Support » Plugin: Map My Posts » an extra functionality of the plugin

    Thank you for an excellent plugin. Works just fine and is relatively easy to implement.
    It works like a dream if you want to have a menu of your posts on one map, where people can view the posts accordingly to a location.
    I was thinking about using it in a bit different way for my travel blog. I was after a widget, that will show a map with the location, where the post was written, another words on every post in the side bar there would be only one marker…

    Is it doable? Maybe all I need is just to change a small peace of the code to make it work the way I envision it?

    thank you for your help

    Hi killiam80,

    You could insert a shortcode into your post (or add a function in your theme) which would show a map. With the shortcode, you would need to set the “parent” attribute to the category or tag your post is filed under. It might be better to make or use a plugin that allows you to associate locations with each individual post, instead of by category/tag as Map My Posts does…
