Comment to Locations Map
  • Now that UNA 11 is here, what, if anything, has actually changed regarding this Locations Map module? Specifically, is this statement from a year ago still valid? 

     "But the Location field on your forms still relies on Google's services, i.e. you must configure your Google API keys in order for that field to work properly."

    Can older UNA site users now edit their profiles and have a Location field which this module can display onto the map? Or should the data from UNA 10 work - that is, display on the map. 

    The reason I ask is because nothing shows up on the map... 

    • The Locations Map module shows only what is already stored in a DB. If nothing shows then this means that there is nothing in a DB, i.e. locations aren't set for any type of content. 

      A content entry must somehow get its location defined. In UNA 11 out of the box this is being done using the Location field which relies on Google places API. 

      If you for some reason can't use Google services then there is an alternative: Location Picker module which provides an interactive map in place of a Google driven location field on all content add/edit forms.
