Re: [3.1+][DEV] Shmoogle Members Map

This used to exist in 3.0 as a MOD many years ago: Shmoogle Maps MOD by BassFace. The author basically abandoned this MOD over 5 years ago and maybe even before that as I had to modify it and get it to work for a client (I have posts in the above topic indicating this). Fast-forward to today and another client is asking for this so I'm going to be converting this into an extension as I still have the code with me.

The purpose of this topic will be to gauge interest in this extension, test the extension once it's ready for that and to also gather feedback on desired features. I don't have a real demo of this but I do have a link to the client's 3.0 forum for whom I last installed this for so it can be used as a reference point:

Already using google maps which is a bit of a pain with no user control!

I look forward to this

NICE! Glad to see someone is picking this up. I used it A LOT back on 3.0.x and I think google kept changing a lot of things back then pretty often and BAssFace pretty much gave up on it. I think someone else took it over after that but now I cant remember its been so long.

Either way, nice to see this surface again. :)

Very interested on this extension. I hope it is developed!

The announced features on first topic are enough for me.

David, any chance that the inputting of location can be a permission?

I don't see why not. Maybe one for seeing it at all and another for allowing to add location. I'll get that added during development.

In looking at how the map API key is created it appears Google has made it more complicated, not that the extension would handle doing that anyways, but the user might find it a bit confusing to do. Not much I can do about that I guess other than try and provide "clear" instructions, maybe a post on my forum.

Yep, but has been on the back burner due to actual commitments. You're welcome to take over it if you want ;) otherwise it'll be a while.

Thank you, David.

Happy to see, that you will finalize this work. I think a lot of other users will also appreciate because the developer of another usermap just let us know that he has abandonned his work.

Regards,
Nico
