WP Map Markers


Add new locations like posts with the Location custom post type. Display maps on your posts and pages with a simple shortcode.

Create an unlimited number of maps and display markers on them with infobubbles that show the post thumbnail and other useful information.

The map interface lists locations near you and allows you to search with autocomplete and filter by features. The features are terms from a custom Feature taxonomy. Add as many filters as you like.

Choose from different marker icons.

Follow this plugin on Git Hub

New in version 1.1

Add your own custom marker icons by uploading them via FTP to wp-content/plugins/wp-map-markers/markers


Ex: [wpmm_map map=”1″] where “1” is the ID of the Map found in the Map category for the locations.

The map slug is found on the list of maps page.

Insert a map easily by selecting it from a dropdown menu located in the post editor

Maps don't work, probably because you can't enter an API key.
