    Hi guys, currently using the EPL plugin and finding it very good. Just one issue, when my page loads the map fails, also the lightbox. However when I click the thumbnail image (it loads into a new window) and go back, the lightbox and map are loaded perfectly.

    Any suggestions on a fix for for first load image gallery and map?

    Thanks

    Could be due to you not saving the coordinates after adding the address. Basically if you forget to, on first load the plugin will generate the coordinates and update your Lat/long. So on second load it uses the saved coordinates.

    Basically after adding a listing address make sure you press the coordinate generate button then publish your listing

    Just tried it and still no change. If I Update and preview the page after editing all is fine, map and gallery loaded. However if I go to another listing or try load up the same listing again the gallery thumbs load, but not the map, and the lightbox effect is disabled.

    On a force refresh everything is loaded fine.

    Thanks

    Just returned from break overseas, will look into this request again for you.

    Hello,

    I have a similar problem. Map is not rendering. For me the gallery lightbox works fine, but none of the maps show. I have deleted and added again the address, click on the coordinate generate button several times. Create a new property. Nothing works.

    This happens in other sites I know use this plugin.

    If I resize the page to 1024px wide or less the map shows ok

    you can see an image of the problem in the following link

    Hope this help

    Often it is related to another theme or plugin that also adds the Google Maps API which causes map issues.

    Our Google Map API can be disabled with a function. We are adding this as an option to settings. Some themes and plugins do not have an option to disable the maps api even if the map is only used on a single page.

    To disable the Easy Property Listings google maps api add this to your theme functions file.

    <?php
    function my_epl_disable_google_maps_api() {
    	wp_dequeue_script('google-map-v-3');
    }
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_epl_disable_google_maps_api', 5, 3 );
    ?>

    Hello,

    I did add the previous code to the theme functions.php, the problem persist.

    As I said before, this happens in several sites, I have access, that use this plugin.

    If I resize the browser to less than 1000 pixel wide the maps render just fine.

    Chrome console shows no error

    I can’t even see the map, can you provide WordPress login details via a support ticket here. Something strange going on here…

    Thanks for helping diagnose the map issue. It is due to theme CSS causing the map image tile to disappear and causes issues with the icons. We are going to add stricter map CSS to the plugin but in the meantime until 2.3.2 is released you can add this to your theme CSS.

    #epl-default-map .gm-style img {
        max-width: none !important;
    }

    Merv,

    Great plugin, but I have been trying unsuccessfully to submit support requests. It says there will be a confirming email, no such email arrives. I have tried every which way to contact you, via FB, Youtube, etc.,

    Here is my problem: I have a development company building a site using the plugin (had I known about some of the real estate sites you recommend, I’d have gone with that, alas) and any rate, this is an economic development site for a city. We are posting listings of commercial real estate, two types: manufacturing and warehouse, and we want two corresponding pins on the map. I’ve purchased the professional developer package and I have given them the shortcodes for advanced mapping.

    They are claiming that the post type only allows for one pin. That you cannot differentiate between one type of property and another. They wanted to also post using “rentals” but “rentals” is for residential, not commercial and so the listing criteria is very different.

    What can I direct them to do in order to have two or even three different type of property pins, according to the property type?

    Sorry about the support form issue, we are pretty certain that it works. Can you try to submit your request again and take a screen shot of the form of it does not let you submit it so we can fix the issue.

    Thanks for purchasing the developer bundle for Easy Property Listings.

    Did we connect on Facebook? unsure of your email address/name.

    The advanced map shortcode can display all post types in a single map with approx 300-400 pins.

    Try using this shortcode for commercial:

    [advanced_map post_type="commercial"]

    And for multiple post types use:

    [advanced_map post_type="property,rental,commercial"]

    Merv,

    I have been requesting and requesting for a year. Please please can you oblige this causes me so much grief that I am ready to dump the plugin . ALLOW OVERRIDE WITH CO ORDINATES so Co Ordinates are defaulted. My addresses are in Colombia and they do not have the desired effect entering an address.

    Try Calle Odiseo, Cartagena, BolĂ­var, Colombia with Google maps then try it with yours. Your co ordinates produce the wrong location. It simply cannot find it. Try it and see.

    Mark
