We're wondering what it would involve in order to obtain the following:

In the case where a site uses your advanced module manager and your MaxMind based GeoIP plugin, when a visitor visits this website and no GeoIP is obtained automatically, a popup (modal window) would be imposed asking the visitor to please set their GeoIP information manually ?

This could also be triggered trough a menu item (even though this isn't a component per se). For example, the admin could set a GeoIP menu item which when clicked by a visitor would trigger the modal window to popup and prompt for user GeoIP info ?

Some sites are REALLY dependent on this GeoIP info and these 2 types of "functions" would greatly help in making sure the site get's that information.

Thanks

This is not something that is possible out of the box with Advanced Module Manager and it will also not become possible.
This would require some custom coded plugin/extension that would store the country based on the users IP or username or session.

You could use the PHP assignment to check wherever that data is stored.

Ok thanks
FYI, we will be looking into co developing this feature as we require it to fully geolocate and display relative content to our visitors.
If this is an interesting addons to your GeoIP plugin (converting it to a component as suggested) we'd be open to discussions with you.
Thanks
