How about adding a setting in Studio, that makes everything related to "Relationships" go away? ...  no blocks, no visibility selector... nothing,

The feature simply isn't appropriate for all sites

    I'll start off by saying my US postal street address IS in Houston, Texas.  Google maps works properly with US postal addresses.

    OpenStreetMaps has a huge problem, in that if I use 'Houston' as my City, the API returns an 'address not found' error.  If I use the name of my neighborhood, the OpenStreetMaps API correctly find my location.  Why OpenStreetMaps decided to geocode addresses in this way, is anyone's guess. but it's flat-out wrong... at least for use in the United States.  If this error exists for my location in Houston, Texas, it surely exists for many other major metropolitan areas across the US.  Therefore, plain and simply, OpenStreetMaps is not a viable locations provider for US based addresses,  I can't speak to its viability for other areas of the globe.

    That leaves Google.  I hate Google.  I would sooner slam my head in a car door than count on Google for something.  What say you folks at Una, work on a Mapquest integration?  Andrew Boon

      As it is now, Spaces/Groups Snippet Meta Info has a single switch for 'Tags' which includes both hashtags and labels,   It would be better to have separate on/off switches for hashtags and labels.  The reason is that site administrators may want to restrict the display of tags meta info to only labels that were created by the admin, while not displaying hashtags from the 'Description field' that were created by members.  Currently, if you only want to display the Label info, you have to remove hashtags from the description field, but then you lose the benefit of hashtags. 

      The display of Tags in the meta info snippet doesn't need to change, but the ability to choose which to display would be an improvement.

      In spite of the 'Set Badges' item being enabled in studio, the Set Badges button does not appear on any Spaces or Groups menu.  Is this a bug, or am I overlooking something?

        • As I said in my original post, the menu items are activated in Studio, so it has to be something else.

          • LeonidS I dumped the sys_menu items database table, and found the following:

            (2304, 'bx_spaces_view_actions_all', 'bx_spaces', 'profile-set-badges', '_sys_menu_item_title_system_set_badges', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', 0, 192, 'a:2:{s:6:\"module\";s:9:\"bx_events\";s:6:\"method\";s:19:\"is_badges_avaliable\";}', '0', 1, 0, 1, 6),

            Once I changed bx_events to bx_spaces, everything worked OK

            Here's the SQL from /modules/boonex/spaces/install/sql/enable.sql  line 254 (line 257 on Github)

            ('bx_spaces_view_actions_all', 'bx_spaces', 'profile-set-badges', '_sys_menu_item_title_system_set_badges', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', 0, 192, 'a:2:{s:6:"module";s:9:"bx_events";s:6:"method";s:19:"is_badges_avaliable";}', 1, 0, 50),

            • Thank you for the report and the investigation:

              I'm not going to call this a request or suggestion until I get some feedback on the feasibility of it, 

              Currently, the available hierarchy is limited to verticle relationships, ie Parent > Child 

              My question is this:  Would it be feasible to add lateral hierarchy?  I don't know how many Una users would find this useful, but I have an application where a "Sibling" relationship would be useful.  The only requirement would be the establishment of the Sibling relationship, and the ability to display a Space's Siblings on a page, whenever those relationships exist,   I'm suggesting relationships only.., no complicated inter-woven privacy/permissions/visibility.  Everything between siblings remains isolated and independent, linked only by the sibling relationship.

              The parent-child relationship isn't always appropriate,  Sometimes you need lateral connections.

                • So if a parent space had 2 children spaces would that accomplish the need of having the two children related by having the same parent.  This is a brain tease.

                  I have not installed Spaces yet as I am trying to figure out the best way to implement it on my site

                  • In that scenario, the children automatically have a lateral relationship by having the same parents.  However, if you had spaces for the children's aunts and uncles, they could be shown as connected to the children's parents by a  sibling feature.  All the inter-relationships do get a bit complicated if you think too hard about them.  That's why I said that simply showing a connection is good enough.  In your example, it may be useful to show the connections of the children's aunts and uncles to the children's parents.  As in real-world scenarios, just because someone is your aunt or uncle, doesn't mean you have to automatically like them or share any of your private information with them.

                    • Could you please show it graphically (screenshot or diagram) ? it's not very obvious how you want it make to work
