    Dear WPGM,

    I am looking for an option to choose whether the handler for importing csv files is “,” or “;” because European/German csv fields are separated by “;” not by “,”. I tried to edit the source code and changed

    line 1839 in wp-google-maps-pro.php to:

    while (($data = fgetcsv($handle, 1000, “;”)) !== FALSE) {

    but I this does not to address the field separator, doesn’t it? In fact, I do not like editing thinks, therefore an official solution would be great!

     

    Secondly and even more important:

    I managed to upload a custom csv file successfully (manually edited replaced “;” -> “,”)  and I can see the mark in the marker list BUT they are not displayed on the map. Why is that? This is VERY urgent for me.

     

    King regards,

    Sebastian

    Hi Sebastian
    When you upload markers using CSV you need to include the LNG and LAT of the marker as the plugin does not geocode every line item upon importing.

    You could use this tool to geocode each address and then upload the CSV file correctly.

    Kind regards
