Was browsing around the forum regarding the ability to use custom map markers for each location via ACF as well as using ACF/WP Categories to filter on a WP Go Map. I understand this was in the works, if not already done? I don’t see this anywhere in your documentation regarding the ACF.
1) Can each location dynamically being pulled from ACF have its own custom map marker, set within each post perhaps using an ACF image field for example?
2) Can we use ACF Taxonomies, such as a CPT’s category as categories to use to filter locations within a WP GO Map?
Please let me know!
Thanks.September 12, 2023 at 9:32 pm #78440cjavierParticipant
Oh, and I forgot…
3) Would it be possible to show other ACF field content from a CPT in its infobox when you click on a marker?
As for my first two questions, if it’s possible to even just show a different map marker set in ACF per category, instead of each post, that could work too since you can set an ACF Image field on taxonomies, for example.September 13, 2023 at 7:50 am #78446MatthewModerator
Thank you for getting in touch with us, we do appreciate your time.
Yes the ability to change from native categories created within the plugin to the WordPress categories was introduced in the latest V9 Atlas Novus update, however, unfortunately we do not have full documentation on this yet.
Note that in order to find this setting, you will need to be using the Atlas Novus build (Basic V9 + Pro V9 required):
1. Ensure that you are using the “Atlas Novus” build (Maps -> Settings -> General Settings).
2. Navigate to Maps -> Settings -> Categories.
3. Set the “Category Source” from “Native” to “WordPress”.
This will then allow you to use the WordPress categories within your marker and for filtering.
Regarding your questions, please see my response below:
1) Unfortunately setting a custom marker icon for ACF markers is not supported at this stage, however, we would like to introduce this in the future.
2) We currently only support the native categories created within the plugin and WordPress categories as category sources at this stage, however, we may look into this in the future.
3) Our ACF integration currently only displays the post’s title, link, content, featured image and ACF Google Maps location field. We do hope to allow the ability to pull and display other ACF fields related to the post, however, this would only be in introduced in the future.
We hope this answers your questions?

Appreciate the reply. Fortunately sounds like these baseline features may be acceptable enough to get started with your paid version. Will move forward soon.
