Support » Plugin: Basic Google Maps Placemarks » Incompatibility Between BGMP 1.9.3-rc1 and JetPack 2.0.4

  • Resolved Gillian


    Hi Ian

    First and foremost, Happy New Year πŸ™‚

    The maps on both my sites suddenly stopped loading – the “loading” graphic didn’t even appear. I changed themes to three different WordPress default themes but it didn’t make any difference.

    I then followed the usual troubleshooting technique of deactivating all plug-ins except BGMP (which made the maps load again), and then reactivating them one by one until I found the culprit.

    I found it was a new component of JetPack that was introduced with the latest version (2.0.4), namely, Publicize. Deactivating Publicize results in the maps loading again.

    I tested further and found that BGMP 1.8 works fine with Publicize activated, which is why I have concluded the problem lies in an interaction between BGMP 1.9.3-rc1 and the Publicize component of JetPack 2.0.4.

    Hoping this helps someone.

    Thanks for the detailed report Gillian, and happy New Year πŸ™‚

    I was able to reproduce that. It looks like maybe Jetpack is stripping the [bgmp-map] shortcode out of the content when the page is generated. I had to disabled both Publicize and Sharing in order for BGMP to work.

    It looks like Jetpack is causing problems with a lot of plugins. (1, 2, 3, etc).

    I’ve spent about 2 hours this morning digging into it, but haven’t found the specific source of the problem yet. I’ll keep working on it, but don’t have any more time today.

    Ok, I discovered that this is caused by a bug in Jetpack. See Timperator’s post in this thread for a workaround until Automattic fixes it.

    The reason it affects 1.9.x and not 1.8 is because 1.8 accesses $post->content directly, instead of using the_content(), so the filters that hook to the_content aren’t being applied. Accessing $post directly is a bad practice, though, which is why I changed it in 1.9.x. But unfortunately that makes it susceptible to the Jetpack bug.

    Er, nevermind, it turns out this is a bug with BGMP and not Jetpack. I’ll fix it for 1.9.3-RC2.

    At least I’m glad I didn’t waste your time, and it really was a bug πŸ™‚

    Sorry I didn’t realise that the Sharing component of JetPack also needed to be disabled (because I already had it disabled on my sites).

    1.9.3-rc2 is now available, which should fix this.
