I run a classifieds-type site: [url removed, login to view]
The site already contains a zip code search, however, it is based on google mapping, and therefore requires a user's full address. In addition, for the zip code search to work, google mapping had to be enabled, which displays a user's address and maps it in their ad. This was a big privacy concern, so I've removed the map and address from ads. As a result, the zip code search does not work.
I either need my current code tweaked so that the zip code search works without displaying a users address and map, OR I need a new zip code search script installed. Currently, every ad requires the user to input their zip code. It is this value to which the script will be linked.
Another option is setting a craigslist-type feel, giving me the ability to break the ads up by city, and allowing users to click on a particular city. I'm not sure how this could be integrated into my current site.
When replying, please be specific with your approach.
