I found a bug. Where should I post it?

Please use the issues section in the GitHub-Repository.

I will most likely not maintain the forum support forum on Anyway, other users might have an answer for you, so it’s worth a shot.

I’d like to suggest a feature. Where should I post it?

Please post an issue in the GitHub-Repository

I am a map tile provider. Please don’t include our service in your plugin.

The provisers list is taken from Leaflet providers, so requests for an unlisting should go there first.

If you want your service to remain in Leaflet Providers, you can Post an issue in the plugin’s GitHub-Repository.
Please provide me some way for me to verify, that you are acting on behalf of the Tile service provider your want to exclude.
(E.g. the providers website has a link to your github account.)

Im getting these “Insecure Content” Warnings

Some providers – like OpenPtMap or MtbMap – do not support https. If these warning bother you, choose a different one.

Why isn’t the map loading?

There is very likely an issue with the map tiles provider you’ve choosen. Some of them might be down or have suspended their service. Choose another one.

I need to do some fancy JS magic with my map.

Check out the GitHub wiki. Some of the js events might come in handy for you.
For Documentation of the map object, please refer to LeafletJS.

Will you anwser support requests via emails?

Thank you Jörn Lund for your contribution to include OpenStreetMap field available for Advanced Custom Fields. I was looking for an alternative to Google Maps and this plugin makes using OpenStreetMap with ACF very easy. I highly recommend this plugin for people who are looking for Google Maps alternative. Different return formats together with countless map tiles ensure that you can build your map and its appearance how you want it to be.

This is a great plugin with tons of options! You can either use its default Leaflet Map via simple php code, or create use the raw data from backend to create your custom map!

Not working, no matter what I do, the plugin won't show anything on front end part (JS files from the plugin are not loading). So yeah, useless as it is. BUT I could get datas from back office using the REST API, so I create my own map with registered posts.

Dopo la scelta di mettere le mappe di Google a pagamento, questo Addon era indispensabile, mi ha salvato in diverse situazioni, grazie!
