I’m having several issues with the search function.
When a search a specific city, say, “Kirkland, WA”, not all results appear. In fact, only 11 results appear (when search radius is 2 miles). However, there are MANY listings in Kirkland, WA. I have to continually search for a wider radius to get all of the results to appear. Why don’t ALL listings in a given city appear when that specific city is searched? And shouldn’t the search radius be the distance from the city (ex. all listings within 2 miles of Kirkland, WA should appear… so all of Kirkland plus 2 miles radius)?
Here’s a listing that I’m trying to appear in the search results of the Explore page: http://eldway.com/listing/lucas-adult-family-home-kirkland/. It’s not until I set the search radius to 7 miles that the list shows up (it appears on page 5).
Also, the “text” search field does’t return results if an apostrophe isn’t used. For example, the name of the above listing is “Luca’s” and if the user searches “Lucas” then the listing doesn’t appear in the search results. Is there a way to fix that?
Lastly, I’d like to show ALL listing results for a searched city, and the map to automatically zoom out to display all listings of that city (I like how the map shows the number of listings within a dense search area so I’m assuming the map could display all). This way, users could see ALL listings on the map, and then zoom into the area that they’re interested in. Is this possible?
Currently, the results are a bit confusing because the map doesn’t display all listings. For example, If I search “Kirkland, WA” I see that there are 1234 listing results and the list view displays 60+ pages of results. However, the map only displays 20 results. It would be great if the list results and map worked together. For example, all possible listings appear on the map and the list results and, when a user zooms in to the map, the list results updates to display only the listings in the area. Also, when the user uses their mouse to change the map location, is there a way to have the listing results within the new map location auto-updated and displayed?
