WordPress Geo Mashup Release 1.1 Beta 3

Some significant overhauls have been made since the last beta release, which will make this upgrade a little more involved than usual. For details on this and documentation of new features, see the Beta Documentation. If that looks good, go for the download. Please report any issues you have soon – it’s time to get the current beta feature set into a stable release.

This release was supported by www.hidden-teesside.co.uk, publicenergy.co.uk, Vernal Creative, and A blog of my travels by Christopher Weddell. Thanks also to Joost Rooijmans and other users who have been helping out behind the scenes.

The change log:

  • Improved automatic infowindow opening for clicked post.
  • Added geotag icon option to map links.
  • Added terrain map type.
  • Added admin edit menu for saved locations.
  • Added support for KML attachments.
  • Changed map div to iframe.

  1. I’ve installed Geo-Mashup v1.1beta3 on WP 2.6, and it works fine. The iFrame feature is great.
    My question: Once I add articles and a lot of markers on the Global Map, will there be be problems with the performance of the Global Map?
    I have found umapper for WordPress at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/umapper/ – would it be possible to run the Global Geo-Mashup Map inside Flash with umapper ??
