Google Maps Shell


This plugin is for developers and is meant to be used to enable Google Maps integration. While it does come with a default location, developers will want to feed the plugin a nested array of location data. This data can be manually curated or retrieved through external means.

You need to use the filter ab_google_maps_markers and return the new nested array.


function new_array( $markers ) {     $markers = (object) array( 
            'lat' => '30.266132', 
            'lon' => '-97.745825',             'title' => 'Gingerman Austin',             'address' => '301 Lavaca St, Austin TX 78701'         ),         array(             'lat' => '30.2658',             'lon' => '-97.735691',             'title' => 'Easy Tiger Bake Shop and Beer Garden',             'address' => '709 East 6th St, Austin TX 78701'         ),     );     return $markers; } add_filter( 'ab_google_maps_markers', 'new_array' ); 


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Get a Google Maps API Key from the Google Developers Console
  4. Add define( 'AB_GMAPS_API_KEY', 'foo'); to your wp-config.php file where foo is the API Key from Google.
