The maps are pretty, very responsive and customizable in a number of simple ways. With some tinkering (and help from the excellent and speedy customer support) I have created an ideal menu for city/province specific information.
I haven't found any other plugins out there like it.
It was perfect for my needs - displaying a global map, with the ability to place markers over various locations, which in turn displayed copy on hover. I also had options for coloring continents / oceans / location markers etc.
The plugin strikes a good balance between being simple to install and get working, and having enough customization options. They also offer very good service.
The company name "Simple Maps" fooled me - this map is far from "simple". It's comprehensive, easy to use and packed with features!
If you go to the company website, you can create a map with all the latest functionality - zooming in and out of continents, and borders to show all the different countries. Everything seems to be customisable - colours, background transparency, location dot colouring and transparency, clicking through to custom URLs, the list goes on .
All in all, a thoughtful and well build piece of software. Oh, and it's responsive (you just need to tweak a few settings).
Works as described, but is a bit limited as it only allows the continents to ve hoverable.
I tried this map and it works as described, but it's very limited, as it only allows continents to be hoverable.
