After further investigation it appears it has to do with the way the DNNspot_Maps_Markers table is created.

In previous versions, it gets created as;


But on DNN7 it gets created as;

How did you fix this problem?

@kTpeterson - I got your email and decided to respond here so all could see.

In my case it created the table, it just didn't name it correctly. I think I fixed the problem (partially) by renaming the table.

Is there anyone who could take a look at this. I think it would be an easy fix, but I'm not capable.

I changed the schema on 7.2.1, however adding the module to a page results in an error. Also I see the DNNSpot site is down, so no documentation on this.

Oh well...

Yes, I will be very sad to see this module go.

How about it DNNSpot. Are you still there? Please let us know if you can help.

Still here and alive! I can take a look at the issue.

Try this updated version. Seems to be working for me.

dnnspot wrote Mar 5, 2014 at 3:34 PM

I'll post it on the downloads page

djamell wrote Mar 5, 2014 at 3:39 PM

Great! I'll try to take a look and will report back hopefully by tomorrow.

Sorry it took so long to get back on this.

I can confirm that on a fresh install of DNN 7.2.2 the module installs properly.
