Searching Members Locations by Radius

Heads up! Want to allow your members to share their geolocation and display them on a map ?
To display your members locations on a map, all our themes are compatible with the BP Maps for Members plugin. If you haven’t already, we recommend that you install and setup BP Maps for Members first.

While BP Maps for Members allows you to display your members on a map according to their geolocation, you might also want to be able to search by radius to find members located within a certain distance around you. This article will show you where to find that setting in BP Maps for Members.
