Good Plugin.... well worth the price
By -

I installed MapPress a few days ago, smooth installation and it worked instantly. For some reason I couldn’t get other free map plugins to work on my site. I’m somewhat of a beginner and had some trouble figuring out how to add MapPress icons and setting up map sizing but I eventually figured it out. My recommendation is for better documentation for non-experts to set up and customize. Having said that, it is working good for me and I’m happy with it.

Hi odddic,
The problem is multiple Google Map API call on single page multiple time, none of google map will work for this page. To solve the problem remove those API url from other code and place in a single file.
Thanks

Great plugin, some initial issues but Vipul helped resolve. THANK YOU!
By -

Initially I had some issues with this map working with my site, but the developer was responsive and eventually worked out the issue (some conflict with my site) and updated a new version to work for me.

Thank you very much. It now works great and I love this plugin. A wonderful feature on my site!

Horrible Horrible coding
By -

This plugin is absolutely awful, It doesn’t work out of the box, hard to find where to set the location when creating and editing ads, impossible to display the map for the single ad.

About the coding is horrible, Impossible to read and follow the logic, POOR coding standards, and everything fitted in two files, hard to read and hard to customize. And lack of filters!! How is this possible in a Plugin made for a theme which relies on hooks for everything??

PLEASE DON’T BUY

Absolutely unfinished and raw option. I even refused to return the money, when I saw that this option is useless and complicated to install. It is a pity the lost time and money.

I had problems with other plugins.Il has run away.
With ” events ” category, it makes good service for intineraries

Probably one of my the best buy ever
By -

This plugin brought a great added value to my site for a little financial investment. Timewise, it took me only about 10 minutes to get it installed and functional. A potential enhancement could be to adapt the list of returned objects in the search when changing the zoom area on the map. Great plugin!

I can see why some of the beginners would have trouble setting mappress up. the readme.txt lacks some details for a smoother install. But those with some html experience will be fine. Aside from that seems to do the job well. I’ll have to follow up in a few weeks once i get some feedback from the clients on my site.

I still do not function
By -

I was unable to configure it, I find the lack of more tutorials with step by step information for beginners like me. They enter the code, but I see enough details to set it up and add the parts of code needed to work, I think I should do it more specific for people like me with almost no experience. If I can help I would appreciate.
thanks

It Needs Further Development
By -

Map markers persist even after ads have expired. So if you leave expired ads on your site (for SEO purposes), your map will soon be over-crowded with out of date map markers.
Long ad titles do not auto line-break and so can create very wide info-balloons.
A search function would be nice.
There is already a WordPress plugin called MapPress (which I have also bought), so it would have been better to have given it a unique name.

    HI to add map for home page you should user the php code ::
    –> Add Below code in header.php of theme root to show map on home page
    You can set width & height as per your wish.
    ————————————————————————-
    if(is_home() || is_front_page())
    {
    $arg = array(‘w’=>’100%’,’h’=>’400px’,); //w=width & h=height
    do_action(‘wpw_mappress_gmap_code’,$arg);
    }
    ————————————————————————-

    The shourtcode should work for all page content automatically. Not sure about your problem. I will check and correct if any such problem.

    Thanks

    Hi FR_mauricio,

    If you can see the demo with featured slider is working ok.

    It seems like it is child theme problem and if you want to solve the problem, you should provide me wp-admin access so I can check it from wp-admin.

    Thanks
