Wondering when the maps module will come out of "preview" or if anyone has done this for the community. We are moving from developing on the WP platform and seeing quick progress with plug ins. I create a number of sites for churches and it is great to have a google maps mashup, within a branded page to show their small/home groups, which can be changed by simply adding or deleting addresses within the cms - opposed to integrating a third party solution. And, for what I need, the current make-shift forums approach is not useable, the site administrator needs to simply maintain the addresses in the cms and they show on an mashup map.

Thoughts, Ideas ? In need of a solution now. Thanks

Hi BigB,

Your best bet is probably to look at how the Forum map system was created - it basically passes the "ForumMember" objects to a GMap object.

You could build another data type, such as a subclass of Page, to store your point information, and then pass that to GMap instead. Use the ForumMemberMapPage class as a model.

Although the code isn't available out of the box, it should be a relatively straightforward exercise for a developer familiar with creating custom page types.
