Show your Jomsocial users on the map (Pro feature)

Starting with Hotspots 3.6 you are now able to show your jomsocial users on the hotspots map. To make use of this feature you need to navigate to Extensions -> Plugin Manager -> find the Community - Hotspots plugin. You'll need to configure it first, before you enable it. Here is an explanation of the different plugin parameters.

Category

Select the Hotspots category where your user profiles should be added. (It is a good idea to create a new category that will hold only the Jomsocial users)

Link to

Determines whether the read more button on each hotspot should lead to the Jomsocial profile, or if it should open the single view for the hotspot.

[Note]Note

If you select Jomsocial, then you would need to enable the Hotspots Links - Jomsocial plugin.

Hotspot name

This is the title of the Hotspot. {name} is a placeholder for the user's name. You can use any of the CUser object properties as placeholder.

Description

This is the description of the hotspot. You can use any of the CUser object properties as placeholder.

[Note]Note

User <hr id="system-readmore" /> if you want to have intro text and full text for the hotspot.

Address

This is the street address field in Jomsocial. Normally FIELD_ADDRESS

City

This is the city field in Jomsocial. Normally FIELD_CITY.

State

This is the state field in Jomsocial. Normally FIELD_STATE.

Zip code

This is the zip code field in Jomsocial. The default Jomsocial installations don't have a ZIP code field, but if you create one you can enter its unique title here.

Country

This is the country field in Jomsocial. Normally FIELD_COUNTRY

Custom fields mapping

Here you can define a mapping between the hotspots custom fields and the jomsocial custom field. Syntax is as follow:

CUSTOM_FILELD_HOTSPOT=CUSTOM_FIELD_JOMSOCIAL
CUSTOM_FIELD_HOTSPOT1=CUSTOM_FIELD_JOMSOCIAL1

Once you've configured and enabled the plugin whenever a new user registers or updates his profile the Hotspots entry for this user will update as well.

[Note]Note

If you want to link to the Jomsocial profile you'll need to enable the Hotspots Links - Jomsocial plugin as well.
