A simple short code for embedding Google Maps in any WordPress post or page.
I've just tested and tried to use 3 different map plugins this week - one slowed down the entire site, one was buggy and I lost my control panel for awhile, and the last I couldn't even create a marker for a map.
This plugin is about as clean and simple as it comes, and there is NO slowing down of the site. Wasted much time lately working with plugins that just didn't work, and this is just a shortcode of google maps that you input yourself.
You can change how it comes up (the look), too, in the shortcode (width, height, etc.)
Works like a charm. Many thanks to the creator of this plugin.
For most of my clients I just needed a single googlemaps with a pointer ,finally I found this one, great work pippin, thanks a lot!
I tried to change the initial zoom level by adding zoom="5" to the shortcode but the it is hardcoded as 15. A small hack to the plugin code seems to do the trick:
zoom: <?php echo $atts['zoom']; ?>
but this would be better if it was built-in anyway?
thanks for this plugin
what about specifying the width and height of the iframe can a value be passed?
How can I say more?
It just works simply.
Wow, I had spent 2 hours trying to get the latest Google Maps https// insertion of iframe code to work and it just kept failing. All sorts of advice on forum re 'how to' until I found the post about this code plugin - BINGO problem solved in 5 mins.!!!!
Many thanks Dennis
PS:- being a little short on understanding shortcodes....can I just suggest that as my focus was on the 'html' coding insertion, I got a little lost with what to put in for "my address". I was trying to force the Google html code, then a light flashed, OOPS - All I had to do was place the actual street address!!!
[pw_map address="actual street address, State"]
Tried four Google Maps plugins before yours. This is exactly what I needed. My only suggestion is to add a zoom option to the short code. :)
I tried several GoogleMap plugins. This one does exactly what is described. No errors or warnings like other plugins. Great.
Simple and easy to use. I totally recommend it. Great work!
