Some people end up going through the code and setting up print_r statements or var_dump statements Some end up working through the code and changing variables or function names until they find where something breaks (or changes) Some use debugging software (or the […]

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a quick tip on working with multiple InfoWindows with the Google Maps API specifically within the context of WordPress. When working with this API, there are a number of considerations to take into account each of which is going to depend on how much of the API you’re […]

Recently, I’ve been working with the Google Maps API in order to plot locations that are stored as custom post type meta data in the WordPress database.   The general functionality is as follows: For each of the locations stored in the database Generate a pin for the location In addition to creating a pin, create […]
