Center the map on any reference point03 Jun 2014
So there is a lot of information hidden on the map at php.ug.
There are three different layers hidden in the select-field on the lower left corner. It allows you to see
- all the PHP-Usergroups currently registered for the map
- all events that are marked as upcomming on joind.in and
- all the people currently taking aprentices or seeking mentors that are listed at phpmentoring.org.
But that’s rather a lot of stuff on the map. And perhaps you want to directly link to your entry.
Here is how you do it.
You did provide a shortname for your usergroup when you promoted it. You can use
that shortname to center the map to your groups location by calling
http://php.ug?center=<yourShortName>. Easy as that.
Your event has an ID on joind.in which is used for identifying your event. So all
you have to do is call
and you are ready to go.
You had to provide a github-account when you registered to PHPMentoring. (By the way: the
location you provided there is what we take to get your geographic position. So
if you fell you are in the wrong place, consider changing that location) That
github-account can be used to center the map around your area. So you’ll have to
http://php.ug/center=<YourGithubAccount>#phpmentoring to get your
part of the map.
