MEMBERINFO should be in all in versions. Thats the template for the members profile page. The postbit and profile page just use 2 different variables

EDIT: However, you may want to rephrase your installation instructions and change "Find" to something like "In postbit/posbit_legacy find...."

Thanx for sharing this modification.
Question: What if someone has a "parody" as their location?
example = Location: Cyberspace, Tennessee

seems decent but if people are spelling their city, not everyone will spell it right meaning no results. Like for example, Chicago. Some of us spell it "Chicago", "Chi-Town", "Chi Town", "Windy City", "The GO" ect.

Hi guys,

I noticed that this mod is not supported. It would be perfect for my forum.
Are there any problems that have occurred in installations at all? If anyone could give me a bit more info that would be great with regards to the safety of installing an unsupported mod as i am new to VBulletin.

Many thanks

There is basically no installation - it's a simple template modification
And it works fabulously - I like it very much

I just love this simple modification!! Thanks a lot 4x4 Mecca

I would also like to use this on my MEMBERINFO page, but this seems a little more complicated. Any adea how I could achieve that?

Oh, and one minor thing: better to use $vbphrase[location_perm]: in stead of Location: in your template mod.

An issue I'm having is that it's not parsing the spaces as %20 so when it tries to link it links to:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=gun lake, MI
Instead of:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...n%20lake,%20MI
