Show where you are on our map :)! Find other ocPortal users who might be near you.


EDIT: Replace with our own map addon, as the old web service had gone offline.

This was posted some time ago. Why not enable ocUserMap for the ocPortal website. this could help users connect locally and also would be a good showcase item for existing members.

But the newly-improved ocUserMap does. It's just that we would all need to enter our geolocation info after it is set up.

I still can't believe that you and I are the only people from the US, or willing to admit it. Butit's been a slow day on the site I  think.

That just means that it's an huge potential market opportunity.

I think there may be others but it seems like it's been a bit slow on the forums this week.

I guessed that I had to enter the Latitude/longitude on my profile for this to work.

I entered , 12' 30" N, 69' 58" W for Aruba on the proper lines but nothing showed up on the map.
However, when I tried another browser I received a notification that ocPortal wanted to know my location, so should I assume that the detection is automatic?

If so, it does not seem to work for me. O_o

FF gives me the popup, too, but I get it each time I visit the post.

I found I had to reload the browser to make the location appear.



Update: Jean you DO appear on the map - but not where you'd expect to be seen  :lol:

Yes, it auto-detects your location on modern browsers, but the map/page needs to be reloaded before it'll render.

Also long/lat must be in decimal (e.g. 12.34).

It works fine, but places me on the wrong side of the world.  How do you account for North/South  and East/West?
