This plugin is a friendly integration of Google Map into your blogs.

The plugin is based on WordPress shortcodes, so it can be used like a tag into your content and allows multiples parameters to customize the map and markers behavior. The editor button allows to add the shortcode attributes easily.

On the Google Map editor panel you can add points to the maps, change the map configuration and look how the map will looks like with a “Preview Map” button.
Once you add new point it is attached to the post and you can deploy it on any map in your blog using the “id” or “cat” attributes in the .

The plugin also allows to customize the “Info Window” editing the html and using some parameters like: Title, Description, Thumbnail, Link, etc.

If you want to focus a specific point in your maps the “focus” attribute should be used. You can use the point number or focus = “all” to rotate all the points. The focus feature can be based on “center the marker” or “open the marker” . For more details visit the Shortcode reference section.


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"]') ?>

To see the list of the shortcode options visite the Google Map Shortcode Reference page.

For more details you can visite the how to use section.


The plugin allows to add points and maps easily including titles, images, descriptions and animations; but if you want to extend the functionality and interaction of your maps, some modules are available. They can include slideshows, custom scrolls and more. Visit the modules page for more details.

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

  3. Hi,
    first of all. Thanks for the pluging. I have a little problem with the center option of the map. There are a few points that show outside the canvas, but it could be inside with the same zoom. How could i fix it? In the last version all work fine.
    The other dubt i have is about the mouse scroll. I cant desactivate it. I try everything…


  4. This plugin was working great and suddenly it started to show multiple markers for one location. It was due to some upgrade I guess. I have different projects(category with different posts) each post has its own marker. Now the problem is that plugin is create extra markers. I add one marker(point) and an extra marker is created automatically which has nothing in address. I even tried to delete all the points with empty description for database directly but when I refresh my page containing the map all points are created again. I could not find the cache for this plugin either. Can somebody help me?

  5. Hello there,
    thanks for this plugin. But when this plugin is used with Google Analytics for WordPress Version 4.2.4 | By Joost de Valk it doesn’t work.
    That is just a small bug fix kindly update function.php files line 141 to the mentioned below.

    $find = array(“%title%”,”%link%”,”%thubnail%”, “%excerpt%”,”%description%”,”%address%”,”%open_map%”,”%width%”,”\r\n”,”\f”,”\v”,”\t”,”\r”,”\n”,”\””,”\””);
    I hope you will update that in the next release.

  6. Hi

    is it possible to remove the “open map” link from the boxes that pop up on pins?

    great plugin by the way.


    1. Hi there,
      Did you find a solution to this? I’m trying to remove the “Open map” link too, but haven’t found a solution yet.
