User Map with XThreads?
Hey guys, I'm wondering if there would be a way to create a full feature Google based user map with XThreads?  There is an old unsupported plugin but it no longer works on my forum.  My members loved it but now i have nothing to offer.

Well, the old plugin allowed members to place a pin on the map by entering an address or zip code.  The map is an API from google but I have no idea how to implement.

I do have an example of a working map on my other IPB forum...see here:

I don't really see how XThreads would relate to Google maps.  You've got to figure out how to embed Google maps with your forum, not XThreads.

Ah, Ok...I was just shooting in the dark.  I'll try MyBB.com for a plugin request.  Maybe someone can whip something up.

I tried adding a map to my extra pages plugin but no luck!  LOL

Thanks Zinga!

I've tried it a bit:

You can try it there.

Actually, it's a threadlist. So, there is a thread per page there. I don't know how bad the MyBB forumdisplay performance if we set the thread per page setting to a large number Biggrin

oh wow, you really ARE a master with xthreads!!!!!

I, too, use the outdated usermap plugin for mybb.  I might have to check this one out to see how it does.

added my location to the map.

my comment wasn't meant to dig at you, but to show how flexible your plugin really is.

Perfect!  I think it works even better than the original, old plugin!

Where can I get the example!  Biggrin

(Is there anything you CAN'T do with XThreads?)
