Hello, I have been using this plugin for a long time, but since the 4.8.1 update scroll to zoom no longer works as it did. When you attempt to scroll to zoom it displays a message that says “Use ctrl + scroll to zoom the map”. Is there a way to disable this in the plugin?
Additionally, it now requires two fingers to move the map on a mobile device, which we would also like to revert back if possible.
Unfortunately, these are features that are a part of Google’s API, and they have changed the behavior of the map in mobile, independent of our code or the version of WordPress.
Thanks for your response, and I understand that Google has made a change to their API. However, it appears that you may be able to update your code to revert back to the previous behavior, at least this Google API documentation indicates that:
Just installed the plugin and added a location, which is fine in the preview, when I add it to the map I get a place marker in the middle of the ocean i.e. a map with a blue background and no capabilities to zoom etc.
Sorry it does zoom, the location created is in the UK and is placed off the coast of africa in the middle of the ocean
It’s possible that the location might be having trouble getting geocoded properly.
Would you be able to try recreating the location? If this still doesn’t work, it is possible to manually drag the marker to it’s proper location.
After installing the plugin and trying to setup locations etc the map does not display in the backend of wordpress… I keep getting this error:
“Oops! Something went wrong.
Please can you help me fix this?
Do you have any other plugins or themes that use Google Maps? This, and an improperly configured API key are the most common causes for this loading error.
The console shows:
map.min.js:2 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘offsetWidth’ of undefined
I already tried deactivating all plugins and changing theme
I was missing the API key. Sorry
after wordpress upgrading to 4.8.1 all my maps cant be loaded – always shows “loading” icon.
I would like to add an route suggestion to the map, I guess I can do this with this plugin.
Can you please advise?
Furthermore I need my map displayed as full-width. Please let me know if you need login credentials in order to check.
Making the map full-width will depend on your site’s theme and CSS and isn’t a feature we have built in as a result. We unfortunately can’t code this custom CSS for your site as a part of support.
For the route suggestion, we do support the ability to get directions from one point to it’s destination via car, and the ability to drag the route to adjust it.
Is it possible to put links outside the map that directs to the different markers? So when you hover over or click on them the infowindows pop open.
If so, can you help me on this?
I am looking for a WordPress map-plugin that meets my needs.
I found your plugin but I don’t if it works for me or not.
I have a database with about 300 markers to show on the map (branches of a company). Data are stored as XML/MySQL/CSV/XLS files and columns are “Latitude, Longitude, Address, Telephone, Fax, Email, Website, BranchType”.
- I need a plugin that can work with my database to show the markers on the map by their latitude and longitude.
- The color of each marker should be different. “BranchType” column determines the color. Branches are (Commercial, Service, Maintenance).
- When user clicks on a marker, details of the branch from the database (Title, Address, Telephone, Fax, Email, Website) will be shown.
- Beside database, the website administrator must be able to manually edit/delete one of the markers or add a new marker with new information to map. Actually I need the database to one-time-import the data. After import, no change to the database is required.
Nevertheless can I use your plugin for my website?
I need to make sure about that before purchasing it.
Our plugin does allow entering locations by latitude/longitude, and you can set custom images to get different marker colors.
You would be able to put all the branch details on click in our infowindow content. The marker color/image, location coordinates, and information are all editable after the fact.
What we don’t support is importing/connecting to your custom database. Each location from your database would have to be manually created and would be independent from your database.
I can use the plugin fully in the back end but it just doesn’t show on the front end – my web developer says the plugin needs to be updated to be compatible with Google API.
Do you know when you’ll release an update?
Our plugin does use Google’s API to function, but you have to create your own API keys.
Have you created a Google API project with the Google Maps API enabled?
how can I change the zoom of the map: https://nyugimelo.hu/kapcsolat/ ?
The default zoom under Google Maps/Map Setting is grayed out.
Thanks a lot,
on the front-end by pusing ” – ” the map won’t zoom out and I can’t move the map in any directions…. Could you please advise?
There is a smaller map at the bottom of the page. If you remove that map, does the front end map from our plugin work?
As for the greyed out settings, there is a little map on that page. You can move and zoom the map around and those settings adjust. You can enter an address, or latitude/longitude and press “Find on Map” to set this to a specific position.
can you please advise?
Hi There! Any news?
Although the second map was removed, your site still seems to give the “Google Maps API loaded multiple times” error. This is a site specific issue that we are unable to resolve, but your site is most likely still loading Google Maps for the map you removed.
can I translate the English expressions like: ‘Auto fit map’ etc. https://nyugimelo.hu/kapcsolat/
If not, can I hide those?
Sorry I did manage to hide those (easy one) can you please advise about the translations?
In order to create translations, there are mo/po files included in our plugin. You will need an app like Poedit to create the strings for different languages.
These files are in the languages folder of our plugin. You will want to backup any changes you make there, as uninstalling our plugin will remove any custom languages.
maps keep appearing in new york.. no matter what address I put in.
i have recently bought your google map plugin.
Great plugin so far, but there is one thing i can’t manage to do :
How is it possible to change the google map color (only the map and not the pins) ? I want it in greyscale.
Where do i change this ?? I can’t see an area where i can affect a specific color for a map.
thank you !
You can create a greyscale effect by creating a new Google Map Style in the backend under the map styles.
Create a new style and set saturation to -100 (as far left as the slider goes), and save the style.
You can then apply this style to any map or make it default/forced in the settings for your map.
Hello, I have a problem with Responsive Google Maps plugin. It seems it’s not working with SiteOrigin page builder. When I add shortcode from Responsive Google Maps to a page and view it I see blank page.
The problem arises when I have a link setted in Infowindow Content.
Link or any other text.
Are you using our shortcodes in SiteOrigin, or their shortcodes within our plugin’s infowindow?
If the former, their plugin might not be compatible with our plugin, or it may be loading our shortcode incorrectly.
I have changed location settings – Asynchronously load locations on the front-end. I chosed Yes and this solved the problem.
The plugin is not compatible with Yoast SEO. Due to the popularity of this plugin, I think that compatibility is needed. The map is loading all the time and nothing happens. In the console appears following error:
(index): 618 Uncaught ReferenceError: map5a5b3a6697090_map_locations is not defined
at HTMLDocument. <anonymous> ((index): 618)
at i (jquery.js: 2)
at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js: 2)
at Function.ready (jquery.js: 2)
at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js: 2)
I am using SiteOrigin Page Builder. The map works fine only inserted in a plain text editor.
To reproduce this issue all you need is a clean installation of WordPress + SiteOrigin + Yoast SEO + Responsive Google Maps. The shortcode from Responsive Google Maps should be placed in SiteOrigin Page Builder.
Hello, this is Alexander. I’m a developer for Yoast.com. Could you please provide us with a copy of your plugin so we can look into the plugin conflict issue @maciek8 is experiencing.
You can reach me with this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi, You should be receiving an email from us soon with a copy for testing.
Thank you for your cooperation.
I would like to inform you that there is indeed a conflict between Yoast SEO, your plugin and Site Builder. Please see https://github.com/Yoast/wordpress-seo/issues/8665 for detailed instructions on how to reproduce.
