What does it do?

An awesome map with features like: multiple regions as tabs, no API keys needed, frontend location adding, marker clustering & beautiful map and marker styles.

If you want to focus on letting your visitors add markers by themselves check out my other more popular plugin Open User Map. It’s based on this plugin but has a lot more features.

Open User Map

Look at the Demo and use-cases here. You can even add your own locations right away. Give it a try!

Showcase widely distributed locations on a single map with additional navigation tabs for regions. The map is based on Leaflet JS and offers you several free map styles. So you do not need an API Key, Access Token or any other external registration. There are no API request limits.

Adding locations is as simple as dropping a location marker on a map. You can search for addresses worldwide to quickly find the right spots. Use the Gutenberg Block to integrate your map or place the shortcode anywhere on your site. Close by locations will group together in clusters. This is optional.

🎅✨ The PRO Version now has a free 7-day trial period. No credit card required!

Let your visitors “fly” back and forth between widely distributed locations with the additional area navigation

Make use of Areas (Regions) to provide different focus points to your visitor.

Your visitors can add locations directly inside the map (frontend) [PRO Feature]

Just by clicking a “+”-Button a form will popup to let them enter location details the same comfortable way you do it in the backend. After submit the location proposal will be “pending” and wait for your review approval to get published.

List of free Features:

  • based on Leaflet
  • no API Keys
  • multiple map styles
  • multiple marker styles
  • locations with images
  • Shortcode with optional attributes
  • Gutenberg Block
  • marker clustering

PRO Features 🚀🚀🚀:

  • Frontend adding
  • Admin approval for pending locations
  • custom “Thank you”-message
  • More beautiful map styles
  • More marker icon styles
  • Direct support from the developer
  • Access all future PRO features
  • Request for features

A possible use case:

You have offices in Europe, Asia and North America and don‘t want to include a whole world map or three separate maps for that. This plugin let‘s you set multiple focus areas within one map. Your visitors will switch (literally ”fly”) between your focus areas just by clicking the links on top of the map.

Another use case:

You have several stores in different cities. Your site visitors will be able to ”fly” between the cities to get an overview of the exact locations inside every city. You can set the zoom level for every area individually.

…and another use case:

You want to build a map service where your visitors can add locations on their own. This could be a travel blog or a something like our map with 500+ kite and windsurfing spots worldwide.

அடிக்கடி கேட்கப்படும் கேள்விகள்

Do I need an API Key or some external registration?

No, the plugin is based on Leaflet.js and offers you free map styles that don’t need any kind of registration.

How to integrate the map?

Use the Gutenberg Block “Locations and Areas Map” or just place the shortcode [locations-and-areas-map] anywhere in your content or integrate it within your theme template with PHP:

echo do_shortcode("[locations-and-areas-map]")

you can also override the initial map focus with shortcode attributes:

[locations-and-areas-map lat="51.50665732176545" long="-0.12752251529432854" zoom="13"]

Can I set the initial map position individualy?

Do I need GPS coordinates?

No. Add a new location or define an area view simply by droping a marker on the map. You can search for addresses as well. If you want to use GPS coordinates though, there is an option for that.

Can I use Gutenberg?

Yes! You will find the “Locations and Areas Map”-Block under widgets.

I’m ussing this plugin instead “WP Store Locutor” because the google api restrictions with the payment method, this plugin is using openstreet maps. Is very simple to use, just put latitude and longitude data from your location to make the marker point on the map and that it’s all.

It does what is says without issues. Wish there would be an option for vertical tab display. Sometimes the tabs don’t fit, especially when there are too many locations to display.
