Address Field Order Priority

Mage Google Maps retrieves the address in the following order, until an address value is returned and not empty.
* The address parameter in the shortcode, or address field when using the widget. For Auto-Displaying of addresses, these should be left empty.
* When displayed on selected Post Types, both shortcode and widget will take address data from the fields specified on the Address Data settings page.
* Lastly, if no address data is received from the above options, Mage Google Maps will use the Default Address option as a fallback.

Multi-Address Archives

Whenever the [map] shortcode or widget are on an archive page, Mage Google Maps will attempt to crawl all archive items and add a map marker for each supported post type with an address.
