Geo Mashup WordPress Plugin Release 0.4

The move to Google Maps API version 2 is the motivator for this release, since Google will eventually turn off version 1. The API has also removed the XSLT functionality I was using to render the post in the infowindow.  I suspected this functionality was causing some of the loading problems people have experienced too, so I’ve removed it in favor of a simple, static info window format.  I managed to add a few new features as well.  Get it at the download page.
Changes:

  • Updated for Google Maps API v2.
  • New feature to display a full post along with the map.
  • New option for info window height.
  • New option for a map overview control.
  • Removed XSLT calls.
  • Handle default-style permalinks in the post_link tag. Works on my test site, so I’m putting it in despite one user having some trouble with it (but no worse than without it).

  1. Is it just mine or does the plugin always center on the last geo_code entered into wordpress?

    If I go to an old post and click on the GeoMashup link it is always displaying the coordinates from the most recent post with a geo_code rather than the post I am viewing??

  2. Long time user, first time poster. Great job, but I’m also getting the “Loading” issue after upgrading to 0.4.

    Let me know what I can do to help figure it out.

    I’m using WordPress 2.0.2.

  3. All seems to be working – thanks for getting the update out so quickly 🙂

    Remeber folks, the zoom numbers are reversed in v2 – just confused me for a while after forgetting that 🙂
