PLACES PLUGIN: Address Is Displaying With Address
New here? Learn about Bountify and follow @bountify to get notified of new bounties! x

Description of Error

When adding an address title to a location in the places plugin, the address is shown next to the address title. (See Attachment) The address should not display next to the address title.

The address title is intended to replace the actual address' text so that, for example, if the user wants to put "Click to Get Directions" instead of displaying the address, they can.

Note: the address title should also be clickable and take them to their native map to get directions.

You only need to comment out this part of the code, in the file "widget/templates/layouts/item-details-1.html"
In line 24 with <!-- --> like this:

<!--<p class="text-primary ellipsis margin-zero"><a ng-click="WidgetItem.openMap()" href="javaScript:void(0);" class="margin-bottom-zero text-primary ellipsis">{{}}</a>-->

Also, you should replace the element in line 20 :

<div class="col-xs-8 text-left pull-left padding-right-zero margin-top-ten padding-bottom-five" ng-if=" ||">

Check out that, the HTML tag is validating via angular that is NOT going to show unless aName or addressTitle is present, since aName is not visible in the HTML, it will render empty, you need to pull out the (OR) validation and replace the ng-ifwith this ng-if=""> so it only renders when the address title is on.

Can you submit a pull request for this? Thanks!

I should not submit a pull request for this. That because the address showing up in the initial state of the plugin is something they added to. I just gave the code to edit it. I can try if you want, however.

Please do :) In our description, it gives the instructions on how to do that. Thanks!

Thanks for trying! But we were not looking to remove the address altogether, but instead, replace the address with the address title when the user enters an address title.

But the adress title already shows up
enderdba 11 months ago
The address is only supposed to appear if there is not an address title. If the address title is added, it should take the place of the address. NOTE: This should happen in both layouts

Also, can you check both layouts?

Yeah i can do, but please remake the bounty!
