Subject: [OpenGuides-Dev] NEW FEATURE: Category and Locale maps
I am pleased to announce that we have a new feature on the Open Guide to
London: category and locale maps.
In the navigation of every locale page and category page, you will now
see a link to "Map of geocoded pages in this [locale/category]". This will
take you to a Flash map showing all nodes in that locale that have a
latitude and longitude in their metadata. My thanks to Mikel Maron for
, and the worldKit that powers it, which allows
us to do this.
Very cool :))
I've found a URL munging bug at our end. Currently, the code does not handle
categories and locales which contain spaces. At present, the URL gets the
spaces turned into underscores, which doesn't work with action=index.
Turning the spaces to %20 or '+' works - you get the chance to do this in
the mapufacture page.
