Hi Ben, not sure if this is the right place, but let's try.
Just tested the plug-in. Everything works just fine with the exception of the map. Map is simply not loaded. I got an email-notification from my cron job

Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /home/giusec/public_html/cgi-bin/mt/plugins/FireEagle/fireeagle.pl line 288.

This has something to do with this line:

if ( $geo->{type} eq 'Point' ) {
return sprintf "http://maps.google.com/staticmap?size=%s&markers=%s,reda&zoom=%d&key=%s",

Not sure if this is the real reason for the map not loaded. Any thoughts? Where else can I post my question?

You can see results (no map) on my blog and my test blog sidebars. I am using exactly the same widget listed on the readme-file.




Sorry to bother and thanks in advance


giusec -- I think they updated the JSON version of the API yesterday, from a discussion I saw last night on the mailing list. The "geojson" element is now called "geometry", iirc. I'll do an update to the plugin today to use the new element name.

OK, thanks. In fact, i get that error (line 288) every time the cron job runs.

Once you re-pot the plugin, should we reinstall the entire plugin or just few files?


Okay, I've uploaded a new version of the plugin: version 1.02. Once you've downloaded it, you can replace plugins/FireEagle/fireeagle.pl with the new version; that should fix the problem.

in fact, it works now. Thanks. No longer error messages from the Cron Job. Still no map, but this is probably another story.

Any chance there's a way to get this working with Typepad? Very cool...
