WP Cloudmade Maps

Add static and interactive cloudmade maps to your website, using a widget, different shortcodes and a tinymce GUI for user-friendly map-embedding.

With WP Cloudmade Maps you are able to add static and interactive maps to your website using Cloudmades designable OpenStreetMaps-Data. This way you can add maps that fits your webdesign. Choose from over 50.000 ready-to-use map styles or create your own with the CloudMade Style Editor.

The Plugin comes with

  • a widget to show your last geotagged posts with static maps,
  • a shortcode for static maps
  • two shortcodes for interactive maps

and countless attributes, to fit the maps your ideas.

All shortcodes are accessible via an user-friendly tinymce button and a lightweight configuration interface for editors. As Administrator you're able to set everything as defaults, so your editor just have to 'click & drop' a new map inside a post, page or a custom_post_type at all.
