Street View Comments

Description

Street View Comments gathers comments attached to certain views of a Google Street View display along a street or avenue. It is easily configured for various points or intersections along a street and is embedded into a post or page via a shortcode. Viewers choose an intersection and zoom to a view then leave a comment. Comments can be moderated and managed within WordPress.

See a demo of the plugin here. By default, when you activate the plugin, the same data from this demo will load as intersections. Place [street-view-comments] in a post or page to see the demo.
