Reference Manual


Search for “flexible map” in the Add Plugins page of your site admin to install the plugin automatically. If you prefer to download the plugin and install it manually:

  1. Unzip and upload the plugin to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Get an API Key from Google and add it to Settings > Flexible Map
  4. Add the shortcode to your pages / posts to embed maps

See the examples pages to quickly get your maps working. Refer to the attributes references for how to fine tune your maps.

But… where are the rest of the settings?

There are none! You just need to add some attributes to your shortcode telling the map what to do.

Of course, in WordPress there is a plugin for everything :) so if you really want more settings, please install the Flexible Map Options plugin. That plugin lets you set some defaults so that if you use the same attributes over and over, you can put them all in one place. Thanks, Pascal!
