This plugin requires the Google Map API key that you can find from the Google Maps Platform. Once you successfully generate the API key, then copy it and paste it to the RGM Maps > Settings page.

Google Map API Key

Create the First Google Map

Go to the RGM Maps > Add New menu to create your first Google Map. The following screens will appear after click on the Add New menu under RGM Maps.

Add New Map

The title section is to give it some name to easy remember for the particular map. The Settings section at the right side is used for the Map settings like width, height, zoom etc. Let’s talk about it in detail.

Google Map Settings

This section helps you to control the Map options like width, height, zoom, Map Type etc. The width section by default has 100% to make it responsive over all the devices, you can adjust it as per your need but we recommend you keep it as it is. The height section is also adjustable, you can give any value in pixels to adjust the map height accordingly.

The latitude and longitude are the Maps positions that help you to display the desired location over the map.

You can get these Latitude and Longitudes values by right click on the Map.

The Zoom Level settings helps you to adjust the Map zoom level during map render on the frontend.

The Map Types supported 4 types i.e. Roadmap, Satellite, Hybrid, and Terrain. And the Disable zoom option helps you to disable the zoom option from the frontend.

If you just want to display the Map only ( without markers ), then you just have to play with the Settings option only.

Advanced Settings

The Advanced Settings options help you to attach the Markers and Infowindow over the Map. For the time being, We are supported by Markers and Advanced Markers.

What is the difference between Markers and Advanced Markers?

Makers – If you require to point some location over the map (without infowindow) then you must go through the Markers section. This section has various customizations like custom marker icon, redirection to different links by clicking on the marker, etc. You can add as many markers as you want by click on the “Update” button.

Advanced Markers – Advanced Markers section is similar to the Markers but with more advanced features like Infowindow, Thumbnail to Infowindow etc.

Publish the Map

You can publish or update the map like posts/pages.

Display Google Map to the Frontend

RGM Maps creates a separate shortcode with unique id for every single map. You can use this shortcode to display the map anywhere to the frontend.

  1. Great plugin, very easy to use. Is there any way to add in the mapping controls (pan, zoom etc) to the map or to change the zoom? I tried to change the zoom in the shortcode without any luck. An help on the above would be great.

  2. It is responsive but the Red Google Pointer is missing and also missing is the One Touch for directions.

        1. @andreyryzhenko:disqus I think the problem is something else. The image is exists and its working fine. Can you show me the exact error or hows its displaying without marker?

            It’s so stange, but then i download from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/responsive-google-map.1.1.zip, I see only ‘contact_form_id.png’ into images/ folder.

            Inside settings.php I see
            $Marker = isset( $options[‘om_marker’] ) ? plugin_dir_url(__FILE__) . “images/marker_” . $options[‘om_marker’] . “.png” : “”;

            But if disable line /* */, then img of marker is loading automaticaly from google api:
            var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            map: map,
            draggable: false,
            /* */
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(, )
            });

    1. Alexander Hi Alex, First of all thank you to using my plugin. Right now there is only one custom icon to change in place of marker. And yes your can add the description into the infowindow. There is a option infowindow(with textarea), when you inserting the GMap. Or Simply your can add directly like :

      [om_gmap zoom="9" lat="28.9285745" lng="77.09149350000007" infowindow="Your Description here" wpcf=""]

      Please let me know if it helps you. With my next update i will add a new feature to insert the image and description with new look and feel.

  3. Hi Jogesh,

    yes, did the trick. Do you know whether you will be able to include a goggle business marker in the next version?
