WordPress Google Maps in Posts or Pages

Besides showing Google Maps in the widget sidebars, you can show them directly into your posts and pages. This version of the WordPress Google Maps plugin has options in the WordPress backend under Plugins > Hot Maps Plugin Settings. Those options are similar to the widget version’s options. The difference here is that you enter location and dimensions directly on page/post, using this simple shortcode:

It’s obvious. This shortcode will show you a Google Map of the Eiffel Tower’s area in Paris (France), in a frame of 300px width and 200px height.
