WP Google Maps
[resolved] mysql deprecation (5 posts)

    Line 4383 (wpgmaps_filter()) uses mysql_real_escape_string which is no longer required to be available as of WordPress 3.9 and discouraged/ deprecated as of PHP 5.5.
    Not sure where or if the function wpgmaps_filter() is called.

    Should rather use esc_sql() or $wpdb for escaping.

    Hi
    Thank you for picking this up! We completely missed it.
    We'll amend and update the plugin as soon as possible.

    Kind regards
    Nick

    Was not resolved on last update. Please fix this to no longer break PHP 5.5 installs without the deprecated mysql extension.
