Question Google Map [map] tags

Simple question. I cannot find this in documentation or on the board. What goes between the [map] tags in a forum post? I've tried a full Google Maps link, the addr= portion, and LAT/LONG coordinates. I get the default San Jose map location displayed in the post.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Keith

Hello,

The maps bbcode need to be used like that without the * :

London[/map*] the result [map]London

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Keith,

It should be any valid google maps search like when you are on maps.google.com

Wevare using the google maps API 3.0 and are passing the entire string to google.

For example
[map]NY, NY[/map]

NY, NY

Hi Fxstein:

I dumbly assumed you could insert a full Google location URL between the tags. This is the first time i've encountered that tag anywhere.

Thanks for the quick response.

No problem.

I wanted such a tag for a while an finally got the chance to code it. There are many more like that, that I want to do. That is the beauty of bbcode. Once you write them, you can make it very easy for users to leverage them In posts. Same for the bay tag I wrote 2 years back.

Now that we have gotten rid of the FB legacy, its fun doing new cool stuff.

Yea, I know about being tied down with legacy code. Glad to see Kunena escape the clutches of FB. I'm really liking v1.6 RC2. It's really impressive. I had one minor hiccup with upgrading from v1.5.6. The tag buttons didn't show up but the smilies did. I just did a re-install of v1.6. The install had kept my old v1.5.6 configuration and offered me a couple of choices of which I just chose to re-install v1.6. It went through without a hitch and now works great. Good work, team.
Back on topic, I've dabbled a little with the Google Maps API and it looks pretty cool. Lots of stuff you can do there. I wish I had more time to play with it. The Facebook location API code looks interesting. I know it's controversial to some, but I think I can at least see a plugin (KED) on the way with that inside.

Thanks,
Keith

Cool, B) I also wrongly assumed that the address between the tags was the Google Http address of the map.

Brilliant feature, and dead easy to use, now :blush:

Many thanks.

New user of Kunena and new to the forum so.. Hi and great software.

I've had a few minor problems but so far mainly painless in the change over from phpBB untill now.

My site is for scuba diving and I have a ton of user generated google maps with sites marked and info added so how do I add my user generated maps ( old site )??

And while being simple to just write a location in, seriously what use is this when 99% of the time people want to share their map with a specific location down to perhaps street level..??

Is there anyway to perhaps create and add BBcode to Kunena as there was in later phpBB releases?

Please help guys and keep up the great work

Hi!

First of welcome to Kunena!

The map bbcode uses the full google API and anything that you can enter on Google Maps, you should be able to enter within the tags, that certainly includes street address and long-lat info.

like this:
6896 Soquel Avenue
Santa Cruz, CA 95062
[map]6896 Soquel Avenue
Santa Cruz, CA 95062[/map]

or

36.542777,-121.937084
[map]36.542777,-121.937084[/map]

Hope this helps!
