Hi Chris,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I did upgrade to Mappress Pro version 2.38.5.

1. I tried setting the address field value as indicated below (with straight quotes):

correctedaddress=”513 W 7th St, Wilmington, DE 19805″ title=”513 W 7th St” iconid=”red-dot” point_lat=”39.744481″ point_lng=”-75.554222″

I also set the value for lat and lng fields.

The result was tooltip text still showed lat/lng rather than the desired title when displaying that individual post. It would be nice to be able to set the title (and other values) when using lat/lng rather than geocoding.  Maybe in 2.38.6?

This only affects the individual post with the POI.  On mashup maps that include this post, the tooltip and POI list show the origin post’s title, not the lat/lng.  So, the mashups look fine.  See http://wilmington.crimeboard.org/index.php/wilmington/4th-district/.

2. I set [mappress zoom=”15″] on the individual post.  That worked well and still resulted in only one map, the automatic map, being generated.

3. I will build a dummy post to ensure that the meta field for errors persists even if all my posts geocode perfectly, or not at all.  It might be more efficient to keep using a dummy post than taking a couple bytes for “OK” on every post.  But I guess worrying about a couple bytes here and there is a bit old school.

Thanks for a great plugin.
