Takes time to set up
By -

I’ve managed to set this plugin up OK, but it took several days of emailing the author about different parts, namely thr Google Maps API Key and the actual map itself as it was positioned over the Atlantic Ocean every time it opened. I don’t live in the middle of an Ocean.
Eventually I found that the person who places the ad needs to be precise when giving their address so the map knows where you live.
Now it works every time you look at it. Not a bad plugin over all.

5 stars
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.

J’avais des problèmes avec autres plugins.Il a fonctionner de suite.
Avec une catégorie “évènementiel”,il rend bien service pour les intinéraires

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.

    How will this handle with classiestate? Will it map all listings including real estate?

    • R Krishana

      Hi TJ,
      The mappress plugin display all the ads listing on the map. I just check the classiestate demo and they don’t have change the post type so the plugin should work with it.
      Thanks

  • mahi

    This plugin looks awesome (Y)

    definitely going to try it soon

  • TJ

    Do you think you can place a few examples of real estate properties in your demo that are close to each other so I can see them by a city view instead of a national view?

    • R Krishana

      Your suggestion is appreciate, but I have added many categories and I have set the map zooming such a way that it cover all most ads I have added. Then also it should work with classiestate theme.

  • jbub

    Will this work with the classisky child theme? Can you set it up to work with only some of the categories like real estate but not for other categories like jobs ..etc. Thanks

  • xxmmodexx

    Hi

    i just bought the plugin but have a trouble for me to install them

    do you have css script for this ?

    so i can just add them.

    Many Thanks….

    • R Krishana

      hi there is not any external css for the map and map related css is added just above the map code. I will like to see your site, what problem do you have?
      Please PM me. and please add such problem in community instead of as comment so other user can have also find the solution if they face such problem.
      Thanks

  • Fanatic

    Hi Vipul,
    I noticed the Vantage version is a bit “prettier” with additional features included compared to this one aimed for CP, for example, the Zone listing feature (When multiple ads are within the same area).

    Although CP’s version allows us to filter the displayed ads while Mapsupreme doesnt have that functionality, thats one good thing.

    My real question is: Would it be possible to automatically enable enable the Map display based on the category type?
    Reason I ask is: I wouldnt want the map to show up if the ad category is, let’s say, Items, yet I would want it to show up if the category is “Venues”.

    Is this functionality possible to integrate with your plugin? Which is a great one by the way.

  • Fanatic

    Sorry forgot to include one additional question: Since I didn’t see it in the demo, is it possible to include a Widget map in the Single ad listings that can showcase “nearby similar ads” based on that current category the user is viewing? If not, is this something that you might consider implementing?

  • R Krishana

    Hi Fanatic,
    Yes via the code given in readme, you can show the map on category listing page. You can see the demo site for more detail.
    Thanks

  • Fanatic

    Ok I saw that, great, would it work for the Tags also? For example this one here: http://wpwebs.com/demo/mappress/ad-tag/av-sons/ I dont see the map?

  • Fanatic

    Yup I already use the Php excecute plugin for widgets, but I was wondering if it can display the ads related to the current ad the user is viewing, the ‘narby similar ads”

  • Ybub

    Is there any instructions on using the map? There several basic things that I need to set up.
    1. Focus only on two specific zip codes.
    2. Make the map narrower on the header.
    3. Change the icons being used.
    4. make is so that the map will not zoom in and out. I find that it is too easy to put your curser on the map and by accident find yourself looking at the world from outer space.

    Thank you, Jon

  • Alex

    Hi,
    I have 2 questions about your plugin.
    I want to know what happens when 2 ads have the same address? (2 pinpoints or 1 pinpoint with a tooltip who list the differents ads )
    Is there a limit for the number of ads displayed on the map?

    Thanks.

    • R Krishana

      Hi there is no limitation for display listing on map. If there two point with same address, It will will display two points but on front you can see only one at a time. If you select/un-select the checkbox, then only you come to see both points show/hide as per your category selection.

  • Alex

    Ok thanks,
    so if there are 2 ads in the same category at the same place, the map will only display a pinpoint even with maximum zoom?

  • eberth

    hi, my classipress is ver 3.0.5.3, the map work for this version?

    Hi Friends we don’t accept custom work but in some case we help customers paid support for clients. But it means we not sure to work for you every time.

    Why I commented this?
    because few time before one of client “garone” send me PM for map related to custom work and we were busy to develop other projects so we cannot give him reply. If you see they given very bad rating for that. This is not the way of doing so. You only give rating of our product not for the custom work which is out of our service.

  • bennad

    is it possible to change the content of the info-window/tooltip when a user clicks on an icon

    • R Krishana

      Hi there,
      To change the content of the info-window/tooltip when a user clicks on an icon, you should have little knowledge of technically PHP & javascript.

      Follow below instructions:
      — change in file :: mappres.php (inside the plugin)
      — you need to change in 2 php functions & 2 java script code
      — In “function wpw_mappress_gmap_json_data” function change “$pdata_arr” array and the javascript code “var message = ”;”

      — In “function wpw_listing_n_search_gmap” function change “$data_arr” array and javascript code “var message = ”;”

      If you see both place && you see how the code is working and what change you need to do. If you want to change the code backup the file before do any change.

      Thanks

    Will this plugin work with mobile devices?
    If not, can I insert the mappress code in the header so that mobile plugins like wp mobile doesn’t try to render it?

    Thanks.

    • R Krishana

      Yes the plugin work with mobile plugin but you have to set the width to 100% to make it appear properly in smaller devices.
      Thanks

  • Pete

    Does the mappress automatically create a pin for each classipress ad? Can I only display featured ads?

    • R Krishana

      Yes MapPress create pin point automatically and display on map category wise as per settings from plugin wp-admin.

      Right now it’s display all ads not featured ads.

      Thanks

      • Pete

        last question, where does this plugin install the mappress? Can I move it around in my wordpress to different pages? Where can I find instructions to do this?

        • R Krishana

          You can use map shortcode and add it in any page or post detail page. Get more detail from plugin settings page.

  • jenlove

    You know what would make this perfect? If you included a switch of some sort so that you could open and close it as needed.

  • A

    Is there a way to group pins when the map is zoomed out and as you zoom in the grouping spreads out to show the individual mapped locations?

    Also, the mappress settings to select certain categories to show up on the map isn’t working. Anytime I specify which category to display the map shows up blank. Any idea what is happening?

    • R Krishana

      You need to make custom change for that as in the current feature of map there is no such grouping facility available only filter facility.

      The category will appear only if the there is a single ads is assigned to that category with proper address. So you please make sure the category you are selected has at least one ads.

      Thanks

      • A

        Hi, I have 3 categories all with at least 1 ad. But still the mappress will show up blank when I select one or two of the categories to display in settings.
