Interactive Map: Help!

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

I'm looking at creating a website with a map for a client, that has multiple points on it. The pointers would need pop ups showing more information about each site. I have looked at some options for plugins (which I've never used before with Squarespace). Can anyone recommend a good place to start? Legit third party plugins? Recommended interactive maps? Good examples of similar squarespace sites? Any help, much appreciated.

I can recommend the Advanced Map Block plugin. It's really easy to add points to the map by creating blog posts - just add the address to the location section of each post.

Thanks Paul. I have been looking at this option. I can see one example on the Squarespace Website Plugins site that looks like it might work. Do you know of other examples that I can check out?

Also, what if the sites don't have addresses, i.e. they are just plots of land?

You can add any location to a blog post by moving the marker:
