The easiest to use Google maps plugin! Create custom maps with high quality markers containing locations, categories, descriptions, images and links.
i first liked that plugin very much because it is comfortable to use and and the maps look good - great plugin ...
BUT ... then i tried to transfer my blog to a a different webspace (and domain) and got really annoying is_dir errors ... took my a couple of hours to find out it was wp google maps that caused the trouble and made nothing work anymore ...
seems the plugin tries to find some temp directory at some place where it is not ... if i got that right ...
it is a pity because apart of that it works really fine.
you could save future users lots of time and nerves if you fix that!
when it is fixed - contact me and i will edit my rating to five stars :)
Free version is too less functional
Altough plugin works as described author forgot to mention that it creates 40 (forty) additional server requests which is a red flag for anyone concerned with loading speed.
Can you add a simple text box or dropbox to add the zoom level to your map? It's a simple but necesary option.
Everytime I add a point to the map I receive a database error saying there is no default value for the category field.
I downloaded, uploaded, extracted and installed; I even paid the $15 to upgrade to the pro version.
And it immediately crashed - not just the page where the widget was supposed to be imbedded - but the whole site! None of the links work, leaving my business site useless and worse than worthless: it makes me look incompetent.
If you have a professional website, stay away from this plugin. It's a killer.
Free version is useless. You can't do anything with it. I want my 5 minutes back it took me to figure it out.
Useless for free version
I do not think that this plugin adds any benefit to your webpage that you cannot achieve just as easy by going to Google Maps. The only possible advantage would be the short-code to insert. The basic version works more as a way to promote the paid plugin. It is just too basic.
Good plugin, easy to use and works. But the Lite or Free version is just a (very)basic demo. I understand that you guys need (and deserves) to make money, but the free version is way too limited. I teach WordPress at Brazil and wanted to feature your plugin in my class, but it´s not possible because i can´t even put title on the marks. Usually i don't make negative reviews, sorry for that, but i think you can do better at the free version. Thanks anyway.
