I am slowly progressing, first I couldn't see the map and I fixed that issue but I cannot see articles, locations, etc. Every time I type a place it gives me the error 500. Any help would be appreciated!!

function addMarker(place)
{
    // following the "Markers" portion for google maps, a position is required that specifies a LatLng that identifies  the initial
    //location of the marker using the example as follows:
    var myLatLng = new google.maps.LatLng(place["latitude"], place["longitude"]);

    //add marker directly to map
    var mapOptions = {
        zoom: 8,
        center: myLatLng
    }

    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), mapOptions);

    //instantiate marker
    var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
        position: myLatLng,
        title: place["place_name"] +", "+ place["admin_name1"],
        label: place["place_name"] +", "+ place["admin_name1"]
    });

    //to add marker to map
    marker.setMap(map);

    //listen for clicks on marker
    google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
        showInfo(marker, content);   
    });

    //get articles for place
    $.getJSON(Flask.url_for("articles"), {geo: place.postal_code}, function(articles) {

        //if articles exist show info window
        if (!$.isEmptyObject(articles))
        {
            //unordered list is ul and it starts using var as data within articles
            var content ="<ul>";
            //iterate through each loop, each storing into a string
            for (var i =0; i < data.length; i++)
            {
                //store articles into string
                content += "<li><a href=\"" + data[i].link + "\">" + data[i].title + "</a></li>";
            }
            //close list of data in articles
            content += "</ul>";
            if (data.length == 0)
            {
                content = "Not available"
            }
        }
    });
}

To properly format your code you should edit the question, select the code and click the {} icon in the format bar. This same trick works on an initial post as well.

The start of the problem is var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), mapOptions);. This is creating a new (local) map for each place. Function should be using the global map instantiated at the beginning of script.js. If you want to change the options, you can do it there, around line 37. It is unclear from the code post if myLatLang is defined.

Looks like a problem in the search function also, since the 500 errors are reported from script.js line 117.

  • Thank you for the formatting I didn't know that it could do that. I will implement some edits, and post the new code it I cannot get it working.
