thank you very much

Pure Brilliance!!!
By , for WP 4.1

Just made another theme with underscores and used this plugin to display a map in a footer widget. Followed the instructions, dropped a couple of lines in the functions file and hey presto, it works!!

Sooooo much easier than messing around for hours and hours trying to do it manually with Google API and all that bla bla bla. No matter what they say, doing maps is NEVER easy ... unless you use this plugin.

Great work Ian (I think that's your name) and thanks for sharing :-)

Cheers mate

Needs responsive scripting
By , for WP 4.1

This a five-star plugin with one, small hiccup. It is NOT written with a responsive script. Once this is changed, it'll be top-notch. Something I would definitely pay for (or donate to the author)!

Almost perfect - wanted: mobile friendliness
By , for WP 4.0

I really like this plugin. Most Google Maps plugins are way over the top and complicated, this one is a clear example of how a plugin should function. Only thing is that this plugin isn't mobile friendly. With css-overrides this is solvable but it would be nicer that the plugin in its default respects multiple devices.

This plug-in was amazingly easy to install and edit. All accomplished via the visual tab and no need to do coding via the text tab. Setting locations was easy as well, just need a postcode, no Lat. and Long. required.

A lot of flexibility and simple to use
By , for WP 4.0

We're using multiple maps with many, many markers and it looks great. It's a deceptively simple but very powerful plugin. We're not techies and were able to get it up and running and then change what content was displayed in the lists, used the stacking order to sort the lists, changed the marker flag and changed the styling.

Ian Dunn's documentation is clear and gave us all the hints and steps we needed to get it working.

Very Good!
