Locations Plugin

Ok. I’ll take a look next week.

In the meantime, this plugin doesn’t support the User Card Directory theme component.


Can anyone advise on how I can report on the location of community members location in topics.
I am setting up a support area and woupd like to understand what country the memebers are in that are requesting support.

Just a note that the FA icon map-o needs to be updated to use far-map in this plugin, sounds like we only have a few weeks before the old ones go away.


The user card overflow is still an issue at the moment too, if you’re doing any work on this component in the near future :blush:

Thanks for the prompts guys.

I’ve handled the deprecations

And the style issues of user locations in cards and profiles

@omarfilip I haven’t tested the user card directory with these updates, but they may address that as well.


Long addresses now wrap beautifully. thanks @angus :smiley:

Thanks, @angus. The update did not fix the double location. Here it is now:

I’ve also noticed long addresses overflow out of the side of the window when viewing a user profile page:



Thanks Richie, I’ve addressed that: Fix user profile location overflow · paviliondev/discourse-locations@e11bb2c · GitHub

@omarfilip This plugin will also now work with the user card theme component as well: Support user card directory · paviliondev/discourse-locations@931b609 · GitHub


Indeed it does - thanks, Angus!


Angus,I have some questions too.When I use it in my user card directory, the following happens.

I just installed the plugin, but it’s not showing up in the admin settings.

I’m using the current version of Discourse. Here’s the relevant portion of the app.yml file:

Thoughts on how to debug this? I haven’t worked on Discourse in a while, so I’m definitely rusty.

Just checking that after you changed app.yml you then rebuilt the Discourse docker image with ./launcher rebuild app from the base Discourse folder /var/discourse ?


I solved the problem. It was an embarrassing mistake. The change to app.yml was not in face saved.


Addressed it? Oh I see what you did there :rofl:

But in all seriousness, thanks @angus it wraps beautifully now:


I am very new with this technology. I have installed the plugin (I see the Map command in the hamburger menu and I have a location field in my User profile page (with working georeference with nominatim) BUT…

I don’t see “Add location” button in the editor.

This is my configuration:

And this is the editor window:

Finally, this is the way I have installed the plugin:

    - exec:
        cd: $home/plugins
          - git clone https://github.com/discourse/docker_manager.git
          - git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-math.git
          - git clone https://github.com/paviliondev/discourse-events.git
          - git clone https://github.com/paviliondev/discourse-locations.git
          - git clone https://github.com/davidtaylorhq/discourse-whos-online.git
          - git clone https://github.com/discourse/twitter-profile-link.git
          - git clone https://github.com/discourse/discourse-tooltips.git

I have tried with locale= en with the same results.

Well, well, correction: the plugin works as expected in the User Profile.

According to the map, I am a dead person since the map indicates a point in the middle of the largest Montreal graveyard:


It has to be enabled for each of the categories that you wish to use it also.


Thank you! It has worked.

By the way, the check mark was “on” by default BUT!! you have to show the setup panel, uncheck and recheck to have the feature actually works.


Glad you got it working. It’s been a while since I used the plugin so it was kinda my best guess.
