First demo of registration location check | | Feel free to check it out. Failure message comes, if something is wrong. If all is proper a map preview appears. All this stuff work without site reload. 4seven means this would be good in ucp and acp also. We will see.

Awesome work Trigger and also 4_seven (I will thank him on his forum). Just having the chance to add 'location' upon registration is good enough, but to also have the preview is superb!

thanks. the last thing left is to secure the abuse of the module ;)

edit: We build a cookie based "anti flooding geoprovider module". Each user, who want to reg, can click [Check location] 5 times. If no proper location is set, the reg is pleased to set it up in ucp. Even if the reg delete all cookies, he/she is blacklisted for a settable time (default 20 min.). Without accepting cookies, it is not possible to use the pre check. The demo from some posts above is updated.
