I have read and can easily perform basic searches against what I would call the more normal ACF properties such as text/number boxes and even some of the pro fields such as the repeater. This was based by following this document: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/query-posts-custom-fields/
However I have yet to find documentation that explains how to return a recordset of posts matching an address string or geocode coordinates in the google map property.
Surely someone must have done this?
I have been trying to do something similar. I have a separate php function that does the geocoding (lat, lon & geohash). Yes, I prefer to use geohashing versus “great big circle” sql algorithm. I have done php and other dev for the past 10+ years but this is the first wordpress.
My thought was to create a custom field for all this custom data but I have to figure out how to “save” it in the database for child sub-fields. Could probably do easier outside the “repeater”. Since no answer here on my question I have resorted to other tools and will probably wind up with a CPT in gravity forms instead.
Best of luck,
Were you able to implement the functionality on wordpress?
Kindly share with us some details on how you were able to achieve it.
Thanks in advance.
