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.

Best plug-in

Very responsive to your needs and will personalize your plug-in on request if you’re looking for something specific! Great for travel bloggers!

Best Map Creation Plugin

I searched for a customizable map and had difficulty finding a plugin that would meet our needs. Couldn’t be more pleased with this plugin. They walked me through every step of purchasing, installing, and using. Being this was my first time installing a paid app, I really appreciated the extra support. Thanks for making it a simple process and good user experience.

Excellent Support

Just purchased the premium map for my client and online support was almost immediately to fix up all the things needed for my work. Can’t ask for more! And they told me LIFE-TIME support. Yeh!

Best US interactive html5 map & WP

We have been using the US html5 map for few years now. The map is really the best looking of all the maps and has many settings and functionalities that all other maps do not have: such as zoom, states can be linked to custom internal or external links, each aspect of the map can be customized with specific color, and more.
We want it to improve the performance of our site and the map developer went and help us optimize – cant ask for better support than that.
They have maps for WP and HTML sites.

A bit of bait and switch

Not all of their maps are included in the free version and the only way to find out what’s included is to install the plugin and check.

I installed the plugin thinking that I would be able to use it for clickable US state maps. It turned out that option was available…in the premium version only. The free version only allows clickable US Regions.

I don’t mind paying for plugins, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time so I could make an informed decision.
