I want to show only Denver area in the map, how do I do that?


Hi! Thank you for using the plugin! The plugin does not go to city level, it only displays countries or maximum the state shapes. It doesn’t display city boundaries unfortunately. Sorry for this limitation. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

:( :( is there any other way? is that possible to manually input or something?

Unfortunately it’s not possible to use custom maps, only the maps provided by the plugin, which uses the Geochart API only. Sorry for this limitation.

I want to do the overlay so I can have a colored map with markers, but I am placing the map using php and not the short code.

How do I do that? Can I do that?

Hi! You can use the shortcode inside the php function, with this format:
<?php echo do_shortcode("[show-map id='1' overlay='2']"); ?>
Hope it helps! Greetings, Carlos

Hi Carlos,

I have the exact same question as David had 3 years ago, see quoted text below. I’am not such an advanced Wordpress user. Which exact code should i place in stead of this line: //$capability = ‘manage_options’;

Hope to hear soon from you,

With kind regards,

Ruud van Bergen

about 3 years ago Flag Hi Carlos,

Is it possible to make this plug-in accessible to logged in Editor level Wordpress users, rather than just Admin level users somehow?

Thanks, David

cmoreira cmoreira AUTHOR about 3 years ago Flag Hi David! Thank you for using the plugin. If you open the file map.php you can see the line:

$capability = ‘manage_options’; This line will control the capabilities type for administrating the maps. You can change the ‘manage_options’ to some other capability. You can see editor level capabilities here: hope it helps! Greetings, Carlos DavidKirkpatrick DavidKirkpatrick PURCHASED about 3 years ago Flag Hi Carlos,

Sorted now. I needed to edit that line and also if (current_user_can(‘manage_options’)) Thanks for your help. David

cmoreira cmoreira AUTHOR about 3 years ago Flag Hi David. Glad everything is sorted now. Thank you for the update. Cheers

The update-proof way would be to add a line of code to a child-theme, if you’re using one. Or use a capabilities plugin to give the ‘manage_options’ privilege to the editor, for example. Write me via the contact form on the support tab and I can provide more info about how to implement these solutions also. Greetings, Carlos

Yeah I am using a child theme. But are you saying it is also possible to create a child-plugin? That would be great :)

The code would go into your child-theme files, not a child plugin :) Write me via the contact form on the support tab. Greetings, Carlos

1) is it your map will appear like this?

2) If at post we put several pin at map that we put at post, is it that pin will also appear maps that we put at homepage?

3) Is it the map we put at post can appear only appear that we want? For example we put pin texas restaurant at that map and other pin didn’t show. Can?

4) Can map at homepage filter the the pin category like restaurant. accommodation, school?

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the plugin. Unfortunately my plugin will not look like that map, it uses a different technology. Mine is more appropriated for larger scale maps, like country maps ou world maps, it doesn’t go to city level and it doesn’t connect to posts that way and it won’t filter like you want. Sorry for the limitations. Greetings, Carlos

Can I input radius around a map location with this plugin? I can currently do this on my own with “Google My Maps”. I do this by using this website: to create a KML file and then import it into a map I have created with “Google My Maps”.

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the plugin. Unfortunately it is not possible to have a radius around a location. The plugin uses a different API from Google that provides vector maps, that doesn’t have this capability. You can however have round markers, as big as you want, so they could work as radius, but you would control the size in pixels, not in km/miles, and you wouldn’t have a pin indicating the center. Sorry for the limitations. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Hi, I would like to perform dynamic markers. For example for a membership site, I would like the map to dynamically:

1- show a total count of users from any country on the world map. 2- place a pindrop on the world map displaying the user’s avatar of where the user is located.

Please suggest how this can be done currently out of the box or with minor tweaks.


Hi! Thank you for using the plugin. Out of the plugin the plugin doesn’t have that feature, it is only ready to read the data added in the administration screen. It is not capable to reading data from other sources. So you’ll need to customize the plugin to read data from custom sources. You’ll need 2 maps: a markers map (for the users locations) and a regions map (to display the count per country).

In the plugin code, in the file map.php, the variable you’ll need to manipulate is this one:
$input = $mapdata['places'];
That variable will have all the data to populate a certain map with the CSV format you can see on ‘advanced tab’ when editing a map. You’ll need to manipulate that variable to include the dinamic data you need.

At the moment I am not able to provide customizations like this one, but if you write me via the contact form on the support tab I can try to give more details.

