I managed to display the map perfectly fine using the map field type. Trying to get a map marker to show so that it makes more sense.

Hi, there’s no super easy way to do this given that it requires you to delve into the Google Maps API.

I’ve created a gist here which I’m hoping will get you started on a method to do this:

This template will display a map and marker at the location specified by your field. Please refer to the code comments for requirements to customise for your setup.

It makes use of the 3rd party gmaps.js library here, which makes Google Maps a lot easier to work with:

Hope this helps!

MasterPress 1.3.6 is now available

Masterpress 1.3.6 is a compatibility release. It resolves an edge case with shared fieldsets not working for MySQL 8 when the fieldset is limited to more than 1 post type or taxonomy or excluding any post types or taxonomies.

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 WordPress.com hosted service.
