Just installed wpmu google-maps plugin

When entering content into page or post, the globe icon is displayed as it should.


However, when using the Visual Composer for WordPress plugin from wpBakery, in effect, a third-party “editor”, the globe-icon for inserting an existing or new map is not displayed.


Further testing determined that a ‘map’ shortcode, created via standard editor, and then pasted into the editing box of Visual Composer, did indeed work, and resulted in a map being displayed with viewing of post.

Is this a ‘known’ plug-in incompatibility issue?

Thanks in advance for insight.

    Hi @mlangham

    Welcome to the forums!

    A conflict with the Visual Composer plugin was just resolved in our Dashboard plugin (v3.3.1).

    As Visual Composer appears to be gaining in popularity, seems to be included in more and more themes from ThemeForest, this does look like something that would need to be addressed by the author of that plugin too.

    But I’ll alert our developers to another conflict.

    Thanks for reporting this :slight_smile:

    Not really a conflict, or something we can fix. They are not implementing the proper WP hooks to display custom insert icons above their editor. You’ll have to continue using your workaround (generating shortcodes in the WP editor). Note this would be the case with any plugin that uses custom insert icons.

    Thanks Pat and Aaron.

    Before we close the ticket, let me reach out to Mixey at the bakery.


    Initially, on codecanyon, he said something similar about YOUR plugin. :wink:

    This is something that is out of our scope. When your plugin initializes it hooks to the one default “spot” near the default WP editor.

    Yes, basically it’s up to them whether they want to include the default WP hook there. Apparently they don’t consider it as a replacement for the normal content editor so dont call the hook there.

    Either they call the WP hook there, or we add custom code to tie into a hook they have (if they have one).

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
