Re: The Yabb World Usermap
Thomas .. Great Idea !!

   Could not find North America or United States from Location drop down window in Edit Account.
   After registering, My Account was displayed and I didn't fully understand that Edit Account would get me to the map ... which put the locater pin in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean ... , maybe the map should be zoomed out (as default view), so easier to see where locater pin is and where a user needs to slide it to .. if doesn't enter Long/Lat before hand.
  Maybe adding a user field for city & state or country (just for info display).
Also .. maybe a note above username field, to note that only alpha/numeric characters accepted (spaces etc. Not)

You mean the small or the big map ?
Ive changed the zoom factor for the big map on 3. For the small map is the easiest way is to type in your address in the search field to find the lat and lng automaticly.

Re: The Yabb World Usermap
also after click on Edit Account ... options are to cancel or edit account (which the latter actually Saves or Submits changes ... (maybe change button to state: Save or Submit

Also .. is there a way to go to (large map) to view world map to see pins of all or at least a really zoomed out map ?  Zooming out map in My Account, does not show other pins, but moves my pin across map.

oops .. also noticed Canada, England (or Great Britain), South America, Africa missing from drop down location selection

Thanks for your suggestions.  Smiley

A few notices.

After registration log in with your data and go to "edit account".

The map on the right side with the moveable pin is only to find your specially lat and lng values. It doesn't display the markers from other members ! The Markers from the other (all registred members) members was only displayed on the large map. That was it what i mean, the easiest way to find your correct location, type in your address in the search field, zoom into the map und place the marker exactly to your location (drag and drop).

For example click on my pin, change the map to satellite an zoom in as far is possible. you can see exactly where i live.

Then copy the lat and lng value to the fields with the same name on the left side fill out the other fields and ready. The marker now display your location in the small map (specially for you) and your location in the large map (for all).

Please notice the description:

Quote:
Find your geographic coordinates (longitude and latitude) by drag and drop on the desired point (zoom in for better results) or enter your address in the input field below. Then copy and paste the geographic coordinates in the input fields with the same name on the left side. Finished!


If you want to test the map or play with it log in with:
Username: tester
pass: tester

In the next days i will change a few things.

Canada, England (or Great Britain), South America, Africa missing

I know, the country list is not completed, but i don't know how to find a ready complete list on the web. I will add your suggestions manually.

   That was the problem ... once I registered and logged in, I did not know, I had to log out to see the Large Map again.

Like it, just needs that little bit of tweaking in the pull down list of countries.
