Google Map for Members is up...

Click Googlemap in the menu bar up top.

Vbgooglemap 2.0.2 Usage
  • To insert a marker you must be logged in.
  • If you are logged in a "your entry" button will appear next to the show map button.
  • To insert your marker you have to click the "your entry" button. That will load a smaller version of the map.
  • To insert your location a you must enter the latitude and longitude by dragging and zooming the map to get a closer view of your location. If you keep zooming you will eventually see your street name if Google has the streets for your area loaded. TIP: Double clicking will center the map on that exact spot.
  • After centering the text field must be filled in (the maximum number of characters is 50.
  • Confirmation is done by clicking the Insert your information page.
  • After the initial insert the “Your Entry” button will change function automatically and will allow you to get the direct link information and allow you to update your location.
  • The information is automatically filled in for HTML, BBCODE and URL.
  • The same page also functions as your personal update page once you have entered the data. This includes a delete function to remove your data and marker. A RED marker will show the previous location you entered.
  • If the information is changed by using the map the links will automatically change, but the data change MUST be confirmed in the database by clicking the update button.

Enjoy!

The map may be too wide for some viewers if you have your screen resolution set too low. We may end up making it smaller.

If you are experiencing problems, simply post here and describe your problem. I'll check into it asap.

Sample of what the default map size looks like:

The new version is now up...

As always... use caution in pinpointing your exact location. You can mark it dead on your house or mark it on your neighbors house, a nearby landmark, etc.

Maybe the Googlemap Me link under the avatar will get more people thinking about it.

This is really cool. Sonnie, you really are in the sticks, aren't you?

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I am logged in in but I do not see the "your entry" button either, all I see at the top of the Map is - Show Main Map, List Users and About vbgooglemap
Am I looking in the wrong place?
