MapPress is the most popular and easiest way to create great-looking Google Maps and driving directions in your blog.
The free version of this plugin works well and is pretty intuitive to use…….it adds a module on the Post (and/or Page) edit screen (depending on how you have the plugin configured) for adding maps to any Post or Page…….just give the map a name, enter in your POIs (points of interest) or a latitude/longitude and it will display the map in accordance with the plugin's other General Settings. If you want more, that's what the Pro version is for.
I would like to see the developer add the option to have a "default" treatment for instances when a map cannot be displayed, something like a default image or editable text message ("map coming soon!") - we have the shortcode built into our template and occasionally (for a variety of reasons) can't display a map but to keep the layout looking right that area is styled in a specific way - so we have a big blank space where the map would ordinarily go. I'd like to be able to put something else there when a map isn't present. I can do this with some tricky coding, but many WP users would probably like just a tickbox with the option of entering a URL to a default image or some text message to display instead.
All in all a great plugin and very sophisticated for a freebie…kudos to the developer!
Works great and as advertised. Exactly what I needed to put a map on a page. Easy to use.
Like a lot very useful tools in this plugin! And natural localization (my lang is Ru)
Very Good documentation from developer site. Good work!
thanks for this plugin
I have been using Mappress for a few yearas and it is the most flexible for my use, and mashup is great. The instructions, forum and support is tops in my book, very quick answers.
best google map plugin ever i used. Thank you Map Press.
The best and should be the only map plugin you install in your wordpress blog. Great features/customization with the pro version! The support is outstanding. (Response time was like 30mins or so. for each question.)
Just installed this to a directory site we are building - it is absolutely perfect.
LOVE that the maps can be made responsive - we've added 77 so far and it's a real breeze once you get into the swing of things.
So much more functionality than I'd expect from a free plugin.
simply to use
exactly what I needed
Good plugin. Does what most of us need.
