Current Features



NOTE:
VBGooglemap 3.0.0 contains the vulnerability fix. Please upgrade immediately. Version 3.0.0. also contains all features from 2.5.X

As always you use modifications at your own risk.

VBGooglemap Member Edition 2.5.1 brings you a lot of new features. Itís vital that you uninstall any previous version before upgrading/installing version 2.5.1.

Upgrading from version 2.5.0 is easier. Instruction are available in the guide.

As the uninstall function will not remove your googlemap data in the database but only the templates and files you can safely remove an older version. As a precaution you should always take a backup. This should be done on each major change you make to your bulletin board.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING VERSION 1.0.3, 2.0.X AND YOU CHANGED TEXT DIRECTLY IN THE TEMPLATES YOU NEED TO SAVE YOUR CHANGES AS VERSION 2.5.0 REQUIRES YOU TO UINSTALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS.

This has taken quite some work and still will take a lot more. Please give credit where credit is due. You cannot remove any notice without prior written permission.

I'll release a consolidated version ASAP (I'm in the middle of a move).

So expect it December 15 or so.

Edit:

Please don't install the buro 9 changes now. The XML contains a few minor issues

Should be

There are several occurences. The XML import will fail otherwise.

Interesting... the 'fix' isn't valid:
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#h-4.8

In XHTML, the script and style elements are declared as having #PCDATA content. As a result, < and & will be treated as the start of markup, and entities such as &lt; and &amp; will be recognized as entity references by the XML processor to < and & respectively. Wrapping the content of the script or style element within a CDATA marked section avoids the expansion of these entities.

If that breaks vBulletin import, then vBulletin has a bug with the correct method.

In which case all commenting of script tags should use the HTML4 method as the XHTML Transitional doctype still allows it:

Hello Chadi,

This happens when you have an image map on you page with the name or id "map" which is also the div ID for the googlemap.

Just rename your image map (probably in your header) and the problem should be fixed.

I'm having a problem with the popup bubble. It is much too wide and appears broken. A pic is attached below.

I suspect that the code causing this is the following code located in VBGooglemap_display_map

I have tried to figure out how to change the code to make the bubble appear normal but haven't been able to.

Can anyone tell what is wrong?

Very nice hack but totally useless for Europeans (excluded UK ...) due to the geodata. But i will check it later again, maybe they bring out an update for Europe in a time.

Switch the map type to Hybrid. Most of my European and RoW users are using the satellite images to find themselves.

Sorry to somewhat hijack this, but I figure those who use this hack may know of one that I am looking for. Something like the Live Traffic Map from web-stats.com that tracks the last x visitors by geolocating their IP. I searched the board and found some old stuff that used to work for vB3.x and only for Germany (I think).

Is there anything like the web-stat one out there for 3.5.x?

Thanks in advance.

Installed... modified slightly for the bubbles to appear as I choose, and instead of yellow being for "Moderators", now it's for "Administrators/Moderators".

Thanks!

Set the file permissions on the marker.xml file to 777 or 766
Please explain what this means to do in extremely simple terms. The map loads nicely, but I have no markers and need to learn how to proceed.

I'm very new to this. Not sure how to conduct a CHMOD. Again explaining in very simple terms is the the way I learn.

Thanks for your hard work on this mod!!

There are various ways to set the CHMOD. CHMOD are permissions.
You can do this by a line command if you have a shell account.
FTP programs will allow you get info about a file and let you set the permissions. If your host offers cPanel there is a section named file manager. You can use that to also make changes.

hack of the hack?

Hi,

I've just had an idea. Would it be easy to modify - in fact creating a second Google map hack - to give every user an own map?

What I'm talking about is that users can access their own map via CP where they can put as many pins as they want to, to show others where they've been travelling (red pins) and still want to go (yellow pins) and they live (blue pins). The accompanying marker text should be used to give informations about the date travelling to the set place/pin.

The user's map should be accessible for other registered users via user's profile and click-on-name-flyout.


Andreas

Thank you for your time.

Very understandable. I was able to set my permissions for markers.xml to 777. Still no markers. I'll try clearing my cache.

Actually after I set permissions to 777, it changes to 755 each time I connect to FTP. Originally it was 744. Now it seems "stuck" on 755. This may be the problem.
