Leaflet Maps Marker (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing Maps)

The most comprehensive & user-friendly mapping solution for WordPress

We are working hard on delivering the best mapping solution available – helping you to share your favorite spots and tracks.

Display locations and directions on your WordPress site. Organize customized icons in tidy layers on a variety of maps and even in augmented reality browsers. Leaflet Maps Marker is your individual Geo-CMS that features highest security standards and a moral code.

With Leaflet Maps Marker, you can

  • pin your favorites places with markers,
  • search for locations by using keyless geocoding providers like MapZen Search, Algolia Places or Photon@MapsMarker (optional: use the geocoding providers MapQuest Geocoding or Google Places with mandatory API key registration),
  • show directions for your locations,
  • choose from over 1000 free, customizable icons from Maps Icons Collection,
  • add popup description text or images for each marker,
  • organize your markers in layers,
  • choose an individual basemap, size and zoom level for each marker and layer map
  • display your maps by just adding a shortcode - e.g. [mapsmarker marker="1"] - to posts, pages, widgets and templates
  • on the basemap of your choice: Open Street Map, Google Maps (road, satellite, hybrid, terrain), Bing (aerial, aerials + labels, road), Mapbox (road, satellite) and any custom WMTS-map
  • and even in augmented-reality browsers like Wikitude!

This plugin is built by a team with a vision. We follow a moral code and value the plugin’s security, your privacy and the documentation of our work. Read our mission statement here.

We feature full RTL (right-to-left) language support as well as full support for cyrillic, chinese and other characters with UTF-8. Leaflet Maps Marker makes it easy to switch between languages. Thanks to over 100 translators around the world, more languages are added regularly. Please feel free to contribute (and earn a license key in return) at
