Hello! Can I remove the title link in the info box?

Hello, if you don’t put any URL it will be removed. If you mean the link to the post, actually there’s no option for that. But I’m not sure what you mean.

Is possible to cluster (group) markers?

You can use the taxonomy filters, please check the manual in the details page, is very well explained there ;) thanks!

Hello there. I have a pre-purchase question regarding your plugin. Within the “places” post-type, is there a way to add html, or is it restricted to the custom fields information? Essentially, I need the ability to add ahref links within the “place” that will link out to other URLs on the website. I see in your demo that you have what appear to “website”, “phone”, “email”, and “directions” fields. Again, wondering if there can be multiple URLs entered in that popup, so that linking to several other pages is possible. Please let me know. Thank you.

Hello! 1) you can add Maps functionality to any existing post type, also normal pages and posts. Means that you can select the post types you wish to create maps from, in the plugin’s settings page. Done that, when you edit a post of your preferred post type, like also normal pages, the coordinate fields and extra options will appear in the edit page.

Then you add the post-type parameter to the shortcode and you can also filter the map results by your preferred taxonomy (including any custom taxonomy not only categories and tags).

OR you can simply use the native Places post type and add a custom link to any page you want, but the title of the marker will link still to the Place page.

2) For the multiple URL actually that’s not supported, but is more for a space reason: while opening the popup of the map in mobile, there isn’t space for more infos than that.

Hola, tengo problemas:

1. The button: Geocode this Address does not work.

2. Enter Latitude and Longitude and does not work. Sitio: -12.049834189396936, -77.02886939048767

3. By posting you show me this error message:

QT Places Error: the selected post type doesn’t exists or is not active in the plugin settings.

Nota: I have active plugin.

I have not received any email, still does not work

Hi! Very sorry we sent the update to codecanyon but looks like nobody from Envato published it. We just resubmitted the update, you should receive email notification in couple of hours. It’s the new version 1.0.6 with backend map api upgrade.

Gracias por toda la ayuda Ya esta activo el mapa: http://www.datatrust.pe

Hi, quick question – can you display the category filter buttons on mobile? When I squeeze my browser to view the demos on mobile view, it looks like the filters disappear.

hi! They don’t fit there is no enough space in mobile, sorry!

Hi there, When you say that the plugin is compatible with Buddypress, does-it mean that it is possible to geolocate members ??? Thanks

Hello, the plugin allows to associate geolocation capabilities to every custom post type, even created by other plugins, so I think there are no problems. If you test the plugin and doesn’t work we can provide a refund, no problem, or also adapt it to work with buddypress as is a cool idea ;)

Hi, pre-sales questions:

1. We want to list rental properties in the sidebar and then have a filter category of “Rooms”. Some properties can be rented as, say, a 1-bedroom, a 2-bedroom, or a 3-bedroom. Can a property be tagged as 1, 2, 3 bedroom so it shows up when someone selects any of those numbers?

2. We also want to display our favorite restaurants, bars, etc. on the map. Can the exists as pins even if they’re not in the sidebar?

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, we’ve hit another snag. This is from our dev:

We have a little situation with the plugin on this site ( https://agavevillas2.wpengine.com/map-search/ ). As you can see there is a filter on the top of the map and it’s working great, but 1 category is missing (see image attached), how come it’s missing? This is the shortcode used for that map: [qtplaces mapid=”” template=”3” open=”0” limit=”-1” mapheight=”500” mapheightmobile=”500” autozoom=”1” streetview=”1” getdirections=”Open in Google Maps” mapcolor=”normal” listimages=”1” showfilters=”1” posttype=”property” taxonomy=”category” terms=”” debug=”0” mousewheel=”1” buttoncolor=”#FFFFFF” buttonbackground=”#7ca15c” listbackground=”#7ca15c” markercolor=”#7ca15c”]

One more question, is it possible to sort those filters alphabetically?

Hi guys, any followup on this?

It only shows category you have posts inside. Means it’s empty. There are no alphabetical filters unless you don’t add as categories for example A-E, F-L, M-R and so on

Hi, Just bougth this plugin. I have added a place entered the api code and published place. I selected to use places for pages & Post in settings. The problem here is that when i select “pages” the visual composer is gone when I edit a page? can you have a look!!

Also the geocode adress sucks. It doesn’t take any address I enter. Also the longitude & lattide cannot be saved. I enter them as you explain. After save the field(s) are empty again. Can’t you add a map where you can drag and drop and move the marker around and the lon/latt is updated automatically? Without changing the addres field? I aks because still half of the world cannot find a specific address and with automated adres it gives the most rediculous names. Its much better to type the address and then move around the marker to where you want it to be..without changing the address text field again!!!

I just see the problem with long/lat. You must enter it in the second field which is not really clear. maybe you can write it somewhere to add the long/latt in the second field!!

Stil the geolocate address does not work as you would expect. I added addresses that defenitly should be found very easy, but nothing works here. You could really consider to use a map here with drop & drag pin.

