Well, I'm all set up now, and I'm now moving on to my list of things to get creative with as far as Shareabouts goes. And tops on the list is this:
I'd love to be able to create an interactive legend in place of the ticker -- a legend that not only shows what the various icons on the map mean, but one where you can click a checkbox next to each icon in the legend and hide or show all the places of that type on the map. And eventually -- since my project uses a dozen or so place types -- I'd plan to add "select all" and "select none" buttons above the legend that would select or deselect all of these checkboxes with one click.
I've been digging around in the files trying to figure out how I might do this, but I thought maybe one of you would at least have suggestions on where I should be looking, or how such a feature would fit into the Shareabouts architecture?
In fact, it appears there may be a built-in way to create a static legend in Shareabouts already? If that's the case, I'd love to know where to look for that as well.
Of course, I'll share any code I write back with the project.
Thanks, as always. My site, if you're curious, is in its current form here: http://ciity.org
