Comment Geo Maps 0.2 Description
Description: The Comment Geo Maps WordPress plugin allows you to turn a post or a page into a geo-based issue map. This adds value to discussions about issues that are geographically located. All you need to do is create a prompt in the form of a blog post and then people post their comments. Each comment is geo-coded and becomes a point on the map. In this way, a geo-based discussion ensues and the map gets populated with data around a certain topic.
To install the plugin:
1. Unzip the plugin into the /wp-content/plugins directory on your webserver.
2. Activate the plugin.
3. Fill in the "Comment Geo Maps" settings page. Get a Google Maps API key here: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html
4. Copy cgm-comment.php to your theme directory.
5. Edit your theme to use cgm-comments.php. For an example of how to do this, see http://oss.openplans.org/commentgeomaps/wiki/CGMCommentsDiff
6. Edit cgm-comments.php as necessary to make it work with your theme.
Maps can be started as a post, to make it more time sensitive like in mapping participation at a city-wide event, or as a page, to make it more permanent like for mapping dangerous NYC intersections. The page format fills the whole page and the post format puts a map at the top of the regular list of comments.
You'll need to be relatively comfortable with php code to integrate this plugin into your WordPress theme.
