[resolved] Mashup markers disappearing (42 posts)

    I have a mashup map on my home page, and noticed that a marker that was there, is suddenly gone. So I made a list of the 19 posts, and started checking to see if they had a marker on the mashup. There were two that did not, so I deleted and re-entered the posts, and the markers are now there, but markers I had confirmed just minutes earlier, are now gone. I will be adding more than 300 posts with markers, and cannot afford to check and recheck to make sure the markers appear (and stay) again and again. HELP!

    Same here, Markers keep disappearing. I tried to change publishing dates, removing/re-adding markers etc. to no avail.

    But I don't have any duplicates... each pin-point is at a different location!

    are you using an address as a coordinate instead of decimal coordinates?

    If you mean was I using adding markers by specifying an address rather than specifying latitude and longitude values, then the answer is yes.

    And, I just tried replacing the markers with lat/lon markers and you're right, they now appear correctly in the mashup map! So first of all, thanks!!

    However, this is more of a workaround rather than a solution. In the plugin it says that you can add markers by entering an address ("Enter marker destination address or latitude and longitude"), and so in theory the mashup should work for markers added this way as well. Also, it requires searching for the lat/lon of each marker (there are websites that do this for you I know), which is a somewhat cumbersome extra step. It also makes the lat/lon appear in the bubble that comes up when the user clicks on the marker. I don't mind it, though I would rather the actual address appeared there instead.

    Anyway, thanks again for this solution, I'll use it until the marker address issue is fixed.

    Cheers!

    No problem)

    With this plugin there are two "problem" issues - setting the address instead of coordinates and duplicating coordinates) Very popular questions)

    Cheers!

    And mark this topic as [resolved] please

    Well, it's not resolved, it's still a bug in the plugin. There is a workaround (not using adresses), but it should be fixed in the plugin code. And yes, I am willing to donate ;-)

    Mashup markers disapearing resolved.
    There are few other topics for resolving problems with the address.
    Just hope the marker [resolved] to this topic will decrease the range of similar questions.

    Hi I am facing a similar problem. Markers seem to disappear randomly in mashups. Sometimes its limited to ten markers, at times it allows you to show about twenty, but it randomly shows some while others dont show up.

    Any ideas ?

    Here is the link to the mashup page

    This is not resolved. Half my mashup markers are missing. It's all random! Sometimes some things show and sometimes others.

    I do not know how to go through and use latitude and longitude values. That does not seem like an acceptable workaround.

    Use geo mashup plugin. It has a slightly steeper learning curve, but it is far more powerful, especially for mashups. And more importantly it works !

    Hope it helps you all.

    Thank you moreshk. I switched to Geo Mashup and it works great. This plugin is clearly broken.

    Was it always happening for you from the moment you have installed the plugin?
    Please update to v.8.0.1 and give it a go again. Lets see if the problem persists with the latest version

    Problem still there, I upgraded to the latest version. Note : I really did like the simplicity and flexibility the plugin provided.

    Hi Moreshk,

    Thank you for your reply. Are you (or any other user here) able to provide me with the following information:

    1. Have markers always kept disappearing when you used geomashup feature or has it started after certain plugin version or WordPress version update?

    2. Are you able to notice whether markers that disappeared have its coordinates entered as an address string or latitude/longitude on their respective post maps? More on this, if the marker that disappeared has its coordinates as an address - was the marker successfully displayed on its respective map in the post?

    3. Do markers disappear/re-appear on page refresh where geomashup map is OR when enable/disable geomashup?

    Also Moreshk, are you able to provide me with 1-2 addresses (or lat/long coordinates) of markers that you know have been disappearing from time to time (or always)?

    Hi alexanderzagniotov

    1) On my site markers started becoming an issue when the count exceeded 10 on the mashup.

    2) Markers on individual posts remain, they disappear on the mashup

    3) It is very random, different markers disappear each time and the other ones that were problematic start displaying. At times everything seems to work, so cannot say that a particular marker is an issue.

    Regards

    Sure, I have not replaced it on one of my sites (had to replace on two others). I can just updated it and let you know whether it works.
