If only classifieds would sort by distance, I would come back to using this app. It is an absolute requirement for me.
What can we do as users to get this into the app? I did it myself one time a few years ago on this application but of course had to abandon it because of the upgrade process. But, it's definitely do-able--by revisiting the code structure of the sorting and making sure that lat and long are in the record.
Is it possible to fund the development? Perhaps those of us who need it could kick in to get it done? This one capability is so vitally important. A zip code sort really is useless. I need to be able to provide a list of items sorted by "distance from me." This feature is a big deal for many locally-driven sites--which is a HUGE market.
Please let us know what it would take to get this added. OR are there hooks enough in the current version to allow a third-party add-on? I don't know. Thanks for your consideration.
