After nearly 2 months of development we are happy to announce the availability of Maps Marker Pro v4.15.1
For details and highlights about this release please see below. An updated to the latest version is – as always – highly recommended. If you access to updates and support has expired, please click here for more information on how to optionally renew your access.
improve database performance on maps with a large amount of markers
We optimized the performance for maps with a large amount of markers – the more markers are on a map, the more pronounced this improvement will be.
improve error reporting and error handling
The error reporting and error handling for AJAX request and errors has also been improved with v4.15.1 – it is now easier for you to identify issues with AJAX requests (which from our experience are most often caused by third party plugins or security configurations and also result in Maps Marker Pro not working properly).
Other optimizations and improvements
- add sanity check to scheduling values
- automatically activate batch update map settings when changed
- optimized backend geocoding logic
- update Leaflet-Geoman to 2.9.0
- update ESRI to 3.0.0
- update Google Mutant to 0.12.0
- update leaflet-locatecontrol to 0.72.2
- fix jump-to-shape button in draw tab
- fix gap when list of markers is shown below the map
Thanks to 210+ translators this release also includes some update translations, see full changelog for details.

How to update
The recommended way to update is to use the WordPress update process: login with an user who has admin privileges, navigate to Dashboard / Updates, select plugins to update and press the button “Update Plugins”. The pro plugin checks every 24 hours if a new version is available. You can also manually trigger the update check by going to Plugins and clicking on the link “Check for updates” next to “Maps Marker Pro”.
If there is an update available, please start the update by clicking the link “update now”.
If you try to update from v3.1.1 or lower, please see this user guide in our knowledge base for installation instruction and a migration tutorial.
