we've been just opening our site http://www.romeluv.com/
It is a blog with lots of nice pictures of Rome and recommendations of cool places.
To develop an easy way to build a growing map with all the posts, we've tried many plugins with little success.
So we've designed a custom Google Maps plugin.
What we accomplished:
*Automatically placing a Google Map inside every post just writing the address in a custom box.
*Generating a Global Map with all the posts, placing this global map in a standard WordPress Page via a simple shortcode.
We've been developing this plugin and it's already downloadable for free: we'd love to hear some feedback
Will submit to the repository as soon as it gets accepted too.
Hope it helps somebody in a task that proved a bit longer we expected.
It should work out of the box for building a simple geoblog.
The plugin is easy to hack to accomplish lots of possibilites - if your issue is geocoding or displaying multiple markers on a map, it may prove very useful.
PS: would love to hear some comments as the site theme is concerned too!
Thank you so much
