Any luck yet with integrating an interactive map showing all locations with linked markers? I asked a few years ago and was hoping this was something you have created.

I have a WP Google Maps Connector addon available to Pro Pack users. The WP Google Maps plugin does have a store locator feature, and with the new Connector, you can choose to display your Connections Entries on the map.
Would you be interested in beta testing this Connector? The only reason it has not been released is that I need a few changes to the WP Google Maps plugin. I’ve requested them but have not heard anything back as of yet:04/08/2021 at 1:32 pm #545506Melanie KivetteParticipant
Absolutely. Send me an email and I will give you the link where I will be using it.

Please open a support ticket, and I can give you the link to the download and instructions for use.
One essential item I forgot to mention, you will need the Pro WP Google Maps plugin to work with the Connector because the Connect requires feature only available in the Pro version.04/08/2021 at 1:43 pm #545508
Known issues you may want to consider:

- If your Entries have more than one address when doing a zip/address search, each address for that single Entry will appear on the map regardless of whether that address is within the search radius when doing a zip/address search. There is nothing that I can do about that. WP Google Maps needs to make a minor change to their query class to be appropriately filtered.
- You will not be able to use the category features in WP Google Maps. To support the Store Locator category feature, Connections must take over the categories. Unfortunately, there is no way in WP Google Maps to take over the categories on a per map basis.
Is this “WP Google Maps Connector addon” now available to pro pack users? It isn’t listed here – https://connections-pro.com/add-on/pro-pack/ and there is no point me purhasing it, unless it is available.

This is not listed on the Pro Pack Bundle page yet due to it still being in beta. I send it to any Pro Pack user who requests it. It is actually only in beta because it requires changes to the WP Google Maps Pro plugin, listed here:
The beta will work without these few changes, but I do not wish to release it because of the way the Google Map Connector integrates with the WP Google Maps Pro plugin; it overrides their categories. Without a change to make it possible to make this override selectively, the categories in the WP Google Maps pro plugin can not be used in other maps not attached to Connections. This is fine as long as you wish not to use that WP Google Maps Pro feature.
I hope this answers your question thoroughly!09/11/2021 at 11:39 am #554534Claire LongworthParticipant
Thanks for the quick response.
We won’t be using WP maps for anything other than use with connections, so I’d really appreciate it, if you could send me the extension to try.
