Detecting the origin and displaying map location based on the origin


#1

We can use REMOTE_ADDR to get about an 80% accurate result of the users location. Is there any reason we aren't doing this already?


I will look into building it into my deployment.



#2

No reason actually. Should be added to the feature list.


When you succeed building it into your deployment, will be cool to share it



#3

will do, give me a month or so



#4

BUMP - were you able to build this into your deployment?



#5

Any news on this feature? I really want it!
