Add the power of “where” (and ArcGIS Online) to WordPress

Blog Post created by gletham_geojobe on Apr 25, 2018

Something new from our awesome dev team here at GEO Jobe – enter the latest release of Web Maps for WordPress (Free or Pro)  - Web Maps is designed to bridge the gap between authoritative maps registered with ArcGIS Online and WordPress - the most widely used CMS on the market.


We’re pleased to announce an update of the popular Web Maps for WordPress plug-in to  V. 1.3.2, giving the blogging World even more access to maps, web maps and mapping functionality, without leaving the WordPress environment. Using Web Maps for WordPress, quickly and easily search and add interactive maps to your pages and posts using the “Add a Map” button. Designed similar to the familiar “Add Media” button, users now have one-click access to insert a customizable location map inside a blog post. Search millions of publicly shared maps, accessible via ArcGIS Online, and embed them in your blog using Web Maps for WordPress.

Web Maps for WordPress connects with your ArcGIS content

The Web Maps for WordPress plugin integrates the power of “where” into your pages and posts with interactive maps exposing authoritative content. Web Maps for WordPress is designed to bridge the gap between authoritative and community created maps registered with ArcGIS Online and WordPress (the most widely used CMS on the market). Using the plug-in, search public maps available from ArcGIS Online. All public web maps registered with ArcGIS Online that have a name or contain tags matching your keywords will be returned.

Web Maps for Wordpress is absolutely free, however, if you want even more ArcGIS Online integration with your Wordpress you can check out the Pro version. FYI, I've been a WordPress user for over 12 years and I can assure you that this is easiest and best way to integrate awesome maps into your blog! 

Check it out and please, tell me about your experience or share a link to your blog once you integrate it.

Get it for free from the Wordpress plug-in repository
