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.

    Again, and again and again and yet again Vipul is surprising me with his outstanding customer service!!!!! I had another plugin that conflicted with MapSupreme. The other plugin author (paid plugin) would not help when I believe it was something in their code creating the conflict. Vipul logged in to my WordPress site and made adjustments. Customer service MONTHS AFTER THE SALE does not get any better than this. I highly recommend this plugin for its features and usefulness to any Vantage site plus the very great outstanding customer service provided!!!

  • reservestudydotorg

    I had a similar GREAT experience, Vipul is great. Thanks for a great plugin!

  • Wiki biashara

    Hello Vipul

    will this plugin work well together with “User Locator for Vantage”


    • author

      the plugin will not work with “User Locator for Vantage”

      it working with, Multi-City AV.


      • clearspark

        Hey, I’d also like it to work with “User Locator for Vantage”. Would this be a difficult modification? Thanks.

        • author

          “User Locator for Vantage” allow user to set value in cookie so first time map now allow to show as per location, once you have set the :“User Locator for Vantage”: settings, from next time you can see the effect of map.
          as the cookie affected not on same loaded page. you can simply get relate lat&lng value from cookie and apply for google map.

  • gpetar

    If I understood good, cron job need to be executed to include new listings on map, right? It can be done manually whenever I want?

  • gpetar

    When using Mapsupreme, all listings are shown on map. But, if I go to category page, then again,all listings on category page are shown whic is not good, and not like on default version where only listings for that are category are shown (what is logical). Can this be set that on category page map is showing only listings from that category (instead of all listings)

  • gpetar

    There is some problem with map when I look it on my other monitor or tablet, This is print screen:

    On demo,it is normal,so I guess there is solution. What code I should paste to have map always properly stretched ,depending on resolution? thanks

    Hi Gpetar,

    You may not added map via widget from wp-admin > widgets > mapsupreme map

    Because while you add map via widget it will add CSS class “mapcontainer_widget” while you see the page source, you can get it in our demo as well other user site. While you don’t get in your page website source while display map.

    Please make sure you working right way. As your site design is also not display properly because if you use widget the design will also look good as per demo.

    The demo :


  • gpetar

    what is maximum size of custom made icons? Can they be bigger? thanks

    • author

      by default you can show maximum of 8000-10000 records,
      We have given option to change the maximum limit of as per your server capability. As for some server the higher number may not supported so we have set good value as possible for all kind of server.

  • gpetar

    Currently small window popup with basic info when I click on icon. Is it possible to have that window just on rollover, when I am moving mouse over icons?

    • author

      It is not possible for rollover while mousehover as on home page, we show all listing which cannot be roll over. At this time you can click the pin details & see the details on new window while click on it.

        It seems I am having a problem. Everything is fine upon click on index page but on any of categories page,when I click icon, thumbnail is covering text. Why this is hapening.

        this is a sample:

        • author

          it seems like the css of below details are effecting for that.

          On line : 938
          the css class : .listing_thumbnail
          CSS code :
          .listing_thumbnail {
          background-color: #FFFFFF;
          border: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
          left: 5px;
          max-width: 50px;
          padding: 3px;
          position: absolute;
          top: 26px;

          In above css class the position: absolute; is the main section which creates problem. Either you should remove it or need add new css below in last line of your style.css file

          #vantage_gmap .mapinfo img{position: static !important;}


          • gpetar

            I ‘ve added last line and it is ok now in google chrome, but same problem is still there with Internet explorer ?

  • gpetar

    PLease take a look here at subcategory:

    Custom icons are showed but on index page ,or category page , default icon is used? Why is that?

    • author

      it shows only : nsport-logo.png

      It mean either you have set that icons for category “Spisak popusta – N Sport” or it may be default icons so in that case you may not set the category icon as I have check all other category and subcategory all has different icons showing on the map.
      So you have to check wp-admin > listing > category > edit category “N Sport” >> check the pinpoint icon.

      • gpetar

        I am not sure that I understand or I dont see that option. I did a print screen of category page. Is this ok?

        • author

          I will like to know when do you have change the category image, do you have tied to refresh the map data for home page, from wp-admin > Listing > Map Supreme settings > Refresh data.
          It will refresh the home map data file. Because it is cron job and always run for every 24 hours. So in case you have change the category image and want to see the effect for home page, it will take 24 hour automatically while if you want quick effect you should go to settings page and refresh the data.
          let me know still any problem.

          • gpetar

            Of course. It is set on 1 hour , but I am doing manually refresh with every change

          • author

            Yes I am checking your site again and found that the listing page is ok but for home page, if you see the category listing, there is not the related category “N Sport”, make sure you don’t have deselected that category while doing settings for map on plugin settings page. If possible would you please PM me the wp-admin login so I can check it and have quick solution.

          • gpetar

            There is no reply option on last message so I will answer here. You are in right, it wasn’t checked in plugin settings. Now everything is fine, but I have another problem. I’ve enabled grouping, but nothing is hapenning, even after manual refresh of map data

        • author

          You should create forum topic for more discussion because of limitation in comments here.
          Regarding to group settings, if you are using widget settings, all related settings are from widget itself. You can see it.

  • gpetar

    Is it possible to have grouping only on index page and that on categories, grouping is disabled?

    • author

      it is possible but there is not any direct interface in the code. If you are using widget, you should make condition adding in php code to make it work.
      if you like you can ask our developer but you should pay $10 for 1 hour fees.
      You can PM me your details so i can continue with developer.

