In this article, you will discover the top WordPress map plugin features you can get from MapifyPro.

Unlimited Maps: Google or Image Mode

Add as many maps as needed throughout your site, whether on pages, blog posts, or even widgets. Place the map with a simple shortcode that is automatically generated.

100% Responsive and Mobile/Tablet Support

With this WordPress map plugin, you can pinch, zoom, and swipe through locations and galleries in app-like fashion through our mobile-supported maps and location galleries. Every element of MapifyPro is also 100% responsive-site ready.

WPML Support

Translate individual locations (good if you have locations in different countries) or entire maps with via full WPML translation support.

Search by Zip, City, Country, or GPS Coordinates

MapifyPro has one of the most robust search engines available, allowing visitors to search for locations on the road or off, specifying the distance they’d like to search within, and more.

Customized Filters that You Create and Assign

Organize your map locations even further by creating map filters, and assigning them to each location as needed. These are then organized in a dropdown, and/or a list beneath the map. When a visitor clicks on a filter, only the locations you’ve tagged with the filter will appear on the map while hiding the rest.

Pop-up Video/Photo Galleries

Each location can include a sleek pop-up gallery with a video and photo gallery (Vimeo and YouTube fully supported). These pop-ups will dynamically adjust to the content you add, and will automatically generate an interactive gallery.

Unlimited Unique Map Marker Icons for Every Location

Add and mix as many unique map markers as needed for each map. Assign a default map marker for the overall map (great for your most common location type), and also add specific marker graphics to any location as needed.

Add Locations to Multiple Maps In a Click

This WordPress map plugin allows you to add locations to any or all of your maps in a single go. While creating a location, you choose each map you’d like it to appear on in a single action, cutting workload down and applying the location instantly to every selected map.

Detailed Location Information

Address, phone numbers, and external links (such as Yelp Reviews) can be added to each location as needed, as well as a button to provide directions.

Custom Image Map Mode

Our advanced custom image mode renders any image and emulates an actual Google map. Better yet, it supports nearly all of MapifyPro’s features (everything besides GPS-related features since images don’t support GPS data).

Snazzy Maps

Customize Google map styles with over 2 dozen unique looks are included and more can be easily added as needed. Simply select your style from a dropdown and instantly add a unique look to your map.

Share Any Location

Share any location on all popular social media sites and drive traffic to your site, which is perfect for creating a viral following. Send visitors to your maps and grow your following!

Directly Link to Any Map Location

Send or share a link with friends and send them directly to any location on the map. It’s also the perfect way to link to a map from your blog to highlight specific locations.

Batch Upload Images to Each Location

Add all of your photos to a location in a single upload. MapifyPro will then automatically generate thumbnails and add an interactive gallery to the location in the form of a sleek modal overlay.

HTML/CSS Tooltips

Add images, links, directions, and other items to our html-based tooltips. You can also set the color, transparency, and animation effect of the tooltip from the settings.

Map Clusters

Have a lot of locations in a single location? This feature groups locations into clusters, eliminating the clutter while making it fine to drill down to specific locations.

Add Blog Articles to Your Maps

MapifyPro integrates with your actual blog, allowing you to quickly add your blog posts to any of your maps. The blog post will then appear on-location on the map in a customized, article-based pop-up. Perfect for travel bloggers!

Interactive Location Directory

Add an interactive list of locations beneath your map to provide quick previews of each location, group locations by topic, and more. It’s perfect for a store locator and allows visitors a unique way to interact with the map.

Bulk Upload Map Locations

Our enhanced bulk uploader allows you to maintain a separate .csv of your locations for any map, and when you update the .csv and re-upload, only the locations changed will be affected by the updated file.

Color and Style Options for Tooltips and Pop-ups

Customize the color of your tooltips, pop-ups, and accent colors directly from the admin. You’ll have full control over animations, background colors, transparency, and more!

Animated Tooltips and Markers

Add a sleek touch to your map with subtly animated tooltips and markers. You control whether to enable this feature or not via the intuitive settings panel, along with plenty of other customization options.

Search by Location Radius

Our powerful search engine lets you specify a radius in which location results are shown on the map after entering a search inquiry. Search by city, zip code, and even GPS coordinates for off-road locations.

Search Radius

Let visitors specify how far they want to search within a specific location on the front-end maps. This works to create the perfect store locator.

Suggest Nearest Locations

If searching for a location on a map but none are found within the search radius, MapifyPro will suggest the nearest location to your visitor, and can even provide directions.

GPS Support on Supported Devices

Provide to and from directions on GPS-supported devices. If not on a GPS device, MapifyPro will still supply directions to a location via Google Maps.

Each Location is a Post

Each location is familiar to anyone who has created a WordPress blog, and enhances SEO ten-fold, supports 3rd party plugins, supports HTML formatting, and adds an amazing amount of flexibility.

Categorize Map Locations

Like Blog posts, map locations are to be added to any category you’ve added to your actual blog. This means that visitors can view all map locations in the category you put them in within your blog, as well as on the maps!

Duplicate Map Locations And All Settings

Creating new locations has never been easier with our “duplicate location” feature, which lets you duplicate a location and all of its settings with a single click. This keeps all photos, videos, and specific settings intact for new locations.

Link Map Locations to External Sites/Pages

Locations aren’t limited to displaying a pop-up. Markers can be set to link to external sites or other pages in your own site with a simple click.

Specify Default Location Focus

Choose mouse zoom or manual zoom for each map. You can also set the default zoom level of the map while centering on any of your locations.

Specify Map and Location Behaviors

Toggle tooltip behavior (close automatically or manually, hide tooltips completely, etc.), marker behavior, and auto-zoom, which zooms into locations when they are located via filter or search.

Automatically-Generated Shortcodes

Each map gets its own unique shortcode for easy placement of each map anywhere on your site! Shortcodes are placed next to each map in the list view, so they’re simple to organize.


If those WordPress map Plugin features weren’t enough, MapifyPro can be enhanced with our add-ons! For example, add detailed routes to your maps, and even let visitors submit locations!
