I have the pro version. It's freaking amazing. That's all you need to know. I'm kidding.
First, you can drag and drop a marker on a Google Map. How fun. You add your content to the marker and call it a day. The plugin does the rest. This is an awesome plugin and I recommend it to everyone.
I have some problem moving the maps between the local and the real host, buty is the first map i found that is working without problem.
The desiderata could be a map resize when it is shown on a mobile with a little screen instead of showing only a section.
This plugin has blown my mind.
The availability of options and flexility are amazing.
I purchased a copy of the Pro version for a client site and sat down at 9pm last night to have a quick 30 minute look at it before going to bed.
The next thing I knew it was 2am and I had a site online with a mashup map pulling location data from photographs stored in a custom post type. Visitors to the site can click on a map, view all the photo locations, zoom in and click on map markers to see an info-box showing the featured photograph and the associated summary.
From a client perspective adding location data to posts and custom post types is a breeze. Initially I created my own longitude and latitude custom fields in WP-Types and mapped them to the longitude and lattidue in the Maps Builder mashup settings. That worked great.
But then I realised that I didn't need to do this at all because the Maps Builder Pro settings have an option to include a Maps Builder metabox on posts, pages, custom post types etc. You can enter the longitude, latitude and address directly. This is fantastic for sites that don't need custom post types but want to associate map / location data with pages and posts.
The level of care and detail that have gone into creating this plugin is amazing and I'm looking forward to additional features and functionality. I've already put in a couple of feature requests.
Thanks Matt & Devin!
I needed this plugin for a nice greyscale map for this website: [Link redacted]
Work really well.
I'm using the Free version, but still got great support about how to give the map the right height & width.
Thanks again Devin!
Great plugin, however I wonder that, can I use my own map image and place markers on it?
Thanks, pluign works well, easy configured and allow add html + images to pins ☺
This is the most intuitive and easy to use Google Maps plugin I've tested so far. Anyway, there are some bugs and at the time writing the review, the last update of the plugin is about 6 months ago.
e.g. There are "<" chars appearing under my pins. The edit/delete marker buttons are invisible and can only be found moving the mouse cursor inside the tooltip and hope you see the output of the buttons title attribute.
Also, when changing the marker icon, the "set marker" buttons does not appear. I have to check the default marker first to make the button appear and then change back to the custom marker.
I Update my previous review:
Don't use this plugin until it's updated. I could delete all your markers and you have to start from scratch.
The plugin is very nice and offers a lot of easy-to-configure options... The problem is everytime you update WP or some themes it stops working and the support doesn't exist anymore. I had to delete it and install another similar plugin instead... Too bad :(
I suspected that this plug-in is abandoned, it is no longer on the author's site.
I wanted information because I can not remove my markers, but I can find no documentation.
[Edit : Plus one star for the speed replying ;)]
Slick interface, ability to define multiple maps, markers, set custom icons. One thing I'm missing (but to be fair it's missing in almost all other plugins) is the ability to auto open marker descriptions.
