    Simple Google Maps Short Code

    Add to List

    Simple to use, yet powerful, Google Maps plugin! Reviews say this is “Best Google Map Shortcode plugin”.

    Put a Google map on your WordPress posts and pages simply and easily with a shortcode. Straight forward and easy to use! Ideal for contact page maps, maps showing delivery areas and many other uses!

    This plugin will enable a simple shortcode that you can use for embedding Google Maps in any WordPress post or page. The shortcode uses the WordPress HTTPS API and the Transients API for delivering cached Google maps with little to no impact on your site’s performance.

    Maps are displayed with the [pw_map] shortcode:

    [pw_map address="New York City" key="YOUR API KEY"]

    Google now requires that new accounts use an API key. You can register a free API key here.

    You can have multiple map pins, simply add multiple addresses separated by semi-colon ;

    [pw_map address="Statue of Liberty National Monument NYC;Empire State Building, New York, NY, USA" key="YOUR API KEY"]
