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. Itís 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.

Special

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

Sadly no. I've been extremely busy working on other projects (and enjoying the summer, lol).

In the interim I noticed someone found a workaround that provides similar fuctionality but doesn't use the vMoods mod.

Is there a chance to have this as some kind of map to show users interesting points ?
Means, that only the administrator is able to insert markers, but he has to be able to add multiple markers.
This would be a fantastic fit for my website.

Having one other weird problem with the mod in vB4.0.6.

When someone puts up a pin and it puts the "Map Me" link in their postbit, in posts their location displays correctly, but if they send me a PM and I click the link in their postbit in the PM, the link is to my pin, not theirs!

It seems the "Map Me" link works correctly when it is a post, but when it is a PM the link shows the location of the receiver of the PM, not the sender (even thought the "Map Me" link is in the sender's postbit in the PM).

Anyone else seeing this issue in vB4.x?

Tip for those using this:

I had my markers disappear on me the other day. I couldn't figure out why. I loaded markers.xml in my browser and got a parse error with a copy of what line exactly was showing it. Turns out a user had posted a link to an attachment into his thumb tack, and the character messed it up. I removed the image link, deleted markers.xml via FTP, and then added myself back on, and markers.xml regenerated with the correction, and then the page loaded correctly showing all nearly 200 markers.

Question No pins are showing on the map?

No pins are showing on the map?

I'm on vb3.7. It is installed.

How the heck do you get a pin to show on the map?

I entered my location and no pin shows on the map!

How can I fix this?

THANKS!

Thanks again.
Ronseal

Well tried this and the markers still dont show.

Maybe this is just a trash mod and not working for vb3.7x?

Installed this version for vB 4.* and it works fine.

In case the pins do not show up they most likely have not been uploaded...

INSTALL:

1. To Install, unpack the contents of the zip file onto your computer.
2. Upload the contents of the "upload" directory AS IS so that the vbgooglemapme.php file
resides in your forum root
3. In AdminCP go to "Manage Products" and click the "Add/Import" link at the bottom.
4. Under "Import Product", click the "Browse" button and specify the "product-vbgooglemapme.xml" file.
5. Click "Import"

To UPGRADE from 3.0.1 (if it's still installed after you upgraded to vB4):
1. In AdminCP, go to the VBGooglemapME Settings and record your googlemap API key,
2. In AdminCP, go to the "Manage Products".
3. Scroll down to VBGooglemapME and uninstall the product. (user markers are not deleted so existing markers)
4. Unpack the zip file.
5. Upload the contents of the "upload" directory. (The only files that changed are vbgooglemapme.php and incluces/functions_vbgooglemapme.php so copying those is sufficient)
6. import the new product file.
7. Go to VBGoogleMapME Settings and put in your googlemap API key (and any other settings).

Note: The permissions will not be correct when you upgrade so you will need to rebuild the bitmask by visiting the Usergroup Manager. The masks should rebuild on their own but make sure your group permissions are as you need them. Also, the "Member Map" link resides on in the Community drop down menu which is visible when you click the "Forum" tab.


NEW FEATURES:
In addition to being ported to vB4 I added a few features that had been suggested on this thread.
You can now select "Terrain" as a default map mode.
Terrain is a selectable mode when viewing the map.
You can now zoom the map using a Mouse Scroll wheel.


If you have any questions regarding THIS VERSION please feel free to contact me here or via PM.


Enjoy!!

UPDATE: Apparently I missed one of the fixes that ZeroHour had posted so I'm uploading a new version that includes this fix.
This worked great for me on 4.1... the only issue is it's not centered, might not be in it's own box.
