Excellent plugin
By , for WP 3.8.2

This plugin looks great and is easy to configure.
It works exactly the way I would want a Google Map widget to work.
Technical support is very good.

I recently had an issue and a plugin author got back to me right away and helped me find a workaround.

The only reason I gave the plugin 4 stars as opposed to 5 stars is that there seems to be a problem when using this plugin on a site that also uses Timely's All In One Event Calendar plugin. Web Factory tech support helped me create a workaround, like I said, but in a perfect world, I wouldn't need one.

Great widget ... but
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've had no problems with getting the widget to work - which is great - BUT:
It doesn't appear to be responsive. There are issues with the map being on the bottom and right sidebar widgets - when the page is resized the widget overlaps the confines of the page (or other widgets).

Other than that, great work!

Worked fine untill everything was deleted!
By ,

I was facing the same problem as so many others: no action when clicking the map in the whitebox. I tried so many things! I am no coder, but I was conviced this could be solved. I couldnt find the code line that should be deleted, but found something similar. After commenting out one line I hoped will work, i got the error message: "fatal error!" Everything I had written in the google maps wigdets were gone! Hours of work! I wish there would be more help to us noobs. Not everybody is code experts. And I would have never guessed that this could happen.

Please, fix this problem.

Since last updates plugin does not work, support is weak
By , for WP 3.8.1

Since last updates plugin does not work properly. When you click on map, only white "blur" appears. Support is also weak. On my question on this I did not receive any constructive feedback and my ticket was wrongly closed as Resolved. I am very disappointed about this attitude and bad plugin functionality, therefore I will switch to something else and recommend you to do same.

P.S.:my feeling is equal to Nextgen Gallery plugin. Who tried that knows what I mean...

Easy to configure, great support!
By , for WP 3.8

I am not a web developer, I'm a linux neckbeard. This was easy enough to configure for someone who has NO idea what they're doing with wordpress. Well, mostly easy enough, until I got snagged.... and was able to get quick, concise FREE support for the issue I was having! I had an issue with a theme on here and spent weeks trying to find someone to help, my issue with this widget was resolved within the hour. I cannot tell you how refreshing that is!

Great product, works flawlessly. The lightbox feature is superb, too. Thanks! 5 stars!

Great plugin - stunning support
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have been using the plugin on my son's school web site, and it works seamlessly, adding that little flare necessary for an information site such as a school site, whether it is an event, or just to mark the location of the school one can always find a place where to use it. However, what makes me comfortable to use the plugin, is not the plugin itself as nowadays we have come accustomed to solid code. It is the support offered by the developers that is top notch. When I had a small issue with the light box I was using, they were readily available to offer their support and expertise to help me solve it and put me back on track. Keep it up! So happy I chose this plugin out of the possible competition.

Congratulations on a great plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

Hi there guys.

I would like to congratulate you on a great plugin. At first I was having a problem with the plugin. The lightbox was not working but I added it directly into the Ultimatum Framework Child Theme. As soon as I moved it over to a widget area, it worked beautifully on the site I am currently building. Very nice work and thank you for making it available here on the WordPress site.

I have also looked on the CodeCanyon site and seen that you do a nice selection of WordPress plugin's. I will be taking a good look at the list when I have finished our current project. You have done some very nice work over there too.

Can use it overseas
By , for WP 3.8

I was able to install a map to an overseas address that Google doesn't recognize by pasting the Lat/Long into the address box.
