This is a superb addition for any international community. The user simply enters where they live when editing their profile and a location map is displayed on their profile. There is also a wonderful 'map of the world' page used when searching for members which pin points all users locations. Great fun and graphics!
[original review:] Nothing worse than a great concept and crappy execution. Doesn't work on 1.7.1 and developer nowhere to be found. Conflicts with Extended Events. Buyer beware. [edited review:] Yes, I feel like a total jackarse having to go back on my prior review. I left it up there so you can see. That was frustration because this plugin is SO IMPORTANT to have on any social network that is not focused on a particular city or town. jk worked A LOT to get my plugin working with other plugins. Now everything is working as it should. Thanks jk.
Had a little trouble starting out, but the developer put me on the right track with a quick response. I found out that this plugin doesn't require me to get a google API key. Now I have a much needed location feature for my site. Update: To my surprise; this plugin doesn't only help with user location. It added a proximity search, and a map location to my events as well as a member location map. I wasn't expecting all of this. I am extremely happy with this plugin.
