Support » Plugin: GEO my WordPress » Checks all the boxes – Supports Custom Post Types, Flexible, Easy, Efficient

  • Fantastic plugin! Thank you very much for providing this.

    I currently admin only one website, for a small club to which I belong. The website budget is very limited, so free plugins are a must. I tried 3 or 4 free geo-mapping plugins. Each provided some features the others did not, so I had to choose the best overall for my needs. The winner was Geo my WP.

    a) Custom Post Types and Taxonomies are supported. I am using Pods for both. WP my WP integrates with Pods seamlessly.

    b) It is flexible enough to get most of the results I wanted. It didn’t take very long, and I did it without needing to resort to the external documentation. The notes in the admin area are sufficient to explain the UI, which is easy to understand and configure. Kudos.

    c) I am using the LeafLet option. Adding locations is easier than the other plugins I tried that use OpenStreetMap / Leaflet. You can enter the name of a location in the address field (e.g. “New York Metropolitan Museum”). I find this easier than entering the address. It found the site far more often than I would have imagined. I entered the names of some very small and obscure museums, and it knew of almost all of them. Though the data must come from the shared mapping engine, this did not work as well with the other plugins I tried. Perhaps something about how the different plugins pass the data to LeafLet.

    d) I like using the scroll wheel for zoom. With the other plugins the wheel would zoom the entire page rather than just the map, or it was not even an option (had to click on +/- buttons).

    I wish there were an option to display the excerpt instead of the address, in the balloon you get when click on a map marker. I get the impression this is possible with the premium add-on. It’s free in some other plugins, but overall Geo my WP works best for me, so I had to let that feature go. One can’t expect everything for free, so still 5-stars.

    Thanks again.

    @hrsms Thanks for the review but please keep it to your words here only. No links or links to images. That’s not permitted in reviews and I have removed yours.

    Thank you so much, @hrsms, for taking the time to post this detailed feedback. I appreciated it greatly.

    Regarding the excerpt in the info-window, yes, this can be done using the Premium Settings extension. But it can also be done with custom coding. There are some filters that allow you to modify the content of the info-window.

    I can provide you with more details if you open a new support ticket regarding this matter.

    Thanks again.
