My plugin doesn't grab it EVERY time... only 1 time ;) It then stores the values in a Lat/Lng field ready for use by the plugin.
Also I'm running an old version of Links. Version 2.X or something. My implementation is heavily customized and it has the Php front end which is good because the rest of the site is in php too. I don't need any new features so I won't upgrade.
Mmm ok, it may not work using the PHP frontend ... I havn't coded for that (as it was dropped a while back). Your best bet would probably be to do the geocoding upon add/modify functions, when the address values exist. Then assign them to the appropriate fields in your table. I'm not really much of a PHP fan, so afraid I can't help much more than that.
