#4542 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Group members map

Severity: minor Version: 1.6

Right now, if I go to a member profile page, e.g. on, I see a map marking that member’s location.

The logical next step – if I go to a group, I should see a map showing markers for locations of all members, based on what the members have provided in their profiles.

Mark on a map all members of the group on a group page, potentially with the following additional functionality:

  • The markers would use more granular data for location (e.g. complete address, not just city)
  • Clicking on the marker would show a couple of member details, including name and maybe 1-2 other profile items as chosen by site owner.
  • Clicking on member name in the bubble would take to member’s profile page. Or, at least, a link to member profile page would be provided in the bubble.
  • The marker itself would potentially be a tiny profile picture of the respective member.

The request is really for BP script, not site. I used only as an example. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Milestone deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Integrating full maps capability into BuddyPress is a very large job, and is not really required for most communities. That makes it a perfect candidate for a BP plugin, and in fact, there are several plugins that do it (see, eg, Mapology).

Haven't found Mapology

Found BP Members Avatar Map which comes close but seems dead

Even developer’s website seems dead

Perhaps someone could look at taking it over and doing a BP 1.7 compatability release...
