    Hi Brajesh,

    I don’t know if I asked but is it possible to add your Google maps plugin in to your buddy blog/BP Simple Front End Post plugins?,
    Basically just to give the post creator to add a map with some info on it in a post/page.
    Thanks
    Ben

    Hi Ben,
    It is doable but it will need a lot change.

    1. We need a way to store the google map API key as the key is required now.
    2. We have been exploring going with custom form element type vs using ACF support. We haven’t been able to spend on this much.

    If you want to do it for a site of yours, I can show it with some code. It is not difficult.
    Providing a solution for everyone is going to take time though.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Ben,
    please upgrade to Bp Simple Front End Post plugin version 1.3.1

    After that, Please install this plugin

    https://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-simple-front-end-post/

    Please make sure to chage the Google API Key
    https://github.com/buddydev/buddyblog-google-map-field/blob/master/bblog-google-map-field.php#L98

    It will allow searching for location and adding single location to the post. We store the location name as well as the longitude, latitude.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh,

    I would like to implement the map function as well to the single frontend post plugin.

    Do I just need to create a bblog-google-map-field.php and add the code from the Github link you have provided and save the .php file under wp-content/plugins/simple-front-end-post/ in order to make it work?

    Thanks for your info.

    Kind regards,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,
    Please download the plugin from here.
    https://github.com/buddydev/buddyblog-google-map-field

    and change the api Key as mentioned earlier. After that, you just need to activate this plugin and It will add the map field.

    Regards
    Brajesh
