Geo location People Nearby feature
« on: April 23, 2014, 11:33:44 AM »
Dear Friends,

Is there any feature in osDate based on Geo location (People Nearby feature).
This is the most common feature these days in dating websites.

Please let me know friends if this is possible in osDate ??

It's already built in and works pretty good but hard to test since all profiles the install generated and profiles you add all come from your ip so even if you are in the US and a members profile says they are in the UK their ip says they are near you.

Yes I saw that already in default files, but if you see Badoo.com you will see a feature called People Nearby button when we click on that it shows the people online around us.
I can see its almost 50% already build in osDate but need to improve it more and make it similar same as other big dating sites. There should be a button on the homepage where users can click on it and it will only load the profiles which are around us :)

It's 99% their. All you have to do is create a button, make a page and do a inlude for the tpl file and at the end put in the number of profiles you want to pull 

Nice idea! This is why it's nice to get new members in to get new ideas.

Thanks.

Very true scvoyager, yes I was also thinking I can make easily a button for this. But I am just in a testing mod right now.
I am glad you liked my idea and hope you will try to use it too.

I have more ideas and would love to share with everyone and get help when I need.

this feature is based on IP. So when I check it at home for me it shows people that live in Germany instead of Netherlands. And when I am 8 miles from home and login on friends computer it shows profiles near Denmark. So if you use it be aware that it is not very accurate.
Kind regards,

Will be testing for Osdater.

I mean instead of IP address they are accessing, Can't we keep the tracking or Tracing of their cell / mobile phones on larger exent so that exact location cannot be determined [ Privary etc ]  however nearness can be tracked....   Please can someone recommend any good PHP script for this... or any API etc.

Even if it IP based, then how can we improve it for 100% accuracy... I see that my location is bangalore [ India] however it shows many time some other locaiton like Delhi, Pune [ India ] which is not correct.

I am aware that we are using Maxmind Database  but it has to be 99.99 correct so that profiles get benefits from our website...

Any  pointer or hint will be much appreciated...
