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.

Get Map Category Icons.

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

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?

Well....
By -

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!
By -

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+
By -

“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
By -

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
By -

Why?

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:

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 i have some questions all on MapSupreme for VANTAGE but comments are closed there – hope you can help

    1) Will Mapsupreme VANTAGE work (or be updated to work) with upcoming AppMaps plugin for OSM, leaflet ?
    2) Can the preview info box be set (in code or ui) to work on hover-over rather than click ?
    3) Is it possible in UI or code to make have 10 map pins linking to 10 different category pages
    4) Can a map pin icon for a subcategory be shown instead of the parent category?
    5) Can the category item list shown on the map be interactive so that categories can be added and removed on the fly ?
    6) Can different maps on different pages have different rules for which category pins are displayed ?

    thanks a lot 🙂

    chris

    • R Krishana

      please add questions/support related to forum.
      Here are the answer of your questions:

      1) Will Mapsupreme VANTAGE work (or be updated to work) with upcoming AppMaps plugin for OSM, leaflet ?
      =>Map will not work with OSM,leaflet directly. At this time there not any planing to upgrade the plugin. You can use the data processed but need to make the custom change yourself only.

      2) Can the preview info box be set (in code or ui) to work on hover-over rather than click ?
      =>We are using the function by google map library. Which dosen’t support the Hover event. Get more detail form : https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/events/

      Related code is:
      var myEventListener = google.maps.event.addListener(marker, ‘click’, function()

      3) Is it possible in UI or code to make have 10 map pins linking to 10
      different category pages
      =>Yes for that you need to change related detail link to category page as per you want. Any thing you can change shown on pin point detail box.

      4) Can a map pin icon for a subcategory be shown instead of the parent category?
      => No at this time the plugin will show category pin icon only mean for each category you should add pin icon url. For child category you can set same as parent category to show the people as you want.

      5) Can the category item list shown on the map be interactive so that categories can be added and removed on the fly ?
      =>yes it’s possible but you need to customize the plugin code.

      6) Can different maps on different pages have different rules for which category pins are displayed ?
      =>Yes for each category page you can see the category map listing for that category listing only with related pin points added.

      Thanks

  • chris

    Hi Vipul,
    thanks for the answers
    1) Vantage 1.2 release notes talk about AppMaps plugins that will allow the use of map APIs from Bing, MapQuest, Nokia and Leaflet. So there must be a plan for the plugin from Appthemes i think? It would be a pain if you could only use google with cluster pins and not leaflet.

    5) customizing code – is that something that already exists or start from scratch ?

    thanks for all the great help
    chris

    • R Krishana

      Hi chris,
      1) I will discuss with my team but not sure about future update.

      2) Customization mean you can use the processed data for script code. No need to code for that. Just need to apply the map code as per library given in user guide by map website.

      Thanks

  • DJD

    Hi, I’m considering purchasing this Theme and plugin, however I have a few questions.

    When using the mapsupreme plugin, can you view google map street view in the listing preview info box or in the actual listing?

  • Chris

    In the demo there is a place that seems to have the same address for the location, thus when i click on that group (with the number 2) it just stays grouped.

    Is there any way to fix it so that if there is a location in the same address, it will display both or something? Is there a way to turn off the grouping feature?

    Also, Am i correct in thinking that what happens with my site with this plugin installed is that it will load the web page first, then load the map after? thus the load time is not increased?

    Thanks, really would love to get this plugin!

    • R Krishana

      Hi,
      =>If more than one point is on the same location, it will show in group and will never separate as pin point. Because all are over lap on each other.

      =>If you turn off the feature then also it will be same as the point is overlap on each other and it will work like same points.

      =>Load time is for to load the data while you refresh the web page & as many number of listing as many time it will process to collect the data (the loading time), while once website data loaded javascript map will work and it never effect any thing.

      Thanks

      • Chris

        Im sorry im not understanding the last part,

        can you explain some other way?
        I’m using another theme and loading up 500 items increases load time by 13 seconds, will this theme + this plugin decrease this? How does it do this, im confused.
        If there are 50,000 items, the page will take a long time to load?

  • Chris

    One more question,

    does this map replace the sidebar map on each listing? if it does, can it support the get directions feature (not opening up google maps on a new page, but rather dropping down a turn by turn navigation below, like on the vantage theme demo)

    • R Krishana

      =>Yes the map is widget ready so you can use the widget in sidebar and set the width & height as per sidebar settings.
      =>We have set the get direction link on pin point popup. it’s better idea for user to get the direction map in new & big screen.

      Thanks

      • Chris

        Can i use the default map that comes with the theme on the single item listings in order to keep the little drop down box that gives turn by turn directions?

  • Martin

    Hi.

    In the demo, there isnt Map in each single listing (in the sidebar), like in Vantage default theme.

    Is it possible to have the map in the listing single page? (if not, I have to say its kind of a problem).

    Hi,

    Is it possible to have a large area map with colour regions? When a person clicks on a region, they are taken to a smaller map of that region?

    Thanks!

    • author
      Vipul

      Yes it’s possible but you need to do customization / add more development for that. Just like Create a image of full region image and create image map (by designer), You have to create different region map page with shortcode.

      The live scenario will be. When you click on full region image map, it will redirect you to the google map page created by shortcode.

    Hi there,

    I’m kind of disappointed after buying and trying out the plugin after finding out it do not have the options of adding events….

        Hi Vipul,

        Thank you for improving this plugin.

        I used the Appthemes updater today but it says my 1.0.9 Mapsupreme is up to date, should I delete the old version and re-download the new version again? Will my old setting retain?

    Hi! Just bought. Great plugin.

    But to be perfect, it needs to have the final rating in each google maps “bubble”. Is it possible?

