    Waxfrogdesign: Looks great! How does it work for you? Have you been able to make it so that your WPUF form has an address field and MapPress shows a map next to it that is updated when the address is changed?

    http://s.wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mappress-google-maps-for-wordpress/screenshot-2.jpg looks like that would be possible. I'm giving it a try immediately.

    Update: Those settings are available only in the Pro version. Any free solutions available?

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-street-view-map-custom-field/ supports this and is free, but requires a Google Maps API key. I left feedback asking if it could be updated to use the new API that doesn't require a key.

    Did anyone get this to work with WPUF and MapPress?

    Or did anyone figure out another way to get map functionality with WPUF? I am trying to get markers put on a map based on custom address fields in my form.

    Not sure if this helps you, but Gravity Forms is a powerful option to create posts. But it isn't free. I use a GF post body field and insert merge tags into the content template. My post includes a link that pulls from the user input fields. Looks something like this.

    <a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q={Company address (Street Address):14.1}+{Company address (City):14.3},+{Company address (State / Province):14.4}+{Company address (Zip / Postal Code):14.5}+United+States" target="_blank">Map it!</a>

    The same process may work for WPUF. Just find a way to get the address values into the URL and pass it to Google Maps.
