I have followed the standard Gmap module installation instructions and have managed to integrate a map page into my test site on http://login01.chilliifire.net/silverstripe/map/
The forum module on http://login01.chillifire.net/silverstripe/forums/ also seems to work just fine.
But when you try an register in that forum, the google integration with the user location does ot fire up; all I get is a select box. Consequently my map on http://login01.chilliifire.net/silverstripe/map/ remains empty. I must have run http://login01.chilliifire.net/silverstripe/db/build?flush=1 about a thousand times, still the integration between the forum module and gmap module does not appear to work.
What might I be doing wrong? Any hints welcome
PS: The forum is based on daily build of today, 20/09/2008, to fix a known error in that module with the current published version. Fix was applied based on the recommendation (to another forum member) of a Silverstripe member in this fourm.
