Adding a Campaigns Map

Once you have set locations for your campaigns, you can add a Google Map displaying your campaigns by location, using the [campaigns] shortcode.

To display the campaigns on a map, simply add map=1 as a shortcode attribute. You can also set the width, height and zoom level of the map. Example:

[campaigns map=1 width=900px height=600px zoom=5]
