Hi Ian, really love the plugin.
Just one thing, i have a client who wants to list all of their dealers, but they don’t want to show the pop up and give the information of their names. Is their anyway to disable the pop up altogether?
Hi Dan, the plugin doesn’t support that right now, but I may add an option in the future if enough people ask for it.
In the mean time, you can do it manually by editing the functions.js file and commenting out the line that says
infowindow.open(map, marker);(line 169 in version 1.4).
Love this plugin. When I click on the placemark and it opens the popup, How do I get it to close again?
There should be an X in the upper right-hand corner that you can click on. If it’s not showing up, post the URL of the page on your site that has the map and I’ll take a look.
Here is the page, It looks like there must be an x there, but it has a white font and can’t be seen.
Do I change the font color for the x?
I have a similar problem, but with a different Google map placemark plug-in, which is why I am in the process of switching to Ian’s plug-in since it doesn’t exhibit the problem.
As you can see from this example page (scroll down to below the graph), if you click on any placemarker the pop-up box looks almost identical to Evelyn’s (including the dirty smears at the bottom of the box and just outside the box, and the inability to close the box). If you click on a second and subsequent placemarker then the preceding box closes but there is no way you can close the final info box (short of refreshing the page).
You’ll also see that my map has further problems which Evelyn’s fortunately doesn’t exhibit – the scroll ladder is obscured (but still works if you manage to position your mouse in the right spot) and there are regular vertical grey bars on the map (no info is lost in the gaps, the edges have just been “pushed apart”).
I’m just posting regarding Evelyn’s issue particularly with the info box (which looks identical to my issue with a different plug-in) in the hope that it might help Ian track down Evelyn’s issue.
evelynf and Ridgididgi, both of your problems are caused by a max-width property from your theme’s stylesheet affecting the map.
You can try editing the style.css file in the plugin’s folder and changing line 49 from
max-width: none !important;
Thank you! That fixed it.
I guess any future update of the plugin will
include this? Or will an update overwrite the
css file I changed?
Thanks for your troubleshooting and advice.
Although my theme uses the max-width property I don’t actually have any display issues with your plug-in so I haven’t needed to modify your style.css file.
I had a look in the files for my other map plug-in but couldn’t readily see where I could put a “max-width: none” rule and after a while playing with possibilities I gave up in favour of concentrating my efforts on continuing the migration to your plug-in.
Then I can just go back to waiting anxiously for the next version which will include shortcode arguments to specify the map center and zoom, so that my individual maps don’t all have to start from the one view 🙂
