Google Map Shortcode
Map Points for Custom Taxonomies/Custom Post Types (2 posts)

    I am currently using the Google Map Shortcode plug-in on a site I'm developing, and it's working just fine for "standard" Posts and Pages.

    Recently, I added a Custom Post Type (called "hotels") to the site, and created two new Custom Taxonomies to use with this ("cities" and "regions"). I'd like to use the plug-in mentioned above to display map points for posts that use the CPT/Custom Taxonomies, and so far it will let me add the points in question, but doesn't properly spit them out on the relevant theme template file - it only shows the first post within the taxonomy, but not the others.

    On line 223 of google-map-shortcode.php, there's this:

    $post_obj = get_posts(array('category__in'=>$categories,'numberposts'=>-1));

    This is used to query posts within a category and print out their associated map points; of course, the problem is that because Custom Taxonomies aren't "traditional" categories, it doesn't quite work with them :(

    Can any of you guys think of a way I can query the taxonomies correctly to get the points from each post within them?

    As always, any help would be gratefully received!

    simply follow this link
    it will guide you through adding custom fields to custom taxonomy
    from that point you can add html code in the new meta box created and insert your google map code there.then take the two points x,y and insert it in two text inputs and store them for your custom taxonomy.
