Visible link keys allows you to show only specific links, suppose you have a field 'city' with 50 different values, but you want to show only first 5 cities you entered in the options. So you can define link keys as: 1,2,3,4,5

Filter Module

Filter module can create links as per each field's option.

In the image below, we have a Laptop category with a dropdown field "Operating system", and filter is shown on the right side along with various other filters. This module can improve you site's usability to a great extent.


Map Module

This module allows you to place Geo-maps with various listings as pointers, anywhere on the site.

1. You can set your own criteria for which listings to show on the map As an example you can see how we have displayed Popular 5 restaurants on home page on our demo - http://yelpclone.demos.crowdvox.com/ To create this module we created a content scope for popular restaurants first and then selected the "popular restaurant" as our filter for map module.

2. You can set the map module to show listings on a map, that are being listed on a page, automatically As an example you can see the restaurant category page of our yelp demo- http://yelpclone.demos.crowdvox.com/listings/index/category/category:Restaurants/ To create this module, in parameters tab of map module select content type- autodetect and in visibility tab select category page. You can similarly show map on search result pages too.
