still not tested with other themes and may appear ugly.

Works still in WP 4.9.4, has problems with https

Works still in WP 4.9.4, has problems with https, as the default layer pulls images with http, not https, and also cannot be reconfigured as such – I tried to patch the code. So I ended up in patching the code to pull a different default layer, which does work.

Also a possibility to specify width and height of the map would be great. Otherwise: Good to have this, thanks a lot!
