Bamboo Maps


In three simple steps, you can have any fully interactive Google map embedded in any page of your website.

Setup the map as you want it in Google Maps.
Copy the link provided by Google.
Paste the link into your WordPress page and wrap it in our shortcode – Thats It!
Before you use this plugin you need to get the map you want from Google.

To do this go to Google Maps, search, zoom, or browse until it is showing the map you want. Click the Settings cog icon followed by ‘Share and embed map’ and copy the link that Google gives you.

Once you’ve got your link, paste it into your content and wrap it in a google-map shortcode:

Your link from Google goes here
