Textpattern Blogmap - Test Release

The alpha tests are done, blogmap on samisdat.org is done.
Thanks for testing, i keep all inputs and there will first on the blogmap

<img src=‘http://samisdat.org/images/37t.png’ style=‘width:200px;height:137px;float:right;margin-left:10px;’ alt=‘An Example’ />

Just yet i finished a first version of a textpattern blogmap and i need some testers till the finished map move to txpmagazine

It´s a google map and its driven by Google Maps EZ.

To include the data i written a plugin that generates a rdf-file with position etc.
The blogmap reads the rdf, saves data in db and display the map.

So install the plugin, register for the map and give me some feedback.
Errors finding and improvement ideas, both welcome. Above all improving the helpfile and if someone has some ideas about security…

Re: Textpattern Blogmap - Test Release

[Just a note to everybody: Bastians site (The Blogmap) is only a testing site!]

Okay, i tested the plugin .. installing is really easy!

Now the problems:
  • i end up in Luxembourg even though i checked lati/longitude for cologne twice
<pre><code>here my deo datas for Cologne, Germany lat/lon 50.9333333,6.95 geotags geo:lat=50.9333333 geo:long=6.95 geourl < meta name=“ICBM” content=“50.9333333,6.95” > </code></pre>
  • i could register twice and that should not be the case in the final version, i think.
  • once your site is registered one can not apply an image? right?

[just a sitenote: could you apply a backlink from the registe page to the blogmap?]

Other than that: Great work :)

Re: Textpattern Blogmap - Test Release

I have tested the plugin and had similar problems re long/lat
I have registered twice and that counted 2 sites as opposed to one. I guess the final version will be able to recognise urls and update their location accordingly.

Re: Textpattern Blogmap - Test Release

The “Luxemburg” problem is now clear. I set db for lat and lon to “varchr”. Everything after the comma is gone.

I tried to register twice, but i faild. “Data has been updated” the script prompt to me.

> once your site is registered one can not apply an image? right?
No, you can add an image later to your rdf by editing the plugins prefs.
Right now update and register is located in the same function.

Should that be split in final?
It´s a power of ping xml, that it can be updated decentral.

@Nils Sorry you are located in afrika
You saved
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Braunschweig+Germany&spn=0.023403,0.086187&t=k&hl=en
to gmap Link. Please save a link like
http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=52.283282,10.502930&spn=0.648072,2.630127&hl=en
The ll are the coordinates and the are needed.
I dont know that google maps also querys q=Braunschweig+Germany.
I will include som regex to make sure, that only good gmap links can bee saved

Re: Textpattern Blogmap - Test Release

Okay, I added myself and went to look but had the latitude slightly out. I adjusted the latitude a couple of times so the the pointer actually points to our house instead of a drain cover out in the street. I now have a total of 5 pins on the map! Could it be set so that if you change the details a little, it will overwrite the old ones rather than adding another entry?

Bastian, could you please go in and delete the 4 most Northern entries for Boogenstein.com? You could even delete all of them and I will just re-ping now that I know where I am! I think I am doing slightly better than nilshoerrmann.de which appears to be located in the Mid-Atlantic region of Germany!

I would vote for splitting it up in the final.
