ACF: Google Map Extended

by CodeFish


This plugin creates a new field for Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)
extending the functionality of the built-in Google Map field with several handy features:

  • Saves map center. You can center your maps wherever you want and indicate that you want to save that place as map center. This can be handy, if you want your front-end map to show some specific place in the center of the map (not necessary the location marker).
  • Saves zoom level.
  • Disables (optionally) map zooming with a scrollwheel. Sometimes you can get annoyed with your maps starting to zoom, when you scroll the post in the admin area. This feature comes handy here.
  • Shows location coordinates. It is easy to get any place’s location coordinates (latitude and longitude) with this plugin by setting a marker to the place you need using user friendly map interface.
  • Compatible with the data format of the Google Map field coming with ACF. See F.A.Q. for details.
  • Saves all maps shown at a page in the global array. This is a bonus for programmers. See F.A.Q. for details.

The plugin makes use of the Google Maps API version 3.
The plugin doesn’t use an API key and is therefore operating under the restrictions of the free Google Maps API,
which should be more than enough for most websites.


This ACF field type is compatible with:

  • ACF 4
  • ACF 5 (PRO version)
  • Google Map field coming with ACF 4/5. See F.A.Q.


The plugin is translated to:

  • French
  • German
  • Netherlands
  • Russian
  • Ukrainian

There is a POT file under the lang directory holding all translation strings, so it should be pretty easy to translate to other languages.
