Hello, How should or what software should I have the map to be able to implement it with this plugin? Example, illustrator, raphael js

It is possible to load additional content from each map point into a div or container outside the map, for example to load next to the map after clicking on the map item or menu


Thank you for the interest. You can create maps using any vector editor like Illustrator or Inkscape.

Displaying location info in external div requires customization. The plugin’s API was designed to support such modifications.

How to reset the maps? I edited and deleted some elements. I want to reset the sample demo maps. I tried reinstalling it but the elements are still missing. is there a reset button for the demo maps? Thanks.


Thank you for using Mapplic. I just replied to your private message. Anyone else having the same question:

The only way to reset built-in maps is by editing the WordPress MySQL database. There’s a record with option_name mapplic-version in the table wp_options. Remove that record and reactivate the plugin, the built-in maps should be reinstalled.

Please note that this is an advanced task, proceed only if you know what you’re doing.

pre-purchase question:

I am creating a website on Wordpress featuring different restaurants in different countries (each pin point will contain information about the restaurant e.g. location, contact, review etc). Will Mapplic be able to achieve this?

Thanks, Tina

Hello Tina,

Thank you for the interest. Yes, Mapplic is perfectly suitable for what you are planning to do.

Let me know if you have any further questions.


Is it possible to colour the sidebar floor heading boxes to different colours so all are not the same colour? I can use .mapplic-list-category > a { class to change colour but that changes all to the same colour. I would like to change each of the floors to have a different colour header box colour in sidebar.


Hello Aaron,

Thanks for using Mapplic. There’s built-in support for that, I replied to your PM.

Let me know if there’s anything else.

Hi Sekler. I have not received an email or notification about the reply. Are you able to supply me an email address where I can contact you directly to discuss the above question. Thank you.

Simply use the contact form on the profile page. I replied to your message 4 days ago.

I’m wondering if this is possible a)as is or b)with customisation -

I’d like to use a map whereby a user clicks on a state gets directed to certain content – it looks as if that’s covered with your plugin

Next I’d like the system to “remember” which state the user was on when last logged in

Finally I’d like to only enable the next state when certain criteria are meet.

The idea is to provide lessons about each state and the user can then click on the next state once the lessons are completed.

Thanks for your time, if this plugin doesn’t fit this job I’d still like to use it sometime as it looks really cool.


Than you for the interest and sorry for the late answer.

What you are trying to do is not possible out of the box, custom modifications would be required.

If you have any further questions please get in touch through the profile page contact form.

Kind regards

Hi, I am trying to make a clickable shape open to a PDF when clicked but it seems like the link action only works when then pin is a visible shape. Is there a way around this? You can see the map at http://nepenthehoa.com/aatest. In the top right, unit 1,5, and 7 all have link actions but only 1 works when you click on the red dot.

Seems there was a javascript confilct with another plugin. After deactivating it clicking on the shape now works.

As it turns out it wasn’t a java issue. I’m now back to links not working. Tooltips don’t work either. Not sure why it started working or stopped but it does seem to be an issue with Chrome as it works fine in any other browser.


Sorry for the late answer. Have you been able to fix the issue? If no, please get in touch through the profile page contact form and provide a link to your page with the map.


I just purchased your plugin. In backend everything looks just fine. But frontend is messy. the landmarks and the map do not match anymore. the map-image is too far to the right. and fullscreen doesn’t work nicely too. (left side of screen is a bit transparent and the whole map is outcentered. please help. I will send you my domain and credentials my email. Thank you in advance!

i have the map matching with landmarks now. but still fullscreen doesn’t work properly. cannot get “back”, stuck in fullscreen mode… fullscreen mode should cover the header of my page too which it doesn’t. thx for looking at this.

thx for your email and clearing all issues :) great plugin !!

I’m glad everything works as expected :) Thanks for letting me know!

Hi Team, The map looks great.

I am wondering in the Mall example.

Lets say I am creating a page in my mall for Macy’s. Can I put the map on that page and for the map to be already active with Macy’s with a shortcode or something?

Thank you.


Thank you for using Mapplic. Yes, that is possible using the landmark feature like this: [mapplic id=”25” landmark=”macys”]

Let me know if there’s anything else.

Hello. I’m looking to buy the plugin to create a country map of Costa Rica… so that I can highlight the different cities, provinces, etc… What image format should I use to create the map? Please advice


Thank you for using Mapplic and sorry for the late answer. You need an SVG version of the map that is compatible with the plugin: https://www.mapplic.com/docs/#mapplic-compatible

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello is there a demo on how to make the map? What software is needed or can you make it within WordPress. Is there any other stuff we have to buy to make this work?


Thank you for the interest and sorry for the late answer.

Maps are made using graphic editor software like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. Any existing map can be made compatible with the plugin: https://www.mapplic.com/docs/#mapplic-compatible

Let me know if you have other questions.


Thanks, sekler, this plugin is really great! I tried out nearly all map-plugins, but yours is by far the best! Great job!!!


Thank you for using the plugin, I’m glad you like it! :) I really appreciate your kind words!

how to remove thumbnail once added – I can not make that field remain blank???? Thanks


Thank you for using Mapplic. If you are still unable to remove the thumbnail please get in touch through the profile page contact form and provide a link (and temporary admin access if possible) to your test site.


I sent you an email asking you for help because I no longer see the map on my site after updating the latest version. I have the AVADA template with Fusion pag builder.

I did not get an answer from you. Thank you for helping me.

Thank you for using Mapplic.

I replied to your PM on 26.06. If you need any further help please get in touch.


Hi , your map works fine. However I need help here.

I would like to click a link inside a landmark and anchor it down to the accordion.

I have this code. <script> jQuery(function ($) { //accordion $(’#open-accordion’).on(‘click’, function(event){ $(’#my-accordion .et_pb_accordion_item_0 .et_pb_toggle_title’).click(); $(“html, body”).animate({ scrollTop: $(’#my-accordion’).offset().top }, 1000); }); }); </script>

The problem is, where do i place my id #open-accordion anywhere in the landmark? See the map at http://www.test3.hoechong.com/map/ By the way, its on the Japan landmark.


Thank you for using Mapplic, I’m glad you like it.

You need to use live event handler since the landmark popup is dynamic:

$(document).on(‘click’, '#open-accordion', function(event){ ...

Hope this helps, let me know if there’s anything else.

Hi. I’ve updated to version 4.1 but now the map has disappeared. Any suggestions?

I believe you managed to fix the issue, let me know if there’s anything else. :)

Hi, I do seem to have the same problem as giannibrienza. My map is displayed shortly after I made changes and then somehow it disappears and it won’t be visible in any browser (http://eileenskitchenstories.com/world-map/). I have sent an e-mail as well but I assume you respond here more often, hence, another comment. :-) Loving the map! Please help as I really need it for my page. Cheers.

Thanks for using Mapplic, I’m glad you like it. :) You should use the contact form for asking support and not this comment section.

I replied to your private message, let me know if there’s anything else.


Hi, my map also disappeared after I’ve updated to version 4.1. Please help!

Thanks for using Mapplic. I replied to your PM, send an email if you still need help.


My map height is stuck at 420px, no matter which map height I choose.

Thank you for using Mapplic. Please try using the h shortcode attribute like this:
[mapplic id="25" h="600"]
