This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. 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
