    Hi,

    i would like to create a big single map that show every places that i set up in all my posts (items cos i have a reviews template). I think this is a Mashup Map. But why if i insert code [mashup] in a page i see only a world map without any places?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    [mashup] means display all the locations on the query page.

    Try [mashup query=”all”] to display all maps from all pages.

    Great!!

    i will read the documentation in order to modify map dimension and hide the list of locations under the map.

    Thanks!!

    I have just another question: whythe directions do not work well in my site?

    example: http://www.younewyork.it/attrazioni/flatiron-building/

    Please, try it entering an address in New York as “Times Square, New York”

    Many Thanks

    Hi,

    I think the directions are having trouble with the address in Italian.  If you enter the POI as “175 5th Street, New York” it should work.

    Even if I go to “maps.google.it” and enter “175 Quinta Strada, New York, 10010, Stati Uniti d’America” and click “get directions” it doesn’t work…

    You could also try changing the MapPress language settings: choose “it” for the language and “maps.google.it” for the server.

    Hi,

    I tried some more tests. I’m not sure if this is a Google bug or something I can fix in the plugin. The behavior is really strange:

    If I geocode “flatiron building”, maps.google.it returns:
    “175 Quinta Strada, New York, 10010, Stati Uniti d’America”

    But maps.google.it won’t accept that as a valid address. If I remove the last part, it works: “175 Quinta Strada, New York, 10010, Stati Uniti”

    If I try the same thing in French it returns:
    “175 Cinquième Avenue, New York, État de New York 10010, États-Unis”

    And that address works fine in maps.google.fr.

    I’ll try some more tests and open a bug report with Google. I’ll also try some workarounds in the plugin.

    All I can suggest for now is to switch your language to English (“en” or leave it blank) when entering locations.

    OK

    for the moment I change the language to English…if you have some news, please let me know!

    Thank you very much
