Plugin / SALT Map



Uses google maps to visualise locations on a map. Creates a custom post type for locations and the possibility to have custom fields like address and other information. Then the information is formated for the info window with help of a template. By having the possibility to place the info window outside the map for small screens it functions well for mobile device too.

In addition to displaying the Locations it has support for search among locations with auto completion. The search will be one in all information about the location but all information does not have to be displayed by the template.

The map can be placed on whatever page or post you like with a short code. By giving the short code parameters global values can be override and locations can be filtered for each map. see short code section below for more details.


The info window is formated according to a template that is set in the global settings it is based on mustache.js tempting framework. There is an example template in the distribution of the plugin named template_example.html. It is the id that is refereed in the template.


The plugin adds the salt_map.css which can be used to add style to the info window.


The plugin will work for now without registering a API key with google since mine still is active but for reliability it is recommended to register your own. Here are some instructions on how to get an API key from Google.
