WP Geo 3.3

Wednesday, 8th May 2013

Finally using Google Maps API v3

Lots of changes to the core code in this release.

If you’ve simply been using WP Geo as it comes to add locations to post and pages your upgrade to 3.3 should be trouble free – hopefully 🙂 – If not please help by submitting your bug or issue here…

You may need to get a new API Key for Google Maps API v3.

If you have made customisations, used filters or other plugins that work alongside WP Geo you should test your code works with this latest version. No changes have been made to how your data is stored in the database so you should be able to re-install a previous version of WP Geo temporarily while you sort out compatibility if needed.

Fixed bug in WP Geo where maps weren’t showing in admin.

Sorry if this caused any inconvenience.

NOTICE: I have had a couple reports of people not being able to see maps in the admin. This is now fixed in WP Geo which should be available for download shortly.

Couple of minor updates in this release…

  • Updated Google API Key link.
  • Fixed the plugin not loading on the post editor over https.

Looking forward…

I am in the process of re-writing WP Geo to work with Google Maps v3 and provide hooks so that it would be possible to integrate other Map APIs in future.

The next major version 3.3 will likely contain a lot of revised code and if you use other plugins that work with WP Geo or have created or customised your own implementation of WP Geo you may need to update some of your code.

Where possible I’m trying to make it as backwards-compatible as possible so that you can continue to run Google Maps API v2 if you wish. When I have a clearer idea about what might be affected in the next major release I will post updates here and also @wpgeo on Twitter.
