This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin replaces coordinates, i.e. latitudes and longitues, between a [coord]-Tag with a link to Google’s map service.


[coord]49.579276566362985,10.9292078018188488[/coord] comes up as (49.5792, 10.9292)
To adjust the link layout of transformed links open wpCoordinates.php in your favorite editor and adjust the following variables:

  • $zoom: the zoom level, default is 15. Try some values between 1 and 17 (I guess)
  • $type: map type, i.e. m for map, k for a satellite image, h for hybride (satellite image with street names, etc.), p for terrain
  • $url: URL scheme, replace .de with .com for an english version of Google Maps. DON’T forget %LAT% and %LONG%


  1. Download the package
  2. Decompress the archive, if wished, customize the wpCoordinates.php and upload the wpcoordinates folder to /wp-content/plugins/ on your webspace
  3. Activate wpCoordinates through the ‘Plugins’ menu in your WordPress
