Features of Travelers’ Map

  • Geolocalize your posts, pages or custom post types on a map and choose the marker image. A search module is available to quickly locate the desired location.

  • Insert a dynamic map that displays your articles using a simple shortcode. Choose the dimensions of your map.
  • Filter the posts you want to display on the map by their type, categories and tags.
  • Markers clustering is automatic when marker density is too high, to prevent them from overlapping.
  • Customize the appearance of your maps with OpenStreetMap tile providers. By default, the plugin uses CARTO’s free and open „Voyager” map tiles.

The geolocation data of your posts are saved as meta-data and are not deleted if Travelers’ Map is disabled or deleted. However, if you want to uninstall Travelers’ Map permanently, an option is available to clean your database of any data added by the plugin.

Întrebări frecvente

Is this open source and free of charge?

Yes, it is. This plugin uses Leaflet to display the interactive maps. OpenStreetMap open data is used. By default, this plugin uses CARTO’s Voyager tiles, which require attribution but are free.

However, you may have to pay if you were to choose a premium Tile Provider.

How can I find free tile providers to customize my map?

You should visit the awesome Leaflet-providers demo to find a tile provider. Some of them require to register and request an API key.

Can I use Google Maps

No, I decided to create Travelers’ Map after Google Maps’ pricing plans were updated. Furthermore, loading tiles from Google Maps by simply specifying the tiles URL to Leaflet is against the Google Maps terms of service.
If you really want to use Google Maps (but really, why?), you can use the plugin Novo-Map that I used to use on my personal blog.

Can I add more markers images?

Yes, you can add your own custom markers in „Travelers’ Map” > „Customize markers” in your WordPress admin area.

Is this plugin only available in English?

Since version 1.0.0, this plugin has English and French version. You can contribute and [translate the plugin into your language] (https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/travelers-map/)! Thank you.

My markers’ thumbnails are heavy and long to load, what can I do ?

Travelers’ map is creating a small thumbnail size for your popups, however, WordPress is not regenerating thumbnails for the images you uploaded before activating the plugin. To do that, you can install a plugin called „Regenerate Thumbnails” by Alex Mills.

Can I add two maps on the same page?

Yes you can since version 1.5.0, you can add multiple shortcodes on the same page.

Can I change the marker popup style?

Yes you can, since version 0.9.0. You can also disable the plugin’s CSS to customize.

Many, many thanks! I ran in deep trouble with one of "industry leaders" of the mapping plugins (paid service) - it stopped working, leaving just tags on the page instead of maps. Travelers' Map has been a happy find indeed! It is much faster, much simpler to use (I admire the ingenious solution - thinking outside the box!) and almost sufficient for Wondermondo's specific needs. Thus far I have included more than 1300 markers in 400+ categories. I hope that the plugin will manage all 10 000+ planned markers! Excellent additions would be: a) "Fullscreen" button; b) tooltip; c) some more possibilities to work with the design of popup, d) layers (including a possibility to set several kinds of maps). Then come: possibility to set the opacity of each marker, a possibility to set the initial zoom for each map etc. etc. But already now this is really excellent map plugin.

There a so many google maps plugins with tons of features, but very often with too many options, heavy load times and so on. But I haven`t found a plugin suitable for my specific case and I was about to start something with custom fields, before I stumbled upon Travelers' Map by coincidence. What can I say. I am stunned. It really has every feature I need, it is lightweight and easy to use. And another advantage is "Open Street Map" :). Just thank you for this awsome plugin!!!

This is a real gem. Finding a responsive map plugin when you have thousands of blog post and markers is hard. I had given up until I found Camille's Travelers' Map. The map loads instantly, undaunted by the weight of markers on top of it. It's super efficient with all the components that allow you to plot and blog with quick support turnaround. Give it a try. It runs straight away with a super simple to use backend.

I can't believe I've found this excellent plug-in! I've been searching for a long time to find a map plugin that allowed me to associate blog posts to the map. The install instructions are clear and it's pretty easy to implement. Had my customised map up and running in no time. Thanks for your work on this!

Great plugin. By far the best one. One feature that would be nice would be if we could set the maximum zoom on the map. So people can only zoom in so far and out so far.

Hi! I'm looking for map plugin, that allows me to display all Custom Post Type marks. For example I have a list of clinics with addresses that I want to display on the map. As I see Your plugin allows to use only native WP post with native categories and tags.
