Map markers & InfoWindow settings

Allow users to select markers - if disabled - only default markers will be used.

Type of Map Markers - 2 possible types:

  1. Font Awesome icons (recommended) - icons from the Font Awesome set will be used.
  2. PNG images - images files from "resources/images/map_icons/icons/" folder of the plugin. Site administrator can upload custom icons into "w2gm-plugin/resources/images/map_icons/icons/" folder of your child theme via the Files manager of hosting control panel or via FTP.
    The plugin uses only one folder for PNG icons: native folder or custom folder in your child theme when exists.

Using Font Awesome icons it is possible to select default icon and color of map marker. When "Custom markers on the map" option enabled in listings levels settings - users will be able to select specific icon for each marker. On "Maps listings -> Maps categories" page it is allowed to select specific marker icon and color for each category.

Other settings related to custom PNG images. Do not touch these settings if you do not know what they mean. Modification of these settings needed when you use own custom map markers icons with own sizes. If you are using custom markers PNG images, it is recommended, they all be of same size.
