I would like to have the map field type default to the address contained in the post.

I don’t see the mpft map listed on the field types reference in the docs, so I can’t directly access its properties.

Thanks, Mary

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:

https://gist.github.com/traversal/e6756ddc7344460159c5

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

https://gist.github.com/traversal/9aaac546639c85f9d418

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.

Regards

Travis

I was trying to set the location field with an address that was already in the post, but figured out I can do that in the code, and leave the map in the post for those times when the address is not correct one for the map.

Thanks for your help 🙂

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.
