I am new to php and mysql and really need a distance calculator between nodes and users.
The idea is as follows: a search with a dropdown option ( Builders > Bricklayers > Plumbers > Carpenters etc ) and a search box on which a postcode has to be ientered by the User.
On submitting I would like a list of the chosen trade which is nearest to the user..
I have manged to make a search using g-map and views which shows the trades on the map but showing the distance and in order of nearest first is what I really need.....
I have found an interesting website which some of you may be able to do something with PHP Zip Code Range and Distance Calculation.
I asked the guys on Drupal.org but no one explained it to me so I was wondering if you UK guys could.
Any help would be appreciated.
