    is it possible to use the event locations search feature to control an entire buddy press site. as in when someone chooses a country/region from a list they will only be presented with events and members from that country/region... how hard would this be to implement?

    basically at the top of my site i would like a dropdown showing countries/regions then when someone clicks thier region it will only show them content (members, activity, events) from that region on both buddypress and events manager.

    perhaps theres another plugin that can do the buddypress side of content but how would i integrate events manager content into that?

    of course the search feature on events manager would then only require a dropdown for city/town to narrow search further...

    kind of get my idea?

    Couldn't this be done using category, or a tags. I don't know enough php/html to write this but what if the values of the drop down is the same name as your categories.

    Using php you could call the value selected in the drop down and assign it as a variable and then limit the posts on the page by that variable.

    $CAT = the_dropdown_value;
    
        // Get the ID of a given category
        $category_id = get_cat_ID( $CAT );
    
    query_posts('cat=$category_id');
    while (have_posts()) : the_post();
    the_content();
    endwhile;

    As I said I am not a great coder as of yet so don't try this out. this post is to help agelonwl come up with a solution for you.

    actually yea sorry totally forgot about this thread in fairness the other thread started off differently asking about groups but seeing as that is a bad approach id like to stick with this thread instead.

    I cannot help you debug this if there are problems, but a user submitted this add-on which makes event listings location-aware, it uses the free geoip database from http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geolite

    I'd love to put this up somewhere soon once I have time to test it, let me know if it works for you!
