One Google Maps plugin to rule them all. Google Maps Builder is intuitive, sleek, powerful and easy to use. Forget the rest, use the best.
There are a number features and functionality that set Google Maps Builder apart from the many WordPress Google Maps plugins. For starters, we promise this plugin will always have a light footprint. No extra tables or unnecessary overhead. Furthermore, the plugin is built from the ground up to be both easy and fun to use.
We have placed extra care and attention on the map creation process and are always looking to improve the UI with enhancements. It's our goal to integrate the plugin with the native WordPress admin UI without adding any distracting visuals. Finally, there are a number of additional features such as built in integration with Google Places API, Maps Icons and Snazzy Maps.
No. You do not need a Google Places API plugin to use this plugin.
Unlike many other Google Maps plugins, Google Maps Builder does not create a single new table in your WordPress database. There is no added database overhead or foreign MySQL queries. It's our guarantee that this plugin will never leave an orphaned table in your WordPress database.
You can find the shortcodes for each map on the post listing screen, within the post itself in the shortcode metabox (coming soon). Also coming soon: Map widget and TinyMCE button to include shortcode.
Google Maps Builder works by creating a plugin specific WordPress shortcode. Basically, you can copy the shortcode for a specific map and enter in into a widget or directly within content. As well, you can use the WordPress do_shortcode() function to use it within your theme template files and even plugins.
Soon! For now, you can use the shortcode in the text widget. Soon there will be a Google Maps Builder Widget.
