Awesome Features

Wishing I’d made use of this plugin long before spending money on the advanced version of another plugin which doesn’t even come close to what the Leaflet Maps Marker plugin achieves.

Amazingly this was also much faster to pick up on and understand than that other plugin I spent money on.

Thank you for this impressive plugin!

Great plugin!

About 18 months ago, I started using Leaflet Maps Marker in a site I was developing for a non-profit, which included both a business directory and travel directions to the town associated with that. Having done extensive research on what’s available out there with respect to this functionality, I found Leaflet Maps Marker to be 10 notches above all the rest. It’s been problem free, its developer consistency stays on top of keeping it current and adding new functionality, and stands ready to assist with quick answers to questions you send his way. 100 stars, boiled down into the five this rating system allows!

Ultimately professional

Being new to WordPress, but an “old hat” with GIS, I found MapsMarker to be an extremely professional solution in structure, presentation and functionality. While I know I still have many features to explore, I cannot wait for the Pro version. A particularly nice feature is the ability to integrate with a PC “GIS-feed”, e.g. from Excel, via MySql table import functionality. Excellent work.

Fantastic plugin

I am very impressed with the whole concept of this plug in. Does everything I want it to. My users should find the whole “navigation” bit very easy with it as well.

Best Map Plugin I’ve Found

I tried 2 other map plugins, and this one was by far the most user-friendly and feature-complete. One of the other plugins had a horrible UI, and wasn’t very clear how to achieve anything, and the other was extremely greedy, and required payment for even the simplest of features. I get supporting developers (I’m one myself), but giving someone a car, without the keys, isn’t acceptable; you pay for the new rims, and nitro upgrade, not keys 😀

As for this plugin, the UI is clean, the options described in a way that is easy to understand, and the flexibility is great. The best thing about this plugin, is the ability to add links (for free) to your markers on the map. I needed to make markers for restaurants and bars, and link to the corresponding pages on the marker popup, which this app allowed me to do, while others did not.

All in all, a very nice plugin, with (seemingly) great support, and a lot of great features. As long as the free version remains this complete, and the paid version brings more to the table, I’ll definitely support this plugin and developer.

Exactly What I Was Looking For In A Map PlugIn

For a free plugin there are more features than expected. I’m a newbie to WP so learning how to use it was a trial and error process but once I figured it out, MapsMarker worked exactly as expected. Thank you Robert, where ever you are!

A very unique plugin

A diamond in the rough. Last seen on craigslist. Frankly, I havent seen software in beta this useful since the late 90’s.

Phenomenal Maps Plugin

Longer review because I’m explaining how it works which I didn’t understand at first. But this is THE most incredible plugin. Here’s how it works in case you’re as new as I was.

You make an individual Marker Map showing one location (well laid out data entry despite its many options). That takes about a minute if you have the address handy. If you want a number of locations to show on a map, you create a Layer Map (again, easy data entry layout despite many options). And on the layer, you call in whatever Marker Maps you’ve created that you want. They’re listed below the layer map. Set the zoom level you want visitors to see on default for that layer, and that’s it, you’re ready to go. A Layer Map takes me about 2 minutes, max. Plus, if you forgot to assign your markers to a particular layer, there’s a bulk-action setup so you can select the ones you want to assign to that layer all at once. Sooo friendly!

Next, when writing posts, there’s now a button next to “Add Media” which is “Add Map” and whammo, your individual marker maps and layer maps are listed. Highlight which map you want in the post and hit “Insert map” and in comes the bracketed shortcode. Place it wherever you want the map to appear within the post, and presto. Done deal. No glitches, no confusion. Easily changeable.

Pop-up balloons on Marker Maps are either defaulted to show, or set for click-marker-to-show/hide, your call, with each one individually. You can put anything in those pop-up balloons you want. This is sooo easy, sooo user friendly (both backend and frontend) and everything works. I did have a glitch on the free version which disappeared when I downloaded the “free 30 days trial full version” and it may well have been something I was doing but I’d suggest starting with the free version just to see how it works, but as soon as you’re thinking you like it, go to the 30-day trial. LOVE this plugin! I use a ton of maps and they have to be VERY flexible. Heads, tails and bodies over the other two map plugins I tried. Just no freaking comparison at all.

A Perfect Balance of Control and Simplicity

Installed this plugin on multiple client websites. Very very very rarely have any issues. It is both simple to install and use… But provides an enormous number of customization options for the advanced user.

Plus, it’s cool that you can show other maps than just Google (but of course, Google Maps is an option too!).

I don’t even look at other maps plugins any more.

A very full featured plugin

I find that once you get used to this plugin, it’s one of the best map displays for WordPress that I’ve seen. I have seen I think most all of them and they don’t compare to Roberts version.
