gd_dup_check

Keep your database clean and free from duplicate or degraded entries with the Ajax Duplicate Alert add-on.

With the add-on activated, GeoDirectory will check new entry titles in real time against those already among the titles in the database. If it finds a match, it will warn the user that they are about to add a duplicate. The user will be prompted to check the existing entry before going ahead with their new entry.

It is easy to set parameters for the add-on to check. For each custom post type (CPT) you can specify whether the add-on should check against: Listing Title; Address; Phone or E-mail.

  1. If duplicate entry found, would it be possible to allow the user to pick the already existing entry and submit a place? This will allow the user to submit same business at multiple locations.

    • Hi,

      currently the system doesn’t allow to add places in multiple locations, but it is in our to do list…

      Thanks for the suggestion,

  2. Would it be possible to have it recognize the address instead of the name. A user may put in a duplicate entry with a slightly different name such as The XYZ company instead of XYZ company

    • Hi Andres, you can do more, for each custom post type you can set if the check is to be made for :

      Listing Title
      Address
      Phone
      Email

      Thanks,

  3. If two entries are found to be the same, does the admin combine the two? And can any comments, reviews on the duplicate be moved into the original entry?

    • Hi,

      natively there is no such option. It would require a very complex SQL statement…

      sorry
