Dear All

I would appreciate your feature requests if any. I do not promise to implement these features immediately but your feedback will be helpful to make this mod better.

I think it was nice idea to provide pre-registered users. I would like to thank Mr. emosbat for it and even the post formatting and structure I borrowed. In fact I thought it was a template.

I tried the MOD and I like it (I have small forum about travelling so it can be very useful).
A few features I would like to see in this MOD.
1. I would like to have option to add POI marker in reply too (or even better I would like to create POI marker on main map with link to reply or blog or somewhere else - I was using forum topic for sending pictures about travelling ( a reply every few days), but with User blog MOD it looks better, because users can reply and it doesn't break layout).
2. I would like to add gps tracks (it is possible with google maps) and it would be awesome if I can highlight one track (maybe with colour) if I click on link in post (something like "Look where I was today")
3. I would like to hide/show map on the top of the topic and forum.
4. Is possible to choose centre of the map for forums (and maybe zooming too). I mean if I have forum about Egypt I would like to set centre of a map to Egypt. If I have forum about India I would like to set centre of map to India
5. When I'm adding POI marker in topic (and hopefully in post too) I would like to choose the location on the small map - it will be helpful for people who doesn't have GPS or the skills to find their location elsewhere.

Thank you for nice MOD.

hi leschek

thank you for your suggestions.

4 & 5)
I will do it before the initial release.

3 )
Please explain further. Who will hide/show map - every user?

2) 1)
Technically possible but this feature definitely is not for initial release. If it will be allowed to place single geo object to each post (POI GPX so on) - finally one topic could be a map. Good idea.

As to user Blog mod the same - next release. It is not so wide spreaded as forum so... hope you understand.

1 - blog MOD - I understand that you can't support every MOD (but it would be nice plugin for user blog MOD) and that's why I thought it would be enough if I can add POI markers (or GPS track) via main map and make link to article in blog.

3. I imagine that I will choose in ACP if I want show map in topic by default or if user have to click on button (or icon) ("show map") to see map. (Example - On my very old board you can try to click on blue link Kalendar (on right side under red frame) and it will show calendar. If you click on the link again - it hide calendar).

hi leschek

3) is included in scope too,

it raises usability and also brings possibility to off-load browser and server from probably unwanted behavior and load.
