  • I spent the afternoon studying the plugin’s code.

    It might be easy to implement, I mean, the way I see it 🙂

    We need to add a new rule in case both LAYER and MARKER are mentioned into the short code.

    if (!empty($layer) and !empty($marker))

    In that particular case, it should return (show) the map using the LAYER’s specs and setting the setView() function to the MARKER’s $lon = $row['lon'] and $lat = $row['lat'].

    Sound easy to do. I’ll happily do it myself, unfortunately, my knowledge in coding is read only 🙂 I can read stuff, variables and functions and understand what they do but I can’t really code them on my own 🙁

    I still dont get the usease behind your idea – what are you trying to achieve?

    Focusing on a particular spot, while allowing people to see that there’s other locations with the same occupation or service.

    why not put all markers you want the user to see into a layer map?

    It’s a bit hard to explain 🙂

    Let’s say that you are reviewing restaurants in a particular city, London for example. You can organize types of restaurants and classes into MapsMaker layers.

    Reviews about each restaurant goes into a WordPress post (SEO oblige), with a map showing its location. It will let people see the reviewed restaurant and discover other spots at the same time (same type / standing / same layer), without having to go to a layer specific page to see everything.

    The centered marker will be the current restaurant reviewed, and the others will show up around it.

    Hope you get the idea 🙂

    I would be interested in that too!
