Free version not working. Basic function of being able to add a location tp posts does not work because the 'Save Location' button freezes. Other geolocation plugin instructions to setup API key worked first time. Directions given by Geo my WP simply do not work.

We have a site with many plugins and needing something pretty specific. Support was really good getting into our request and making it happen. Thanks again!
22 Disember 2023
My challenge: Automating pages at reiseliste.de to display galleries, maps, and data depending on the geo-location of the page. This plugin is now one of the critical plugins to achieve that.I appreciate your support!
16 November 2023
Just incredible. Use this plugin, plus a few of the paid add-ons, for a few client sites and they work so well. If there is an issue I've always found the tech support provided by Eyal, superb. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this plugin to anybody that requires a mapping solution on their site.
22 Ogos 2023
The plugin instructions are easy to understand and I had no problem with installing and activating the plugin. Everything works perfectly as expected. But what really stands out is the customer service. I had a very individual problem with my theme and asked the customer service for an idea to solve the issue. The developers got in touch immediately and offered me to take a look at the problem on my website (with access data that I provided). After a short time, the developers were able to solve the problem and my theme was now working properly.Although it was clear that my problem was not directly related to their plugin, I was helped without hesitation. If you have experience in development, you know that this is anything but a matter of course. Therefore 5 stars from me!
