This plugin provides a simple alternative to Google Maps and displays a customizable map on your website.
The service is based on OpenMapTiles, an open-source map and schema, which is hosted by our agency. We are in full control of the German-based server environment and thus don’t log any kind of personal information. You don’t need a contract in any shape or form and our service is fully GDPR compliant.
The usage of CLICKSPORTS Maps is completely free for private and charitable use. The only thing we require you to do is registering your website domain with us so we can activate the service for your website.
Business customers are charged a small monthly fee to use our service on their website.

I have a business website, do I need to register with you?
Yes, a small monthly fee will be charged. Get in touch with us via our website.
Are there any map themes to choose from?
Yes, we currently provide 3 different map themes and customizable color for the map marker.
I can’t choose any map themes, the select field is empty.
Please make sure the setting ‘allow_url_fopen’ is enabled by your hosting configuration. This is neccessary because all map styles are loaded from our server. Ask your hosting provider for details on how to change this setting.
Can I display multiple markers on a single map?
Yes, you can create multiple map markers and display all of them on your map.
Can I display multiple maps on a single page?
No, unfortunately this is not supported at the moment. You can, however, display individual maps beyond the global settings on another page.
See the settings page for shortcodes and details.
I tried the full width map feature, but it breaks my layout.
Support for the full width map option heavily depends on your current theme and is out of our hands unfortunately.
Where can I get the coordinates for my desired location?
There are no reviews for this plugin.