Hello, please contact us via email at info@qantumthemes.com we will send a new beta of the plugin that may fix your issues. Sorry for late reply but we are not at office during the weekend. Thanks!


I bought your plugin but there is no place details in post and places. Please can you tell me why? I tried almost everything… Deactivate plugins, theme… It still doesnt work. The website is using wordpress 4.7.3.

Thank you very much

Hello, I still have same problem… I´ll try to disable all plugins and theme now… Or do I have to clean old

data in database?

Hi, no you don’t have to do nothing of that. But it looks like Codecanyon is still having a slowdown on the updates:


Please contact us at info@qantumthemes.com i’ll send you direct download link for the product. Thanks!

Does this plugin support multi-Site?

hi! No it doesn’t

Hello! pre sale question. Can i show a gallery of 2 or 3 img for each item? I want this plugin for a customer who has a construction company, and want a map to show works in different cities of the countr, but will be interesting if we can show 2 or 3 img for each item. Regards!

Hello! I’m sorry there is no such function.

I love the way your maps plugin looks. How much would you charge to make your geo locations wordpress plugin work with my custom post type from the Dokan multi-vendor plugin which already has a street address field and zipcode field? I don’t want the vendors to have to enter the same address again or to have to enter latitude and longitude in order to appear on the map as a clickable icon that would link to the vendor’s profile?

Here is a screenshot of what the editor looks like for a vendor’s profile. https://snag.gy/lX6gAT.jpg"

I would like to have a search form on top of or under a map like airbnb.com but with only the address or zipcode fields.

hello! I’m sorry we don’t have enough people to work on such a big project now.

Can I use a function like types_render_usermeta(“profile_picture”, array( “user_current” => true )); to render the image on the icon and similar functions to populate the other information dynamically? Information like… the link to the post or profile, for example?

Hello, i have no idea if can work, sorry

With a little tweaking can I use your plugin to work with users instead of posts? The users have a full google-type address that is saved within the profile (front-end profile editor https://snag.gy/g5pBFK.jpg ) and latitude & longitude ( seen by admin only https://snag.gy/JlC0yM.jpg )? I would like to use the get_user_meta() function to use the user’s profile image for the marker icon. Is this all doable? I am not a wordpress or php expert but I think that this should be doable by someone like me who is comfortable coding.

The links are screenshots of the profile editor. As seen by the admin and as seen by the user role “vendor” from his/her front-end editor.

Hi guys. We just set up a map and noticed that when you click a pin, it auto-zooms you out to a country-wide view, so you have to scroll back in a ways to look for another pin. Is this something we could change? https://agavevillas2.wpengine.com/map-search/

Hello! You need to edit the code:


edit line 192:


comment it with //

// that.map.setZoom(5);

Then, the plugin normally loads minified js for performance, so OR you minify this JS into min/script-min.js


you edit frontend.php at line 49 and load the non minified version (replace min/script-min.js with script.js)

I installed the plugin and if you look at this page when we click on an icon it does not open the window with the information.

And apart how do I make the map to full page width? Thank you

i’m not able to display categories on the map and the template 1 and 2 are same.

Hello, I think that removing all the empty parameters will fix your issue. Thanks!

Will your plugin work correctly if I have WordPress 4.8 and WooCommerce 3.0, please? If you are not sure, is it possible to get 15 day free trial, please?

It shouldn’t have problems, but if you experience any just let us know via support forum, thanks! http://qantumthemes.com/helpdesk

OK. it works seems, but there are some issues :(. #1 some points are not visible on the map, but they are still available in all places which I created. 1 hours before was everything ok, but after updates few new places, the old are hidden. #2 How to make my list of cafes (names of pionts) alphabetically, please?

Thank you,

1) this can depend on your categories and filters, just check filter settings and the categories of the items of your list.

2) They re normally by “menu order” so the numeric attributes of each place, but you can edit the query by editing the code: in


line 63

you can change the ‘orderby’ to fit your needs


Hello, I would like to know if your plugin may it’s the best solution to our business. Can I make you some questions? I need one Wordpress plugin map that will provide one big list around the world with “coachs” with different professional levels. It’s an multi-language website so, the translation its very important too. (pt-BR, esp, Eng).

The markers it’s a filter that shows where they are available with their specific level.

Here’s the information necessary in every professional – popup

Name: Phone: Gender: Professional Level: (Dropdown List) [level 1, level 2, level 3] Description: E-mail Directions: Days and Time: 09:00 – 18.

Hello and thank you for the questions.

For the first part of your question, is exactly what the plugin is meant to do: you can create alist of coaches (or whatever) and display them in the map, also filtered by category, and in the map you can display the additional filters that can be used from the visitors to filter the results.

About the second part instead, the info available in the marker are the ones you see and it would require help from a WP developer to add the info you need and you don’t see in the demo (gender, professional level, .....) and we don’t have at the moment enough working power to provide this customization for you. For this, you would require to find a professional on Envato studio or anywhere else, I’m sorry.
