  1. Any more cheek and i'll throw the book at you , so i will.
  2. furlongs lol... 'something like that' anyone care to look at rightmove and tell me what the hell is going on under the hood? could be ' typeahead' j.s . with a json file of postcodes and counties,.Could be ajax calling the locations from the database... just because i type ajax into google doessnt mean that is the correct way to do it... sweet jesus mother of god.... its like getting blood from bent coppers round here, so it is
  3. nice,,so i can set the radius from the selected lat/long of the properties. Rightmove only lets you search minimum 1/4 mile radius which is to large... 1/8 mile be ideal.
  4. They have a big database of locations. Probably purchased from and/or subscribed to a service that tracks stuff like that so they don't have to try to stay up to date themselves. interesting. so do you think they use Ajax to get the locations from a database or would it be an API.... once a user selects e.g. Islington, London . does this then add that as a $variable to a select statement to the database to create a list of properties on the next page ? $location = islington select * from table where $location
  5. Hi, i'am looking for best practices in 2019 for Search on a website. Very similar to rightmove / zoopla etc. 1) They allow the user to search by county / postcode / town. How is this list populated in the drop down? is it a list of towns in a plugin which are then used as variables to populate the mysql select query,, or is it ajax populating the search input with a call to the db... Reason iam confused it i know of a site with no property in a certain area but the list still predicts the area ...i.e. if no matching address is in the db how is it populating? 2) they also have a search function that once the user has arrived on the page by postcode..users are able to search 1/4 mile 1/2 mile radius etc from the postcode for other properties... how is this working? thx for your time in advance . in the jpeg i show the search box...when user types 'lon' it brings up everything with lon in title i.e london, londonderry, long meadow etc