    Thanks.

  • geoplaces

    While this feature is a good one but is not as good as the one in geoplaces offered by templatic.Check out the same functionality at http://templatic.com/demos/?theme=geoplaces

    Also it comes with the theme not as a plugin. Also, you can have different custom images for each category. I wish appthemes listens and provide similar functionality in the next release. If required, I can provide the code that came with the theme.

    • author
      Vipul

      Hi there,
      Apptheme have already the map with theme. Our plugin is not same same as templatic >> geoplaces theme, we are giving Google map Cluster map feature. We are not planing to add same future(as templatic >> geoplaces) for this plugin at this time.

      Thanks

  • rapidweb

    I just want to write a quick note here about this plugin. I am not affiliated with Vipul in any way like affiliated marketing (getting a commission if you buy it, etc). I just want to share my experience.

    I got this plugin because I really needed features for my Vantage sites that are not included in the original theme. I simply want to state that I am very happy on how it works and even happier with the customer service.

    I had run into minor issues on my site and Vipul fixed them for me each time. He even update the plugin a few times. He is really listening to his customers feedback and in this plugin keeps on getting better and better.

    The plugin started out as a shortcode. Not you can just drop it as a widget. And it has so many features that you control with just a click. Like “Group Icons” (the ability to CLUSTER multiple listings), hiding the map on certain pages, etc.

    Right now, on one of my sites, I used TAGS for certain areas as a travel guide. I need the category icons to display even on tag pages (a search result by tag). My example:
    http://koshertravelinfo.com/listings/kosher-vacation/ny-buffalo-metro-area/

    In less than 12 hours Vipul updated the code for me (and everyone). He has no financial reason to do this. He just has pride in his product!

    • rapidweb

      And yet again!!!! I needed the home page map to center in the USA, (looked very bad to have the entire globe zoomed in), but all others to zoom all listings, especially on tag pages, since I use tags mostly for “local” directories.

      Vipul did it for me for free!!!!! and FAST!!!! Great service!!!!

      Vipul, if you read this, please post how you did it. I want to know for future updates.

      • author
        Vipul

        I have added a code that set the auto zoom fit.
        for home page it will “false” while for other page it’s “true”.
        The code is something like::
        ———————
        if(is_home() || is_front_page()){$zoomfit=0;}else{$zoomfit=1;}
        ———————
        under “wpw_head_google_map_script” function.
        Thanks

  • gmssro

    Hi, i have a problem with the co-operation of this plugin with the Multi-City AV plugin. When I select a city, the search result are fine, but the Mapsupreme plugin map show all the entries, not just those in the selected city.
    The “Enable “Vantage Multi-City” plugin from google map” option on the map widget is checked, but it does not work.

    • author
      Vipul

      Yes you are right, the plugin will show all listing on the map & while you select any specific city it will just focus on it. Mean the map Center point will be changed as per location you have selected not the complete map function. So on front end you can see the city as center of your map.

      • gmssro

        Hi Vipul. Well, I expected the plugin to work as you described, but it does not. I just don’t know whether it is the fault in MapSupreme, or the Multi-City plugin 🙂 (and unfortunately the multi-city support does not answer)

        When I select the location, the listings are listed correctly (at the bottom of the page), but the map view does not change, does not centre on the selected city. The map still shows all the listing that are on the site, in all cities.
        You can see the site with a few test listings here: http://www.firmy.rimava.sk/
        Thanks

        • author

          Ok I get you, It may be case that you may have selected “Auto Zoom” option from plugin settings of wp-admin so it will not effected thought you are selecting city. Please check once.

          • gmssro

            Hi. I have turned off the autozoom feature, but the map still does not recentre when I change the town.
            And I would miss the autozoom feature 🙂 It is a great thing, always showing just the right area.
            It would be wunderful, if the city selection would cooperate with the auto-zoom 🙂

  • philco

    HI, i have just purchased mapsupreme and have found that it does not drop pins for each listing returned in the results. For example a search returns 12 listings (on one page) and the mapsupreme only shows 5. In another case the serach returns 4 listings and mapsupreme none.

    All listings have a full address, and all appear in the standard map. The issue has something to do with inserting the data into data.json file, only 51 out of 89 listings have been inserted. Yet all have a full address and show on the standard map.

    Please can you assist with seeing what has happened?

  • bdegnan

    I just purchased Mapsupreme. Love it! However, the map is blank in IE8 and good in Firefox and Chrome. Is there an issue with IE and, if so, a fix?

    • author
      Vipul

      if you want to show only event for home page map, you should make setting from plugin settings page as well on widget you add on widget area for the map.

      If you want to use shortcode or php code directly add in any php file you should follow below:

      Please see the demo links :: http://wpwebs.com/demo/vantage-gmap-plugin/events-map/

      All the demo links with sample code are in the menu.

    Can i enter a google api keya in this plugin? i have a problem with the limitations on my server

  • reservestudydotorg

    Hello,

    Many times the listing does not have a physical address. Is there any way to hide “get directions” when the first line of the address is “P.O. Box” “PO Box” or “P O Box” for example?

    • author
      Vipul

      you should edit the code to remove that. You should edit the file : mapsupreme.php from the plugin folder. Easily find the word “Get Direction” to find it easily.

  • komamakh

    Hi. Plugin is working strangely. I have 16 listings in total. The map is showing them all in the correct country, but it also shows 2 grouped listings in the US. I have no listings with a US address. The listing is fetched from Google+ somehow because it is not connected to my listing posts. How can I get rid of it? Need help, please.

    • author
      Vipul

      the listing ok is good but two list in US may be form events. Please check your settings, if event settings is set, you should disable it.
