The easiest to use Google maps plugin! Create custom maps with high quality markers containing locations, categories, descriptions, images and links.
a bit sad how limited it is. but it works
Has been a great product, even with support questions. Fixes have been applied right away. Always appreciate good support!
I like this simple to use plugin.
I was not understand how it works. But I just install the plugin and get what was I need.
There is map dimension, select elements on the map, exactly address with coordinates and etc. In Pro version I can draw multiple lines or polylines or polygon area. It is enough for my first Map for contact page.
By the Categorie's Map I can create new icons for some markers on the Map. It is great idea for make individual styled markers on the map.
I will recommend this plugin for Contact page as well as for all-around pages of web-sites.
For improving I have small Idea to use track-styled font for create polyline on the maps. By this case the solid colored lines may be changed for wolk (foot-tracking), for car driving (tire tracks) and etc.
J' adore ce plugin, il est terriblement simple et efficace, il correspond à 85% à mes attentes dans sa version pro payante, la conversion dollars/euros me l'a fait payer 10€ et vu les services qu'il peut rendre je ne vais pas me plaindre.
Il est presque entièrement francisé ( ce qui n' est pas traduit est très facilement compréhensible ).
Les marqueurs sont facilement customisables ainsi que la taille des fenêtres descriptives, idem pour la taille des miniatures des images et la taille des cartes.
Le shortcode peut s' insérer partout : page, article, widget.
On peut insérer du HTML dans les descriptions.
On ne peut pas mettre les marqueurs dans plusieurs catégories.
On ne peut pas attribuer une image de marqueur spécifique pour chaque catégorie.
On peut insérer le shortcode dans un widget "texte" mais il s' affichera dans la taille réglée, pour afficher une carte miniature il faut en creer ( et surement utiliser la fusion des tables pour afficher les marqueurs mais je n' ai pas compris. )
Dans l' ensemble le bilan est très positif.
I bought Nick's plugin to replace a client's custom Google Maps implementation with over 100 markers that was just not maintainable.
I did have some compatibility issues with other plugins but Nick was very responsive and quickly helped me get that all sorted out.
The client can now quickly and easily update any existing markers and even add their own new custom ones.
Some of the things you'd *like* a free Google Maps plugin to do aren't included, but that's to be expected with a freemium plugin like this. Worth the upgrade just to have custom marker icons. I'd use it again rather than bother looking elsewhere. For me it's battle-tested. There was one bug last summer that would cause the custom markers not to update, but Nick was quick in diagnosing it and explained the issue/fix well on his support forum. I think it's been fixed in an update. Good plugin, great support.
I had a problem with a css conflict between my theme style sheet and this plugin. I'm still working on that issue but I do have this plugin working well on another site. Overall the WP Google Maps works very well.
But the best thing is that when I had an issue, the developer was back with a solution in less than 24 hours, pretty remarkable for a plugin. I did upgrade to the pro version which is well worth the $15.
This is probably the most powerful plugin for Google Maps. I tried several of the offered plugins here, but none of them were able to give me the functionalities which I required.
I purchased the pro edition of "wp Google Maps" in order to get access to nearly all functions. I have made a .csv with more than 100 markers and uploaded them into the map.
Well, where is then the missing star?
The plugin is unfortunately not easy to handle. Messages are missing and errors mostly not displayed. You have to figure out most of the advanced stuff by yourself. It took me about 15 hours to get everything handled.
In the end, I am just happy to have found this plugin which has a lot of power inside. If you have the time and the stamina to get everything settled, you will love it.
