Well, I actually did a bit of coding on my world map wordpress plugin and you can see it sort of in action here.
The only ugliness is it requires a onload=”load()” onunload=”GUnload()” in the <body> tag, and I don’t see any (easy) way for the plugin to do that for just the pages that use the “SimpleMap” shortcode in their text. Setting up a filter to replace that part in the header seems really ugly, don’t want to do that…
So that means it requires a wordpress template which is bleh.
It has a wordpress control panel thingie where you enter your google map API key and can clear its database. No way for logged-on users to enter their own geocode yet.
I have real work to do now but hope to finish it up and move it to the real LD site at some point before the next compo!
