Is it difficult to install it?
Well, it's not complete yet. Still fighting with the Admin Control Panel stuff. I don't think it will be too hard to install, but there will be some FIND and ADD AFTER editing to be done. :D

Using an Open Source Maps API extension, I've been able to further refine the Traffic Overlay feature (USA data only, it seems).

I'm going to be installing a demo board for this MOD so anyone interested can play with it, and hopefully offer some suggestions or feature requests to make it the best it can be. I'll post a link here to the demo board when it's up and running.

Thanks everyone for your encouraging words! 8-)

I've set up the Demo board, so go have a look. PLEASE read the first Post there for info on how to login to check out the ACP. And please register, so you can check out the UCP, and so I'll know who's checking out my MOD. :D

Hey everyone: I found another new feature (well, 'new' since the phpbb2 version of this MOD came out). It changes the way the users' info windows (the map Bubbles) open. So I just changed the demo board to use this.
Please check out the demo board again and let me know if you prefer this way or the old (tabbed) way. Click on BassFace in the list, then click the + in my Bubble to see the full effect. :geek:

Bass,

I really like the new feature. But here's an idea: with the ability to expand the bubble to the entire width x height of the map, it'd be pretty sweet to show a mini-profile there. The comment feature is cool, but I don't foresee many users really putting that to use (to where it would fill out the box.) How about a an ACP controlled (and perhaps UCP on top of that) ability to show specific profile data in the box (interests, birthday, signature, custom profile lines, etc etc.) I think it'd be a cool added feature.

As for the traffic data, I don't really see how that's all too useful, but if it's ACP optioned, then why not.

On another note; is there a method to changing the shape of the bubbles to suit a custom theme? eg. less rounded corners, or squared corners, color options etc.

Keep up the good work, it's coming along nicely.
-Sammy

That's an awesome idea! I'll look into it tomorrow - I don't think displaying that info would be hard to do, but getting it through the same permission-tests that that info goes through in the 'real' viewprofile page might be hard! :o

My thoughts exactly. It'll be off by default, but since Google offers it, I thought I'd add it in - someone may find it useful for their board's users.

Yes there is an extension called extInfoWindows that does just that, where you can use CSS to use either just colored lines to create a box, or you can slice up your own PNG and use that as your bubble. I've not gotten it to work with this MOD yet, but I haven't given up on it yet. :geek:

Minor Change to the UCP

Post by BassFace » Wed Jan 02, 2008 4:20 pm

I changed the way the UCP map works, since geocoding is turning out to be a major pain :twisted: . I've made the user's chosen map marker visible on the UCP map, and it is now draggable. So you can move the marker to your desired location to set it.

I am still gonna try to add geocoding, but this is at least a little more user-friendly than the way it was, in my opinion. :?

OK, I've got the basic Profile info working, displaying only if there's a value there, just like in the real Profile page. Oh yeah, and I gotta add birthdays.

Check out my marker on the Demo board, I filled in all the Profile Fields so they would display. :D
http://phooglemapv3.bassface3d.com/phoogle.php

Then I can see about adding custom profile fields, and then integrating it into the ACP, too. I reckon if the user doesn't want his ICQ, YIM or whatever displayed, they wouldn't enter it in to their profile at all, so I'll skip the UCP part for that.

Simply brilliant! What about adding signatures? (seems like this would supplant the whole comment block to begin with)

Makes perfect sense, should have thought of that before I even typed it.

In mine as well. I much prefer the drag and drop method.
