Fantastic plugin with an incredible number of features. Free version is great, however the Pro version really opens it up to enormous functionality at a very low budget. Great work!
I am so impressed with this plugin. It gives so much flexibility to create interesting and creative maps. I used to run a Geospatial Unit for a local council and this plugin helps me create interactive maps that are far better than the software we used to use.
For the first time, this made creating maps on my web site easy, with the basic interface intuitive, and usage error free. I only wish I had time and occasion to research all the additional features, and give a fuller report.
Amazing Plugin and support always present!
I don't want to disrespect other map plugins, but this is the best map plugin I've ever found.
I was looking for a map plugin that allows programmatic add/search/update markers on the map. There are quite some number of map plugins in WordPress, but reading through their introductions/descriptions were not enough for me to figure out whether or not they can serve my purpose. So I had to install them one by one, and try each of them.
I was repeating this tedious steps (install a plugin, try it, and remove it) until I came to know this great Leaflet Maps Marker.
Thumb up for the plugin writer.
Longer review because I'm explaining how it works which I didn't understand at first. But this is THE most incredible plugin. Here's how it works in case you're as new as I was.
You make an individual Marker Map showing one location (well laid out data entry despite its many options). That takes about a minute if you have the address handy. If you want a number of locations to show on a map, you create a Layer Map (again, easy data entry layout despite many options). And on the layer, you call in whatever Marker Maps you've created that you want. They're listed below the layer map. Set the zoom level you want visitors to see on default for that layer, and that's it, you're ready to go. A Layer Map takes me about 2 minutes, max. Plus, if you forgot to assign your markers to a particular layer, there's a bulk-action setup so you can select the ones you want to assign to that layer all at once. Sooo friendly!
Next, when writing posts, there's now a button next to "Add Media" which is "Add Map" and whammo, your individual marker maps and layer maps are listed. Highlight which map you want in the post and hit "Insert map" and in comes the bracketed shortcode. Place it wherever you want the map to appear within the post, and presto. Done deal. No glitches, no confusion. Easily changeable.
Pop-up balloons on Marker Maps are either defaulted to show, or set for click-marker-to-show/hide, your call, with each one individually. You can put anything in those pop-up balloons you want. This is sooo easy, sooo user friendly (both backend and frontend) and everything works. I did have a glitch on the free version which disappeared when I downloaded the "free 30 days trial full version" and it may well have been something I was doing but I'd suggest starting with the free version just to see how it works, but as soon as you're thinking you like it, go to the 30-day trial. LOVE this plugin! I use a ton of maps and they have to be VERY flexible. Heads, tails and bodies over the other two map plugins I tried. Just no freaking comparison at all.
Up and running right after install. A ton of great features in the free version, although I'll most likely upgrade to Pro.
Previously we created maps directly at Google Maps and embedded the map-code in WordPress; however marker-icons and other graphics had to be imported from a hosted site. With Leaflet Maps Marker, everything can be done within WordPress, and with the various map selections, a single map can now be viewed beyond the viewing options offered by Google Maps alone. Another benefit is that the plugin can be translated into any language. Great support and great plugin - well done!!
