Neighborhood links aren't correct was created by Mr. Dam
Hi Everyone,
Some customers asked us that the nearby links to Restaurant, Schools, Hospitals etc. above Google in some properties aren't correct. (With the address of properties). We would like to answer as below:
As you can see the links (as sample below):
www.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=en&q=category...ls&om=1&near=Address of property.
we pass Category name (Restaurant, Schools, Hospitals etc.) with Address of property to Google search API. In some cases, Google returns wrong results because there are a lot places on the world having the same name.
And in these cases, we can't do anything, because OS Property doesn't implement any Search function.
Hope you understand.
Dev team

Good morning, how do I change the URL by taking the word "category:"?

... as the google error not find a nearby Hospital is that demand is being by "category: Hospital" and not only "Hospital" in the url.
Example that does not work (with the word "category:" in the URL): local.google.com/local?f=l&hl=pt&q=categ...a%20Leonor%201.110,% 20Campan% C3% A1rio, 20Diadema%,% 20S% C3% A3o% 20Paulo,% 2009920-080
Example that works (without the word "category:" in the URL): local.google.com/local?f=l&hl=pt&q=+Esco...r%201.110,%20Campan% C3% A1rio, 20Diadema%,% 20S% C3% A3o% 20Paulo,% 2009920-080

I set up Configuration->Layouts->Show neighborhood fields group: No, but there are neighborhood fields in Property details still. How can I disable to display neighborhood fields?
Thank You!

Yes, it's true. I no longer remembered that we had found a solution together with abombazza.
For the code:
<i class="osicon-search"></i> <a href=" http :// local.google.com/local?f=l&hl=<?php echo $activate_language;?>&amp;q=<?php echo JText::_('OS_SCHOOLS');?><?php echo JText::_('OS-NEAR-FOR-MAPS');?><?php echo $address;?>" class="category" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><?php echo JText::_('OS_SCHOOLS');?> </a> </div>
A language override is also required for
OS-NEAR-FOR-MAPS (for Italian: +vicino+a+ or for english: +near+to+)
Also on the code I changed the protocol from http to https:
<i class="osicon-search"></i> <a href="https :// local.google.com/local?f=l&amp;hl=<?php echo $activate_language;?>&amp;q=<?php echo JText::_('OS_SCHOOLS');?><?php echo JText::_('OS-NEAR-FOR-MAPS');?><?php echo $address;?>" class="category" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><?php echo JText::_('OS_SCHOOLS');?> </a></div>

[edit]
Sorry, in English it is enough just "near"
