I am currently having problems posting my node on the "World Map." I can see my node on the "Force Map" on this site. Can anyone tell me how to enter the public IP so that it can be seen on the "World Map"? My node is currently showing the pubkey but not the public IP.

Can anyone help me with steps of how to enter the IP of my node?
