    I’m setting up the Advanced Custom Fields integration on my site, which is running the Pro version 8.0.28 of the plugin. Is it possible for categories to also be dynamic?

    For context, I’m building an apartment search site where each available unit will be integrated from ACF. I also need to display above the map a category list (e.g. Studio, 1 Bedroom, etc) where users can filter the map results of available units. For simplicity, I’d like our admin users to not have to jump out of ACF and into WP Google Maps in order to associate a category with each unit.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jeff

    Thank you for getting in touch.

    It sounds like you’re looking to use your WordPress taxonomies with our ACF integration, as opposed to our plugins native category tree.

    If that is the case, we actually have an experimental feature which let’s you select the WordPress taxonomy tree for category filtering.

    Would you be interested in trying that out?

    Kind regards

    Hi there

    Please can you go to https://github.com/CodeCabin/wp-google-maps-force-wordpress-category-tree and select “Download ZIP” on the right hand,

    Please then take the zip and upload that to your plugins panel on the site in question,

    This will force WP Google Maps to use the WordPress category and taxonomy tree.

    Please note that would need to be programatically changed back if you need to restore the default behaviour, you can do that by changing “wordpress” to “native” in this plugins PHP file.

    Does that help?

    Kind regards

    Thanks so much for the speedy reply! It’s working with the default WordPress categories. But is it possible to make it work with a custom WP taxonomy?

    Hi Jeff

    That’s not possible at present unfortunately, sorry about that,

    We are exploring this for our upcoming 8.1.0 release.

    In the mean time is there anything else we can help you with?

    Kind regards

    No worries, we can change our taxonomy structure to match this functionality. Really appreciate the help.

    Hello,

    I installed and activated this plugin and it works to a point. When I went to Maps –> Categories to update the icons, I received a fatal error. Here is a screenshot of the error.

    Please advise. Many thanks,

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you so much for getting in touch and our sincerest apologies for the delay.

    Could I kindly ask you to confirm what versions of WP Google Maps and WP Google Maps Pro are currently installed on your site? (Plugins -> Scrolling down to the relevant plugins)

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Kindest Regards,
    Steven De Beer
