Google Maps marker to address

Google Maps marker to address

There is nothing built in to the Quform plugin to do this currently but it can be done with a bit of custom coding.

Step 1

Add an HTML element to the form. In the settings for it, set the content of the HTML field to the placeholder for the map, and set a height on it.

1
<div id="map" style="height:300px;"></div>
<div id="map" style="height:300px;"></div>

Make sure to add the code to the Text tab of the editor (not the Visual tab).

Step 2

Add a Text element to the form to store the address, then add the following code to the WordPress theme functions.php file (or create a plugin for it).
