Mapster WP Maps


Mapster’s on a mission! With WordPress Maps, we’re trying to make the best map editor and creator available for WordPress. So many of the existing plugins out there are outdated, difficult to use, and, worst of all, hide most features behind a paywall.

With WordPress Maps, we currently integrate MapLibre (the open source Mapbox) and Mapbox.

Learn more about the plugin, get started, and check out the documentation at

You can use this plugin with or without access tokens and API keys, however you need.

A few features across different map types include:

  • Live map editor as you change and edit your map
  • Ability to add circles, markers, text, lines, polygons, and popups to your maps, and style them in many ways
  • Unlimited number of maps, unlimited features and markers
  • Control over map size, display, controls on the map, interactivity, and more
  • Integration of location searches, directions plugins, and more to come

We have a feature request forum open where you can feel free to submit feature requests and we will prioritize and respond to these.

This plugin effectively replaces our previous WP Mapbox GL JS plugin, which was a bit old and difficult to develop. This new plugin is much simpler to use and allows much more efficient development and bug fixing.

We have some FAQs and instructions up at, with more coming in the coming months! Please hit us up with any feature requests or bugs that you run into.

I had to update to this plugin because the previous version (WP Mapbox GL JS Maps, with far more installations) was deprecated. I have to admit the change was for the better. It is very easy to integrate and above all they have a very personal and professional support. If you are having trouble or have thought about some improvements, don't doubt to write in the forum!

This plugin certainly has potential and is unique because you can quickly use the most beautiful styles from MapBox studio. It is therefore possible very easily to use heatmaps, 3D maps and much more from Mapbox studio. However, it is very cumbersome to create markers, shapes and polygons in separate tabs. This could be better. Strange that this plugin is rarely downloaded. If this plugin continues to be actively developed, it could become very good, and I am willing to pay for it myself.

Seems to just be getting started, but looks promising! I've been looking for a good mapbox plugin for a while and this is a great replacement for the old one.

It's not possible to enter longitude and lattitude into the corresponding form fields, the values change wildly back and forth. I also did not find a search for an address. So the only thing left is to position the marker directly on the map. This is too imprecise and too fiddly for me. I do not understand why something so faulty is presented to the public.
