Tell us what you are trying to do?
Im trying to create a filter for Job posts via distance from a location.

What is the link to your site?
hidden link

Each of the job posts has an address field for the location. When I created the view ive added a filter for radius search by location field. However this brings in posts which are not within the search radius. For example, I put a location of Broomfields UK and it shows posts from Southampton which is 150 miles away?

Any ideas where were going wrong

Hello,

The problem you mentioned above is abnormal, please check these:
1) Make sure you are using the latest version of Toolset plugins, you can download them here:
https://toolset.com/account/downloads/

2) In case it is a compatibility problem, please deactivate all other plugins, and switch to wordpress default theme 2020, and test again

3) Also check if there is any PHP/JS error in your website:

4) If the problem still persists, please provide database dump file(ZIP file) of your website, you can put the package files in your own google drive disk, share the link only, I need to test and debug it in my localhost, thanks

Hi

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately this hasn't worked and ill need someone to take a look please.

Ive created a test site on my server. Do you need a duplicate version still or will admin access to this suffice?

I have enabled the private message box again, you can provide the test site and duplicator package link, thanks

Thanks for the details, I can login your website, please check these:
Dashboard-> Toolset-> Settings-> Maps
in section "Google Map API key", click button "Check API", you should be able to see the error message:
REQUEST_DENIED - API keys with referer restrictions cannot be used with this API.

Please follow our document to setup the Google Map API key, and test again

I have tried with my own API key in your website, it works fine, for example search with "Gloucestershire", I get only one item, see my screenshot Gloucestershire.JPG
