Hey mojoPortal friends, I'll be on vacation all next week (feb 9-16, 2008) so probably won't be answering forums posts until I get back.
For the last 3 years I've spent my vacation time working on mojoPortal. Yep, I know "get a life" right? ;-) I haven't been on a real vacation or been to the ocean in about 15 years or so, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm such a workaholic I would probably never have orchestrated a vacation myself, but my Uncle has a time share in Cancun and through a happy conspiracy with my Father, my 2 brothers and I and my Father are all going on this trip along with several other relatives.
Lots of exciting things going on with mojoPortal but I'm going to try and not think about any of it until I get back.
Recently someone was asking in the forums about adding google maps to the blog. I thought about it and decided to go ahead and add a field for that while I was in there doing some other db work. Its not often that I would make a post where a map would be desirable but I went ahead and deployed it on this site so I could use it for this post and show a map of Cancun. I just implemented it this morning so it will be in svn trunk tonight for anyone eager to have it. I also added a place in Site Settings for the google map api key so it can be used easily in multi site installations. I also added it to the Event Calendar feature so if you enter a location for the event it will show a map on the event detail page.
