This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The plugin aims to provide a quick and easy way to store googlemaps on your blog. By storing maps, requests to google map api are kept minimum
and the possibility of not having a map show up on your page if google service is interrupted is reduced. Shortcodes are provided in the editor to make including a map you have created
even easier.

Planned extensions will include editable notes for map flags and ajax to make creating a map more intuitive and support for the javascript and google
earth apis.
