I forgot to add something in that versions MODX file
You need to add {ON_LOAD} to the <body> tag in overall_header.html of your style.
Sorry about that

Thank you for making this mod!

I am also looking forward to the 'same location fix'.

I would be using it even without this fix but I found that the map does not work at all if there are too many people with the same location.

When I use 200 different locations, everything works fine but when I use 200 identical locations (I tested it by 200x 'Moscow'), the map stays blue (like Wirbelwinds' screenshot above).

maybe if you make a query so all user the same location are displayed on one marker, maybe that will work

Thx it works fine now!

One more question. If two person have the same location in the map only one of them is displayed. Is that normal?
