    Remember Google Map It for PP? Good news is it has been remade to fit all WP themes, including PP.

    finalizing some documentation and download area, will share link for Google Map It plugin when ready.

    What does it do? Multiple pin map for all posts, any page. Call pins by tags, taxonomies, location, category etc.

    Multiple instances same page

    Everything shortcodes

    Can see calling all posts on :
    https://www.africa-the-south.com/south-africa/
    And posts by tags on :
    https://www.africa-the-south.com/south-africa/franchise/mochachos-south-africa/
    And on single post view, check the last tab on any post.

    Did I mention it will be free?

    No demos yet Mark, the demo links to DP themes is just to make life easy to find whatever file you are looking for with the code to do some ”customizations”, or hacks, whatever you call it.

    When ready to open downloads, people can grab it and test it themselves for whatever theme. It works on custom post types, pages, posts, widgets, and wherever else you can add shortcode.

    The worst that happens, if you dont have lat long fields in your db, the auto geocoder will translate custom field (map_location) or whatever you set it up as, to geocode on first post viewm and write the lat long.

    So if the ADDRESS in custom field doesnt geocode, you can edit post, and update lat long coordinates, and pin will work on map.

    Shortcode the element you want to filter it by, limit the number of posts and some more options (all shortcode) and away you go.

    There is even an option for admin to drag the pin after publishing to update lat longs. You can use Firefox only to check this on a different site, add address, submit, then drag pin and refresh page. Lat Longs updated.

    Url is here : https://www.madenza.co.za/geocode-speed/

    Some weeks away from doing the docs, but will soon be breathing some new map options life into WP.

    Think it is a pretty comprehensive bug free product, tested on home page with 5k pins, some server issues, but still served all pins. Limit to 3k per url, and no issues

    I did update my name etc in settings, but I see I am Elizabeth again 🙂

    This is what the GMI map plugin looks like with the search function we have added to make GUI interface to browse the listings.

    If you add no fields and just hit search, see the map display with almost 7k pins.

    Started with docs, so will update soon …
