      I currently have one Australia-wide map.
      http://bellydanceoz.com/find-a-teacher-by-suburb/
      It’s too hard to navigate so i want to split it up by capital city, and I’m having trouble because I can’t get the queries to work.

      The categories I have are Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne etc. I’ve tried using the shortcodes from the documentation but they don’t. I notice that when I try testing the queries as suggested, I can’t get them to work either, so I assume that’s the problem. Any ideas?

        It would help if you posted the query or queries that don’t work for you so I can see if there’s a formatting error.

          The test query I used was:

          http://bellydanceoz.com/?category_nsw

          I tried using this for the mashup:

          [mashup query="posts_per_page=-1&category_name=nsw"]

          I also tried this:
          [mashup query="posts_per_page=-1&category=7"]

            Hi,

            The first example should be using the category slug, so just double check you have a slug “nsw”.

            In the second, “category” isn’t valid, you need to use “cat”:
            [mashup query="posts_per_Page=-1&cat=7"]

            See here for some examples:
            http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query

            You can also put a little code in your theme to see what WordPress would output for a query – without using a map:

            <?php
              $query = new WP_Query( 'cat=7' );
              print_r($query->posts);
            ?>
