BP xProfile Location

Description

This is a BuddyPress plugin that creates an xProfile Location field type that will use the Google Places API to populate and validate the address fields.

The result will be uniform and searchable addresses with a single input field.

You can create multiple Location fields via wp-admin > Users > Profile Fields > Add New Field

The xprofile field for each member will be populated as a searchable string.

A latitude / longitude ‘geocode’ will be saved as a separate field, if that option was selected when the field was created.

You can then use the geocode in your preferred Member Map solution.

Great plugin! Works quite well. However on pages that aren't using a google map, they are slowed down. The script is qued on ALL pages, but if I don't have a mymap div on that page, it throws a JS error - and it seems to be really bad on mobile. message : "myMap is not a function" name : "InvalidValueError" stack : "Error↵ at new Eb (https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:41:365)↵ at Object._.Fb (https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:41:475)↵ at Og (https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:96:420)↵ at https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:131:58↵ at Object.google.maps.Load (https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:21:5)↵ at https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:130:20↵ at https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEbNrty2LK5O2DbsjKx1cJd4OsPqIVXjE&libraries=places&callback=myMap:131:73" __proto__ : Error
