About
This is a system for geo-locating your currently online users and plotting them on a world Google Map. You can click any of the pins for a link to pull up the user's location in Google Earth.

This is something I originally made almost 5 years ago. Now that I rewrote it for vBulletin 4, I wrapped it up as a product package and released it for the world to use.

Installation
  • Put the usermap.php file in your forum folder.
  • Install the product-digitalpoint_usermap.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
Notes
  • Important! - this uses the free GeoIP PHP extension, so you must have it installed on your server in order for it to work.
  • Uses datastore cache so it does not repeat GeoIP queries unnecessarily.
  • Upgraded to Google Maps API v3.
You can see a live version in action here:

Would the map be able to show usernames and link to profile? Maybe for staff groups only, or all users, but a configurable option for that could be handy.

Hi all great mod and like the idea of it. However I have an issue. IT won't show up. I tried using Firefox and IE8. The page will display but no map.

In IE8 there is an error icon in the bottom left stating Done but with errors. When clicked I get this error message:

Webpage error details

Message: Syntax error
Line: 369
Char: 41
Code: 0
URI: http://www.gamershosting.net/usermap.php
In my phpinfo.php it shows this:

geoip
geoip support enabled
geoip extension version 1.0.7
geoip library version 1004006

Directive Local Value Master Value
geoip.custom_directory no value no value
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Did the USERMAP template not get installed somehow or something (the package installer should have done it automatically). Search your templates for a template named "USERMAP".

Hi,

thanks for sharing this. I really like that your are using GeoIP. Unfortunately this map won`t be very useful for my community members without showing the usernames in the bubbles. So I dare to ask if you could add this as an option in a future release.

thank you - all the best,
Sacha

It intentionally doesn't show username. It's not a tool to track down/stalk users... and revealing a user's exact location with info that ties them to who they are specifically (username) just runs into all sorts of privacy issues.

I get your point and agree. The vBmembermap showed the names in the bubbles but it allowed the users to choose if and where their markers were set and I understand that this makes a big difference to the way your plugin is working. But yours the only one working for vB4 so I guess you`ll receive a couple more requests like mine ;-).

all the best,
Sacha

Yeah, this one is automatic and not an opt-in system where the user can choose to set their location arbitrarily. Instead it just does it and the user can't hide or lie about it to the public. So that's where the privacy issues can potentially come into play. Imagine if you could look at any Facebook profile and know exactly where they last logged in from.

Very nice, works great except that it only shows guests (yellow pins) and spiders (white pins). Even when I pick "show yourself" it shows the correct area but no pin whatsoever... any ideas?

What's the URL where it's installed?
