Map Options:

  • Map ID – The map will be assigned a number only after the map is published. This number will be used in shortcodes when placing a map on a page or post.
  • Mode – Select from the dropdown menu whether you would like to display a Google map or a custom image.
  • Enable Search – This is where you can determine to include search capabilities.
  • Enable Filters – Here you can specify if you want to include a dropdown menu containing pre-defined filters.
  • Default Pin Image – Upload a default pinpoint image here. You can have as many unique pins as you like on every map. If you don’t assign a pin image to a location on a map, it will use this as the default pin image.
  • Enable zoom – In Google mode, you are able to “lock” the map so it is unable to zoom in or out.

Image Mode Settings:

  • Map Image – When using custom image mode, you need 2 images: one that appears by default, and one that appears when the user zooms in closer. The default view is the smaller image, the zoomed in view is a larger version. Each image must have the same aspect ratio for zoom to properly function. You may upload both images here.
  • Tooltip Background Color – Use this color picker to select the color of your tooltip.
  • Popup Background Color – Use this color picker to select the color of the popup gallery.
  • Map Background Color – If a transparent PNG image is used for your map, you can use this color picker to select the color of the background for the map. (PNG recommended)
  • Map Drag Momentum – This controls the “drag” feel of the map which is similar to Google Maps. Leave blank for default. Higher number means a higher “drag” feel.

Google Map Mode Settings:

  • Mode – Select the Google Map style here
  • Search Radius – Specify in miles the search radius in which location results will be displayed.
  • Center Map on Search Results – Enable a function that will auto-center your map on search results. this is useful if planning to have your map displayed on a mobile device.
  • Main Location – This setting is for creating locations. However, you can use this to automatically center your map on a specific location.
  • Initial Zoom – Set your default zoom level – this is helpful if you want to zoom in on a specific region or country/state.

Be sure to Publish your map.
