How it works

The “location” attribute in the user’s profile is automatically transformed in its corresponding coordinates, and then registered in a specific utility.

The Plone registry contains keys to manage the title and description showing on the map, and the list of user’s attributes to show in the map in the specified order.

How to use the map

This package provides both a browser view at http://localhost:8080/Plone/@@usersmap_view.


Also this package provides a portlet named usersmap portlet.



A browser view at http://localhost:8080/Plone/@@usersmap_reindex is provided to let the admin reindex all the users’ locations in case of any misalignment.

Optionally, you can define a crontab job to eventually run the update of users index.

Known bugs

You can set just one usersmap portlet per page.
