How is the maps button created?
The address is built with a Google Maps URL query. Your entered location (address or GPS coord) values are constructed into a link like so:
https://maps.google.com/?q=( street, city, province/state, country, postal/zip or latitude,longitude)
If you’re having troubles with your address, please be sure your business listing is correct on google.com/maps first, or use the GPS Coordinates option in the plugin.
If your google.com/maps/ listing is incorrect, don’t hesitate talking to Google about it, in our experience, they’re eager to resolve map issues.
What Format For GPS Coordinates?
Please use the decimal degrees format (
dd.ddddd) for GPS coordinates. Do not enter the degree symbol or N/E/S/W direction mention or commas. For example, Kamloops BC Canada would be:

See z-index below.
Advanced Options: z-index

If your theme has something hidden behind the buttons, or the buttons are above something like Lightbox, try altering this number higher or lower.
Advanced Options: Append to body
This plugin puts it’s HTML at the bottom of a page using WordPress’s
wp_footer hook. As specified by WordPress:
wp_footeraction. Put this template tag immediately before
</body>tag in a theme template
Some theme authors, for whatever their reason, ignore this, wrapping
wp_footer() in a few elements, causing problems for plugins like this that expect it in a certain place.
Advanced Options: Number Sanitizing
Select this option to prevent the plugin from re-formatting your phone number. By default if you enter a value like
1 (555) 555 - 5555
For maximum browser compatibility, the plugin will sanitize the phone number to
This sometimes effects Google Adwords phone numbers that expect a certain phone number format.
