Free v3.10.2 with bugfixes and small optimizations is available

v3.10.2 solves a bug with layer maps that was caused if other plugins also enqueued the Google Maps API as well as some other smaller optimizations and bugfixes. 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 v2.6.1 has also been released today with the following highlights:

  • significantly decreased loadtimes for OpenStreetMap-based maps by supporting conditional & deferred Google Maps API loading (~370kb(!) less uncompressed data transmission)

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

Changes and optimizations

  • enqueue Google Maps API only if not loaded yet (which caused layer maps to break due to recent API changes)
  • Tools page/move markers-bulk action: multi-layer-maps are now excluded as markers cannot be assigned directly to multi-layer-maps (thx Andres!) 
  • version number in plugin backend header now always shows the currently used version and not the latest one available (thx Duncan!)
  • sort “list of markers” for multi-layer-map selection on layer edit-pages by ID ascending

Bugfixes

  • responsive tables were not shown correctly on some devices (column with relative instead of absolute widths)
  • fix for “WPBakery Visual Composer” plugin v4.7+ introduced with v2.6 did not work correctly on all sites
