I’ve installed the store locator component and obtained a Google Maps API Key, for a localhost installation using Joomla 1.5 version 1.5.18 on XAMPP.
I’ve entered various addresses in the Location Manager, however when I view the page from the frontend the input boxes are showing the coding that’s generated behind them. I’ve attached a screenshot to illustrate the problem.
Any idea what is causing this to happen and how I can resolve it. I’ve tried it with and without Moo Tools selected in the parameters.
I believe your problem is caused by not having PHP short tag support enabled in your php.ini. You need to set short_open_tag=1 in your php.ini or if you can override your directives in an htaccess file or local php.ini file you can do so there.
to enable via htaccess file add the following line:
php_flag short_open_tag on
