Query re general settings "Show Maps On" options (7 posts)

    I'm guessing that checking or unchecking these options is meant to allow/disallow the appearance of the map on a given page.

    So far, for me at least, this option only seems to have any effect on Pages

    Yes, that's what it's supposed to do.

    From memory I think it only affects where a map shows against a post - it doesn't affect widgets etc.

    Does that fit in with what you are seeing?

    OK so my expectation was that checking the following options would control whether or not the maps (not widget maps) appeared on the following types of content:

    Posts (single posts)
    Posts home page
    Posts in date archives
    Posts in category archives
    Posts in tag archives
    Posts in taxonomy archives
    Posts in author archives
    Search Results

    For me only checking Pages has any effect on this. The rest display maps regardless of whether they are checked or not.

    Thanks, I'll test this further.

    Do you have your settings set to automatically show maps at the top/bottom of posts, or are you embedding them with a shortcode?

    Cheers Ben

    I've just been using the option for top/bottom so far, which seems to be all I need for now.

    I really like the plugin btw - the ability to set a default zoom is very useful. Good balance between number of options and usability.

    Thanks, I dislike too many options too so I tried to keep to a minimum. The next major version will be much easier to extend so that additional niche functionality can be added via seperate plugins rather that cluttering the main one.

    With set up some tests for the issue you're having and see if I can replicate...

    Just an update - I set up custom post types (which is really what I want to use the plugin for). Checking and un-checking does work for this one option.

    To recap: so far the options only work for pages and custom post types
