Add the My Nearest Locations Widget to your Magento Site
Configuration and Use
Signing up for Bullseye for your Magento Site
Please follow this link to sign up. Once you sign up, go SETTINGS/ACCOUNT in your Bullseye account and find your API and Client ID:
Copy and paste the Account ID and Search API key somewhere so you can use it later.
Load Location Data
Note that your location data will be maintained in your Bullseye account, not your Magento login.
If you are signing up for a trial and would like to load sample data, you can download it here and go to the Bullseye admin to import the sample data (see screenshot below). You may also refer to Upload Locations in a .csv file which can also be used as a reference to upload your own data. The sample file may also be helpful in helping you understand how to format your data. We include Lat/Long in the sample file, but you do not need Lat/Long in your data, we can provide coordinates assume you have accurate address data for your locations.
In your Magento account, navigate to
Copy and Paste the API key and Client ID into the appropriate fields:
Google API key if you are going to use the widgets instead of pasting the locator code into a CMS page.
Other General Settings:
Import Country: This option lets you import additional countries into Bullseye if you have a locator with multiple countries, or if you add
countries to Bullseye after your initial set up. After adding your countries and locations from those countries to Bullseye, select Import Country
and those countries will be functional in your Magento widget.
Type in the number 1 in the text field under "Default" for the country you want to default to in the search.
Top Link Text:
This will show the text of the link of the Mini Locator in the front end. Typically depending on your theme that is on the top right of the browser.
Store Link Icon:
This will show the icon next to the link on the Top Links.
This is where you can select what CMS Page the store location page uses. If you want to simply display the Bullseye search a page (as opposed to creating a smaller "mini" store locator widget that goes in your navigation) you can go to the Bullseye application and login, and create a search interface, then go to Magento and paste that into source view of the CMS Page editor. Remember to use source view.
The installer creates a page "\locations" that can be edit in the Magento CMS Page section of Magento. You can find instructions for setting up the interface that will go in Magento here. Once you create the interface, you can save the code in the Publish step, to be embedded later in a Magento page.
Text for Front End
This section allows you to rewrite the default text used in the mini locator and elsewhere. For example, if you refer to your stores as dealers, you can change that here.
Currently we can support 2 different store locator widgets with your Magento site. This allows you to display locators on specific pages, or to embed in CMS pages and blocks. Please consult the Magento documentation for more detailed instructions on Widgets. Below is an overview of the 2 Bullseye Widgets:
- My Nearest Locations: A simple widget that plots locations that are close to the user on a map or list, without the ability to search manually. Locations will merely be displayed on the map, or list and the user may select a map marker to get the address info of that location, or view the list:
- My Store: A locator that is launched from a site's navigation, allows a user to select a default store, and links to the "My Nearest Locations" locator:
