Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes  

This is my first contribute to everyone here so if you could click install so that i further add to this.


Here is a LIVE working demo.
minus the added pictures and colored markers which is an addiontal install. Insutructions listed below.

Im using this with vb 3.5.1 and vbadvanced cmps 2.1

Google Maps with Hot Spots - Events for CMPS

******** You will need your own Google API Map Key for this to work. You can get it by going here:http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html

***Install: Add a module as you normally would, and copy the below into the template content.

To create a module
vBa CMPS > add module > template > then give it any title you want and display order
Then give it a name I called my "googlemaps" so the name is now "adv_portal_googlemaps"

******** note google maps do slow down load times *********

Copy the below and place it into the template content.


After you have your Google API Map Key enter it where it says "Enter_Your_Key_Here " Should be around line 7 or so.

Convert an Address to Latitude & Longitude
Ive been using this site to convert an address to the proper latitude and longitude.
http://stevemorse.org/jcal/latlon.php - for US locations
http://www.geocoder.ca/ - for Canadian locations


Adding Different color markers.

If you want to add different color markers, line 10 should read:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Under that add
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change the number for each different marker you want. So the more different marks you want youll have to add that line and change the number as well as the coded below.

Then after you have added that you will need to add this: This will have to be added for each marker you add.

Add this right below the first marker. Should be around line 46 or so.

Now see where it says "large_yellow_marker.png" and "large_yellow_marker_shadow.png" You will need to input your own markers there, full url if needed.

Each time you want to use a different marker you have to call to that variable/marker. So in the example I have:

You would chang the icon0 to icon1 so it would read like this.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Adding Images to the pop up windows.

You can add image to the pop up windows as well. See picture attached.
In a call to variable where it says:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Right after

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and before
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You can edit that as if you were doing a regular html page.

To add this to its own CMPS Page
Follow these directions and skip number 7, because I set this up as a template file and not a php file.
http://www.vbadvanced.com/membersare...tid=4&pageid=6

Then whatever you called your page in the immediate above directions from vbA under "page identified" ( i used googlemap ) edit your navbar and inclue
to a link to that page.
Mine is

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace googlemap with whatever you called your page under page identifier.



*** added screen shots ***
First shows the installed look.
Second picture shows the popup window when a marker is clicked
Third shows the addiontal useage of colored markers. Code is listed above but not in the orginal install.
Fourth Picture shows the popup window with added images. How to is listed above but not in the orginal install.

Im trying to make this module as a new page so I can link it in my main menu. I am not sure where to add the code to when adding a new page though. Any help would be great.

Adding the module as a new page ? Not sure Im following you.

To create a module
vBa CMPS > add module > template > then give it any module title you want, along with the column, and display order
Then give it a name where it says " template to include"I called my "googlemaps" so the name is now "adv_portal_googlemaps"

Then choose the style you want this to work with.
The paste the code listed above into the "template content" section.

Leave the rest as default, but set the usergroup persmissions at the bottom for whatever you would like. The click save.

Does this help ?

Dang... first install? You guys should really click install if you are using this. While it doesn't allow people to add theit own markers like the other Googlemap mod, the author deserves your support.
