Provides a table of locations with automatic links to a Google map for each one. Custom links can also be created.
This is a simple plugin to create a list (table) of locations (screenshot-4) with links to maps to each one. It creates a custom post type, game_locations, installs an editor for this post type, and provides a shortcode, [mstw_gl_table], to display the custom posts.
Use the Edit Game Location screen (screenshot-2) to enter the Location (as the title), the street address, city, state, and zip. The plug-in builds the link to that location on Google Maps for display through the Game Locations table. The Custom URL field is normally not needed and therefore left blank. (See FAQ #2.)
The references are to "game locations", only because that was original purpose of the plugin. However, it works for any type of location - schools, churches, businesses, whatever.
In version 1.1, the table was changed to provide a third column with a "thumbnail" icon of the map (for default Google Maps) and a link from it to the map URL. This is (hopefully) graphically more appealing, but the core functionality is really unchanged. A Settings page was added to the Admin Dashboard to support a few styling options (screenshot-4), particularly for the mail thumbnail in the table, but most styling must be done in the plugin's stylesheet.
The Game Locations plugin is the first in a set of nine plugins supporting a framework for sports team websites. Others will include Game Schedules, Team Rosters, Coaching Staffs, Sponsors, plus more.
