Known issues

Unfortunately there is currently one issue that cannot be resolved directly within Leaflet Maps Marker:

With WordPress 4.2, Emoji support was added. Unfortunately there is an open bug (details) which can result in frozen maps or crashes on Internet Explorer – so WordPress 4.2, 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 are affected. According to the related trac ticket, a fix is already available and will hopefully be deployed soon with WordPress 4.2.3.

As workaround until WordPress 4.2.3 is available you can only disable Emojis at the moment for maps to also work properly in Internet Explorer.

We am really sorry for this issue, but this is beyond our influence – we already contacted the guys & ladies at WordPress and hope that the fix for the Emoji/SVG bug will be available soon.

Outlook – plans for the next release

Please see the roadmap for a rough schedule for planned features of the pro version and please subscribe to this blog (via RSS or Email) or follow @MapsMarker on twitter (= most current updates) if you want to stay up to date with the latest development news.
