  1. Hi
    The mashup map function doesn’t work with WP4.4 🙁
    [googlemaps width=100% height=350 new_design=true]
    Do you will fix it?

  2. Hi,
    the pronamic google map doesn’t work correctly in tabs or accordions!? On page loading and selecting the tab which is placed the map – the map is empty. If i change the browser window size only a little bit. Then the map is showing.

    Thanks & Regards

    other Google Map Plugin has a fix like that:
    Are you trying to display the map in Tabs or Accordions?
    If you are trying to display the map in a tab or an accordion, you’ll need to modify the code to suit this (We have tried to put a universal check in for this but depending on your theme or plugin, this may not work as it should).

    Please open wp-google-maps-pro/js/core.js and search for the following piece of code:

    jQuery(‘body’).on(‘tabsactivate’, function(event, ui) {
    for(var entry in wpgmaps_localize) {
    Directly below that, add the following:

    jQuery(‘body’).on(‘click’, ‘.the_class_name_of_your_tab_or_accordion’, function(event, ui) {
    for(var entry in wpgmaps_localize) {
    Replace the .the_class_name_of_your_tab_or_accordion with the relevant class name of the element.

    • This issue with the Fusion tabs of the Avada theme has been resolved through a support ticket by adding the following Javascript to the page:

      jQuery( document ).ready( function() {
      jQuery( ‘.fusion-tabs .nav-tabs > li’ ).on( ‘click’, function( e ) {
      setTimeout( function() {
      jQuery( ‘.pgm, .pgmm’ ).each( function() {
      google.maps.event.trigger( jQuery( this ).data( ‘google-maps’ ), ‘resize’ );
      }, 500 );


    The documentation is dire. How the hell do I add a map to my website? On the wordpress plugin page I get a bunch of shortcodes but how do I actually tell it what to map??

    We need decent documentation for the clueless here. Otherwise this plugin is useless.

    • Elisa, did you enable Google Maps support for your desired post type? In your WordPress dashboard, see the Google Maps » Settings menu item. Once enabled for a post type, there will be an additional meta box to assign a location to a post. The `[googlemaps]` shortcodes use the location of that post and the `[googlemapsmashup]` allow you to make a ‘mashup’, which adds markers for the locations of a selection of posts to the map. For further theme integration, please also see the examples at

    • The sensor parameter has already been removed from the development version of the plugin, but unfortunately we haven’t released an update yet. In the next plugin update, this warning will be resolved.

      To make the changes yourself in the `/wp-content/plugins/pronamic-google-maps/` directory through FTP, please see for the specific changes.

      Please note that – except for the console warning – there aren’t any differences in the plugin based on this `sensor` parameter. Google first required the parameter, now they don’t. They chose to inform users of this change through a console warning, but it’s not really an “error” if the parameter is still send.

  4. Hi. Any idea how to use the [google-maps] shortcode in a builder, like Beaver Builder? The map is displayed at the top of the site (right after entry-content tag) no matter where in the builder i place the shortcode.


    • Reüel van der Steege

      We haven’t tested specifically with Beaver Builder, but it should work just like any other shortcode. You could try passing the echo=”false” argument explicitly in the shortcode.

  5. Recently, the Google Maps display started to show “For development purposes only” as an overlay and a “This page can’t load Google Maps correctly” error message. This issue seems to be happening because of a recent change with embedded Google Maps requiring an API key to work properly.

    I’m not sure if this is the specific issue or if there’s another issue, but is there a way to resolve this, or do we just need to get an API key from Google?

  6. Hi.
    Is there still support for this lovely plugin?
    The Geocoder doesn’t work anymore 🙁
    If i enter a city and click “Geocode” for localisation nothing happend …

    • Geocoding is still working. Did you enter a Google Maps API key in the plugin settings?

  7. Hi, this plugin doesn’t seem to work on my WP website (WP version 5.0.2, theme Nutrella). I have entered a Google Maps API key in the plugin settings. ‘Geocoding’ doesn’t work. What could I be doing wrong?

  8. Is there a way to integrate this plugin in to a gravity form.
    It would be great tool as a customer opens a form and type address its get pointed on the map.
