Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_google_map - display articles on google maps

I’m trying to use the plugin to map location of places I’ve visited. Despite having different addresses for each article, the maps being generated are all of the same location—that is, the address associated with the first article.

Any ideas, anyone?

Yeah, i’m actually having the same issues. I think it has something to do with the looping of the articles and creation of ‘marker’ points. I’m gonna try hacking around with it today. I’ll let you know what i find.

MAN… I can’t seem to figure this thing out completely. I looks like the safe_rows() function is pulling ALL of the articles associated within a section rather than pulling the individual article data. ROB are you out there? Can you help us? Thanks. :)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_google_map - display articles on google maps

Rob Soule,
Are those articles all of the same category and section? It would be easier and better if that functionality were in the plugin, but as I recall there was something about the fact that it pulls all the articles into one map that are placed in the same section and have the same category. I haven’t started playing with it yet, but I should.

Let me know if I’m wrong : I’m not actually looking at the documentation at the moment, but I know I asked Rob (RSS) to make the plugin so that it could have multiple markers on one map. Perhaps he could throw in the option for a global id or something that would catch if the id were different each time to only take one address for the marker?

Matt, you’re right. The documentation does say that it puts multiple markers on the map, i’m slow. :)

I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT. I hacked around and got it so it’s pulling only the data from the current article displaying. So you get ONE marker per article. Check out the link below to get the updated PHP.

WAHOO! Victory!

What i also found helpful is this plugin that allows you to check and see if there is data in, lets say, the custom address field and allows you to display the map if there is.

Good luck all!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_google_map - display articles on google maps

I just updated that page again. I fixed a small display wrapping glitch with the popup box and also some breaking issues with the city, state and zip.

The more i get figure out about this Google map API the more i’m loving it!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_google_map - display articles on google maps

Cap Nemo,
I would be interested in your fix for the display issue and the IE fix (if indeed you decided that was necessary), but I require the original capabilities of the plugin to display multiple markers within a single map. Can you share some of the necessary changes bro?

Thanks man,

Matthew

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_google_map - display articles on google maps

I wanted to edit the plugin code, but when I try to save any edits I get the a 503 error? What the?

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

This is the only plugin it does this with, and I’ve tried it on two separate sites and it does it on both. Has anyone else had this issue?

I would like to implement some changes to the plugin, unless Rob does it first, but I think he’s busy :) (the theme looks great by the way Rob, well done).

Any ideas peeps?

Matthew
