Add a map to your profile page and distance from you in the directory

When new Montanans register for Montana Gun Trader, they are asked to include their City + a comma + MT.

If they don’t at least give us a Montana City, their membership is not approved.

Montana is Big! This is so we know if they post an item in a general forum, whether its even practical to contact them or not. On top of that one of the biggest complaints people have with classifieds is that people who post forget to add their location. You can visit any members profile page to see their location under their header image if they haven’t removed it. But sometimes even I don’t know without looking at a map. This is exactly why I’ve added a map function. Why not have a map here instead of having to google it?

If you edit your profile and enter your Montana city, then a comma, The MT, then enter USA in the country, a map will automatically appear on your profile page like the Montana Arms & Ammo Page. If your profile location information is also filled out correctly, you will see a distance from you in the member directory just like the image below.

NOTE: Add it, remove it, I don’t even care after registration. But it will always be required in registration for localization purposes. !If you add your complete address, it will display it! Although I might advise against that if you don’t want people knocking on your door. If you have a business however, it might be beneficial. We’ll leave that part up to you. 🙂
