Support » Plugin: Basic Google Maps Placemarks » Map disappearing after WP4.4 update

  • Resolved froddis


    Hi Ian,
    We’ve just noticed something odd after updating a couple of our sites to WordPress 4.4. Our BGMP shortcode doesn’t appear to be working anymore and is showing on the front end instead of the map.

    I wanted to test that it was indeed the 4.4 update that was the change and managed to recreate this issue there after only updating WP.

    Is there a way we can fix this?

    Thank you in advance!

    It’s working for me, can you post a link to each mapping that isn’t working?

    Also, does it work if you temporarily disable all other plugins, and switch to one of the default themes?

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks you for taking the time to look at this. You can go to our test site, you just need a domain username and password:

    We have quite a few maps but here are a couple that aren’t working:

    When we go to the “view source” we see the shortcode and not <div id=”bgmp_map-canvas”> when the maps are working with WP4.3.1

    I’ve deactivated all plugins except for BGMP and also reverted back to the basic Genesis Framework theme and I’m still getting the same result.
    Thank you!

    Hi Ian,

    Just a quick update – I’ve been doing some testing in our test site and it looks like the issue is with the quote marks in WordPress. The old shortcode quote marks are angling towards the = sign instead of the shortcode content.

    i.e. [bgmp-map categories=”scotland-south-west-region-golf” center=”dreghorn” zoom=”9″]

    I’m going to close this ticket as I don’t believe it’s an issue with placemarks but instead with WP and the text editor.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Sorry, meant to close this with the last update 🙂
