1. Clicking on the map of the world to position the point.

The WP Geo location selector is styled to fit seamlessly into the latest version of the WordPress admin.

If you set a location, a Google map will automatically appear on your post or page (if your settings are set to).

You can add a map you your category pages to which will display the locations of any posts within that category.
Simply enter <?php $wpgeo->categoryMap(); ?> into your category template where you would like the map to appear.

Please note that from version 2.2 you should access any WPGeo methods using the $wpgeo instance, not using a static class such as <?php WPGeo::categoryMap(); ?>.
Being able to access methods in this way will be phased out in future versions so please change your code now if you need to.
