The wordpress plugin WP RSS Images was updating to include the media extension. Now you can include images to the rss using enclosure and media tag.
This is a step by step guide to use the Google Map Shortcode wordpress plugin.
As the plugin is based on wordpress shortcodes you can configure the defaults options on the plugin settings page. It can be found under Settings menu.
In this section you can set the default values for width,height and zoom of the maps, the html for the box opened by clicks on the points and you can upload new markers. The plugin includes several markers powered by Maps Icons Collection
You can insert a map into the content any time while you write a post. Just click on the Google Map Shortcode icon in the Upload/Insert section
After clicking on the icon in the editor page, the Google Map Shortcode panel is opened. On this panel you add, edit and deleted the points attached to the post. At the bottom of the panel there is a button that allows you to insert the map into the post.
The plugin allows to insert maps everywhere using the wordpress shortcode feature. For example in this case the map will display the points related to the post with id=1030. But you can include a custom icon, address,categories id (to display all the point attached to the post under this categories) etc. You can read more about the shortcode in this section.
[google-map-sc width="600" height="400" zoom="12" id="1030"]
The plugin is quite simple to use and can be implemented for very different purposes. For example in your theme deploying the posts as points in the maps for each category… Just think about it and post your experience and contribution. But if this plugin saves your day you can let me know by clicking on the orange bell.
