We'd like to have combination online retailer and brick/mortar store locator page. My question is, can i setup my own form (with just zipcode) to submit to the store locator and have it load the store listings/map then? This would be from a k2 item.
Actually, I just placed the module itself and it worked great - at first. I initially created a menu item from the component and that worked. I added search module to the page and that worked. I disabled the component menu item and the module stopped working.
What we are going for is not to have a map store locator link at all. We want to link to a page that, a product locator if you will, and that will have two options. A link to online retailers, and the store locator module, after entering search zip code there, then they view the map/directions.
But we don't want a direct link so how can i disable the menu item and still have the module work?
The store locator requires a menu item, however if you do not want it to show, then create a new menu in Joomla, and add the menu item there. As long as you dont assign that new menu to any module positions it wont show up visibly on the site.
