estatik_map_view_released

Time flies! We worked hard and finally finished version 2.0 which takes a major step forward in the plugin efficiency! Let’s take a closer look at what this update gives you:

 1. Map view

This is undoubtedly a major new feature of this release. Lots of you were hoping to get this and now this addition is available! So how can you use it?

Option 1 – shortcode

 

You can insert a shortcode in a page and show all listings or filtered by the following parameters. Check out shortcodes below:

* [es_property_map] – enter this to show absolutely all listings on the map
*
[es_property_map type=”for-rent”] – use this to show listings for rent only
*
[es_property_map type=”for-sale”] – use this to show listings for sale only (you can put any other category name instead of “for-sale”)
*
[es_property_map prop_id=”12, 24, 26″] – enter IDs you want to show on the map

 

We have also improved this by extra settings which can be found in the plugin Settings >> Map view. Select icons color, type, map height, number of properties and zoom level.

Option 2 – widget

 

You can consider it as a pleasant bonus which makes it easy to insert the map in one of your theme sidebars! Using it is as simply as that! Just go to widgets area, find Estatik Map View and drag it to sidebar.
