            Hi Jon,
            are you taking about map plugin settings page or the settings while you add new ad for CP?
            if you getting problem while add new ad in CP then the apptheme member can give you better solution. Because once ads added and related map values like lat & lng stored which ads, then only the map start working. Make sure you are not using older version of CP.
            Thanks

    Hello, I’m very interested in buying this plugin, but I would like to know the following:

    1. Does it allow to set the default radius for search results?

    2. Does it allow to set the maximum number of pins to show the map?

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    • author
      Vipul

      Hi Katra,

      1) no you canno se the for search result as by default it will display complete map as per settings on plugin settings area.

      2)yes by default it will display more than 5000 pinpoints.

      Thanks

  • katra

    Thanks for your response Vipul, But what i ment for question #1 is:

    Classipress has a “search by radius” feature, Will this map plugin show results according to the radius i enter in the radius field..? or will it always show the entire map of the US..?

    Thanks. hope to hear from you soon!

      No the map will display as per settings of plugin settings of wp-admin but yes it will display only those ads as they are display in the search.

  • cpires

    How can i desactived the map in same pages like:

    — ADD NEW AD
    — BLOG

    Thanks

    • author
      Vipul

      The map will display only for home page or category page as per the guide in readme.txt file.
      If you want to display for all pages and want to remove for specific pages you should add condition like

      if(is_page( array(‘about-me’, ‘contact’ ) ))
      {
      //map will not display for this pages
      }else
      {
      $arg = array(‘w’=>’100%’,’h’=>’400px’,); //w=width & h=height
      do_action(‘wpw_mappress_gmap_code’,$arg);
      }

      where — ‘about-me’ AND ‘contact’ are page slugs

    Is it possible to get Mappress to display on category pages when the category does not have listings? My site has some categories that are empty for the time being, but I would still like Mappress to show up on those category pages, even if it is just an empty map.

        It is already working like that only, if there is not any listing for category page, it will never show the map.

          Hi Vipul,

          Thanks for responding. You say if there is no listing for a category page, it will never show the map. I would like to change that – I’d like to show an empty map in that circumstance instead of no map. Is this possible?

          • author
            Vipul

            actually in the plugin code we have added condition like “have_posts()” then only it will display.
            In your case you may need to find and do customization in mapress.php file.

    Hi,
    Why is the map not showing on custom taxonomy pages?

    • author
      Vipul

      the Map display on for category, tags and search not for any other custom taxonomy. To display in other taxonomy of ads you have to change and add taxonomy in below condition.

      as per code you will add in header.php
      global $wp_query;
      if($wp_query->queried_object->taxonomy==’ad_cat’ || $wp_query->queried_object->taxonomy==’ad_tag’ || is_search())
      {

      }

    hello I am having problems with this plugin. The plugin was working wonderfully, and when I was just about to make my website lebscout.com go live, it stopped working. I didn’t modify anything from the time it was working until now.
    I couldn’t login to the website because I was recieving a fatal error message from the plugin.
    The plugin was inactivated with and now I cannot reactivate it and I am receiving the same error message.
    The message is :
    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare add_term_meta() (previously declared in /home3/aymans87/public_html/wp-includes/taxonomy.php:1571) in /home3/aymans87/public_html/wp-content/plugins/mappress_/map_functions.php on line 58

    Can you please update your plugin to work better on mobile phones, ipads, tablets, etc.. different screen sizes?

    I think you should spend some time upgrading your plugin to make it really much better as it has so much potential to help so many of us to make a big difference on our sites. However without your time spent to upgrade this to the responsive web standard in this smart phone tech era, it is impossible for us to really make our classipress site any better than the big ones that exist already.

    I personally am willing to pay for a monthly update subscription fee of usd3 to usd5 per month if you can continously bring in good and quality updates monthly, which matches todays Google standards for websites to rank better on google. Right now Classipress as a whole is not at this level and the mappress plugin is no better, but the potential is really so great here.

    I was wondering if the mappress plugin results show all the images for that result? I.e. can a user can see the images for that result in that popup window, or would they have to
    click into the link “Ferrari F430…” to see the images if we are looking at your example above?

    Additionally, I see that mappress plugin works with google maps. Does it
    use the Google places API web service to return the results I want ( on top
    of the google maps API)?

    If so, can i extend the functionality of the listing posts returned on the
    map to include additional links (not just link to the detail page, address,
    and business directions). In fact, what fields are available in the
    results popup
