Hello, A pre-purchase question: Is there any way to add items to the map dynamically or “on the fly”? TIA

Basically, what is needed is to display the markers based on special selection criteria.

greenline

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I think you can add them dynamically in the PHP code and then use the php echo do_shortcode. Some theme developers use them also with custom fields.

Kind regards

Hello, I would like to set a fixed height and width for the custom icons for retina support. I’m not finding the option in your helper admin. I’m more then happy to set them inline if there isn’t an existing CSS style declaration for the custom icons.

Thank you.

greenline

I’m sorry to hear that, can you please send me the file after you modified it, at greenline@yava.ro ? I’ll have a look, maybe it’s a small parsing error in the JSON part which can be tricky sometimes. Thanks!

Any updates on this from the email I sent?

I just sent an email, thank you for the patience.

Hello, Pre-purchase question: Can I easily import 100+ points on the map from a CSV file? Thanks,

greenline

Hi, thank you for your interest, but unfortunately, with this this plugin it’s not possible at all to import data from a CSV file. Regards

How do I make this map go the full width of the browser? I’ve set the width to 100% but it only spans 960 px.

greenline

Hi and thank you for having purchased this plugin.

If the width is set to 100% and it spans only 960px it means that the parent container of the map (the element in which you place the shortcode) does not span to 100%.

To make the map full-width, you’ll need to place the map shortcode into an element which is full-width (the author of the theme can tell you which element goes full-width to place a map in it)

If the theme author is not responding, just drop me an email please at greenline@yava.ro with a link to your live page and I will take a look further.

Kind regards.

Hi Pre Purchase Questions; 1. Can I have a USA state map of say for example, California, and then have markers in multiple cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego etc? 2. If so, can all those markers have links to their respective city pages on my site? 3. Can I add an image to the info box?

Thanks

greenline

Hi, thank you for your interest. To answer the questions:

1) yes, it’s possible to have a USA map, but not isolated, you can’t show only one country with this plugin. But instead you can zoom at a certain zoom level that makes only the California state for instance visible in the visible map area.

2) Yes, it’s possible to put links to anything in any marker popup.

3) Yes, images can be added using the corresponding HTML code for images.

Kind regards

Default-user

Thanks. So does that mean if I zoom in to show say California and then save the map that only what I saved (California) would be visible on my page after I inserted the shortcode?

greenline

You can’t save the map with the California in center. But the zoom is set with the shortcode, specifying [...zom=”14”...] for instance and then the map zooms to that area.

we can no loner add our publisher id in this latest version for adsense? the was the main reason i got this. is there any way you can put that option back in?

greenline

Hi, the publisher id was taken out because there were people requesting it out and I thought it is no longer used. I’ll put this back, I will try to release tomorrow a new version with adsense added back. Thank you for your feedback!

thats great, thank you very much greenline!

greenline

I’m sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience!

If you download from codecanyon Downloads the version available now, you’ll have again the Adsense option available.

(There is no need to delete your existing map shortcodes from your pages or posts, just uninstall the version you have and install the latest one)

Thanks again! Cheers

Is it possible to have a link when clicking the marker itself (rather than in the popup)

greenline

No, I’m sorry, this is not possible with this plugin. Kind regards

question: will this map allow someone to click on marker and have it link to map on their iphone?

In other words, if I click on location marker when viewing on my iphone, will it open up my google maps app?

greenline

Hi. No, I’m sorry, it doesn’t work that way. When you click on a marker it can only open that small popup window in which you can put any content. Thank you for your interest!

Hello! I have some questions for this plugin:

1. Can i have categories of locations? 2. Can i have directions to a location? (or link to a google map) 3. Can i have an image in the popup box?

