Leaflet Maps Marker v2.0 is available

Free-Version Releases
Attention: this is not the changelog for the latest stable version 4.29 (see related release notes)

Actually I wanted to include more new features in v2.0, but Vincèn today informed me about a bug on installations with French as a language which caused marker and layer maps to break in backend area. So v2.0 gets release today with the following highlights:

Geo Sitemap support

Once you’ve created your markers via Leaflet Maps Markers, you’ll also want to be sure users can find your KML files using Google Search, take advantage of Google searches to drive traffic to your content.This can

On the marker and layer listing page in the backend you will find a new link “Geo Sitemap” next to the Wikitude-Export link.

By clicking on this link, you get the url for the geo sitemap and see its contents, for example: https://www.mapsmarker.com/wp-content/plugins/leaflet-maps-marker/leaflet-geositemap.php

Currently you have to submit your geo sitemap to Google manually. In one of the next versions I plan to ping Google automatically.

New mass actions for selected markers only

With the introduction of multi-layer-maps in v1.7 some users were asking for better ways to delete and assign selected markers only. Till now, this was only possible via Tools for all markers of a layer.

With v2.0 I added a “mass action box” on the marker listing page, which allows you to delete and assign only selected markers. I hope, that this feature will help those of you, who organize their markers in many different layers.

Updated French translation
