    Hi,

    I am using buddypress with the Buddyboss Blog Module which lets users enter blogs from the front end in a nice and easy way.

    How do I include a location-picker function as part of the blog-creation process such that the location ends up in the database?

    I found the “update database function” but i did not find a “location-picker” that I can include in the template to let the user set the location in the first place.

    Excuse me, this appears to me a very basic question and it must have been asked before a million times, but I did not find anthing that helped. What’s the easiest way to solve this?

    Thank you
    j.

    Hi,

    long time no answer 🙁

    In the meantime, I saw the gravity forms demo. Does it make sense to use gravityforms to insert a location-picker into the front-end template ?

    How far away “roughly” is version 3.0 ? I read that it would contain a front-end location picker. If that’s not too far away, i’d rather use that than adding the additional complexity of gravity forms to my site ….

    Hello J and apologies for missing out your posts.

    there is no simple solution that I can provide you with. This requires a custom script to be written.

    Well, it is really depend on your needs. With Gravity Forms plugin you can create posts from the front-end. And using Gravity Forms Geolocation add-on together with Gravity Forms plugin you can add maps, address fields, auto-locators, address autocomplete and more, to make it easy for the user to pick a location. And this location you can save in database.

    IT is, unfortunately, still far. My initial plan was to have version 3.0 ready months ago. However, I had to pause the development due to some personal matters. I am planning to continue the development in a few weeks and hopefully it won’t be too much longer to accomplish.

    let me know if you have any other questions.

    regards,
