I’ve corrected some bugs now. Please try the latest version, WP Google Maps – 2.0b2, that you can download at http://www.ezbizniz.com/wordpress-plugins/google-maps
Francois, are you sure you have entered the Google Maps API key for your site?
The members can choose to not save their exact position and the localization of the IP-address is so inexact that I would say there is no privacy issue with this. However, we would like to add the possibility to turn the feature off.
FranÃ§ois, have you entered your Google Maps API on wp-admin/admin.php?page=wp-google-maps/wp-google-maps.php and you don’t see a map when you go to yoursite.com/members/admin?
When you go to your own profile, do you see the link “Update your position”?
Apart from the BP-profile integration, each user can easily add a Google Map on their blogs using the tags in http://www.ezbizniz.com/wordpress-plugins/google-maps
I’ve also added the possibility to get markers from an XML-feed. If you, in the WP Google Maps settings, click on the “See example…”-link you see the URL to an XML-feed that will return markers for 20 of the users withint the viewport of the current map. You can use this to display a map on your front page displaying where the different members on your site lives.
In the “Marker XML Feed Fields” input field you can specify the names of the different fields of the markers returned by the XML-feed.
In the “Marker XML Feed HTML Pattern” you can set how the information will be presented when someone clicks on a marker.
I will write a more detailed description on how things work on http://www.ezbizniz.com/wordpress-plugins/google-maps when I get the time to do so.
The plugin adds a Google Map into each profile with a marker where the member is. The member can manually set the location by moving the marker and saving it.
If the member hasn’t saved the position, the position of the IP-address the member last used to login is used.
You need to have the latest buddypress-member theme from trunk in order to see the map in the member profile as I’m calling add_action(‘bp_custom_profile_boxes’, ‘bp_google_maps_profile’, 2); to insert the map into the profile.
I have an early beta version of a Google Maps plugin that works with WordPress, WPMU & BuddyPress.
Go to http://www.ezbizniz.com/wordpress-plugins/google-maps and click on the “WP Google Maps – 2.0b1” link to download.
Put the wp-google-maps folder in mu-plugins, copy the bp-google-maps.php file to mu-plugins, go to wp-admin/admin.php?page=wp-google-maps/wp-google-maps.php and enter your Google Maps API key for your site.
