but after making changes in settings as said by them, removing plugin caches 100s of times, removing complete location from database and then adding them back, deleting all old posts and posting new listings, deleting user and creating new account, uninstalling and re-installing plugin, testing on localhost and also trying various things didn't help for me. Only thing that worked for me was testing it on Sigma theme which made me think at first that its Delta theme fault but later when I uninstalled this plugin and installed the free Google maps plugin it showed correct location which cleared my doubt that this plugin is having problem and it works fine only with locations provided by osclass. So, if you are planning to add your own locations then either go for Google Maps or can give a try to other paid plugins available here. Else the solution that I see is manually adding all the locations in this plugin cache from our mysql database which we will be adding on top of default locations but that would be a difficult job if you have lots of new locations to be added and also I am not sure if this cache will automatically get updated by the plugin when user post new listing because in past 10 days I have seen very weird behaviour of this particular plugin and on the other hand in one go Google maps work to our expectation or maybe more then that. I was thinking of buying Radius plugin first but because in Radius plugin description it was mentioned that this plugin won't charge for location search unlike google offers just few location searches for free after which they charges you. But here also the map box offers you only certain free map loads and after which they will charge you but those numbers are just double when compared with Google but its not free. So be prepared for a nightmare if adding new location is your requirement and still planning to buy this particular plugin. Best of luck

Review by Влад Келембет on 15. Feb 2021

4.0 - Very good
I liked the plugin very much, from the advantages in my opinion is the ability to customize the map in the admin panel, the plugin is included in the hook, the ability to connect your own map style with the mapbox and a very convenient function for choosing a location on the map when publishing an ad. Of the shortcomings, I advise that the plugin is not fully integrated into themes, there is no instruction for detailed information on page integration in item-post.php and item-edit.php.
