This looks great! I have installed it, but I'm getting a no permission error when I try to view the map; as far as I can see the usergroup permissions (for Admins) are all set to yes.

Problem with premissions

Hello, I'm having a problem viewing the map. I have all my users, including admin set to be able to view the map but I keep getting the "you don't have permission" page and cannnot view the map under registered user accounts as well as admin. I'm running the latest version of VB4. Are there perhaps some settings I'm missing?

Excluded From DisplayOnly primary usergroup considered: is set to no you will need to make sure it's set to YES

Okay it works so far, so good

I see some user on the map but not all of which are registered in the settings even though I have "all" set.
the information of a user is difficult to read because the background is white and the writing!, how can I change this?

Hmm. Thanks; that certainly worked. However it does seem a bit counter-intuitive that I can only see the map if I'm excluded from it.

It's is pretty cool. I'm hoping a more fully-featured pay version will be appearing, because the binary option of showing all 130,000 members (whole thing crashes and it's only added as far as 2002 so far...) or users currently online is a little limited. I'm imagining that could be gotten around by, say, having options to show only those within a certain distance or something. It may be that that's beyond the scope of the mod writer's intentions, though - I can see it making for a fantastic member meetup tool.

I don't want to sound like I'm whining, though. It's a very nice little mod, and it's free. Thanks to the developer!

Thanks, that works. Once I set that for admin the permissions problem was fixed for everyone else.

As I said earlier this did work but as a result it won't place anyone in the admin group. So I have a few questions just in case there is a work-around for that.

Is there a way to get admins in or is there a way to add pins manually?

Also I've got members from Florida who are showing up in California on the map. Anything I can do about that?

I have someone from NY showing up in Iraq!

With something like this, it's pretty much limited to what the IP address tells it. IP addresses don't always match the user, especially corporate ones; though they usually do.

I was afraid that might be the case. As always, thanks for the quick replies.

Would like to see it use a profile field option rather than an ip address. I have a profile field set as zip code
