Mapsupreme for Vantage

Live Demo

Mapsupreme is a plugin helps to add Google Map in your Vantage theme through short-code or action hooks. It gives a Clustered Google map or a grouping Google Map with colorful Icons.

You can set the map center point as per your city or region from the plugin settings. The map lists all listing & event posts with colorful grouping icons. If you want to change icons, you can change from “icons” folder in the plugin folder. On individual pin point click, a user can get the listing image, title with link, address, website, phone.

The main feature of the plugin is the data json file. All listing information is stored in one data file which is stored in plugin(mapsupreme) folder so every time it requires no server load time to collect data for the map. This helps the loading and processing time.

You don’t have to worry about the new/updated listing as the data file will refresh on each time period you have set from plugin settings automatically. And if by mistake any listing is not loaded then from plugin settings, you can reload the map settings and refresh the data file with just a single button click. It’s so easy!

This plugin works with Vantage only. It is compatible with WordPress Multisite.

A few things...
By -

A few things which you might be able to address in your next release:

1) The usage instructions on the Listings/MapSupreme page don’t match the installation instructions in the ReadMe file (turns out, I didn’t need to edit the header file at all, which I thought was rather un-user-friendly, nor did I have to get coordinates for each listing like I thought I was about to have to do).

2) Having two different zoom settings is confusing. If I set zoom to 2 in the widget and 3 in the settings, 2 is the one that takes affect, but yet I have to set the latitude and longitude for the widget in the settings page.

3) Along those lines, it’s very difficult to get the map centered just right because you have to keep going to Google Maps to get a new set of longitude and latitude coordinates, which is really, really not user-friendly

4) I can’t get the icon legend to show, even though the checkbox to hide it isn’t selected anywhere (and I’ve tried checking and un-checking).

5) Having to have the URL for an icon to change it isn’t user-friendly either.

6) When you change a setting and press ‘Save’, one would assume you don’t then also have to press ‘Refresh data now’. Can’t you just refresh on the save? What else would it be saving if not the setting I just changed?

7) Also, why is it necessary to press the ‘Set lat & lng’ button? Can’t it just do that on activation?

All in all, I can see that a lot of work has gone into this, and it has some really nice features. I eventually got this thing working somewhat satisfactorily (except for the hidden legend), but I would advise that it needs some tweaking, particularly with regard to ease of setup, before it’s ready for prime time.

Nice tool... I like it
By -

I just bought this plugin and I have installed it and it works great. Unfortunately, the option to integrate with the Multi-City plugin is not working.

I hope it is simply a bug that they can quickly fix.

Not that good
By -

Not that satisfied. Offers some simple features but it has no css styling and also comes with crap like:
Premium WordPress Themes

Why do that for a paid plugin?

I got it with all my excitements but I have no map yet. I have asked for help but haven’t seen any seriousness from the the writer. Plus it requests to set permission at 777 or 776, something with security risks for any website. My host do not recommend it. Bottom line, I don’t have a map and I haven’t seen keen interest from them.

Luv it!

The best plugin I bought so far. Would luv to have the map display the pop-up listing message for latest listing on the map by default (or can set as option on the admin setting). It can give hint to user that they can click on any of the marker and see the pop-up listing.

I give the Mapsupreme plugin an A+

“The Mapsupreme plugin is a must for anyone that has a need for a map on their website.

I love the changes that they have made to the new version. It looks and functions perfectly.

The version 1.1.4 is easier to use and understand then the earlier version. Also, the way that it is now configured, it allows for much faster page loads. I would highly recommend this plugin.

The support for this plugin is as good as it gets. Vipul will stay with you until you are satisfied with the product. You won’t be sorry purchasing this product.

I give the Mapsupreme plugin an A+”

Horrible horrible experience

Plugin broke my Vantage install. I was forced to completely start from scratch and even go as far as installing a generic geo mapper plugin from WordPress plugin library. No support from Vantage or plugin author (oh I am sure he/ she will chime in here after the fact and say I did not give them enough time). Appthemes suck and so does this plugin. Buy at your own risk AND backup your db and php before installing.

Must have plugin for Vantage

Adds lots of functions missing from the main theme like special map pointers.

The support is very good. In fact, Vipul more than once logged in to my site and fixed problems (upon my request).

The plug-in keeps on being updated. In the beginning you had to use short codes. Now you can just use it as a widget. Just drag the widget where you need it.

The options are constantly updated. For example, there is an option now to hide the map from the front page. Hide on tag listings, etc.
I used it already for two clients:

Cool Map Plugin with excellent Support

Map worked “out of the box”.
Imho it´s a MUSTHAVE for all Vantage users, because it fixes a lot of “map-needs” which we were missing in the Theme.

    Hi Tim,
    Would you please share your site url with listings name so I can check it and if any problem or suggestion, let you know please.
    Because of sometimes same/near location listings display for same pin only. Also make sure the plugin settings and your new added listings is added accordingly.
    Once again please check same listings for category page.

    • Tim

      I just sent you an email. I don’t think it’s possible that it’s an issue with being close to another pin though because it’s the only one in that area of the world, for hundreds if not thousands of miles.

      I welcome any other thoughts or suggestions, as this is really stumping me.

  • Dan

    Tim I looked (probably right in front of me) I want to the default display set to show “Recently Reviewed”

    Thanks !

  • bidawinner

    Hello carpediemtim . I simply want to display on the Map the Business that have Recently Reviewed or Highest Reviews (Using appthemes Vantage)

    In VANTAGE Theme you can select how to sort the Business Listings .. alphabetical- newest listing-random – Recently Reviewed – Highest Rating Etc.. So how to use that SAME sort on the Map ?

    • carpediemtim

      Haha, it’s funny that I’m getting questions, and I’m merely another customer.

