Release Date: Aug 2, 2018 | Themify – PTB Map View addon makes us possible to show posts on the Google Map. The Map View addon is a WordPress plugin that works together with the Post Type Builder (PTB) and Extra Field addon, allowing you to link map field location inputted on each post and places all of it on a single map.
The PTB Map View addon allows you to display posts on a map by querying the location field from a custom post type. It works hand-in-hand with the Post Type Builder and PTB Extra Fields addon. How it works is that it links the Map field type on the selected custom post type, then displays the posts on a map based on their location. You can insert your own custom image marker, select from our icon library, or use the default marker. When a marker is clicked users will see a pop-up preview of the post, and if they click the preview, it will redirect them to the actual post.
This addon smartly adds/removes markers when you add/remove a post, ensuring that it only queries posts that have a location field. This is perfect for displaying properties for real-estate sites, restaurant locations, and store locations.
