Free v3.10.1 with support for reponsive tables on backend & bugfixes is available

v3.10.1 adds support for responsive tables on backend as well as bugfixes and updated translations – please read below for more details.

For even more features and optimizations (see the comparision page), please use the integrated pro upgrader to start a free 30-day-trial of Maps Marker Pro.

Pro v2.6 has also been released today with the following highlights:

  • updated Leaflet from v0.7.5 to v0.7.7 
  • improved backend usability by listing all contents (posts, pages, CPTs, widgets) where each shortcode is used
  • added option to sort list of markers below layer maps by distance from layer center
  • highlight a marker on a layer map by opening its popup via shortcode attribute [ mapsmarker layer=”1″ highlightmarker=”2″ ] or by adding ?highlightmarker=2 to the URL where the map is embedded
  • added support for URL hashes to web pages with maps, allowing users to easily link to specific map views. Example: https://domain/link-to-map/#11/48.2073/16.3792
  • XML sitemaps integration: improved local SEO value by automatically adding links to KML maps to your XML sitemaps (if plugin “Google XML Sitemaps” is active)
  • added support for dynamic clustering preview for multi-layer-maps on backend
  • added option to hide default GPX start and end icons (thx Rich!)

An update to the latest version is – as always – highly recommended.

Now let´s get to the highlights of free v3.10.1:

added support for responsive tables on “list all markers” and “list all layer” pages

Before v3.10.1 the backend pages “list all markers” and “list all layers” did not render properly especially on mobile devices  – this has now been fixed as you can see from the following screenshot:

responsive-tables

other changes and optimizations

  • added automatic check if custom plugin directory name is used (which would break layer maps)
  • added new CSS class lmm-listmarkers-popuptext-only to allow better styling of “list of markers” entries
  • increased minimum required WordPress version from 3.3 to 3.4 (upgrade to latest version is advised anyway)
  • tiles for default custom basemap2 “Stamen Watercolor” are now delivered via https to prevent mixed content warnings (thx Alan & Duncan!)
  • updated minimum recommended PHP version for built-in PHP check to 5.5 – supporting wpupdatephp.com
  • updated jQuery timepicker addon from v1.5.0 to v1.5.5 (bugfix release, full changelog)
  • updated jQuery timepicker addon from v1.5.0 to v1.5.5 (bugfix release, full changelog)
  • removed support for directions provider map.project-osrm.org as requested by project owners
  • optimized headings hierarchy in the admin screens to better support screen readers

Bugfixes

  • incomplete map tiles display after device orientation change on mobile devices (thx Duncan!)
  • search on settings page did not display “no matches found” if there were no search results
  • maps in tabs or accordions created with “WPBakery Visual Composer” plugin were broken since v4.7 (thx Raitis!)
  • directions provider openrouteservice.org changed URL schema, this resulted in broken directions links
