Server Requests

Altough plugin works as described author forgot to mention that it creates 40 (forty) additional server requests which is a red flag for anyone concerned with loading speed.

Zoom level issue
By , for WP 3.8.1

Can you add a simple text box or dropbox to add the zoom level to your map? It's a simple but necesary option.

Free version doesn't work for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

Everytime I add a point to the map I receive a database error saying there is no default value for the category field.

How do you give it zero stars?
By , for WP 3.8.1

I downloaded, uploaded, extracted and installed; I even paid the $15 to upgrade to the pro version.

And it immediately crashed - not just the page where the widget was supposed to be imbedded - but the whole site! None of the links work, leaving my business site useless and worse than worthless: it makes me look incompetent.

If you have a professional website, stay away from this plugin. It's a killer.

Useless
By , for WP 3.8.1

Free version is useless. You can't do anything with it. I want my 5 minutes back it took me to figure it out.

Useless for free version

Useless for free version

Too limited
By , for WP 3.8.1

I do not think that this plugin adds any benefit to your webpage that you cannot achieve just as easy by going to Google Maps. The only possible advantage would be the short-code to insert. The basic version works more as a way to promote the paid plugin. It is just too basic.

Demo Version Useless
By , for WP 3.8

Good plugin, easy to use and works. But the Lite or Free version is just a (very)basic demo. I understand that you guys need (and deserves) to make money, but the free version is way too limited. I teach WordPress at Brazil and wanted to feature your plugin in my class, but it´s not possible because i can´t even put title on the marks. Usually i don't make negative reviews, sorry for that, but i think you can do better at the free version. Thanks anyway.

Use a plugin that actually provides value
By , for WP 3.8

Really disappointed to have installed this plugin only to find out that it offers nearly zilch functionality unless you purchase the pro version. Junk.

Its all just a big fat lie
By , for WP 3.8

They do not give you anything if you do not pay. Probably the worst plugin I ever downloaded.

Beauty of WordPress is that there is not many liars like these guys.
