Demonstrating the MapPress Plug-in

Adding a Google map to your website isn’t terribly difficult, as long as you’ve read some documentation and understand a little JavaScript.  But when it comes to displaying maps in a blog or CMS, adding custom JavaScript via a WYSIWYG interface can be tricky.  This site is powered by the WordPress CMS, and I’m not totally sure where to begin adding Google or OpenLayers code, without adding unnecessary code to every post.

Fortunately, there are plug-ins available for everything these days.  MapPress is a plug-in for WordPress that can add a Google map to a blog post.  With a single click, it is possible to add a great-looking map and some custom locations.  Further customization allows even greater control over the map, and there’s even a Pro version available.
