Google Maps Not Showing in Post for Non-Members

I am using the Google Maps Plugin and the Membership plugin. The Google maps show up in posts for members, but not for non-members (stranger level).

I can’t figure out how to get the maps to show up in posts for people who are not logged in.

Is there something I need to change in the stranger membership level?

    Hi jbshort,

    I believe that’s solely due to your shortcode settings. Could you check under Membership > Edit Options to see that the Shortcode visibility is set to “Yes”?

    Also, do you by any chance have any Shortcode rules in the membership level you’re using for the “Strangers”?

    I just checked, and the Shortcode visibility is set to “Yes.”

    I don’t have any Shortcode rules in the membership level I’m using for “Strangers.” Should I? The map shortcode I’m inserting in my posts is: [map id=”1″] (The “1” changes for each map.)

    Is there a shortcode for the maps that I should be putting in the Shortcode rules? If so, can you tell me what it is?

    Thanks for all your help!
