Google Member Map!
« on: Apr 16, 2006, 01:27 PM »
I've just finished installing a Google Member Map mod to the site, you'll notice the item "MAP" inbetween the options CALENDAR and DONATIONS.

Just figured this would be a good way to keep track of where the users are coming from, and show things in a "big picture" sorta way.

Let me know what you think, and whether or not this is something we want to keep around.

Cheers

I noticed that if two or more members pinpoint their location in the same area, that the map just shows the last person  (in their gender colour) and not the purple cluster of pins as in the legend. :-s

yeah canuck, newtownabbey but I grew up in templepatrick nearby, something to do with st patrick I'm sure but I have no clue exactly what.  It looks like I'm really near a motorway but it's actually green and quiet.


I'M FIRST ON THE MAP FOR UK AND IRELAND!

for those unable to get the member map to work, does http://maps.google.com work for you?

also, there will likely be a new version of this addon out in a couple weeks - so don't worry about things too much right now. hopefully the data is transferrable otherwise we'll just have to re-plot the points.

Okay, that's good news! What I last heard was that google had updated the code for their map software, and the code used in this addon was made using the older code. So hopefully when the next update comes out (in a week or two) these problems will be resolved. Sorry for the trouble in the meantime.

For anyone that couldn't get the map to work before.. Please give it another shot. I've just uploaded a *fix* for IE users.


also - if you have google earth, you can download a mapping of the users by clicking on the button at the bottom. I've attached a screenshot :)
