Hi WWPixels, 9 September I had a email that there is an update , when I go to the download files I have all the files except the Installable WordPress file only. Can you advise how I can update to the latest version?

Thanks in advance

Hello, please send me an email at and I will send you the latest version.


coordinates are working but the location field is not showing the marker,

can you please tell the correct syntax

Thank you


You added the coordinates and the location is wrong/missing? Could you please provide details about the coordinates?


Hello! i got your plugin from Envato Elements. Is there a way to put the list of locations on the right of the map instead of below? Thank you

Hello. Right now there is no way to change the list of locations position from the add-on.

You can try doing it with css. Here’s an example to get you started:

.wwp-vc-gmaps-map { width: 50% !important; float: left; }

.wwp-vc-gmaps-map + div { float: left; margin-left: 10px; width: calc(50% – 10px) !important; }


Great! Thank you!

Hello! I got your plugin with the Xstore theme, but I can’t find where to enter the Google Maps API key. I’ve looked everywhere. Please help! Thank you.

Hello. Should be in the the main GMAPS addon when you adding it in visual composer – a tab called API.

Oh, yes, indeed. Thank you very much!


Hello, Is there any way to close the markers by opening another one? Thanks


Unfortunatelly you cannot do this now.

I am going to add this in a future version.



Hope you are going well. :)

We found the following notice once plugin is activated: Notice: Trying to get property ‘post_content’ of non-object in /wp-content/plugins/wwp-vc-gmaps/wwp-vc-gmaps.php on line 76 and for example on the 404 page. Could you, please, fix this and release an update or any solution to allow us to do it for our installation? We understand that this is just notice, not error or warning but we prefer the clear log file, so would be grateful for the helpful response.



I am going to look into this and release an update asap.

Thanks for noticing it out.


I did not managed to reproduce this issue on my dev env, but I did tried, by adding extra validation.

Let me know if the new update fixed the php notice.



Thank you for your fast answer and helpful update. Problem fixed.



Do you have option to disable this switcher ?


Hello, there is no option.


Hi WWPixels

I got GMAPS for WPBakery Page Builder v1.5 along with a theme. Recently the theme upgraded WP Bakery Composer to v6.0.1. After that, I am unable to edit an existing map. I can edit the marker, but not the underlying container in order to update the map style or change other settings. When I hover the mouse over the GMAPS element, I do not see the icon appear that I usually click on to edit. I only see the edit icon for the map marker.

Note – It’s possible to add a new GMAP and edit that, but not edit an existing one that was created before WPBakery Page Builder was updated to v6.0.1.

Can you confirm if this is also an issue for you? I think if its an issue, then you might not be aware of it yet, hence I am posting here. You’d only notice it if you were editing an existing map.



I will check it and come back with a response.


Hello, sorry for the late response.

I just got time to update my dev to latest WP version and also update WP Bakery page builder.

I cannot reproduce the issue you are talking about, unfortunately.

Try installing the plugin on a clean env with the theme you purchased and check if you can reproduce it.


Hi wwpixels

I use your GMAPS for WPBakery Page Builder add-on that came via the xStore theme for wordpress. But when using the add-on I get the text “For development purposes only” written over the map.

I thought it might be a theme issue, but I can se that the map you have on your plugin demo gives the same error. (

Second thought is the API, but I cannot se anywhere to type the API Key. Nor any information anywhere on how this works. Can you please tell me how to get this working.

Best regards, Morten

Hello Morten,

This is indeed an API issue. Where are you seeing development purposes on our demo pages? I might missed some pages, but most of them have the API added and the plugin works fine. Eg:

The API settings should be on the main addon interface (where you set up zoom level, custom theme etc.)

Let me know if you need further help.


Thanks WWPixels.

I finally found it. :)

The error on you page is on the bottom of where the multiple marker function is mentioned.

Best regards, Morten

Thank you too. I also added the API for that specific map.


We face the following notice once plugin is activated: Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /wp-content/plugins/wwp-vc-gmaps/wwp-vc-gmaps.php on line 76. Do you plan to fix this notice and what solution could you offer?


