Maps Marker Pro v4.10 – with minor optimizations and bugfixes – is available

This release includes some minor optimizations and bugfixes.

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

Now let´s get to the highlights of this release:


improve geolocate error reporting

If a user has disallowed geolcation or if there are any other geolocate errors, those are now displayed as modal window on the map:


add custom classes to marker icons

Individual marker icons can now be customised via CSS more easily, as CSS classesare added to each marker (e.g. mmp-marker-icon-1)


add informal German translation

We now also added an informal German translation. Additionally the German translations (formal+informal) are now also used automatically if Austrian or Swiss is set as language in WordPress or your user profile.


bugfixes

  • fix duplicate entries in markers list
  • set correct canonical link on fullscreen maps
  • do not overwrite existing license keys after activation or update
  • fix geolocation out of bounds message
  • geocoding error messages were not displayed
  • fix multisite key distribution
