Google Maps by Reumer Popular Plugin

Plugin for displaying one or more Google Maps within content-items, modules or components of Joomla 1.5.x (native), 2.5.x and 3.x.

A new release 3.2 of the Joomla plugin Google Maps is available that restores the kml proxy feature in a secure way that was removed in the previous version because of security risks. Also it solves some problems for responsive templates.
The new version has the following new features:
* Added language possibilities for GeoXML and gotoaddress form
* Open infowindow in KML by parameter (GeoXML)

Solves the following errors:
* New authorisation for Twitter
* Security risks in kml proxy
* Problem of standalone Joomla application for kml proxy, twitter and css settings
* Problem with clouds
* Standard use Google Maps API version stable instead of development
* Support for language with multiple dialects (Portugese/Chinese)
* Problem with zoom and center in lightbox
* Solves problems with responsive templates

This version will automatically update in 2.5 and 3.x.
If you want to upgrade from version 2.x then:
1. Install the new version 3.1. This is a new plugin, it does not replace the version 2.x plugin!
2. Do not open the plugin configuration! First you need to enable the new system plugin called "System - Google Map" in the list of plugins by clicking the red dot in the status column. This is the only way to copy all your parameters from the old plugin to the new one!
3. After enabling the plugin in the correct way (point 2) you can check if the settings of the old plugin are copied correctly by opening the new plugin configuration settings.
4. After that you can disable the old system plugin called "Google Map"

Language support available for all the parameters: English, French, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
Please send me language files so I can add them to the plugin. Goto my website to contact me.

The range of options on this plug-in are vast enough to suit any need, yet the setup is simple. The documentation is well organized and easy to read.

A powerful plug-in indeed.

Easy to fix, easy to modify.

I had a small problem with the animation, the effect wasn't working with Joomla 2.5, I contacted the developer and he fixed it :)

I've used this plugin for years with the old google maps API no problems whatsoever. Since the new version of the plugin and since the old google mapsAPI has been deprecated I find that getting this plugin and the Google API information together are just far too complicated. I tried and tried and failed miserably to get this plugin to do anything at all, no errors but nothing. I do NOT blame the developer, I blame Google. Mr. Reumer gets four stars for the way the plugin has worked over the years. Loses one star for the way it interfaces with the new google map API.
I have simply abandoned Google maps.

Thanks for the compliment for my plugin. I am sorry that it is not working on your website and you find it too complicated.
Please ask support at my website so I can have a try to solve the problem and discuss how we can simplify the usage.

This is my first review and I felt compelled to write it because of the patience and support given by Mr. Reuemer.
I contacted support and the response was very fast and concise.
You actually get Mr. Reumer who made the plug-in and he's very patient. I had having a google error that was being caused by another part of the site, but Mr. Reumer took his time and gave me a few pointers and I was able to solve it.
Excellent plugin, does exactly what it says on the box!

This is a really great plugin and easy to use. After the last update all works fine. For the first I got a problem to display the map in a lightbox. But now it's yet possible to show a direction in a lightbox. Wow! Really good job!!!
So much thanks Mike.
With the best regards from north of germany, the windoofer0815.

This is a great plugin. I couldn't get it to work in full {mos custom} mode; (1) couldnt find the pipe symbol and (2) seemed to have a complex syntax! Managed to change the default settings and it works just great! Still given it 5/5!

Installed like a breeze, and had it up & running within 5 minutes. Even for a relative "newbie" such as myself, this was a snap. Highly recommend it. Please, do read the documentation, too, as it has some excellent tips about how to configure your {mosmap} tag in order to get your map to display correctly. And by the way, this is the most thorough documentation I have come across in ages! Well done, developer! Thanks!!!

Did the trick in about 3 minutes - couldn't find any reason to try another map plugin after this one. A definite "you should try this one" from me!

Having worked with Google Maps for earlier versions of Joomla, I was skeptical of my ability to integrate Googlemaps Plugin into my web site. My first surprise was clarity of the installation instructions. Plus the fact that there were no gaps and leaps from one step to the next. Nonetheless, I ran into difficulties because I wanted to tailor the maps to my web site. So I emailed support and my second surprise was how quickly I received a constructive reply (for some other extensions, I'm still waiting for a reply after a week or more!). From then on there followed a series of exchanges and I often wondered to myself whether Support would be getting tired of some of my very basic questions, which must have been answered already 1,000 times. But there was never such a suggestion from Support and I had all the answers I needed, PLUS some suggestions about how to improve the Googlemaps presentations. All in all, this is a fantastic package offered by a dedicated Support Team that is ready to back its product to the limit. Thank you!

The documentation was great and helpful.
Thanks for the awesome plugin

I installed this plugin on my website but wasn't sure if it fitted my exact needs. I contacted Mike who not only advised me that I couldn't get the results I wanted with his product but also gave me some other options of extensions that would work.

I will DEFINITELY be utilizing this plug in on my other websites as it was completely seamless to integrate, worked perfectly and had all the functionality stated.

Support was amazing and Mike is a pleasure to deal with. If you want a Google Map Plug-in then this is the one!
