Support » Plugin: Simple Google Maps Shortcode » Map doesn't catch the right position

  • First of all, I really like the simplicity of your plugin. I don’t need more options then just show a small map within an article. But I couldn’t figure out, how to type in an address more exactly, if it’s not the right one, at the first try.

    I’m trying to show the address of the restaurant: Nomiya at “Wörthstraße 7, 81667 München”.
    The output is: Wörthstraße 7 in Würzburg
    Link: Nomiya (

    I tried to type in the address in many different orders, but didn’t get the right results. Is there any possibility I didn’t see yet?

    How much is the position off by?

    The problem is not that the accuracy is to bad, it’s the same street name in another city. Seems that the plugin doesn’t process the whole input of the shortcode.

    Howdy All!

    @maxgr — Hi. Thank you for writing the forums.

    I did an initial test with that address, in the form of this tag, and it seemed to work ok for me. I Included link to screenshot below of the address how I typed it, and of the resulting map. Can you see anything in the two screenshots that might be different than the way you did it?

    Here’s how I typed the tag:
    [pw_map address="Wörthstraße 7, 81667 München"]

    Links to descriptive screenshots:
    “2015-11-23 2139 text typed.png” ( )

    “2015-11-23 2139 resulting map.png” ( )

    Thanks for all the replies! The only difference was, that I typed in “Munich” instead of “München”. Now, everything works fine.

    Thanks! 🙂

    @maxgr thanks for writing back to tell what turned out to be the problem! I’m glad that solved it.
