[Plugin: Stupid Simple Google Maps] Bing option?

    To be honest, I hadn’t even considered adding support for Bing Maps. The Bing API isn’t anywhere near as developer friendly, so I’d have to set up an entire admin panel for maintaining API keys, it goes against the simplicity I was trying to achieve with this plugin.

    If Bing ever streamlines their API, or if it turns out that there is a lot of demand for the feature, it might make it’s way in as a feature, but I can’t see it happening anytime soon, sorry.

    Thank you for your input though. I do want to make this as useful a plugin for as many people as possible.

    Thanks for the reply. I did chuckle when I read it. Don’t get me wrong, the chuckle was not directed at you at all!! I just find the differences of opinions comical. I spoke to a developer last week who prefers the “more modern” Bing API (see why I chuckled??). He went on aboout the ability to create Bing map apps, street slide, etc… He lost me quickly.

    That is funny. I guess it just comes down to preference. I prefer the simplicity of the Google API to the functionality of the Bing API.
