Geommunity Suite documentation
Extensions we provide in the Geommunity suite can seem complicated as they offer a large amount of options but it is acutually very easy to understand and use:
1. First you need your users to have coordinates! They can get theirs from quite a few ways:
- Install the Geommunity Locator plugin to let users manually point their location on map on their profile, or to use the guess feature to be located from their approximative browser location
- Geocoded from address fields (Builtin Jomsocial feature or with our free Geommunity Geocoder for Community Builder).
- Optionnaly if you have a large existing community with filled in address fields, you can use our Batch geocoder addon (Back end module) that will batch geocode all your users from their address fields
2. Then install the Geommunity module to render every located user on a global map of your community Members!
You're done! These were the basic steps! Remember every fields in each extension back end have documentation and important recommendations on Tooltips when rolling over the field title. Don't miss these!
