Google Maps made Simple

Description

Google Maps made Simple by WP-G-Mappity

WPGMappity allows you to easily insert Google Maps into your posts. No XML or JavaScript needed, building a Google Map is done completely in a WYSIWYG form inside your blog.

Versions 0.5 and above use version 3 of the Google Maps API. For you this means:

  • No API key needed
  • New features
  • Fast downloads: visitors to your blog only download one extra file from Google – nothing from you.

Features include:

  • Markers and custom icons
  • Routing
  • Map Controls
  • Completely customizable size and alignment

Bug fixes:

Changed the “edit marker” screen to load markers with an asynchronous delay. Loading more than 5 markers too quicly was hitting the Google Maps API geocaching rate limit. Google should be happier about this.

“Unwedged” broken databases – People that upgraded with the first 0.5 versions find their DBs in an usable format.

Now using version 3 of the Google Maps API. This means all the goodies of v3 come that with it:

  • API key no longer needed.
  • Large speed increase.
  • Significantly smaller code footprint.
  • WPGMappity has been updated to reflect new map types and new map control types.

Custom marker images. The UI is pretty basic at this point: When creating a marker you can specify a URL that a marker icon can be loaded from.
