    I have just added an address to my "Membercard" here at XenForo for testing.

    Please click on the address mentioned at my Membercard which links to Google-Map.


    You will notice that it does not show the address nor the location at Google-Maps.
    It shows the map of the USA when clicking the link.


    Was there a recent change in Google-Maps which is not reflected in XF ?

    It worked for me when I clicked on it on my Nexus 7 tablet.

    did it actually show the specific location immediately on the map or did you have to click the "address suggestion" which Google is displaying in their map-searchbox ?

    I had to click the suggestion.

    I had two suggestions which were very similar.

    Ah, yeah, same for me. Just thought the first one was relevant.

    This seems to be a bug.

    It works fine with my location if you bring up my member card. It also works with many others' locations.

    Edit:

    Tested this with the location in my membercard on my site. Worked as expected, showed the correct location on Google Maps and no suggesions either.

    I have seen this bug on several instances.

    1)
    it works fine when you just enter a "City name" and a "Country name", e.g.:

    Berlin, Germany


    2)
    it does NOT work correctly when you enter a "Street Name", e.g.: something like this:

    Messedamm 22, 14055 Berlin, Germany
    Messedamm 22, Berlin, Germany




    Is there a way to fix this ?

    Maybe move this thread into bugs, so @Mike can have a look.



    Many thanks!

    It's just a link to Google Maps with the value pre-entered. How Google handles it is entirely up to them.

    If I recall correctly the value needs to comply to standards.
