Advanced custom fields
The following documentation shows how to aggregate and display Advanced Custom Fields locations on a WP Go Maps map.
Integrated markers are fully compatible with our Store Locator and Marker Listing features.
The Following Plugins need to be installed and active
- WP Go Maps
- WP Go Maps Pro Addon
- Advanced Custom Fields
Please firstly navigate to ACF’s Custom Fields page and click Add New.
In this example, we create a field group for Pages
Add a title for the new Field Group, we'll call this one "Integrated Location Field Group"
Select the "+ Add Field" Button
Enter Field Label as Location (field Name will automatically populate to the same)
Select Field Type as Google Map
Set Location the custom field will be displayed, in this case we'll use Post Type is equal to Page
Remember to save your new Custom Field, by selecting the Publish Option
Navigate to the Pages menu on your WordPress dashboard and click Add New.
From the page editor, you can specify your Custom Field location.
Once you have added your location, please remember to save the page (Selecting the Publish Button)
In WP Go Maps, create a new Map
This is the Map where all configured Custom field locations will be displayed
- Navigate to WP Go Maps -> Maps -> and select Add New
- Navigate WP Go Maps -> Maps (in edit mode of you new map) -> Settings -> General , enter Map Name in this case we'll call it "ACF Display map"
- Save Map
Enable Advanced Custom Fields at the following location.
WP Go MAPS -> Maps (edit the ACF Display Map) -> Advanced Settings -> Integration
Select The Page Post Type
Then click Save Map to save your settings.
Add the "ACF Display map" to a new page in WordPress
Your Advanced Custom Fields locations will now be visible on the front end on your WP Go Maps map.
The integrated marker has a link back to the page this ACF location was created on, and will pull it’s title, from the page title, the page featured image as the marker image and the page content as the marker description.
The above tutorial shows how to display your markers dynamically, pulling the data in real time from an integration source.
If you want to import your data to work on it within our plugin, as opposed to dynamically integrating the markers, please navigate to:
WP Go MAPS -> Tools -> Import -> Advanced Custom Fields
Please note at present there is no way to export your markers back to the source from which they originated.
