Plugins

Aldryn Locations offers five different plugins to use. First one is the Map which works with the Google Maps JavaScript API. The other four, Place, Directions, Search and View, are based on [Google’s embed maps](https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/embed/guide).

  • Place Place mode displays a map pin at a particular place or address, such as a landmark, business, geographic feature, or town.
  • Directions Directions mode displays the path between two or more specified points on the map, as well as the distance and travel time.
  • Search Search mode displays results for a search across the visible map region. It’s recommended that a location for the search be defined, either by including a location in the search term (record stores in Seattle) or by including a center and zoom parameter to bound the search.
  • View View mode returns a map with no markers or directions baed on the search term.
