Why did you make this plugin if there are already other map plugins with more features?
I wanted a really simple wrapper plugin for the Google Static Maps API. http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/
Can I see this plugin in action?
Yes! I’ve set up a few samples here: http://simple-maps.wiffin.com/samples/
- Corrected a bug that would throw PHP warnings.
- Wrapper for most obvious Static Maps parameters.
