I'm getting emails about your map location being in the wrong part of the world and it seems there is some confusion how to fix that so here's a tutorial.

The system will not do this automatically when putting your location in your profile, the map is a separate setting all together.

Your default location on the map is set to somewhere in France. Here are the steps you must take to set your correct location and display a pointer.

1. Go into your User Control Panel

Here you see all your personal account settings for various features of the forums,
click on "Shmoogle Map Profile"
Attachment:

A new window opens. This is where you will be changing your personal map settings and location.
(Click on the picture for a larger image)

In this test account that's displaying you can see the default location pointer is somewhere South of France.
Your's will be somewhere similar the first time you visit these settings:

To fix this, you need to enter your location in the "Set your location" line.
Your zip code is all that's needed to place your pointer close to home but you can enter your full address if you like.

I put in the address of a school I used to work at:

After clicking on "Find It" my pointer is moved to that location and no longer in France:

All that's left is to tick "Yes" on "Show my marker on the Shmoogle map:" and make sure to click submit to save the changes.

You can also change your pointer style and enter a comment that other members will see on the map under "Tab 2"

That's all there is to it!
Now when you go to the map your CGW member name will appear in the right column at top of the list with other members below you.

The default map size is zoomed way out because there are members from all over the world on it.
To see your location closer, you can move the map slider to + or double click in any area to zoom in closer.
You can also zoom in on your location or any other member location by clicking on their name in the list of "Mapped Users".

That's it, enjoy!

I think the program is working, (I just moved myself to California and back.) Every step must be followed and most of these forum mods do not come with a users manual! :Awe:

Things I suspect are being missed,

"Find it!" after typing the address

"Yes" on show me on the map

"Submit" at the bottom of the screen

Computer programs are unforgiving. Every step MUST be followed.
