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.x brings you a lot of new features. It’s vital that you uninstall any previous version before upgrading/installing version 2.5.x.

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 3.0.0. 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.

Changes in this version

SEE FIRST POST FOR FULL ROADMAP AND HISTORY

Planned Features
- TBD

Volume warning

high volume of users may slow down the load. Currently a load counter is included.

Languages

Thanks to Wachtmeister there is a German translation available to you all. Feel free to use it.

The translation will be updated on each new version.

Special

- Read the attached PDF for more information. The pdf is also included in the zip file.
- You'll need a googlemap key for your domain. Get your own key for your domain view http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html for more information.
A googlemap key is only valid for a specific domain. You'll need a specific google account to create one.
All is explained on the googlemap link indicated above.
- Set the file permissions on the marker.xml file to 777
- The googlemap script can handle non-registered users. They will only see the main map and won't be able to enter information. This is reserved for logged in users (detected automatically)
- usergroup permissions are available in the backend
- To change location just drag the map while holding the left mouse key or by using the zoom and key functions on the left
- First time loading of the map may take a few seconds longer because of Google API hosting

I am up to step 7 and am in trouble. Where in the Navbar do you need me to put that code?

Also Step 8 has me lost.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You put it wherever you want the link to show up. You'll have to have some understanding of the code to figure that out. Step 8 is basically the same thing. The $post[findme] code is like a variable for a link that will read My Location. You can see an example of it on my board for the members who have added their location.

How about an option to show the member's profile picture for the image?

Best to check the thread on there.
Given that it disappears when removing the bitfields from your hacks, I tend to think that it is more your hacks not being written to follow the vB way, rather than a vB 'bug'.

*edit* Hmm.. perhaps it was a combination of this hack and another.. seems to be working fine with the lastest version.

Apologies for casting aspersions on your hack sir.

Although, it might be an idea to not use the vb_ prefix...

Thanks Stonyarc for this wonderful hack. Hust a question. Is it possible to disable the possibility to insert an image in the marker so that only the text is shown?

you need an API-key from google. This key only works for the exact domain you entered on google

You have to add your location in manually by going to "Your Location" in the map of course, but if you have already done that then did you click the auto approve or check the Approval log in the ACP ?

German Translation

Hello,

first of all, THANKS for this great modification. I'm running vBulletin 3.6.0 and installed the map last night. All is working fine!
But one tiny problem: I also downloaded the german *.xml, tried to install it - and got the error: *invalid file*.

Is the german *.xml not compatible with the map?

How could I translate myself? I tried already to translate the phrases but this only takes effect in the Admin-CP. As nearly none of our users is able to read english, it would be great, if you could let me know, where I find the phrases for the map.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
Vertippsel

Edit: Some people are really too stupid (me for example..) I made changes in a local copy of the product...xml and that's why the changes couldn't take effect . No problems any more!

Hi,

I have the same problem as some others...
I cannot add any entry.

Entries from accounts are added, however markers do not appear on the map.

Marker.xml has 777 permissions, so ther problem is not there.
Any ideas?!?

EDIT:
2 mins later I got it:
This works like a moderated thread if you have the option "Auto approve additions to the map" set to OFF.

You need to aproove additions manualy by going to the Vbgooglemap ME-->ME Unapproved view and approove entries.....

*edit* nm.. found it in the pdf.

I 2nd the motion to increase the zoom level of the postbit link or make it customizable.
