The old geo system (based on regions and cities tables) needs to be replace by a new one based on geonames_cache and similar tables

  • add new entry for a given id
  • search for a location (map assisted) to retireve a geonamesid
  • update data with changes from
  • blog is already based on the new system


  • switch old cities and regions tables to views
  • run the following stuff by daily cron:
    • modules/geo/lib/geonames.lib.php getUpdate() and getAltnamesUpdate()
  • make use of the new structure (mostly in profile, search and places)
