GeoMint 0.5 for Mint 2

I had incomplete datasets enabled, I’ve changed the setting to showing only complete datasets. Just so I understand this properly…one visiter came from somewhere in Spain — this much was recorded in the Country Data pane — but this visit was not logged in the Last Visitors pane and was not marked in the Map pane. Had the IP address been mapped to a particular city, than the Map and Last Visitors pane would have showed the data?

If that is so, I can understand why the Map doesn’t show the listing, but the Last Visits pane, why wouldn’t that visit show up in the Location column? I mean instead of listing, say, Winesburg, Oho / United States have the Last Visitors pane simply show Spain as the location?

I’m sure there is a reason behind this, just curious what it might be.

Will see what differences occur with Incomplete Datasets disabled. With it off, will the only visits tracked in your pepper be ones which have enough data to display in each of the three panes.

Yes

…have the Last Visitors pane simply show Spain as the location?

That’s what the ‘Show incomplete datasets’ option does.

GeoMint tracks every visit, the option is determines which hits will be displayed.

So, again, just to make sure I understand: the visit from a Spanish IP should have shown on both the Last Visitors and County Data panes, even though I had incomplete datasets enabled, but not on the map because there was no city data on the particular IP?

If that is the case, the Spain visit showed only on Country Data, but not on Last Visitors.

Okay, before I go on here, could you please give me the link to your mint install and set it to client mode (you can send me an email, contact details on my website). Thanks.

Hi-

I’ve got the latest geomint and crush peppers, but my installation only shows IP addresses by number rather than name. Any ideas? Unlike some other problems, the map works fine…

Could you post a screenshot or give me the url to your mint installation?

Well, it looks like this (except for the bad formatting):

 IP                  Location      When
 82.69.77.192      Sheffield, UNITED KINGDOM    1 hour ago
 83.35.3.121        Barcelona, SPAIN    1 hour ago 
 217.43.148.91    London, UNITED KINGDOM    2 hours ago
 82.66.53.114     FRANCE3 hours ago
 216.99.215.229 Portland, OR,UNITED STATES  3 hours ago
 60.184.18.20     CHINA 3 hours ago
 84.94.112.25     Tel Aviv,ISRAEL   4 hours ago
 128.187.0.178   Provo, UT,UNITED STATES    6 hours ago
 67.101.36.183   Berkeley, CA,UNITED STATES 7 hours ago

I do have crushes installed and these addresses do show up correctly translated. For what it’s worth, I’ve also got ‘Locations’ installed.

Also, I think these are the same addresses displayed whether I ask for complete or incomplete records.

(Let me know if you want an actual screenshot).

But actually it’s worse than that, now — every so often the pane completely disappears, although it still shows up as installed. If I uninstall and reinstall it shows up again. But this is definitely intermittent (and was similar to a problem with the Trends pepper).

An important amendment to the last bit:

Actually there’s another, I think unrelated, problem cropping up, which is that some peppers are showing up as installed but their panes aren’t showing either in the drag’n’drop list or the actual page. This happens intermittently with GeoMint and with Trends. Any ideas????

(That is, right now GeoMint seems OK, but Trends has disappeared!)

I can’t see anything wrong. 82.69.77.192 Sheffield, UNITED KINGDOM 1 hour ago is a complete record, e.g., 60.184.18.20 CHINA 3 hours ago is an incomplete one (not that there’s no city).

About the non-display issue: I can’t say anything about it, nobody else has these problems and I don’t have any information about your Mint install.

Sorry, maybe I misunderstood. Isn’t 82.69.77.192 supposed to show up as its hostname, 82-69-77-192.dsl.in-addr.zen.co.uk here, at least when the Secret Crush pepper is present (isn’t that what XXX used to do?)?

That was the purpose of the XXX pepper, yes. However, Secret Crush Pepper gets the hostname dynamically so it doesn’t store it somewhere which makes the whole thing a bit, well, slow, so GeoMint doesn’t query for the hostname at the moment (however, I will add an extra option in a future version).

