Mapster WP Maps


Mapster’s on a mission! With Mapster WP Maps, we’re trying to make the best map editor and creator available for WordPress. So many of the existing plugins out there are outdated, difficult to use, and, worst of all, hide really basic features behind a paywall.

Check out Mapster WP Maps Pro for much more advanced features such as mass editing, huge imports, store locators, hover styling, and more.

With WordPress Maps, we currently integrate MapLibre (the open source Mapbox), Mapbox, and Google Maps.

Learn more about the plugin, get started, and check out the documentation at

You can use this plugin with or without access tokens and API keys, however you need.

A few features across different map types include:

  • Live map editor as you change and edit your map
  • Ability to add circles, markers, text, lines, polygons, and popups to your maps, and style them in many ways
  • Unlimited number of maps, unlimited features and markers
  • Control over map size, display, controls on the map, interactivity, and more
  • Integration of location searches, directions plugins, and more to come

We have a feature request forum open where you can feel free to submit feature requests and we will prioritize and respond to these.

This plugin effectively replaces our previous WP Mapbox GL JS plugin, which was a bit old and difficult to develop. This new plugin is much simpler to use and allows much more efficient development and bug fixing.

We have some FAQs and instructions up at, with more coming in the coming months! Please hit us up with any feature requests or bugs that you run into.

Makes adding custom (eg. Mapbox styled) maps and placing markers etc. such a breeze and it truly has a lot of customization options. Ran into a bug with the category filter, after an update, but the matter was quickly resolved. I contacted support and got a beta fix within 2 days, very quick and friendly developer!

It is a fantastic tool, lots of space for customization and the developer is answering quickly. Lots of support. I use it for my travel blog and I am very happy.

This plugin offers lots of options to create custom maps, popups, markers… as this is a new plugin with a big feature set, there were a few issues, but the developer is very responsive and solved it in a day. I could not find any other plugin that offers so much functionality for free, highly recommended.

Victor has done me so many solids in being super responsive and helpful as I use my half-baked tech knowledge to create a robust membership map for a nonprofit. The newest version of this plugin is incredible. Intuitive, flexible, with lots of great features! And I don't need to do coding. Love the design and style options, many of which can just be toggled on or off. And free? Why are you even responding to me when I don't pay you money? The Pro version of this will be superb, I bet, and well worth it. Unreasonably good plugin from an unreasonably good-hearted company.
