Another small update to which adds language support. Currently the only languages supported are English and German. If you would like to contribute and translate WP Geo into your language please get in touch.

German Translation

This release also includes many fixes including the following:

  • Google maps not loading for widget in some circumstances.
  • Maps break if post title contains apostrophe.
  • Options are registered correctly for future versions of WordPress.
  • Maps now zoom correctly – not snapping to marker.
  • Added domain check so maps will not show or cause an alert if accessed through a proxy server (like Google cache results).
  • The max-width style has been removed as it fixes some themes (like PrimePress) but break the Google Map scale. If you need to implement this fix for your theme read our Theme Incompatibility Fixes.
  • Fixed bug where map didn’t show if mapTypeControl set to nothing.

    hi, this is very cool, thank you for the plugin, but i need to know if i can show an image preloader when map is been loading, like a gif animated.

  3. Fran says:

  4. Fred says:

    The plugin doesn’t appear to work unless you have your wordpress installation in the root of your site. If your site URL is something like, the domain comparison in the check_domain() function fails.

    I made the following change in check_domain() to get it to work:

    $blog = get_bloginfo('siteurl');


    $blog = preg_replace("/(http:\/\/[^\/]*).*/", "$1", get_bloginfo('siteurl'));

    All I want to be able to do is upload a map in my blog and I have spent 4 hours so far and it wont work PLEASE someone help.

    I have uploaded the plugin to the plugin directory and activated it, got an API number and added the number.. this is where it all stops.

    It doesn’t seem to create a sitemap.xml file, can anyone advise on how I can get this to work.?

    Should an icon appear when I start writing my post that I click and then add the url of the map?

    Thanks if you can help….


  16. Hi,
    Same problem as Ajay :
    How to set the zoom level in widget by default? I have setup default zoom level 5, but on full map , its shows ok, but in widget its so close can not see the location clear..

    Can I get advice on this?

  17. james says:


    I am using the plugin with widget and it works great.

    The problem is that the default zoom is not working. It seems to be zoomed all the way in no matter what I set on the options page.

    see here –

    • Ben says:

      The widget is configured so that if it is showing more than one marker, it sets the zoom to fit in all markers. You are correct – I need to fix it so that if there is only one marker it uses the default zoom.
