Our Locations Plugin allows you to associate geolocations with Discourse topics. You can read all about that plugin in #discourse:locations. If you have both our Locations Plugin and our Layouts Plugin installed, you’ll also get a new Map Widget you can use in your sidebar(s)!
The Locations plugin includes a few settings relevant to this widget
location layouts map search enabled
This will enable a small search input that allows a user to search through the locations on the map.
location layouts map show avatar
This will display the current user’s avatar in the top left hand corner of the map
The Map Widget hasn’t been updated in some time, so if you’re using it and would like some UI improvments or style tweaks, we’re quite open to requests or suggestions in that regard.
