I know, unfortunately this issue caused by 3rd party component which implements clusterer for google maps I cannot fix it but it is possible to find replacement i hope.

Please try to change the 7th digit at fractional part of longitude or latitude value. This is the maximum mod data precision for lng lat values
i.e.
even if you specify
84.23475387814648,-126.73779775000173
mod will cut them to
84.2347538, -126,7377977

I tested it on your forum and I was able to see two pictures in cluster if I changed coordinates from
52.0745454,-7.6061444
to
52.0745754,-7.6061444

It didn't work when I changed it to
52.0745654,-7.6061444

Edit: interestingly it works only on normal map but not on satellite map.

this is some kind of magic i believe... clustering is very interesting thing itself. ;)

edit:
Looked into this. Quite simple - satellite map has no images for suitable zoom level where the distance between A & B lat is taken into account by clusterer.

Leaflet (OSM) is the best clusterer. it shows all markers regardless distance and zoom level. I like it.

I thought it can be problem, but I didn't have photos to try on satellite map with higher resolution.

Yandex is also good.

By the way 1.3.7.a

Thanks for the new version.
What do you think about possibility to add the new map tag to the user's map by users themselves. I'm using phpBB Gallery MOD where users can create a personal albums and it's up to them how they name it, and I have to say it works really well.

hi leschek

do not play with 1.3.7 - 1.4 is coming :)

I prefer not to do the curly multi-level user managed hierarchies of maps. Actually most of users give up even understandable album names as i realized it from my own experience with Gallery MOD (3+years...). Hope it will be enough for users to point to marker at their own maps by BBCODE. But is still subject to discuss...

As to user tags I think an extra tag named 'Photos' will be good. I can place all user posted photos to it. Automatically.

In version 1.4 'Maintenance' ACP section introduced... so you will be able set up the board maps with some king of import of users and attachments

I wrote some brief introduction to MOD functions, now it is in Russian, but... I know you can read :)

hi ostridm,
I guess you are right about users. For some of them is difficult to use normal BBCodes.

Well, I can read, but my vocabulary is really bad, because I didn't speak Russian more than 2 years. But if I understand correctly there is new feature where admin can synchronize markers and refresh thumbnails. Also I think (but I'm not 100% sure) you have an error on your preview - некоотрые -> некоторые.

I played a bit with new version of the MOD on your forum and it seems there is a problem with thumbnails: I cannot see them on any provider's map. Here is example:
