INSTALL

HOTSPOT EDITION AVAILABLE ON : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=114149
Detailed installation instructions and screenshots in the included pdf file.

Current Features



NOTE:
VBGooglemap 3.0.0 contains the vulnerability fix. Please upgrade immediately. Version 3.0.0. also contains all features from 2.5.X

As always you use modifications at your own risk.

VBGooglemap Member Edition 2.5.1 brings you a lot of new features. Itís vital that you uninstall any previous version before upgrading/installing version 2.5.1.

Upgrading from version 2.5.0 is easier. Instruction are available in the guide.

As the uninstall function will not remove your googlemap data in the database but only the templates and files you can safely remove an older version. As a precaution you should always take a backup. This should be done on each major change you make to your bulletin board.

IF YOU ARE RUNNING VERSION 1.0.3, 2.0.X AND YOU CHANGED TEXT DIRECTLY IN THE TEMPLATES YOU NEED TO SAVE YOUR CHANGES AS VERSION 2.5.0 REQUIRES YOU TO UINSTALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS.

This has taken quite some work and still will take a lot more. Please give credit where credit is due. You cannot remove any notice without prior written permission.

Changes in this version

SEE FIRST POST FOR FULL ROADMAP AND HISTORY

Planned Features
- TBD

Volume warning

high volume of users may slow down the load. Currently a load counter is included.

Languages

Thanks to Wachtmeister there is a German translation available to you all. Feel free to use it.

The translation will be updated on each new version.

Special

- Read the attached PDF for more information. The pdf is also included in the zip file.
- You'll need a googlemap key for your domain. Get your own key for your domain view http://www.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html for more information.
A googlemap key is only valid for a specific domain. You'll need a specific google account to create one.
All is explained on the googlemap link indicated above.
- Set the file permissions on the marker.xml file to 777
- The googlemap script can handle non-registered users. They will only see the main map and won't be able to enter information. This is reserved for logged in users (detected automatically)
- usergroup permissions are available in the backend
- To change location just drag the map while holding the left mouse key or by using the zoom and key functions on the left
- First time loading of the map may take a few seconds longer because of Google API hosting


Special Xbox Live version

I'm planning a lot of modifications to it.

Because it writes to an xml file and reads it for posting the markers the performance in high volumes can become a problem.

So a pagination system might do the trick but that's not an easy one.

Integration of events can be cool too.

And it indeed uses full Vbulletin security :smoke:

On international level there still is a problem with the detail level of the maps so it's best to use L&L.

I'm however preparing the zip-code function and even an address function so you only give your address and het drops in your L&L.

Still needs some work but it's in progress.

First issue to solve is a pagination mechanism (not easy with xml creation and reading, and what criteria to take)

I've been considering working with the google map API system, but havn't found a suitable geocoding system to work with UK postcodes... I notice you plan to include this, just wondered if you'd made any more headway than I have in finding an address translation / geocoding service?

looks like an interesting mod, but not sure I'd use its full functionality on my forums... I'd be very interested to hear how you get around the address translation issue though!

good work

I'll keep everybody posted on the progress I make (hopefully)
