    Hi! I have a few doubts, I’m a bit shy because they are really basic, but… here they go. 😛

    Would it be possible to add a map as background to a WordPress template like this? Fullscreen Template

    What happens if my site, by any chance, gets a huge number of visits unexpectedly? I know OSM has supporters taking care of the hosting, but now that even Google is charging large websites in order to use their Maps API, I still can’t believe how OSM remains totally free! 😀 I mean, I know it sounds naïve to think about so many visits, even before creating your site, it´s just a curiosity.

    Where is the data of my markers stored? At my server? Does it mean I can create backups of the file whenever I want?

    I know you can make the markers appear at a determined zoom level, but would it be possible to change the icon regarding the zoom? For example, if you search for restaurants at New York using Google Maps, there are so many that instead of the normal marker, they are represented with little red circles until you zoom in. Is this possible with MapsMarker?

    Thanks for the help and thanks for the plugin!

    Hi Elias,

    ad map as background image: you can add a map to your template file by adding php-code to the file you want to add the map to. See this page for details. Altough displaying the map link in your example would be a bit tricky.

    ad huge numbers of visitors: by now OSM remains free as it is with Wikipedia. There are some limitations, specially if someone is abusing their service, but if you want to get more details about their TOS, please consult their wiki pages.

    ad storing location data: this is one of the main advantages of the Leaflet Maps Marker plugin: the location data gets stored in your WordPress database (two tables: wp_leafletmapsmarker_markers and wp_leafletmapsmarker_layers).

    Ad zoom level: clustering of markers is currently not supported. If you want to contribute this feature, please feel free to fork the code for the plugin on github and send me some pull requests 😉


    Wow, thanks for the quick answer Robert.

    About the map in the background, I don´t know nothing about PHP, so I will pay someone to add the necessary code.

    I dont like to wait either 😉

    it would be great if you could share the code for the map in the background if it is working 😉
