    this looks awesome, devin - is there a plan to associate markers with posts or better yet, extend post meta with marker info so that they automatically appear on a map if values are provided?

    Hmm, I haven't given that much thought. It sounds very similar to what MapPress does. I'm hesitant to start moving data from the main CPT but I would like to hear more about what you are proposing to fully understand.

    Can you give me a scenario where this would be useful?

    you are right, it is similar to what mappress does - i have just taken your mantra - "One Google Maps plugin to rule them all." - and that's then a missing feature.

    a scenario where it would be useful is if i want to track spatial movement of blogposts, e.g. a travel blog. obviously one could simply link the marker to the map as a workaround, however if i have 100 itineraries it gets difficult.

    another interesting feature would be directions integration.

    thanks for your blazing fast response, btw...

    Yeah haha, I knew that mantra would eventually get me in trouble. I'm going to keep my ear out and if I receive more similar requests then I'll consider adding it. But for now, there's a bunch of other features, like directions, that I want to build into the plugin.

    You are right about the directions being a large missing component. This is on my priority to get into the plugin asap. For now, I'm going to mark this as resolved but will keep a mental note of your request.
