WP Google Maps – Latest Release

January 13, 2017 11:13 am Published by 11 Comments

WP Google Maps has recently released a handful of exciting updates. Although WP Google Maps has never been shy of comprehensive functionality, these updates introduce some handy, new features.


Our focus for this batch of updates revolved around the importance of our users and making their experience with our map plugin the best possible experience. We allocated a substantial portion of our time to ensuring that usability needs are met; removing all known bugs from the plugin and add-ons and enhancing both minor and major functionality.


VGM Add-on Version 3.00

Our Visitor Generated Marker Add-on now has Auto-Complete functionality and enjoys a neat, new home:


Gold Add-on Version 4.02

We’ve tackled the problem of having markers with the same (or very close) latitude and longitude. We’ve introduced a new feature called New-vicinity marker control that can be customized in the Maps -> Settings page.


WP Google Maps Version 6.4.0 Basic and 6.10 Pro

With extended map functionality, such as Full-Screen Map Mode, added shortcode attributes and improved marker control, WP Google Maps is more customizable than ever!


This is another achievement for the leading WordPress map plugin and setting the bar high for many more exciting updates to come!

    Sounds like a great update. Is the new update compatible with WordPress 4.7.2? I’m looking to do updates on my site and don’t want to break it. Thanks!

    • Veronique says:

      Hi there. Our plugins are always tested to ensure compatibility with the latest version of WordPress. 🙂

      • Lydia Diaz says:

        Really? Well, your plugin is not compatible with WordPress 4.9.1, the latest release. I can’t use this or the Premium one that I purchased. I’m ready to ask for a refund. When will you be updating the plugins?

    Looking for a simple way to click on a polygon linking user to another URL.

    • Veronique says:

      Hi there. Polygons have a link field by default. However, this means the user will still need to click on the link once the info-window opens. Please get in touch should you wish to make code changes to force the polygon to auto open the link on click.

  • Scott Davey says:

    The whole polygon should be a link to me that’s how a lot of maps seem to work not a pop up title?

  • Kate says:

    Will you be adding an iframe embed function? This would be hugely welcome addition!

    • Perry says:

      Hi Kate

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Depending on your use case, this might already be possible.

      May I contact you personally on the address you registered with to discuss?

      Kind regards
      – Perry
