    when i click icon "checkin" in my site i see notifiacation "OOps, we could not localized you, you can search for your address in the field that received the focus." In my computer all work OK.

    second problem.
    I try connect this plugin with Foursquare. I created Api, but when i try connect with foursquare from my site (checkin settings) i see notification in foursquare site:

    "This app has a configuration problem and was unable to connect to your Foursquare account.
    Cause of error: Callback uri is not valid for this consumer".

    I don't know why. Please help.

    1/ You must allow the website to get your position, if you don't allow it ( your browser is asking you if you authorize the site to get your position ) then, the script cannot localize you and you need to use the text field to fill and address.

    2/ I've double checked, although the link to the Foursquare developer API has changed and my plugin still link to the old one (now it's foursquare.com/developers/apps). The foursquare feature of the plugin is working. In the callback uri you must fill the url to the main bp checkins page.

    See this image http://flic.kr/p/gEbeaJ for an example of callback/redirect URI.
