  1. Hi,
    I just published a wordpress plugin enabling you to auto-embed google maps just writing an address on each post.

    It can also display a global map with all the posts displayed as markers – pretty cool and easy. And free of course 😉
    I’d love you to consider adding it to the list as it very lightweight and easy to hack (only one file) yet takes care of geocoding & everything pretty straightforwardly!

  2. Good morning,
    I have installed the MapPress plugin and it works really great! They offer a Pro version too but the normal version is already very complete itself.