      I do actually know the answer to your question though, or at least one way to accomplish that, which is in combination with the Home Control for Vantage plugin. I mean, that’s how I do it, although I’m not sure if this is entirely necessary to use both in tandum.

      I use Home Control to show only the top 5 rated listings on my front page (for faster page load times), and then in Map Supreme, I select the option for the map to only show the listings on the page (not all listings). So by doing that, I’m only showing the top 5 rated listings on the page, which could be adjusted to whatever number you wish, and I believe the same could be accomplished with the most recently reviewed listings with a little more adjustments to the home page so that it only shows the most recent ones.

      Does that make sense?

    HI bidawinner,
    There is not such options or code available that display map like Business Listings .. alphabetical- newest listing-random – Recently Reviewed – Highest Rating Etc..

    Current plugin have only feature to display all latest listings on home page, category wise listings and search listings on map.
    You may ask for customization as per your demand because for home page it is only all latest listings and not any dynamic settings as per selection.

  • bidawinner

    Hey Vipul.. put carpediemtim on your support team.. no pay but just a few comps ..Lke a Beach House , New Ford F150 etc.. :mr green:

    HI bidawinner,
    your suggestion is appreciated.
    by the way working ok may be sometime maintenance problem.

  • MM

    I bought custom pins thinking that it would solve my problem (though I like their pop-up design better), but they can’t do the following:
    1. Homepage map location to be centered by a custom lat and lng
    2. Custom zoom level for this map
    3. Option to show all listings on the map and not just those showing in the listings below the map (for example if I do 10 listings per page under the map, I don’t only want just 10 pins on the map, I want all of them).
    Can Vantage Map Supreme fix all of these issues??
    If you tell me they can – I buy (but please don’t lie!!)

    Hey Vipul, any word on when this plugin will be updated? It’s really important to my site, so I can’t update my site to the new version of Vantage until you update this to pull from the new format of listings.

  • author

    Hi carpediemtim,
    Actually we have discussed with theme developer and they also using similar plugin feature so now we have to update such a way that we follow them and add our feature. So sorry for the delay but we are working on upgrade and hopefully will update within a week.

  • author

    we have updated plugin so now it is working ok for vantage 4.0+ also.

  • Alvaro

    Hi!! one question, is it possible to have a checkbox beside the legend with the icons in the map, so it’s possible to activate or deactivate the icons displayed in the maps?
    If a user is only interested in one type of listing, he should be able to just check that kind of listing with a check box, and not display all the others.

  • author

    Hi Alvaro,
    for current version of plugin checkbox selection option is not added because it create very confusion and duplication of listings for same listings in multiple category. So such feature we have not added and we are not planing to add it in future because vantage theme itself have added map and may be they add more features in future…

    • Alvaro

      Thank you for your quick answer, Vipul.
      If you want the point of view of a potential costustumer, it makes no sense to me that the users can not filter the map to see just the type of listing they are interested. I have seen this feature in many directory websites (ex. and it’s basic. Why If I am looking for “bakeries” the map could be full of other icons for “butcheries”, “supermarkets” etc…. ?
      If a listing is in more than one category, it will appear when any of those categories is marked. You may have a similar problem now: if a listing is in more than one category, which icon do you display for it?

  • author

    HI Alvaro,
    Yes you are right but we have already added grouping facility for this map. if we try to add both feature together(grouping of pins and checkbox filter), it create problem for use. That is only reason why we don’t have added it. For experimental purpose we have added it for ClassiPress map ( both features (grouping of pins and checkbox filter) but then also we have to give option to either work one function at a time and sometime it not working ok for all users. That’s why we have avoided to add checkbox feature for vantage map.

  • Alvaro

    Ok, I see, but in MapPress there is not the detail of the reviews (rate of users) when you click on an icon, is that a functionality that can be activated in MapPress, or the plugin has not the functionality?

  • Alvaro

    Can you give me an example, in your Live version, of “listings for same listings in multiple category” so I can understand it? is it a listing appearing in more than one category?

    With vantage 4.1 is there any easy way to make our directory an iOS or Android app?

    Hi Sergio Altuzar,
    You may need to ask it for apptheme core theme and you should generate topic in vantage forum for more help.

    Hi Vipul.

    Your demo link is not pointing to Vantage 4 as mentined. I’d like to see it in this specific version. Can you fix the link? So, I can try it and order an upgrade for this plugin.

    Vipul, what’s the relation between mapsupreme and the Vantage’s standard map?

    Will mapsupreme replace the maps used in the widget “Vantage – Single Listing Map & Contact Info)” in Single Listing Sidebar and “Vantage – Listing Refine Search” in Search Listing Sidebar?

    Does the plugin identify the users position in order to locate/show the nearest listings?

    The Vantage’s standard map or search mechanism, that calculates the nearest listings based in a arbitrary start point/coordinates, as you can see and check with the followed link. What about Mapsupreme’s search behavior?

    Link representing a search for address “399 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA”, that is a exact address of one listing, and it appears in 3rd place instead of 1st.

  • author

    HI André,

    Mapsupreme is not same as Vantage standard map.

    For mapsupreme data home page map data cached and display without server load time.

    In initial vantage 4 version it was display map settings via widget and it was just remove vantage map and display mapsupreme map but since last update of vantage 4.1, this facility gone.

    Now you can display only for home page by drag and drop widget in “Homepage” widget area.

    We will update the plugin soon as per new vantage update because vantage theme have almost similar features in their map.

    Automatic user location not display as per visiter on map and same for search.

    The map will display automatically as per list display for search page.


  • Judit

    Hi, is it compatible with wordpress and DIVI theme?

  • author

    Hi Judit,
    If the DIVI theme is child theme of Vantage theme then this plugin will work for it.
    The plugin only working with vantage theme and related child themes only.
