#4542 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Group members map

Description

Right now, if I go to a member profile page, e.g. on buddypress.org, 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 bp.org site. I used bp.org only as an example. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Milestone BuddyPress.org 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 http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=mapology

Found BP Members Avatar Map which comes close but seems dead http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-members-avatar-map/

Even developer’s website seems dead http://web-world.co.il/

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