Easily embed and customize Google maps on your WordPress site - in posts, pages or as an easy to use widget.
I needed a simple google map for my website. There are many out there, but this one seemed to be the best based on download and update statistics. I spent quite a while refining the look, which initially was pretty ugly. When I updated from WordPress 4.0.1 to 4.1, its dashboard controls stopped working in both versions. I received no response from the plugin developer. Perhaps there will be a response, but when you need a map, you need a map. So I am moving on to another. Several others do seem to work well and they are a little more neutral-looking out of the box.
I agree with the previous post: if you are offering a plugin for free, you get 2 stars at least, for effort.
Using the twenty-thirteen theme as a base the widget of this plugin worked very impermanently - it showed up fine initially. However, suddenly it did not display anything in the site frontend although the widget content had not been altered.
Well, that's my experience. I know this is a free version, but what I wanted was quite simple (1 map generated based on 1 address) and I am a little frustrated of doing occasional bug testing plugins for developers who market their freebies as working.
So am adding an extra star for the effort of this offered as free - that's as good as it will get for me as I don't want to waste more time, so moving on to something stable...
Very useful plugin.
This plugin gave me great control over google maps.
Very flexible, the shortcodes are great!
Very easy to use - it simply works
Super easy to use, and works great too! Works well each and every time.
I've used this on several sites for myself and for clients, works perfectly and it's easy to use.
Setup is a breeze, and it simply works.
