phpBB3 Phoogle Map PROGRESS REPORT

Post by BassFace »

I've managed to eliminate the Phoogle class that the phpbb2 version of this MOD relied on. Doing this seems to have solved some display issues caused by the phpbb3 page header and the Google Map API javascript.

Group dropdown box is now working,
Group text coloring now matches your phpbb3 color settings (for Administrators, Global Moderators, etc),
Use of special map markers for Groups (e.g. Admins and Moderators) working, overrides 'normal' icons when turned on

Need to fix:
Avatars - these are handled differently than they were in phpbb2 FIXED
Pagination - also handled differently

I think I have the same request as the user above. My forum has 2.000 users that belong to the same town in Spain, so showing a world map would not make much sense. Is it possible to start with a high zoom level focused on a certain area?

If you need help with the spanish translation, tell me, I can do it for you when the time comes.

Yes, the admin can set the starting map center point and zoom level.
Also, the admin can set how many markers to display at once and results are paginated (still need to figure this part out for phpbb3).

Not sure why that was happening, Google Map API controls that part of it, but most major cities have images available for even the highest zoom levels.

Sometimes that happens when viewing cities through google maps. Your best bet to fix this is to refresh your browser and make sure you are not downloading a lot of files while you are viewing the google maps.

I just spent a little time reading through the Google Maps API Blog, and WOW! I found some new features and had to add them instantly! The Admin will be able to turn these new features On/Off through the ACP.

New: Terrain Map Type - screenshot says it all.
New: Localized Search - a search bar in the lower left that slides open/closed and returns results only from the geographical area shown on the map when the search is entered. 8-)

Also, for USA only, a traffic overlay (not a true map 'type'). I'll have to check on how to toggle this on/off at the user's level. But the feature can be turned on/off through the ACP.
