Tabify Edit Screen
Only one Google map tile displaying at a time for WP Geo in post edit (3 posts)

    Obviously the problem could be with WP Geo but I thought I should register the issue here:

    WP Geo shows a map in the post edit screen so you can easily click and drop in a pointer or type in lat lon manually.

    I set up a tab in Tabify and moved the WP Geo metabox to it.

    In the post edit screen the map appears but only shows one Google map tile at a time to the left of the map area - the rest is just a grey background.

    I can drag the map a around so new tiles appear but only one at a time and in the same part of the map area.

    Disabling tabs on my posts returns everything to normal.

    Yes, there is an issue with Google maps in general - if they are initially hidden from view not all tiles are loaded.

    It should be possible to call a function to refresh the map if it's possible to detect when a tab is clicked.

    I'm currently working on moving the plugin to use v3 of the Google API. It may be that that works better. If not I'll look further into it after that.

    Probably the issue will fade away when it's on the first tab. Little bit of the same issue with TinyMCE. That one also can do weird things when it was hidden on load.

    I will look into it how I can somehow solve it. Maybe there is a way to detect google maps and refresh on reload. But I guess the best way is that I implement a jQuery trigger that plugins can listen to.
