I have recently switched to your great Google Map Placemarks plug-in because the previous map plug-in that I spent a month or more populating with many place markers over nine different maps did not play nicely with a theme upgrade. The plug-in author didn't respond to a request for advice (the maps now have vertical bars down them and the scroll ladder and info boxes are messed up) so I decided to cut my losses and start again with another Google map plug-in.
After checking out a few different possibilities (all of which work properly with the theme), I settled on yours and I like it very much - with the categories and the ability to better format the info box it is also more versatile than what I was using before.
As I prefer Terrain view I did the workaround of editing the functions.js file as you suggested in an earlier thread - thanks for the tip :-)
My one remaining issue is a biggie - I really need to specify the map center, zoom, etc through shortcode arguments, otherwise I can only display one "whole world" map each time, rather than displaying an individual zoomed-in portion on each different page.
While I'm waiting for this feature to be added, I am happy to keep going re-creating all my place markers but was wondering how far up your "To Do" list the shortcode arguments are, or alternatively, whether it might be possible for me to get this functionality now by adding some code somewhere?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