Ah sorry! I did misunderstand. (And I think the disappearing-panes problems had to do with permissions.) So everything’s working — sorry to bother you!

No problem, you’re welcome.

Hello,

I found what seems to be a strange conflict between User Agent 007 2.0 and GeoMint 0.53. I’m running the latest Mint 2.02.

For some reason when I first installed GeoMint 0.53, User Agent 007 2.0 would not show on “View Mint” or in the “Pane Order” section of the settings. I was able to see and change settings for each pepper though. I was able to get the “missing” User Agent 007 2.0 pepper to display again by uninstalling and reinstalling it, but then GeoMint 0.53 would disappear.

I was able to fix the issue by uninstalling both at the same time and reinstalling them both one after the other. I thought I’d report it though incase it’s something that needs to be fixed in the code.

I too have the problem where the map size must be set in pixels. Setting it as a percentage results in no map, which is a shame as the pepper obviously resizes itself with the size of the window, sometimes resulting in scrollbars or wasted space if the map is set to a fixed px size.

I also have a small aesthetic issue where the green subtitle bar does not reach all the way across the pepper as it should. It seems to be as wide as the text on it plus about 12px of right padding. The text is also misaligned. It should be a few pixels in from the left, not flush with the left edge of the bar. This has been an issue since the days of Mint 1. It’s only a small thing I know, but it’s the only pepper I know of that looks awkward because of it.

My setup: Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) | MacOS 10.4.8 | Mint 2.02 | GeoMint 0.53

Here is a picture of my GeoMint showing the problem:

NetworkShadow, I had a similar problem, and (I think) it turned out to be related to permissions. The simple answer is to make sure that all the files (including the directories themselves) under mint/pepper/ have permissions 755 [-rwxr-xr-x]. (Although it’s probably the case that not all files need exactly these, but I don’t think there’s any harm)

Ozzpot, I don’t have a Mac so I can’t test GeoMint with Safari. However, at least the ‘aesthetic issue’ has nothing to do with GeoMint, I’m using the default Mint css classes. About the map problem, have you tried setting a 99% value (you really need to enter ‘99%’ in the box)?

Okay, that’s weird about the CSS. Safari handles CSS better than most browsers, so I’m surprised it does this.

Anyway, about the map size issue - I should clarify it doesn’t work with any percentage figure, not 100%, not 99%, not 50, 30, 10, or any other percentage. And yes, I always put the percentage symbol on it. It always looks exactly the same - like this:

GeoMint Anomaly 2

Weird huh? Peppers must use percentages quite a lot I would imagine. Seems to be just the map that can’t handle it.

Thanks for the screenshot, but I honestly don’t have a clue (and no Mac so I can’t play around with it).

I think this may have already been addressed, but I’m still unsure how to go about fixing it. Sorry if this is repeating anything.

If I’m understanding this all correctly, Crushes and Geo Mint work out of the same information. Sadly though, Crushes is displaying my recent hits while Geo Mint ignores them and uses old data (from xxxstrongmint maybe? I uninstalled that after upgrading.) http://fadelight.com/mint

Any suggestions? I’ve been considering scrapping the databases and installation and starting over anew, but I don’t particularly want to lose my 2 months-worth of information (I know, not such a loss, but I don’t want to lose it nevertheless).

If it helps at all, there are two tables in my mint database, one called mint_geo and the other… well, whatever the default mint table is called.

Thanks! And thanks for the great peppers.

GeoMint doesn’t ignore them, it just can’t get any info from hostip about the IP.

I really love this pepper, thanks Christoph.

Wanted to post to let everyone know the Long/Lat/Zoom which is best to get a view of the contintenal US, since thats what my clients naturally want their map to show:

  • Starting Longitude: -98.525391
  • Starting Latitude: 38.065392
  • Zoom Value: 3

Also, I use Safari, and GeoMint renders/looks beautiful.

Hi

I’ve just installed the latest batch of updates from shaun and its broken my geomint. I don’t have a map anymore :-(

Anyone showing similar problems?

Ok very strange I just updated my other mint and in that one geomint works fine.

I’ve reupp’d all the files in the other mint but still no geomint.
