Support » Plugin: Leaflet Maps Marker (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing Maps) » Be careful! Updates don’t care on free users!

  • I’ve got in big trouble because of this plugin. From one recent update, the maps just stop working. No solution, just weeks and weeks waiting for support. As i tryed the 30 days PRO Demo, surprisingly, evertything worked like a charm, with all my old layers and markers working. But downgrading was not so easy. The plugin lost my layers, and days of work where just gone. Another problem was with the icons: The old version came with a nice group of icons. Now, in the new one, you have to download the stupid icons by sets. The problem is: All the old icons i had used on my site where gone! The pro plugin worked ok, but this free version gave me nothing but troubles!

    Hi Guido,

    sorry for the issues with our free plugin & the late reply – we were very busy lately working our new release.

    I assume you are refering to your forum post from 6 months ago:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/map-not-loading-22/ – our offer was to have a look at your theme on a test site. If you have no test site, you can send your theme to us by email and we can try to reproduce the issue – anyway it is difficult to analyse the problem without a test site (or admin access).

    regarding data loss on downgrade: too bad to hear this – not sure what happend here – no data is deleted by our plugins when switching between pro and free version. The data is stored in the tables wp_leafletmapsmarker_markers and wp_leafletmapsmarker_layers and when downgrading from pro to free, only 1 column (layers) needs to be modified – you should have been seeing an admin notice with the info about this and a link to start this conversion. If you do not convert your database by following the link when downgrading from pro version, markers on layer maps may not be visible (they still exist in the database though).

    regarding icons: not sure what you are talking about: free and pro version include the same set of icons by default & you do not have to download icons per set. If you want to add new icons, you can pick those for example from the Map Icons Collections at https://mapicons.mapsmarker.com and upload the files to your map icon directory, usually located at /wp-content/uploads/leaflet-maps-marker-icons/ – that´s all that is needed. So in case the icons seem to be gone, first check if the files are available in the icon directory. If not, it could be that the related icons settings were changed (you can set a custom icon dir/url) and this resulted in icons not being shown.

    Anyway we are sorry that you had a bad experience with our products – I will send you a free pro license key as compensation.

    If you need any further help, let me know!

    best,

    Robert
