Some thoughts and issues
After trying the plugin for some hours, here are some thoughts/issues:
(1) The initial location of the marker on the map is set to some place on the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, the marker appears with a blue background and you have to zoom out to know where you are. It would be nice if the initial location as well as the initial zoom level were configurable, or at least if they were set to reasonable values (i.e. the middle of land with Countries zooming level).
(2) Currently, to move the marker you have to drag it to the place you want to mark, so if that place was in the far other side of the map and the zooming level was close-up, you have to do one of the following:
a) Zooming out until the both sides appear at the same time (the side that the marker initially start at and the side you want to mark), moving the marker and then zooming in again.
b) dragging the marker to the edge of map screen in the direction of the side you want to move to, and navigate in the map until the marker comes to the other edge and so on. (i.e. Suppose you want to move the marker from a place in Canada to another in Mexico. You will drag the marker to the lower edge of the shown map screen, and then you will navigate in the direction of the south until the marker become on the top of the shown map screen and so on until you reach the destination you want.)
It will be much more efficient if the user was able to move the marker by the mouse clicking. This way you don’t have to drag the marker screen-by-screen. Instead, you directly go to your destination, click on the place you want and voila! the marker is relocated there.
(3) There is a problem with the shortcode [gpress place_id=”all”]. When I use it I see a blank area instead of the map.
Sorry if some ideas weren’t clear enough. My English isn’t that good.
