Hi. Thanks for making a nice maps plugin! I have a problem that I’m hoping you can help with. Currently your plugin has support for displaying “nearby places” of the set types allowed by Google places API. However, these types are rather clunky, particularly when the categories assume things are categorized internationally as they are in the US. So the function has limited use and poor results.
I want to be able to use the more powerful places search as per https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/search
I say more powerful as I can use type AND keyword.
I have been trying to find a maps plugin that supports this. It would be really great if you could show me how I may adapt your plugin to be able to use keywords, not the rather useless (in my case) google categories.
Also, when using nearby places with your plugin, I have to specify center of map in the zoom settings. All well and good, but ideally I’d like the places to be returned (where possible) based on the users current location (if this can be pulled, if not based on the default set). Meaning using the Google geolocation API https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geolocation/intro
May be I will consider this API for next version as I am going to implement new functions in each of my plugin.
But frankly it will take some time for me to do this because it will require major change as I have to replace current API with this.
is there any possibilty to use your plugin in the following way:
show a map with markers that show events, linked to a location, plus a filter function above this map to filter the shown events for date/location/category etc.?
Plus is there a way to add multiple categorys and link colours or ven icons to those categorys?
Is it possible to add a custom marker for EACH event O want to show on the map?
If the above is not possible out of the box maybe there a other supported plugins or a way to customise this easily via code?
Thanks for anwering.
One thing is you will have to manually add markers in map. It will not automatically added in map when you add event.
Another thing it has no filter functionality.
For icons you can set any color of markers so yes you can manually set separate icons for each marker.
Let me know if you have any other question.
For filter and other requirement may be you will have to do extra work on it.
Hi i have a big problem,
when i save page all markers disappear and a i need to reinsert them!
It is bugged
Please send me admin login details at email@example.com so I can check.
I am having trouble creating a google map. For example, I want to set the latitude and longitude for Washington, D.C. (38.9072, 77.0369) but this sets the icon somewhere in Asia. I also can’t go back and edit the address field as there are exclamation icons in the field, also among other fields in the settings.
Please send me admin details at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can check.
Hi there, when I first installed the plugin everything was working perfectly, we changed the dns and got a new domain server (I don’t know if that matters) and after a while I realised that Every time I save the map it eats up randomly entries, I need to put 30 locations and it’s impossible every time I save it eats up some or all of my entries and I noticed a visual bug as well, the background of the input box for the text has a pattern of Warning labels, like it’s an error. This is used for a client and he is giving me hell please get back to me as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance.
Please send me admin login details so I can check.
This is normally because of invalid google map API. But send me details at email@example.com so I can check.
I sent all details
Ok Thanks. I will reply in personal email
Ih, yesterday I bought this plugin and I installed it on wordpress. I add a new map, generated an API key, I add some markers to the map and save it. Then I put the shortcode in the page. At the firts time the markers appear on the map, but then, in plugin backend, appears a bug (on markers address), and all markers (in backend e fronteend) disappear. Please, help me, I have to put the map on website as soon as possible (the web site in already online!)
Hi, Not sure what the issue is however I can’t add a marker to my maps using your plugin. I either get “oop’s something has gone wrong” or undefined in the marker box when I try to add.
Hi – I’m not a huge fan of sending my admin details to people I don’t know. I am finding this pluggin really sensitive. I managed to add a few markers. The issue there was the order in which i did each process. My next issue. when I try to add markers to an already saved map – on all the previously saved marker address boxes I get these semi circles with what looks like an “i” in the middle. Then when i add the new marker points and save the map – all the old points are deleted. Any idea what is causing this? Also i have to add about 180 markers. Is there a CSV upload feature available?
I think your issue is with API key, its better if you share details so I can check. I understand your privacy but it will take just few mins for me to check. You can create temporary account and then can remove it.
It will really help me to resolve faster.
1/ hi, is it possible to bulk load a large number of loactions in the admin ? 2/ Is it possible to have a form where people can enter a location that will have to be validated by an admin before being published ? 3/ Can we create our own zone ? Thanks
Sorry but none of your request is available right now. Not without custom code.
I cannot add markers. The address field is filled with grey error circles. The map preview sys something has gone wrong.
Can you help me please?
Hi! Like the plugin. One problem: I have actually 41 locations on the map and sometimes not all of them are shown. On reload different Marker are not shown. Looks very random…
Any known problems with solutions on this?
Chances are google is blocking too many requests at the same time. To avoid this you can replace address with latitude, longitude and it will work.
Try and let me know.
Worked! Thanks a lot.
Loads all markers and a lot faster. On the backside I now have a lot of markers with similar looking coordinates in the backend. Maybe you could add a label that is shown on a future update…
BTW I use the “Visual Composer Responsive Google Maps”, so I was slightly off
