Suggerimenti

Dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti risulta migliorato di parecchio, create un logo per il plugin, e continuate nel supporto mi raccomando.

Awesome map-plugin — Great service

I am using this great map-plugin in PRO-Version since 5 years and had no problems at all. The best is the individual help and kind & quick service by Chris Richardson in person. I tried several map-plugins in my WP-site but removed them all to keep MapPress at the end.

And now in my mother-language (German):

Ein tolles Karten-Plugin, das mich nie enttäuscht hat und eine Menge kann. Der Service ist exzellent !!!

good plugin

Great free plugin, it meets my needs. Recently some issues though with correct presentation of the map that is presented vague.

Big Disappointment

The latest update disabled KML support and introduced an utterly ugly map layout. A direct integration with Gmaps API via Scripts n Styles is super easy and so much better.
