This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The plugin creates a map (using Google Maps) witch can be populated
by users with markers (for us it represents their
LUG “Linux Users Group” location, name, web site, coordinator and geographical position.

We are using it for example to show everyone
how many LUGs are in your country. 🙂

It can be also modified to suit your needs.
For example it creates a GeoRSS webservice, once you update the database with markers,
the GeoRSS will be updated live.


Version 1.6 is a complete OO rewrite.
Moved all the javascript part to jQuery and jmaps
All the data is now served using a GeoRSS feed.
Much cleaner code, easier to hack!


  1. Upload lug-map directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Settings menu where you’ll find the ‘Lug Map’ settings page


This plugin does…?

Nothing but a form to add markers and a Google Map with those markers
to any of your pages/articles you wish.
