Shortcode options

Map List Pro has a number of settings that can be overriden or implemented through its shortcode. For full details of options for the Map List Pro shortcode see the shortcode page

Multiple category filtering

Version 3.6.11 added the ability for users to sort by multiple categories when using the map. Setting this up is relatively painless. For full details see the Setting up multicategory filtering page.

Add a search form to another page

Map List Pro maps can automatically populate it’s search from the url of the page. This means that if you add ?locationSearchTerms=yoursearchterm to the url of your page the map will automatically start a search for you.

If you add a text widget to any page you can make a search form that goes to your map page. Just add this to the text widget:

<form action="/url-to-your-page">
<input type="text" name="locationSearchTerms" />
<input type="submit" value="Search Locations" />

Make sure you change the action on the form tag to point to the url of your map page.

  • Create a new folder inside \images\pins.
  • Add your marker images to this folder.
  • You should now be able to pick your new marker on the “Category Icons” page.
