Map It! is a flexible, developer-friendly plugin to help take the tedious coding out of adding maps to a website that can mark geographic locations related to posts. The whole point is to let you choose the types of posts, the display and the formatting of maps markers and data to best fit your needs. Over time, more specific customization features will be made available to developers as well as extensions for the non-technical user to take advantage of the base plugin in new and useful ways.
If you are a developer and are missing a way to add a customization, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure we consider it for future releases.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
/wp-content/plugins/directory or extract trs_mapit.zip in that location
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Add the key to the settings package
- Select post types and start adding coordinates
- Add the shortcode where ever you want your map to appear.
Can this work with all post types?
Conceivably, yes. The plugin setup screen allows you to select which post types should allow the settings for mapping to be entered. Can’t say there isn’t a post type out there that won’t work, though. Really?? Prove a negative?!?!? 😉
What about different markers? Things for each type of post? Categories? Address lookups?
We’re working on those as extensions to the basic plugin as well as trying to add hooks for developers to do their own thing with it. If you have a suggestion let us know!
