My Maps location: Frontend Location Submission

1. Add and manage locations

My maps location offers the option to submit and manage your own locations from frontend. First you'll need to create a menu that allows frontend submission.

From the Joomla menu manager, add an element  and select as type “Add locations”. Then by clicking on it users will be redirected, after login, to a location submission form.
The menu "My locations" allows user to edit their previously submitted locations.
