Hey Mary,

Sorry, I don’t quite understand the specifics. Are you trying to get the map to display in your template?

If that’s what you’re trying to do, the best way to do this involves 2 steps. First, add helper code for the map, to output the scripts necessary to embed the map, as shown in this gist:

Next, supposing you had a field set called details, and a field named location, add the following code into your theme:

That will output a div with the class “mp-map” and a script which will embed the map at the selected location. This div is classed with “mp-map” which can be styled with CSS to allow you to tweak the width and height etc.

Does that help? Let me know if I’ve misunderstood the question.

Sorry about the gap in the documentation for this. The map class is now listed in the class reference, but there is still not enough info on how to embed. I’ll get onto that.

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
