I have removed the UCP tab (not needed)

I added 2 more accounts (demo-KY and demo-CO). What else would you like? What would you like to test?

I can not see the new users on the map.

I would like a function with which one can measure the distance between 2 selected locations.

Which source does the map use to locate all users?

Is it possible to show an entire list of users?

I can not see the new users on the map.
Set the radius bigger and you'll see all the people in that range.

I'll consider that.
Which source does the map use to locate all users?
Uses the custom profile field "location".
Is it possible to show an entire list of users?
No, only the number set by the Limit slider. This is intended for sites with thousands of users, so that wouldn't be practical.

Thanks for your interest.

to Viola,

thanks for the demo.

See previous reply why number of locations is limited. Note there is a dropdown of users found within selected radius.

Anything else you prefer from the old demo?

Thanks for your interest.
