I chose to pay the very affordable $10 fee to have the License Link removed and was able to download the extension immediately.
I did receive the wrong version however, so I emailed kksou and asked for the correct one. I was very pleased when it arrived in less than an hour! I am in the central part of the US and it was around 1:00am at the time.
Further, I was offered additional assistance which wasn't even necessary, but, I was very grateful for the offer.
My usage of the plugin was as follows:
The plugin itself was designed to be used in an article and/or content area of Joomla. I however, wanted to use it in a module. So, I simply added a code macro to the module and placed the plugin code within it and voila! Instant map in a module. What could be easier? And, the whole plugin is around 10k in size. Perfect!
The greatest thing is that there are lots more parameters to test with this plugin and I can use it in the way it was intended also, for installing into articles.
I am very pleased with the plugin as well as the top-notch service I received.
Then, I tried to match up my previous/old GoogleMap plugin with the Articles Anywhere, but this time, the doesn't show at all.
Then I search again until I found this googleMaps plugin and gave it a try! And the result...
googleMaps plugin + Articles Anywhere = Perfect!!!
To the developer -- kksou, thank you very very much!
Thank you developer!

Although without additional feature like others do, but all the features here is enough for me. Thanks for making this plugin !
