We are thrilled to present Maps Marker Pro v4.26, a release packed with remarkable new features, significant enhancements, and crucial bug fixes. As we continue our journey in offering the most advanced mapping solution for WordPress, this release paves the way for an even more refined user experience.
Stay updated with Maps Marker Pro to reap the benefits of these advancements and to ensure the smooth functioning of your map-related tasks. Dive into the highlights of this release below:
We’re excited to introduce LocationIQ as the new default geocoding and maps provider for Maps Marker Pro! With this update, accessing essential geocoding services is easier and more convenient than ever before!
LocationIQ will be default geocoding provider for all new installations, existing installations will not be changed. Same is true for LocationIQ as default basemap, which will be the default for new installations only.
Migrating data can often be a daunting task, especially when upgrading from older versions of our plugins. Recognizing this challenge, Maps Marker Pro v4.26 now provides compatibility to migrate data from any previous Leaflet Maps Marker or Maps Marker Pro lower than 4.0. This ensures a smooth transition without the loss of crucial map data.
For more details on migration see the related FAQ.
In this release, we’ve enhanced the marker date functionality. Not only can you change the marker date,
but you can also choose to display both dates in the marker list. Additionally, there’s an option to show a prefix for the marker list date, offering more clarity and context to your users:
The marker search functionality has received a significant boost. With the new option to fit markers after searching in the list of markers, users will find it easier and more intuitive to locate and view markers, especially in densely populated map areas.
This option is enabled by default.
Backing up and restoring your map data is paramount. With v4.26, we have entirely rewritten the backup and restore functionality, making it more robust, reliable, and user-friendly. Safeguard your map data with confidence, knowing that restoring it will be seamless.
The backup and restore feature can be found on the tools page:
Ensuring that your mapping library is in top shape is crucial for the smooth running of any mapping application. With v4.26, we’ve introduced a Leaflet library sanity check, allowing you to more easily diagnose and rectify any issues with the Leaflet.js library.
