This plugin is terrible. Extremely difficult to use, after you've figured everything out, and put in the details of your map and marker, it shows up blank on the front end of the site. Just absolutely terrible. It's really beyond me how this plugin got 4.9 stars out of 5 when I wasted over 4 hours trying to configure it to no avail. Deleted it and used MapPress instead. Much much better.
Everywhere you're looking, you'll find a note (big orange note) saying you should buy PRO version.
Everywhere you put shortcode a note "supported by..." with link to plugin page will be added.
A lot of clutter, a lot of useless options, a lot of stuff done without understanding how WordPress works.
After weeks of research, and going through recommended Store Locator plugins one by one, and even going so far as to purchase Mapify, only to be awarded an incomplete folder (no plugin zip file!), you'd think I'd have learned my lesson about paying for plugins, but NOPE.
I downloaded the free LITE version of this plugin only to discover that Store Location markers cannot be clustered on the map itself; rather, the LITE version allows only a listing of retail outlets below the map ,along with 3 icons the customer must figure out, and then click to find a store, get directions, whatever. What kind of Store Locator plugin doesn't allow for Store Locator Markers!! If you want those markers - pretty much the reason you'd be installing the plugin in the fist place - you have to upgrade to the "Pro" version.
So ok, out of total frustration with what should be a very easy task, I gave in and hit the "Free Trial Upgrade to Pro" up-sell tool, tried to register for the stupid 30-day trial licence, and ka-BOOM! Stupid thing crashed.
A Store Locator plugin that forces you to PAY for markers - really? That tactic really, really sucks.
I de-activated all other plugins and then installed this one. After attempting to activate it, my screen went blank and could not access my WP dashboard.
The only way I recovered was by deleting the plugin folder using cpanel.
Really? It looked so promising.
It's cluttering the wordpress interface with all sorts of crap and it's trying to sell you the PRO version on every step.
I'm very disappointed with this piece of software.
