Support » Plugin: Basic Google Maps Placemarks » Geocode issue

  • Hello everyone (and especially Ian of course)

    I have a little problem.
    I downloaded the last version of BGMP and it works fine.
    Then, I decided to use the csv mass import trick
    As it said in that topic, you have to update your placemark to make de geocode works…and it doesn’t !!
    I have that kind of message “That address couldn’t be geocoded, please make sure that it’s correct”
    Even worse, every new placemark I created after that had this geocode issue, and it’s the same when I wanted to change the address that the map should be centered on, in the admin panel.

    Even even worth (yeah…it was a bad day !), when I uninstall the plugin and re-install it, it’s all the same–>geocode issue
    I cleaned up my database (post, option, taxonomy), but there must be something I always forgot.
    Can someone tell me how to totally wipeout this plugin from my database
    (where can I find any relation to this plugin) so I could re-install and make it works.

    Maybe in the next version, a database cleaner shouldbe a good idea.

    Does it give you any additional error messages? Sometimes Google will block your geocode requests if you make too many, or if there’s another site on the same server that’s abusing the service. It should show you some extra error messages when that happens, though.

    You could also try using coordinates to work around it. See the FAQ for details.

    The remove the posts, just delete them like your normally would. Make sure you delete them from the “Trash”, too.

    There’s currently no way to delete the settings through the plugin, but you could use something like phpMyAdmin to delete anything in the wp_options table that starts with ‘bgmp_’

    Has anyone figured out a way to UPDATE all placemarks after an import to create the geocodes?
