OpenStreetMap plugin to embed a map with markers to articles from different categories in different map layers.


OSM Categories embed an OpenStreetMap map to your page by using the OpenLayer API. For every category in your blog a differnt layer on your map show markers for every article with an geotag. You just have to save the lon and lan parameters in a custom field. It's possible to use different marker images for every category.

In your page just insert the shortcode: [osm-cats]

Open the plugin settings page for basic settings like:

  • map dimensions
  • map center point
  • initial zoom faktor
  • exclude categories
  • article custom field for marker lon and lat parameters
  • marker popup content
  • marker images path

It's still BETA so please send me feedback and your ideas! Thanx a lot.
