BP Checkins is a plugin that uses HTML5 Geolocation API to publish checkins or places in a BuddyPress powered website.

In activity Component :

A location marker in the top right of the activity status box will show. On click, the browser will prompt the user for permission before detecting and braodcasting the location. Once the check-in is posted to the activity stream, it will have its own permalink. On click, it will position the user on a map. Members can also visit each other’s profiles to see a map of the user’s checkins at the top of the page. Many thanks to Sarah Gooding for her article on it on wpmu.org

New since version 1.0 :

The superadmin can now activate a new checkins / places area where users will be able :

  • to share their checkins and attach photos to it.
  • to share places.
  • import if they wish to their foursquare checkins.

This plugin is available in english, french and thanks to @seluvega in spanish.

NB : make sure to activate the plugin in the network admin if you run a multisite WordPress
