Is Maps Marker Pro compatible with Gutenberg / WordPress 5.x?

Yes, Maps Marker Pro is compatible with WordPress 5 and the new Gutenberg editor. For general minimum requirements of Maps Marker Pro please see this FAQ.

For a future release we also plan to add a custom map block, which allows you to easily search and add shortcodes for maps (until then you need to copy and past the shortcode for a map into a block):

Step 1 – copy the shortcode, e.g. from the map edit page

Step 2 – paste the shortcode into the Gutenberg editor, which results in automatically creating a shortcode block

If you see the error above when trying to activate Maps Marker Pro, this usually means that the PHP version used on your server is too low. 

Maps Marker Pro requires at least PHP 5.4 to run properly, anyway as PHP 5.4 is already outdated and does not receive updates (including security fixes!) anymore since September 2015, we stronlgy recommend to a currently supported PHP version (7.x).

To fix this, please either switch your PHP version through your hosting control panel if possible or contact your hosting provider support to switch the PHP version for you.