Greetings, Carlos

Will I be able to use this in a blog? Just bought the interactive maps version and doesn’t support javascript.. Should have checked that before..

Hi! The plugin will only work on self-hosted WordPress sites, since unfortunately doesn’t allow you to install other plugins. It also makes it very hard to add custom javascript unfortunately.

Hi, this its my map:

I have two things:

1.- How configure the color of margin or boder of provincies, i intent change in configure settings border color but not work, i intent in global settings and the settings of the particular map but not work

2.- How add any marker into active seccion with a number or text inside



The border option in the visual settings refers to the border of the map itself, and the width is usually set to 0, so you might not see changes. But what you’re looking for is the regions borders, that you can change in the ‘custom css generator’, below the map preview. You’ll find the option there.

You can overlay a markers map or a text labels map, using this technique:

Hope it helps! Greetings, Carlos

I need instructions on how to make a US map with colored regions. Like the 4th map on this page

Hi! Thank you for using the plugin.

Here you can find a couple of screenshots of the administration areas of some of the US maps on the demo page:

This should give you an idea of what you need to do to display the US map with the coloured regions. If you have any further question you can write me via the contact form on the support tab and we can follow up via email.

Greetings, Carlos


I want ask about zoom button… its possible?

Hello, Carlos.

How i can delited borders of another countries?

Try following the tips here: Basically you need to use the custom css generator, below the map preview, to set the inactive region colour border to 0px. If you have any particular question, send me a message via the contact form on the support tab and we can follow up via email. Greetings, Carlos

Thank you.

hello, pre-sale question.

does the mini popup window when mousing over support HTML Like a link, image and shortcodes?

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the plugin. You can add HTML content to the tooltip, yes, but it won’t render shortcodes unfortunately. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Hi, I’m very interested in your plugin, it looks beautiful I must say! I am building a site where the company offers a directory of contractors to those visiting the site. Currently this is just a list on the old site under county headings (in Ireland). Some counties have 3 contractors, some have ~10. Would you plugin be able to display this much information to the user at any one time? Each contractor shows name, phone, address, email and website, so that multiplied by x amount of contractors in the one area could be quite busy.

You can get an idea here

Thanks in advance, I really hope your plugin could handle it, it’s the best I’ve seen yet.

Thanks Mark

Hi thanks, that does indeed work great. I suppose my next question is is there a way to format the data in rows/columns. Majority of my regions have a max of 5 sets of info (each around 5 lines each), which is manageable, however one has 13 sets, which won’t look very pretty in a vertical list. Ideally I’d like to do 3 columns. Not sure if that’s outside your realm of support or if you have done this before. Thanks

You can have all type of HTML content in the ‘action value’ so that would be a matter of adding the proper HTML to format the content that way. When you edit the Action Value, If you have the editor enabled, click the ‘source code’ icon and you can add the html code there more easily. For example, HTML code for a 3 column table: <table> <tr> <td>Column 1</td> <td>Column 2</td> <td>Column 3</td> </tr> </table> Hope it helps. Cheers, Carlos

Thank you, some tweaking required but it looks like it’ll do the job! Thanks, and keep up the good work!

I get no hover effect on the overlay map?

Hi! Are you referring to the hover colour? You should edit it directly in the overlay map, below the preview, in the custom css generator. Parent map effects won’t pass to the overlay map. If the problem persists, if you share the link to your page I can check what could be wrong. Greetings, Carlos

Hola. Got it to work – TY . great plug in for my need.

Hello We wish to buy this plugin for our website. main issue is we need correct map of india in world map.

pls check and these both are incorrect.

it shd be like (check indian version)

few more links to correct indian map

so will it be possible for you to make this change if we buy the plugin.

No, unfortunately that won’t be possible. The maps are generated using the Google Geochart API, and we can only offer the options they provide, so it’s hard to make customizations.

ok let me talk to client and come back to you. if you have to develop something can you do that at additional cost for us?

At the moment I am not doing custom work, since I’m already involved in a lot of projects. But you can always contact me via the contact form on the support tab and we can follow up via email. Greetings, Carlos

Hi. Is it poseble to export import to an other domain ? – payed offcus

Hi! The plugin doesn’t have a direct export/import feature. However you can copy the contents of the ‘advanced tab’ of your map into a new map to replicate the data. This would be the faster way. If you have multiple maps, too many to copy one by one, there are other solutions. If you write me via the contact form on the support tab I can provide more information. Greetings, Carlos
