    Hello,

    once again, thank you for a great plugin. Using it on two websites.

    It has appeared to me that the text area in a pop up has the same height, irrelevant of how much text is produced. Is this right or am I doing something wrong? Right now I scroll a lot to read the full text. I´ve tried CSS but haven´t got it to work.

    Thank you

    Regards

    Hi David,

    Very glad to hear Waymark is working for you.

    It has appeared to me that the text area in a pop up has the same height, irrelevant of how much text is produced. Is this right or am I doing something wrong? Right now I scroll a lot to read the full text. I´ve tried CSS but haven´t got it to work.

    Yes this is the expected behavior (and was a bit of a compromise to suit devices with smaller screens). You can adjust the maximum height for the description output using this CSS:

    ul.waymark-info li.waymark-info-description {
        max-height: <desired_height>px !important; /* Default is 72px */
    }

    Thanks for reaching out. Suggestions are always welcome and if you have any interest in testing beta releases please feel free to check out the next version here:

    https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/waymark.0.9.10-b3.zip

    (I do not recommend testing on a production site and if you do always create a backup first!)

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hey again,

    like clockwork 🙂 I thought all text areas would get the same size (with some empty white area), but no. Both on computer and mobile, the text area adjusts according to the amount of text, even if a large area like 1000px is typed in the CSS you shared. The scrolling disappears. Thank you!

    I would be happy to BETA-test. Are the files uploaded as a plugin?

    Hi David,

    I’m glad to hear that worked for you 🙂

    I would be happy to BETA-test. Are the files uploaded as a plugin?

    Great, thanks 🙂 Yes, the beta version of the plugin is downloadable as a Zip (which needs to be manually installed). The easiest way to download the latest beta is to go the plugin’s “Advanced” page, scroll to the bottom and download the “Development Version”:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/waymark/advanced/

    As previously mentioned, if you are going to try out a beta version I do not recommend testing on a production site and if you do always create a full backup first!

    Either way thanks for reaching out.

    All the best,

    Joe

    Hello again,

    I tested it a bit before and the only thing I came across while trying things was that when adding multiple, for example, squares, the title and text added to the first square followed to the next square. Meaning, the second, third, fourth and so on was not empty when adding them to the map. This might also occur when adding circles and other objects.

    Suggestions:
    – Option to add video in the pop-up instead of an image.
    – Option to duplicate a map.
    – Making objects on the map date-sensitive.

    Pros:
    – To be able to edit the pop-up text through text editor/html.

    🙂

    Hi David,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    when adding multiple, for example, squares, the title and text added to the first square followed to the next square.

    Yes I see this too, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will aim to get this fixed in the next release.

    Option to add video in the pop-up instead of an image.

    You should be able to embed a video within the description field, as HTML tags are supported. Let me know if this is not the case for you. I will definitely give some more thought to a nicer video integration though.

    Option to duplicate a map.

    Great suggestion! I have considered this too and will aim to add this feature in the near future.

    Making objects on the map date-sensitive.

    To be able to edit the pop-up text through text editor/html.

    Could you provide some further details on these? I’m not sure I follow.

    If you would be willing to test future versions, please feel free to send me a message here so we can connect via email.

    Thanks again!

    Joe

    Hello,

    “Making objects on the map date-sensitive”. Just a thought of being able to set date and time in a calender for certain inputs. Meaning they are visible a certain time period of the year, and not in others. Was not really sure where I was heading, but if there is much information on a map, it could help sort things for the reader, as well for purposes of seasons, tourist trips.

    “To be able to edit the pop-up text through text editor/html”. It was just an opinion – a good feature. Perhaps it´s possible to use the Rich editor to insert images and videos.

    Another suggestion is to be able to categorize inputs in more detail. The color options are however really great. Categorizing inputs is however possible to do externally, with a reference to the map.

    Thank you for a great plugin.

    /David
