Basic Google Maps Placemarks

Embeds a Google Map into your site and lets you add map markers with custom icons and information windows.

Other Notes


If there isn't a translation for your language (or it is incomplete/inaccurate) please consider making one and contributing it to the plugin. You can learn how by reading Translating WordPress and How to Create a .po Language Translation. The .pot file you'll need is inside the languages directory in the plugin's folder. Once you're done, just start a thread on the support forum with links to the .po and .mo files, and I'll add them to the next release. You can also subscribe to the BGMP Translators e-mail list to be notified when updated versions have new strings to translate.

How you can help with the plugin's development

  • The thing I could really use some help with is answering questions on the support forum. I don't have a lot of time to work on the plugin, so the time I spend answering questions reduces the amount of time I have to add new features. If you're familiar with the plugin and would like to help out, you can click the 'Subscribe to Emails for this Plugin' link to get an e-mail whenever a new post is created.
  • Translate the plugin into your language. See the Localizations section above for details.
  • Volunteer to test new versions before they're officially released. Sign up for the BGMP Testers e-mail list to be notified when new release candidates are available for testing.
  • If you find a bug, create a post on the support forum with as much information as possible. If you're a developer, create a patch and include a link to it in the post.
  • Send me feedback on how easy or difficult the plugin is to use, and where you think things could be improved. Add a post to the support forum with details.
  • Send me feedback on ways the documentation could be more clear or complete. Add a post to the support forum with details.
  • Review the code for security vulnerabilities and best practices. If you find a security issue, please contact me privately so that I can release a fix for it before publicly disclosing it.
  • Check the TODO.txt file for features that need to be added and submit a patch.


I do this as a way to give back to the WordPress community, so I don't want to take any donations. If you'd like to give something, though, I'd encourage you to make a donation to Doctors Without Borders or the WordPress Foundation.


If you need to customize BGMP and a solution isn't already available in the forums, the best thing to do is to hire a developer. Your local WordPress Meetup is a great place to meet one, or you can also check out jobs.wordpress.net.

If you make customizations that could be beneficial to other users, please start a thread on the support forum with a description of them and a link to the source code.