Hello Olga,

The notice is not affecting plugin functionality. It is triggered because it checks if “the post” has the gmaps shortcode included (so it knows to add assets like css, js etc.)

You should not worry, since it`s just a notice.

If you want it removed, I can do it once you confirm the add-on purchase.


Why has this not been updated since Nov. 2017 – is it no longer supported?

It is supported.

Thank you for the quick response! I wasn’t sure if the plugin was outdated since it hadn’t shown an update since Nov 14th, 2017 with all the updates to WordPress and WPBakery. I’ll be purchasing, thank you!

It should be fine. I usually update this addon when someone requests a new feature or when Google changes the maps API. Other than that, it should be safe from WPBakery updates.


Hi there, are you able to add links to the markers content? As in if a user mouses over there is a link in the text box?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for. Check the orange marker:



I got this plugin with a theme I purchased. Sometimes the plugin loads the correct map location fine, and sometimes it loads in the middle of an ocean, no where near the correct location. I’m not sure if the api is timing-out or has a bug?

I have tried this plugin on different hosting accounts, and the api key is correct.

I have also tested another google map plugin and that works fine with no map loading fails.

Can someone please kindly suggest a solution?

Hi there. Try adding location by coordinates instead of the google maps autocomplete. That fails to render the location sometimes and goes in the middle of the ocean.


Hi Thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate that, and your suggestion to use coordinates seems to have worked. :)

I have just been going through the support of the theme and on here, and it seems others do have this issue. Since I don’t have a problem with entering an address location on other google map plugins, then surely you have something that needs addressing in your code? This is not a personal criticism in any way, just that something is obviously wrong with the way the api is retrieving the map from Google. Not sure what is going on, but clearly it needs addressing.

I`ll check it out.


Just purchased and installed and need some assistance:

1. Map doesn’t fill 100% it fills extra so there is scroll (unwanted). – will send through access now.

2. Clicking on marker/info window doesn’t link to page supplied in settings.

3. How can I disable marker animation, there is only 2 ON options but no OFF option.

4. How can I disable the lock icon?

If you remove any custom code please replace it. The last plugin author just removed stuff and I had to spend an hour re-creating it.

Sure, no problem. I`ll have to test this better when I get home.

There`s an issue somewhere and I have no idea why. I have the same settings on my development domain and seems to be working. On your side, it`s messed up.

I`ll update you in 10 hours or so.


Very buggy. Sometimes plugin works and shows proper map and markers, other times it doesn’t. Have tried with and without API and get same behavior.


The API is a requirement, you must not use it without it. One thing you can do is to add locations by coordinates instead of “by name”.

I think it’s the first time that I hear something like this about my plugin. I would gladly help you set it up correctly if needed.


Hi, I tried to open a ticket for technical support, but it does not work. Your email confirmation of registration does not arrive, even in spam.

I have a problem on this map:

It does not work, I’ve set up all the addresses etc .. but I’m not going to run the map with the correct pointers and positioning the map.

can you please check?

Your website is in maintenance, I am not able to see anything.

Have you added Google Maps API Credentials?

If you still have issue e-mail me at



Multiple markers on Google Maps do not work. Let me explain better, they first worked correctly; then after a few days they stopped running. I’m very worried, because I’m using them on a lot of pages. Please I need help.

Please send wordpress credentials on so I can proper investigate this issue.


We have a large amount of markers to put in a single map. Is there a way to import markers data (coordinates, name, popup content, ...)? The marker popup content can be HTML data?

There is no way.

I suggest to include the possibility to config a REST source of JSON data. Fast and easy to implement, very useful for dynamic data

How can I set the default zoom level? It is zoomed in too far by default

We cannot offer support for extended licence authors.

We could only fix eventual bugs but this is not the case. Please contact your theme`s author for any requests.


I’m not asking for you to fix an issue. I just would like to know how to set the default zoom level setting.

This is called product support. Something that you and the other 1000+ people that purchased a theme with my plugin included don`t have :)

Look at the first screenshot. There is an option named Auto Zoom – which defaults to “Yes”. Change it to “No” and you would be able to set the map zoom level.
