    hi,
    When adding a new place to the directory, I am doing this manually as i noticed for most businesses added a new location is also added due to the geolocation API used.

    Would it be possible to remove the automatic lookup on the address and i can add the city based on my predefined list of cities i have already added under the ‘Add Location’ tab?

    My scenario is this. My directory is for a county in rural Ireland. The businesses are within towns, but each town has a townland and this doesn’t work well within the directory as i wish to show a town and all of the businesses within.
    example: Business 1 is picked up as ‘Langford Street, Castleconway, Kenmare Municipal District’ and business 2 is ‘Iveragh Road, Laharan, Kenmare Municipal District’. Both businesses are next to each other in a town called Killorglin, which isn’t mentioned. Although ‘Kenmare Municipal District’ is correct, its a political district that covers a vast area, Kenmare is a town 34km direct, or 65km via road.

    What i have been doing to compensate is to add the businesses myself, then after saving merging the newly created city with the correct one.
    Im adding between 5-10 business a day and its growing.
