    I would like to add locations by longitude/Latitude rather than the address, we don’t have google compliment addresses yet, so we get different places for locations entered


    Hi Hani,

    I’ll look into this. Currently you can drag the marker to the location – but obviously that’s only practical if you can get it address close enough to the desired location…

    Hi Steven, I cannot drag the marker, and many of my events do not have an address – e.g in a field.

    It is very frustrating to loose all the accuracy I would get by pasting Google style coordinates into a single “lat, long” field and be forced to enter 5 fields which put a non dragable “postcode resolution” marker many miles away.

    Would it be possible to have a single “lat, long” field for the venue location field?

    Thanks, David

    Sorry – Stephen!

    Hi David,

    Sorry, I thought I had replied to your message. When you say you cannot drag the marker – do you mean you can’t drag the marker, or to do so is impratical? You should be able to drag the marker on the venue edit page (not the event page), so if it’s the former that sounds like it might be a bug.

    If the latter then I’ll have to take another look at allowing lat/lng co-ordinates to be entered.

    Hello Stephen, Thanks for clarifying the dragging marker issue. It is working now. Looking forward to entering lat/long for Venue locations. David

    Hi Stephen, I just wanted to thank you very much for adding the Lat/Long field for the event location – it works a treat, and saves me an enormous amount of time! David

    Hi Stephen,

    I stumbled upon this old thread as I am looking for the same functionality. I am using the FES form and am not able to drag the marker or enter latlong coordinates when creating a new venue. Is there a way to add the full functionality of the Create venue map to the FES create venue option?
    Thank you very much!

    Hi again Stephen,

    please let me know if there is a way to have the same functionality in FES in regards to the latlong coordinates and the draggable maker.

    Thank you,

    Florian Geier

    Hi Florian,

    Apologies for not having responded to your previous post. It’s not possible to drag the marker when creating events in FES.

    Thank you for your reply,
    are you planning on adding this feature to FES in the future?
    For now the lat long input field would be sufficient for me, if there was a way to add that it would be great. Thank you!

    This feature was added to v1.6.0 of FES
