Member Location 1.2.3


   (6 reviews)

6 Screenshots

This plugin allows members to specify their physical location (accurate to the nearest town or city) and allows other members to search for members based on the location.


  • Users can specify their location when registering or editing their profile. In the AdminCP you can set if the location is required in either or both of these locations. When entering a location, autocomplete is provided which automatically detects the user's physical location (based on their IP address) to find towns close by.
  • Location shows on user's profile and when viewing the member list. If you have specified a location yourself, it will also show the distance between you and that member on the member list.
  • When searching the member list, you can search for users within a certain distance (in miles or km, configurable from AdminCP setting) of a particular town or city and sort by distance from that place.
  • When searching the member list, you can also sort results by distance from you without specifying a location.
  • When viewing the member list, a quick "Members near me" link shows which will quickly filter the list to users close to your location and sort by distance.

Works great with Enhanced Member List

We have emailed for support but have not had a reply.

There is a bug according to invision support which you need to fix.

We are trying to move a member from basic members to moderators but get an error.

Invision support say this is due to your plugin as per this reply

I believe this particular issue will be being caused by a plugin named "member location". If you disable this, it will resolve the problem for you.

Can you please get this fixed.

This is an excellent plugin and works as it says. Excellent support by the developer!

NOTE: Besides enabling the 4 default APIs as mentioned in IPS Docs tutorial, you have to enable an additional (i.e. the 5th) API named Google Places API Web Service to allow the plugin to work. Hope so, the developer would include this in plugin description or release the updated version soon.

OUTSTANDING!!! This has to be one of the most under rated plugins available in the market place. Let me tell you this is a MUST HAVE. It simply works and it really adds a neat dynamic to your forum. I think this should be stock and replace the location box that is included with IPS already.  The location box that ships with the regular IPS software is just a plain text box. Users can write whatever they want there. This mod provides a TRUE location box that is very powerful. Really DO get this, it will be worth every penny. It's priced very well at that. BTW for those worried the issues mentioned in the other review have been corrected.  FIVE start, great service, great support. Amazing plugin.

Use the enhanced member list with this plugin for full benefit.

Thank you Boris!!

This would be even better if there was a setting to show member's location (text) within the user pane inside forums posts under the user info pane
