I have this exact same problem: the geotagged address is too specific and, at the same time, misses the address number. The link to the explanation doesn’t go anywhere.
I understand the address customization may not be a simple problem, but I tested all the supported providers and I find it odd that I couldn’t select the address with corresponding number in none of those, which made me think it was some problem with my configuration or use case, but testing the providers on their own demos I found the results to be similar.
This is a conventions center in São Paulo, Brazil, which I got from Google Maps.
Abbreviated name: Av. Profa. Ida Kolb, 513
The exact way Google Maps shows the address, if the provider didn’t find it, I tried the full name.
Full name: Avenida Professora Ida Kolb, 513
Mapquest doesn’t even show addresses in Brazil
While Mapbox showed the address with number using the full name, when adding the location to a topic using the plugin, the result omits the number:
The only provider that correctly identified the address with number is Mapzen (Mapbox did too for the full name), which brings me to the next question:
The “See further” link in the OP Mapzen removal note also doesn’t go anywhere. Apparently the service is now called Geocode Earth and doesn’t have a free plan anymore, but looks like the Geocoder is open source and can be installed locally.
I’m currently using Mapbox as it is the closest to what I need, but i expected the address number to be kept in the results (I believe the location tagged on the map is considering the number, so it’s no big deal).
A separate question: Is it possible to hide the full address from the post subheader when a location name is given? In this given example, it would show only the name of the conventions center (“Centro de Convenções Promagno”) and the full address would be used only to tag the exact location on the map.
I’m sorry for the wall of text, this plugin is great and the possibilities that this + the events plugin brings to my community are really awesome.
