    Hi All,

    Had an idea for a website and instantly thought of using BuddyPress, but I have one question to anyone in the know (I know there is alot of knowledge and wizards on this site)!

    I am after a map that I can put on a page that shows all members and groups (events would be great too). I would like the different members/groups etc to have a different pin colour if possible….

    Now I have searched and searched and there seems to be a couple out there but they do not mention if they can a) Be placed just on a page b) Show users, groups, events or differnt types of users c) show any demo sites

    FYI I want a dynamic map that allows to zoom in/out and take a wonder around to see where people are.

    AND if I am not pushing the boat out can this be updated via my profile just be typing in a location and can it be turned off if a user does not want it to show?

    I know it can be done as I have seen a version running I just don’t know if it was buddypress and/or plugins.

    COME ON PEEPS LETS SEE WHAT YA GOT! REALLY DON’T MIND IF IT IS A PAID PLUG-IN

    Have a great day

    Jayce

    @jayce103,

    Hello what you seek is a GPS functionality. That funtionality has not yet been developed by anyone. I can code that out for you as a custom plugin. Its quite an interesting functionality.

    Hi @djouonanglandry

    I have seen this in action already on another site, I am just not sure whether it is a buddypress site or even a wordpress thing.

    All the evidence looks like it is as it has activity/groups, etc but it is a privately built website so not sure.

    http://www.rvillage.com is the site and the accounts are free if anyone as 5 mins to go and have a look at the explore page on the site. This is the page that has the functionality

    @jayce103,

    this is not a buddypress site. It seems this site was developed on corephp.But i can code the functionality you want.

    What would be your fee for this plug-in style?

    I’ve done several maps:
    Wordpress posts, based on editable location field: http://www.newspebbles.com/map/
    BuddyPress members, based on signup / profile field: http://www.deeptimejourney.org/members-map/

    This does markers just for groups: https://github.com/naton/bp-group-location

    The issue with a distributed plugin is the time-based limits imposed by various geocode web services. So it’s a scaling issue. There are ways to get around that for per-site custom plugins.
