CM Map Locations (CMML) - Getting Started - Adding/Editing Locations - From Map
Adding Locations From a Map
Users can find the Add location link on the CM Map Locations Menu widget which you can add to your sidebar (it will be visible only on the locations pages):
It is also on the User Dashboard page:
For Administrators only, the Add location is available also in the wp-admin plugin's page, on the Locations page:
Name and Description
You can then enter the location name and description.
You will also be asked to choose an icon for the location from a catalog. If you specify a category, the icon will default to the icon named for the category. If you specify a category and also choose a specific icon for the location, the icon displayed will be the one you specify. You can also upload your own icon from a computer.
When adding an image/video, you can select a media file from your computer.
To mark a location on the map, click on the part of the map you want to mark. Once you add a location, you cannot add another location to this map. To change the location of the marker, you can simply drag it to a different part of the map. To add another location, you will need to repeat the process documented here on a new location.
When adding a location, you can also edit the latitude/longitude, address, and postal code to specify a location. The "Marker Alt" is an alt attribute applied to the icon - if the icon fails to load, it will be displayed instead.
This information will be automatically prompted once picking the location on the map but it is possible to change it later
You can also add information to the fields Postal code, Phone number, Website, Email address and URL.
You can add unlimited custom fields with the Custom Fields add-on. Learn more: Location Manager Custom Fields Add-on.
To edit your own locations, go to My Locations and click on the Edit link:
The Administrator can edit any location by going to the Locations page under the Plugin admin mneu. You will see a directory of all the locations you added. Hover over a location and click edit. Here you will be able to edit the location.
You may delete an existing locations by clicking the Remove Location button at the bottom of the edit page.
