upgrade to leaflet.js v0.7.1

leaflet.js v0.7.1 fixes 7 bugs, especially for older Android mobiles. See detailed changelog for more information.

duplicate markers feature

As requested by some user, I added the feature to duplicate marker maps. This can be done in the list of markers (bulk action is also possible):

duplicate-list-of-markers

Duplicating markers is also possible on the markers edit page by the new button “duplicate” at the bottom:

duplicate-marker-edit-page-button

option to use Google Maps API for Business forcsv/xls/xlsx/ods import geocoding

By default, Google Maps API allows 2.500 geocoding requests per day and IP. Google Maps API for Business in contrast allows up to 100.000 geocoding requests per day. Within the importer you can now also configure your Google Maps API for business account:

google-maps-api-business-config

Other changes & optimizations

  • geocoding for csv/xls/xlsx/ods import: if Google Maps API returns error OVER_QUERY_LIMIT, wait 1.5sec and try again once
  • optimized backend pages for WordPress 3.8/MP6 theme (re-added separator lines, reduce white space usage)
  • geocoding for MapsMarker API requests: if Google Maps API returns error OVER_QUERY_LIMIT, wait 1.5sec and try again once
  • hardened SQL statements needed for fullscreen maps by additionally using prepared-statements
  • change main menu and admin bar entry from “Maps Marker” to “Maps Marker Pro” again to avoid confusion with lite version
  • removed link from main admin bar menu entry (“Maps Marker Pro”) for better usability on mobile devices

Bugfixes

  • broken terms of service and feedback links on Google marker maps
  • broken Google Adsense ad links on layer maps

Outlook – my plans for the next release

A great sideffect from fixing the Google ads bug for layer maps was that I found a way to integrate Google Street View within the map 🙂 So filtering of layers will be postponed to v1.7 and focus of v1.6 development will be the integration of Google Street View.
