hypeMaps is part of the hypeJunction bundle. Before installing, ALWAYS:
hypeMaps is a Google Maps bridge for Elgg
Requires: hypeFramework 1.8.5+
@Ismayil I noticed if you set a default location in the hypemap like NY, NY and any user that signs in their location is automatically assigned on their profile to NY, NY. The system does not pick their location based on their IP. Is this a bug or the system designed like this? Also noticed for mobile, it does not update their location properly, can I suggest something like http://pear.php.net/package/Net_GeoIP/redirected where the location is based on the IP.
It is intentional. I personally hate it when sites identify my location without my permission. Using gears/browser settings is a more appropriate solution, where users give their explicit consent to be tracked.
Rule #1: don't fix what's not broken
Rule #2: look in the plugins settings - You can define default location
Tip #1: an answer to 99% of "how" questions in Elgg context is "create a new plugin / add on that will create the functionality you are looking for"
I am newbie, and on top of that not a programer either. So please forgive me if I am asking any basic questions as I just trying to learn this great application. My question is as follow.
1. How do I add a locations field to groups, which will link to hypemaps.
2. When I click on add new place in maps it doesn't do anything.
Please help me out here.
@dterango, nothing's wrong with you. Something's wrong with your location. hypeMaps thinks you are in the middle of the ocean, which makes me suspect your server prevents the plugin from making geocoding calls. Make sure file_get_contents() is allowed on your hosting.
@mpcourt, sorry mate, no timeline yet. Completely rebuilding the UI/UX on all of my plugins and it's taking time.
i have the same problem as dterango, although its a bit weird, it detects my location through the browser perfectly but just sticks any place i add in the sea and also the default location is the sea too. That default location is long/latitude of 0,0 tho so it could be the file_get_contents() issue maybe?? although that seems to be allowed and if it was that why does the locating through the browser work?? thanks
I have a good night view this and other plugin installed on my site but when I block the active site and the requirements that I have put intothis and the other hyper that could be the reason for me to block thepage and when I delete the folder in mod activates the page againthanks for the information
PLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEASSE someone help. Everything is working perfect apart from two small problems.
Firstly, like alot of other people the perminent location is not working! Screenshothttp://postimage.org/image/bxssibtiz/ there must be fix to this, people keep asking this question but never get an answer.
Secondly, the image of the calendar within events cuts off the last few months, this maybe something to do with my theme but here is a screenshot http://postimage.org/image/cb6vufwaj/b65f1431/
