Sort of. I am the original author of the Phoogle Map MOD. I am updating the MOD, and since it was abandoned, and it's development taken over by another author, then abandoned again, I decided to rename it and develop it again. It will be very similar to the Phoogle MOD, but I am adding stuff and changing stuff.

Would you consider making this a bit more versatile and allowing more of a knowledge base functionality of places? For instance, rather than a map of users and events, a map of user submitted information on places. An example would be for a hiking forum and users submit locations of great hiking spots with pre-defined fields that they fill out. Other users can comment.

Just a thought.

Looks like a good MOD, but I can't see the need to give random people online my home address. There are plenty of wierdos out there, so I wouldn't feel safe using this MOD. :lol:

I am working on 'User Submitted Events' where users can add/edit/delete 'events'. And I plan on making the name of the 'Events' map customizable from the ACP.

As for having people comment on each entry, the user who submits the event can include a link to a forum thread in the comment section (Map Marker bubble) and people can link to it and have a discussion there. phpBB is a forum after all and better suited for discussion threads like that :D .

Ah - so "events" can be customized to be anything really. Can you make the fields customizable in the ACP so that it truly does become a module?

I agree with what you mean about utilizing the core forum functionality rather than being redundant with comments.

Can't wait to see this!

No, you will need to install from scratch. But since all the files, folders, db tables and fields, etc. have been renamed you should be able to install right alongside Phoogle, then I'll have to look at a way to update the user data from Phoogle to Shmoogle. Then you can delete Phoogle completely.