  • tsetsaf

    My experience was poor. Plugin broke my Vantage install. No help from author or Appthemes

    • author

      plz make sure you have properly experience the plugin. Because we have solved about more than 500 copies and no one had any complain related to search broken problem. We are sure that it should never occur because our plugin only add google map via widget, never using any wordpress action hook/filter to do that. Just simple widget code which adding google API code.
      If still feel the problem you should confirm with us, please send your temporary wp-admin details so we can check it once before say you any thing. If we cannot solve your problem, we surely refund you without any argument.

      Our developer team was working same features for bind but still not all features are supported. We facing many trouble for development so we stop development for now.
      We are in progress to give new update in same plugin with some error solve & design change of popup.

  • akoetsier

    Hi Vipul, i have added your plugin/widget and works great but i cant get the zoom to work. I want to cover 3 countries, with a higher zoom, but it doesnt work and stays at default.
    Any chance you have a fix for this ?

    • author

      To zoom as per you want you can manage central zoom by setting central map zoom lat & lng fro plugin settings page.
      The main thing you should disable the autozoom settings.
      Even you can use multicity plugin if you want city wise filter.

      Or you should add manually shortcode OR php code as per your location lat & lng value. Get more details from readme.txt file.


  • inspireme

    Heres what I want : As a user moves around the map, new pointers are added based on the centre location. I want the drop pins to show a number until a user zooms in closer and the pins will un-cluster into listings. Will this Plugin do this, or at least be a good starting point to achieving this by modding it. ?

  • sergio_altuzar

    buy the mapsupreme but I can not install it. page not displayed. and assign permissions to 777 data.json and “count”: it is no longer 0, and assign lat and lng. dont know what else to do.

    • author

      it seems there are 2 data in data.json

      something mistake in your settings. so please either PM your wp-admin details or email to info(@)
      with your comments so we can get you easily.


  • bizewomen

    Can the Map Supreme be added to an individual listing and used to show local area resources? My directory lists housing communities and would like an interactive map to add libraries, hospitals, restaurants, grocery stores etc?

    • author

      yes the map is added for home page, listing pages & search page.

      The widget have option to either show or hide for home or category listings or search page.


    • bizewomen

      I am so sorry I did not make this question “Can the map with local area tags be used in the listing sidebar widget for a specific listing”?

  • André

    How the map handles multiple listings from the exactly same location? Are they grouped in one icon or only one of them is shown in the map?


  • sergio_altuzar

    how I can change the color of business icons and events? my map shows all red and I want to differentiate between events (blue) and Business (red). Thank you.

    • author

      the icons are manageable/changeable from category add/edit page.
      You can see the map icon option from where you should insert icon url as per you want.
      The icons should be uploaded on media and get image url after uploaded. Insert same url in category icon section.

  • kesaven


    I have installed the plugin on my site here: It is working correctly and I am quite happy with it.

    However I have a question. I would like the map to show Mauritius by default and set a custom zoom. is it possible?

  • sergio_altuzar

    How do I can close the preview of the company, on mobile devices? thank you

    • author

      you cannot hide preview of company in mobile device. You should hide the map only. Related option added in plugin settings.

  • Francis

    Is there a way to make the category of the listing appear within the description itself?

    • author

      what you want to say exactly by ” make the category of the listing appear within the description itself”?

      • Francis

        When you click on a pin, you get the details for that business listing, I was wondering if we can add the category where they are stored as part of that information.

        • author

          While you click on mapsupreme plugin pinpoint, it will open the popup while you click on pin point. And inside it will shown the business details accordingly to what ever category you have selected form settings.

  • shayatik

    Sorry, I’m missing something here.

    I installed the plugin and set the permission of the json file. Now what? How do I add the map to the homepage instead of the the vantage map?

  • alvaro_v_b

    Great plugin!
    A couple of questions:
    – Would it be possible to show the rating of the business in the info that appears in the map when you hover the mouse?

    – Would it be possible for a user to filter the category of business that wants to display in the map?


    • author

      — To display rating you need to customize the plugin.

      — From wp-admin > plugin settings > you can select the category and it will display only on them home page map.

      • alvaro_v_b

        Thanks Vipul,

        Regarding first question, it would be very nice that the rating is shown in the map with the rest of the information. Think about a lot of restaurants and that you are checking the map. It will be necessary to visit the profile of each of them to know which is better rated. That is not convenient and on the other side, this is the essence of the rating. Directory websites usually show the rate in the map…

        Regarding the second question, I meant for a visitor of the website. If he wants to display in the map just one category of the business, can he just filter one category?

        Here you can see a very good example of the two functionalities. I find them essential for a business directory:

        • author

          HI i have checked your comments it seems like we would like to add rating show/hide option from settings.
          But we are not planing to display the category filter option as display in the directory theme because we have already that functionality in our classipress map plugin :

          It was difficult the display group with category filter. Same way the problem of display more than one listing for single address. But may in future agenda we will discuss with team but not sure about it.


          • alvaro_v_b

            Thanks for your answer. I didn’t know your classipress plugin, and it looks great.
            That category filter in the map is exactly the funtionality I miss in your plugin for vantage. Sorry I didn’t understand well, did you mean that you have already that funtionality?

            About showing the rating in the map profile, did you mean that you have already that option in the admin dashboard?

          • author

            Related to ratings, I mean we will add the option in new version soon.
            The category functionality is not in the vantage map plugin it is only in classipress map plugin. I wanted to mention that it is difficulty while we have added map feature of grouping and category filtering. As both may not work together. So for vantage map it is group pinpoint feature while for classipress map it is category filter feature. We will look the feature is possible in feature. Not sure about.

        • author

          we have updated plugin with review added in popup.
