WP_GMaps2

Description

This plugin allows the integration of Google Maps on your pages or posts using the WordPress Editor (TinyMCE). It supports multiple maps on the same post/page and within each map you can set many options, like the position of the marker, controls, icon of the marker, InfoWindow with Tabs with HTML support, etc. Give it a try.

Screenshots

  • In the Google Maps window you can insert or update your map.
  • The final result.

FAQ

Which version of the Google Maps API is used in this plugin?

It uses the Google Maps API version 2.

Why do I have to get a Google Maps API key?

In order to use the API, Google requires that you register a key for your site domain. In the version 3 of the API this is no longer necessary.

This plugin will support the version 3 of the Google API?

Yes, I’m on it. However this version doesn’t support yet some of the features that we have on the version 2 (like the tabs on the InfoWindow). But soon this plugin will be release, probably with the name WP_GMaps3.
