Maps Builder - Google Maps Plugin

The most flexible, robust, and easy to use WordPress plugin for creating powerful Google Maps directly on your website.

What sets this plugin apart from all the other Google Maps plugins for WordPress?

There are a number features and functionality that set 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 and Routes APIs, Snazzy Maps, many marker icon libraries, and more. We suggest you give it for a test drive.

Do I need a Google Places API Key to use this plugin?

No. You do not need a Google Maps API plugin to use this plugin but if you would like to track your usage you can enter it into the plugin settings screen.

Does this plugin create any new database tables?

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.

Where can I find the shortcodes for each map I create?

You can find the shortcodes for each map on the post listing screen, within the post itself in the TinyMCE Map Builder button.

What the heck is a shortcode and how do I use it?

Maps Builder works by creating a plugin specific WordPress shortcode. You can easily add maps to your posts with the Map Builder button integrated within the TinyMCE WordPress editor. You may also copy the shortcode for a specific map and enter in into a widget or directly within a metafiend. As well, you can use the WordPress do_shortcode() function to use it within your theme template files or plugins for further customization.

Does this plugin include a widget for displaying maps?

Yes! In the free version there is a basic widget for adding maps to sidebars. Upgrade to Pro for more control.
