* These fields integrate directly with the Member Directory and Profiles Add On. The Membership Maps Add On will automatically use the values of these fields when setting up your Membership Directory.

Member Directory and Profile Pages Add On Integration

Your map will automatically display on the Member Directory and Profile pages, inheriting the shortcode attributes of that Add On for rendering the map. You can add additional shortcode attributes from the Membership Maps directly to the shortcodes used by the directory or profile page. See the example below, which adds the infowindow_width attribute to the Directory shortcode:

[pmpro_member_directory levels="1,2,3" infowindow_width="350"]

If you do not want to display a map automatically on these pages, you must unhook the actions in the Membership Maps Add On using a recipe like the one below:

Debugging for Geocoding

There are two ways to enable debugging for geocoding:

Option 1: Enable WP_DEBUG. This will email the admin_email with the error code if there are any.

Option 2: Set PMPROMM_DEBUG to true in your wp-config.php file, or assign an email address to PMPROMM_DEBUG to email the errors to the desired email address.
