[resolved] feature request: Please do not display 'Map Unavailable' in the event details (4 posts)

    Whenever an event has an unspecified location, the phrase "Map Unavailable" is displayed on the event's details page. This is somewhat misleading as it indicates IMHO a technical issue with the map provider.

    This all corresponds with the setting "This event does not have a physical location" which has completely different semantics.

    I would like the plug-in to be more specific about the location:
    a) "This event does not have a physical location",
    for example for a webinar or the like

    b) "The location will be announced later/in due time"
    when the location is not yet fixed

    c) "Map unavailable"
    when the location is made-up/cannot be located (e.g. 'on the moon')

    thanks, we will look into this. However, maybe you can look into template file at templates/placeholders/locationmap.php

    one thing you can do is use conditional placeholders in your formats, e.g.

    {has_location}#_MAP{/has_location}{no_location}No Location{/no_location}
