How can I insert a map to a page?

Insert the map shortcode into the text of a page or a post where you want the map to be. Short codes can be viewed on tab “Maps”.

Will I be able to visually edit settings and data?

Yes. There is a built-in visual editor that allows you to tune up and configure map design, colors, popups and side info with zero coding. And to insert the map on a page, you simple paste the shortcode.

I want to execute a JavaScript instead of opening a URL when the region is clicked. Is this possible?

Yes. You can type any valid JavaScript code in the URL field of the region’s settings. Note though, that the region’s click option must be set to “Open a URL” in this case.
Here is an example of the JS code executing upon a click to the region:
javascript:window.alert(‘Hello, World!’);

I don’t want to use popup windows. Instead, I would like to display information below the map.

Set the region’s click option to “Show more info” in the Detailed Settings section, and type the information you would like to display, or upload media.

What kind of media can I use in the side panel displayed below the map or right of it?

Any type WordPress can deal with.


A heavily crippled free version and expensive pro version

This is a well-executed plugin. However, the maps that are provided in the free version are really not those that any user would want to use.

Continents and regions are available at the free level, but individual countries, US States, or individual counties within states are what you’d really want to be interactive. And these are not available in the free version.

I’m all for supporting the work of developers and I invest in premium plugins regularly. Unfortunately, the pro version of this plugin is priced very high. It’s a shame, this could be a very map solution.

Very good plugin

This is a very good plugin. It has many options, and many maps. The free version is very good and covers basic needs, but it’s true power resides in the pro version! I totaly recommend this awesome plugin.