Thanks

greenline

Hi, thank you for your interest. To answer the questions:

1) Categories are not supported 2) Yes, you can have directions or any other link to anything in any marker popup 3) Yes, you can put an image in the popup and even text besides it

Best regards

Hi, I need to use AJAX to have these points appear “on the fly”. In other words, someone enters information into a form for a query. The query will return the LAT/LONG for the points. These points now need to be placed on the map (using your code). The page cannot refresh. It would be good to just refresh one portion of the page – in other words – the portion of the page that has tags.

How can this be done using AJAX?

TIA

Hi can you confirm that this is formatted correctly? Thanks!

"map_loc_data":{"address":"203 Cardiff Street San Antonio,TX,78220","key":2,"html":"This is a test here","popup":false,"flat":true,"icon":{"image":"http://demoestate.apostx.com/wp-content/plugins/responsive-maps-plugin/includes/icons/basicbuilding.png"}}

I’m using a third-party jQuery map library in my plugin, I’ll check again its documentation to see examples using json and I will come back with a note.

Is there a live page where I can see&test the javascript myself? It could be simpler.

greenline

Well, according to the map jquery library author, a correct json format that should work is:

jQuery('.responsive-map').gMapResp("addMarkers", [{latitude: 50.083, longitude: 19.917}, {latitude: 50.283, longitude: 19.717}]); 

This adds two simple markers.

This is the original documentation (my jquery function is renamed from gMap to gMapResp to avoid conflicts with other map plugins): http://www.smashinglabs.pl/gmap/documentation

NOTE:

Any javascript or PHP code mentioned in previous comments was for custom situations. With this plugin, for a normal use case, you don’t have to write any PHP or javascript code.

Hi Mate, at http://www.phnompenhrestaurantguide.com/test/ you see I have one test venue marked at the map. Is it possible to get when I click on this at the map that it goes to the correct venue, in this case: http://www.phnompenhrestaurantguide.com/test/restaurant/samba-brazilian-steakhouse/

How do I do that?

Default-user
Mrnicoo Purchased

Thanks, that was actually that I want, When you click on the logo at the map you being redirected to the correct address

greenline

In this case just a small remark: to avoid parsing errors, inside the description field in the shortcode, use only simple apostrophes instead of double apostrophes for any html code you put in there (for a href links too)

If you need more assistance, just send me what you need and I’ll help with the shortcode.

Best regards

Is it possible to change the display language of the front end of the map (ie the locations on the map)

greenline

Hi, thank you for purchasing this plugin.

At this moment, changing the display language can be done only manually:

please navigate from your WordPress admin to Plugins -> Editor -> select from the upper-top-right select menu the responsive styled maps plugin like in this image: http://awesomescreenshot.com/00a3cfh6a0

Then locate in the code the line containing http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false&v=3.exp&libraries=adsense and add at the end of it the language code:

&language=ja

where ja is the language code for instance for Japanese. The full list of language codes can be seen here: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p9pdwsai2hDMsLkXsoM05KQ&gid=1

If you wish, just send me to greenline@yava.ro your admin login details and I can make this change for you. I plan to include the language feature in the next plugin update.

NOTE:

Any javascript or PHP code mentioned in previous comments was for custom situations. With this plugin, for a normal use case, you don’t have to write any PHP or javascript code.

OK – I see what happened – the markers were added – the thing was, I had the map originally in local Australia (street level). The points were added in the US. The map still showed the local area in Australia. It did not automatically adjust to show the newly added points. In other words, the markers were there but were just off screen.

I thought that when running the function that refreshes the map, it would automatically adjust to show all points.

Can this be done somehow? TIA

Default-user

Understood – but is there a way to do it from the AJAX side – perhaps before the refreshing takes place?

Default-user
dgmufasa Purchased

For example, before the refreshing of the map (after adding markers)

And a final question – do you know of a good place to reference for geocoding? When using google geocoding, I get this message: OVER_QUERY_LIMIT – so – I am looking for a good alternative

Hi – where can I change the css style settings for the pop-up? I want to change the background color and other things.

TIA

greenline

It can be done only manually. Editing the file named rsmaps.css from plugin’s folder’ includes/css/rsmaps.css
