Google Map Shortcode Reference

The Google Map Shortcode editor panel allows to set and insert the shortcode into your code, but it can be added manually using:

Shortcode for the content of posts and pages

[google-map-sc option = "option value"]

PHP code for theme files

<?php echo do_shortcode ('[google-map-sc option = "option value"]') ?>
