    Hello,
    I would like to change the marker on the Google map for a custom marker, and a custom size. I know that, I can change it and insert/upload a custom marker, but what I want to have is a much larger marker. Right now it’s being forced to be 40×40, but I want it to be 212×149.

    What do I need to do to change the overall size of the marker? 80×80 is simple not big enough for what I want. Plus even though I put the setting to 80×80 it only displays 40×40 (got MacBook 15″ retina).

    Could you please help me solve my issue? Thanks.

    // Morten.

    Hey NGdesign6,

    Please provide a link to the page/site in question so we can look into this further.

    Hello Jordan,

    Here you can see an example of what I mean: Example

    As you can see it’s very tiny (you have to scroll down a bit). I tried changing the CSS of the pin and the image within from 40×40 to the sizes that I want 212×149, but nothing happens, the image stays the same. It seems like it’s locked to the specific size of 40×40. Also I’m running it with a child-theme, so that I am still able to do updates without clearing out code, when an update should be available.

    the easiest way would be to edit the shortcode google_maps.php in shortcodes folder
    on array id imagesize you have to insert one line:

    since line 118:

    array(
    "name" 	=> __("Custom Map Marker Image Size", 'avia_framework' ),
    "desc" 	=> __("How big should the marker image be displayed in height and width. ", 'avia_framework' ),
    "id" 	=> "imagesize",
    "type" 	=> "select",
    "std" 	=> "40",
    "required" 	=> array('marker', 'not', ''),
    "subtype" => array(
    
    	__('20px * 20px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'20',
    	__('30px * 30px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'30',
    	__('40px * 40px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'40',
    	__('50px * 50px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'50',
    	__('60px * 60px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'60',
    	__('70px * 70px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'70',
    	__('80px * 80px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'80',
    	__('200px * 200px',  'avia_framework' ) =>'200',
    
    ),),

    how to use shortcodes on child-theme:
    create a subfolder on your child-theme called shortcodes
    insert this to your functions.php of your child-theme:

    add_filter('avia_load_shortcodes', 'avia_include_shortcode_template', 15, 1);
    function avia_include_shortcode_template($paths){
      $template_url = get_stylesheet_directory();
          array_unshift($paths, $template_url.'/shortcodes/');
      return $paths;
    }

    then the new uploaded shortcode will be active – and not the parent shortcode

    btw: i dont know if all those custom-markers get the class: gmnoprint
    but if you want this image an alternative to the bubble you can get rid of click event by:

    .gmnoprint {
        pointer-events: none;
    }

    Thank you Guenni007. I’ll try it out, when I get home.

    So no matter what the images has to be square?

    i think – no – just try it with other sizes. The only thing is if you want a marker placed it has to be a png – and a somewhat looking pointer (arrow etc)

    #859739

    Hello again Guenni007,
    I tried to do what you mentioned earlier, but it doesn’t seem to work.
    1. I added this to functions.php in the child-theme:

    add_filter('avia_load_shortcodes', 'avia_include_shortcode_template', 15, 1);
    function avia_include_shortcode_template($paths){
      $template_url = get_stylesheet_directory();
          array_unshift($paths, $template_url.'/shortcodes/');
      return $paths;
    }

    2. I created the “shortcodes” folder inside the child theme.

    3. I added the entire “google_maps.php” inside the “shortcodes” folder. And added the code inside the “google_maps.php” at the right place as you said.

    Inside the page in the admin area I can see that 200×200 has been added, but when I choose that, nothing happens on the live google maps for that page. It just keeps the 40×40 dimensions with no change, and even if I go with the inspector all the way into the css and change it to something bigger like 200×200 the image stays at 40×40, nothing changes. The marker/pin just keeps the same size.

    did you empty your caches ! (Browser Cache and if used minify or super cache plugins cache)

    I just cleared my cache. Still the same. :S Does it have anything to do that my screen is a macbook retina?

    #859764

    The link you sent me is the same for me. Only 40×40 I see.

    #859768

    Agh give me a moment. I think it might be cloud cache.

    #859781

    Hey Guenni007,

    I have cleared the cache on the server, the website, and in my browser, but nothing changed. I still just get the 40×40.

    #859803

    and why can i see your testsite working?

    click to enlarge:

    #859817

    aha now i see what the problem is – the image is bigger but it takes the 80×80 thumbnail as source.

    On line 466 of our google_maps.php you can see:

    $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src($shortcode['attr']['marker'], 'thumbnail');
    
    change it to:
    
    $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src($shortcode['attr']['marker'], 'fullsize');

    it will than take the original uploaded image ! But you have to insert it on googlemaps options again.

    Tip if you don’t want a square – gave to the png more transparency on top

    Hello Guenni007,

    Sorry it has taken me some time to get back on this. I have done everything that you have written, but I still don’t see any difference. I still only see the 40×40 image size. Eventhough I have change it to the 200×200 inside the admin area and added “fullsize” to the php file.

    I tried in all three major browsers Chrome, Safari and Firefox. It’s all the same. :S

    #860724

    by the way i found it a bit unpolite to have some questions concerning to a website and supress right mouse button.

    i can see on your example page that the full-size image is taken:
    https://www.westend.com/wp-content/uploads/westend_london_alexander_mcqueen_pin-1.png

    i told you to make a png square which has on top more transparency. click on the png above on https://kriesi.at/support/topic/google-map-marker-custom-resize/#post-859817
    thats all

    I think more explanation is not possible – so you now have to wait for a mod – give them your backend data.
    So they could do it for you. You see on my site that it works this way!

    Hi,

    Thanks @Guenni007 for help us.

    Best regards,

    again : you have to upload an image in that quality you like to optain.
    your image now is 80px x 80px – as our code did – he takes the full-size image but than scaled it up to the given 200px x 200px

    see your source code : (click to enlarge)

    your image (full-size) what you used for it is: https://www.westend.com/wp-content/uploads/westend_london_pin-1.png

    so upload a sqaure image ( a png – must not be centered but obviously had to be square) bigger than 200×200 and take that for your marker !

    Hey Guenter,

    Thanks for the input.

    Best regards,
