CP Google Maps allows to associate geolocation information to your posts and to integrate your blog with Google Maps in an easy and natural way.
Google Map features:
► Insert a Google map in the best position within your blog ► Deal with large volumes of dots or markers on the Google Maps ► Uses Google Maps to discover additional entries related to the post ► The location can be defined by physical address and point coordinates ► Map markers customization ► Allows to embed Google Maps in multiple languages ► Allows several Google Maps controls and configuration options
CP Google Maps allows to insert a Google Maps in a post or in any of the WordPress templates that display multiple posts.
The Google Maps inserted in a single post displays a marker at the position indicated by the geolocation information pertaining to the post, but also shows markers of the last posts published in related categories. The number of markers to display on the Google Maps can be set in the plugin's settings.
The Google Maps inserted into a template displaying multiple posts will contain as many markers as posts making up the page with the associated geolocation info. When the mouse is hovered over the marker, the post to which it belongs gets highlighted.
Google Maps has a wide range of settings to make your maps more versatile and adaptable.
More about the Main Features:
Note 1: To display all points that belong to a specific category, it is required to insert the following shortcode [codepeople-post-map cat="3"]. The number 3 represent the category ID, replace this number by the corresponding category's ID. To insert the code directly in a template, the snippet of code is:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[codepeople-post-map cat="3"]'); ?>
Note 2: To display all points that belong to more than one category, separate the categories IDs with the comma symbol [codepeople-post-map cat="3,5"]. The numbers 3 y 5 are the categories IDs, replace these numbers by the corresponding categories IDs. To insert the code directly in a template, the snippet of code is:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[codepeople-post-map cat="3,5"]'); ?>
Note 3: To display all points in the website, use -1 as the category's ID: [codepeople-post-map cat="-1"] or for template.
If you prefer configure your map directly from the shortcode, then you must enter an attribute for each map feature to specify. For example:
[codepeople-post-map width="500" height="500"]
The complete list of allowed attributes:
width, height, zoom, type, mousewheel, zoompancontrol, typecontrol
Note 4: The geolocation information is stored in image's metadata from mobiles or cameras with GPS devices.
Note 5: Some plugins interfere with the shortcodes replacements, and provokes that maps don't be loaded correctly, in this case should be passed a new parameter through the shortcode print=1
Passing the parameter print=1, displays the map at beginning of page/post content.
