Gutenberg Map Block for Google Maps

Description

Are you using Gutenberg and need a map? This is the map block for you! Install, active, add to content. Done! No nonsense, no unneeded settings. Simple and clear in its function – as any Gutenberg block should be.

Gutenberg is now a core feature so please update to WordPress v5, or install the Gutenberg plugin.

Plugin Features

Works as any other Gutenberg block with the following settings:
* address, or coordinates
* zoom
* map height
* API key – once saved in one block it’s used in all others

Need a non-Gutenberg map solution? Check out our free Google Maps Widget plugin.

Installation

Standard stuff. Make sure you have the Gutenberg plugin installed, obviously.

FAQ

Google Maps API key … grrrr … what where how!?

Yes, yes, it’s frustrating. See detailed instructions from a similar plugin on how to get a map key.
