Post Google Map WordPress Plotting Plugin

Fresh off the dev table is our newest plugin, Post Google Map.  This plugins allows you to add addresses to posts and pages.  These addresses are then plotted on a google map in your sidebar when viewing the post or page!  It’s a great way to localize your posts, news, stories, events, etc.

Google Map Widget ScreenshotHovering over a plot will display the title of the post, address, and also a thumbnail from the post if any images exist. Easily add and delete a single or multiple addresses to each post.

Viewing a single post displays only addresses attached to that post/page, viewing any other page will show the most recent plots across your entire site. You can also set a custom title and description for each address saved. If no title or description is entered the post title and excerpt will be used.

  1. Great plugin for WordPress, but I can’t work out how to add an address.

    I am using WordPress 2.8.2 and the add address screenshot above is not in the settings or the post edit…

    Please advise how can I add an address, or navigate to the add address screen

  2. Hi,
    On your #4 instruction which is—
    4.) Add the “Post Google Map” widget to your sidebar or use shortcode [google-map] directly in your post/page

    WHAT IS THAT SHORTCODE [GOOGLE-MAP]?.. any instructions for that..so I can post the map in my post/page?

  3. What is the proper method to get Lat/Log to show on a map? Regular addresses work but I can’t figure the syntax for getting an entry to show using the Lat/Log coordinates
