We are thrilled to announce the release of our new travel blog WordPress plugin, Map My Posts!
This easy-to-use plugin allows travel bloggers to associate their existing categories or tags with countries or any location on a map. This data can then be used to create a Google Map, Google Static Map, or Google Geochart visualization which can be shown using a widget or embedded on any page or post using a shortcode.
For example, this is a Google Map, created with Map My Posts, showing the locations of posts on Around This World:
The map above was created using the shortcode:
Map My Posts offers complete control over map layouts, design, click actions, and more.
The plugin is ideal for anyone with a travel blog. Most bloggers already file their blogs under a tag or category to specify the location. Just edit the existing categories or tags you would like to associate with Map My Posts – the plugin will even try to automatically determine a country based upon the existing name.
You can download the plugin from the official WordPress Plugin Directory.
