WordPress Travel Map Plugin (CMMRM) - Adding Route Locations Markers


Adding Route Locations

Back to User Guide

Location Markers are points of interest of a route.

Markers appear as a label on the route and each has its own icon, description, images, and a name. If the location is inside a city, you can also edit the address.

Clicking on another point will add another marker.


What Is Shown When Clicking a Marker

Each location marker has a series of fields for entering information.

You can choose if clicking the marker will trigger an info window and, if so, what the content should be. For example:

You control what will appear by adding placeholders. This allows the add-on to show different information depending on the marker.

Below is a table with all fields and their respective placeholders.

TIP

Some ways you can manipulate placeholders:

  • Clickable link - set [linkurl] as the link of [linktext]. You can do this with the visual editor or with the HTML editor.
    • HTML - Copy the snippet <a href="[linkurl]">[linktext]</a>
    • Editor - Note that this method will automatically add http, making the link <a href="<em>http://</em>[linkurl]">[linktext]</a> . If the links don't work, it's likely that this http:// is invalidating them, so please try removing it

  • Image
    • Use the [image] placeholder to simply show the image
    • Customize the image using [imgsrc] and HTML. Example snippet: <a href="[linkurl]" <img src="[imagesrc]" style="float: left; padding-right: 10px;"></a>
