Default location and zoom level in shortcode (3 posts)

    There's a couple of issue with the use of the shortcode rendering of the map.

    The settings page does not change the default location of the shortcode map and it also does not change the default zoom levels.

    I've done some hardcoding fixes for the issues but the plugin database i8nteractions may need to be looked into.

    If anyone is not worried about hacking the plugin code to personalise the shortcode map then I've done a step by step mod blog post at http://ypraise.com/2012/08/shortcode-issues-with-the-sightings-wordpress-plugin/

    I've also just done a blog on how to fix the shortcode issue of always dispalying at the top of the post and not where you place the shortcode.

    It's a step by step guide to a pretty easy fix if you don't mind hacking a file.

    I've also provided example code to add another shortcode that is very basic and dispaly a map for use in a text widget that does not allow people to plot a location.
