forum post that include the option to pinpoint in a map (google map?)

Post by ErikH » Sat Feb 03, 2018 11:34 pm

Lets say you have a forum for people who travel. They post their picture and everything is quite nice.
Now lets raise the bar. same forum, people travel and put in their picture as usual. But now they can pinpoint the picture (or post) in a google map, or a other map service, to the main wordpress page. On this page you will see a big map with pinpoints from the forum. click on that point and you get directed bacl to the forum.

the idea is that people who read the different post on the forum can click on a button or something.

I have been reading and searching on this forum for something simular, but i have not found it yet.

Is this possible with phpbb?

These two extensions (still in development) let you map your users' current location:

[3.2][DEV] Schmoogle Members Map

[3.2][DEV] phpBB MapUsers

Not quite what I was looking for, but thank you for your effort.
I am not interested in knowing where people in the forum is, but that people in the forum can pinpoint and link theyr picture in a map.
1. write a post in the forum. upload picture.
2. link that picture to a map.
3. in the map you can see the location.
4. in that map location you can get back to the forum post.

I cant be the first one to think of this, but i understand that this might be something under development.

anyone have seen anything remotly close to what I am trying to explain?

Haven't seen anything like that here, but it smells like activity events on map. It can be done (something like that is used in some soft.. fb i think), but who will do it here. Hell knows)

I am just asking if there is a solution to pinpoint a location in forum/google maps. if I have to upgrade to do this, or change in any other way, i would like that. What would be the cost? i dont know my budget yet, but we are willing to put down some money in this.
