Re: Google Map Integration
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.
