Location format for member map

Question

Hi,

 

trying to add my location to the member map for some time now, no success.

I used different formats for the „location“ field in my profile: full address, only city/country, GPS coordinates - but nothing will lead to a pin in the member map.

I also do not see the small map in my profile

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

regards

Michael

It seems the Location field in your profile is not related to the member map. Instead you need to visit this page and use My Location -> Update Location.

Hi carlsson,

thanks for taking the time.

either I am completely blind or there is some issue: I simply do not see any item/menu/link etc. called "My Location -> Update Location"

Not on the map, or above, below left or right. 

Clicking on the map (left/right, single/double) only zooms in or centers the map

Working with MacOS - tried with Safari and Chrome

Also powered up my "spare win10 machine with Internet explorer" - same

 

Would be thankful for any ideas - sure the problem is on my side ;-)

 

regards

Michael

How curious, this is how it looks for me (Firefox on Windows 7). Perhaps the orange button only shows for those who already filled in their location, or you're running a different theme where it doesn't show?

 

Edit: Nope, the button displays for me in all four themes.

Unfortunately not visible on my side. I tried all Themes. Even with my company laptop (win7 with Firefox) it is the same.

 

ok, I can live without seeing myself on the map - I know where I live ;-)

 

thanks for your effort

Ok, I found one more possible link. In my case I have the option to edit my existing marker in the upper right corner, not sure if you would have an option to add a new marker. I tried to navigate to what would be your marker page if one existed, but it gave me error code 2MM1/1 whatever it means.

Well, this brings me to the list of members having a marker set.

I can access this by the „Browse Markers“ Link, which is existing on my screen.

in your Screenshot, right of this „Browse Markers“ link was the „My Location Link“ in orange, which is missing on my side.

Ok, I suppose us mortals have reached end of the road and would need to call in some admin with time to spare to explain which the differences are. At one point I thought it was limited to a certain number of posts but I saw members from before with far fewer posts who once were able to add their location to the map.

I also thought that only subscribers are allowed to mark their position, so I did what I planned to do anyway: bought a one year subscription.

but this also did not make the trick

I think I will create an „issue“ via the system and describe the problem.

 

thanks again
