0% Google, 100% open source.
Use the free and open source OpenStreetMaps API to display your Events Manager Location Maps!
This plugin completely replaces the original Google Maps API (paid) with the 100% free OpenStreetMaps API. An OpenCage API Key (also free) is only required to create new or edit locations. Existing locations should work right out-of-the-box.
It is also extremely light-weight which saves precious page loading time.
Once installed and activated, this plugin will automatically disable the Google Maps integration in EM for you and replace it with OpenStreetMaps. You do not have to change anything in your code as it simply replaces #_LOCATIONMAP and [locations_map]*.
Apart from completely replacing the Google Maps API, this plugin supports the different locales (blog languages) better. You only have to fill out the street address and city and the OpenCage GeoCoder will automatically fill out the other fields in your own language.
*) Additional arguments in the [locations_map] shortcode are not (yet) supported. Currently working on that, but help and suggestions are welcome.
- US English (default)
- Dutch (always included in the download)
The plugin is ready to be translated, all texts are defined in the POT file. Any contributions to localise this plugin are very welcome!
I am open to your suggestions and feedback!
