Map Field Overview

map field overview

This field allows the user to input coordinates by pinning the needed location on the map. The location can be stored in three different ways: as a string with location Lat and Lng separated by coma, as an array, and as a plain address. The value of the Map Field can be saved conveniently into the Map meta field of the JetEngine plugin.


The Map Field type requires both the JetEngine (3.0.3) plugin and its Map Listing feature to be activated.
