[resolved] Feature Suggestion: Extra Marker Icons (11 posts)

    Very nice interface, works well.

    One improvement might be to add the ability to choose a marker image for each extra marker that is set (like building, car, etc).

    Also - if extra markers are added, the primary location address should still be centered in the map. Currently it centers between the primary, and extras (at least it did when I added just one extra marker).

    Thanks!

    Hi WebEnDev,
    Thank you for your feedback. Custom icons are a great idea.
    Regarding the centering, I have made sure that all present markers are within user's view. Otherwise, the user may not resize that there are some extra markers exist outside his current map view. What do you think ?

    Hi Alexander,
    I didn't realize that all present markers are within users view. That might work. I guess I should have tested it with more than one extra marker to see.

    I guess the problem is really the icons. If you have extra markers, they look the same as the primary location. So when the user is looking at the map, they really don't know which is the primary location very well...

    Other than that, very nice plugin. I rated it 5 stars.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Sorry for the late reply. Again, you raise a very good point regarding icons. I will *try* to squeeze it in this weekend.

    Appreciated the good feedback!

    Cheers

    This is truly a very nice interface - thank you very much.

    I would like to add my vote to the custom icons (markers).

    Apart from that I just wanted to say thank you.

    Wonderful work. Thank you very much for your effort!

    For the ones who wants to add their own marker - simply place your marker image in assets/css/images/markers/ to make it available in the Shortcode Builder Map Markers section.
