  1. I have installed the RVM maps plug in and I really like it very much and it does fulfill my need to a good extent. What I need is a map of the Arab world (some countries in Africa and Asia) and when I click on a country I get some information about it. The map should look something similar to the one in the link:
    not exactely the same. I mean I have tried the world map example that come with the plugin and it would be perfect for me if I can get one similar to it but Zoomed in to the area I want (Africa and West Asia). Is this available?? Or can I get it customized for me? and if so at what cost.

    Thanks a lot.

    1. Hi Samar,

      thanks for your interest and for using RVM.
      Although I have uploaded maps of Africa and Asia, the standard ones do not fit exactly your need. In order to achieve this customised map I need to create a specific one. I’ll contact you via email.


      1. Dear Enrico,

        Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. It would be great if you could help me. I’ll be waiting for your email.

  2. I’m looking for a map of east African countries Ethiopia and Kenya but don’t see it. Please let me know if you have or can provide one.

    1. Hi Ethan Onze,

      map of Kenia is already available: Map Of Kenia, while for the Ethiopian one you should wait and we could keep in contact via email.

      Thanks and have a nice day !

    1. Hi Rikke,

      you need to edit the corresponding javascript file inside responsive-vector-maps > js > regions-data .
      Choose country you need to update, open with your favourite editor.

      I.e: in order to change Belgium subdivision names, open jquery-jvectormap-be_merc_en.js and replace names you would like to change in danish.

      Let me know if it solves!

  3. I do not really understand how to implement a map on a post, or a widget. I pasted the [rvm_map mapid="143"] shortcode both in the editor area or in a text widget text area, but it dies not show at all. When posted in the post area wordpress gives out a 404 error, when inserted into a text widget the widget shows the pure text “[rvm_map mapid="143"]“. Can you tell me what I do wrong?

    1. Hi Peter,

      in order to publish the map into a post, what you did ( copy and paste the generated shortcode inside the edit area of the post ) is correct. It’s not correct within the text widget as it will be treated as a pure text.
      It’s difficult to say what is the issue without any further details about the issue ( i.e.: errors in console? ).

      When you say in the post editor I think you mean the map editor area. Try to create a new post (on the left menu ) and past the shortcode.

      Have you checked the double quotes are really “double quotes”? Sometimes some editors turn into like blockquotes.

      Then the 404 make me think is related to the fact that your wordpress probably uses permalinks and you need to “inform” your system you set a new Custom Post Types, RVM.

      In order to solve the 404 issue, just go to “Settings” > “Permalinks” and save again your settings.
      This insures the system gets new post created within RVM !

      Please let me know,


  4. I am trying to use your map. I need to put an url in the link field with the character “&”, but it doesn’t work becouse when I use the link it is transformed with &
    there are any way to scape the & character?

    thank you very much

    1. Hi Vanessa,

      I cannot reproduce it.
      Can you please replace the “&” with “;” ? It should work and it’s even recommended by W3C.
      Let me know!

  5. Is it possible to add a key to the map to show what the markers / different colour regions actually represent to someone viewing the map? For example: marker = our office, blue = region type 1, red = region type 2? Many thanks

    1. Hi Andy,

      sorry I do not get the question.
      Can ypu pelase articulate it differently?

      Sorry and thanks for contacting us!

  6. Hey .. i want to buy canada map…if supposed i buy this custom map n install through backend it will come same functionlity i.e managble through backend color, link, content on over …???
    please let me know if yes….

  7. Hi, is there a way to set one default color for all the countries where a link is added? But still have another color for the countries without link. So if I want to change the country color with link I don’t have to do it for each country separately?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lucinda,
      unfortunately not, you can just select a different background colour for the linked subdivision manually. There is no functionality integrated in the RVM plugin which allow user to select one colour for all linked subdivisions.

      Sorry and good luck!

  8. How can I translate the wordl map to 4 different languages? Should I duplicate the .js file and rename it (i.e.: jquery-jvectormap-world_merc_pt.js). Then how will RVM identify the page language? Or… is there any other way to do it?


    1. Hi Luciano,

      sorry for late reply. What you can do is:
      1) Duplicate map and give a different name, i.e.: mymao_merc_de in case you want it in deutsch
      2) Open the .js file and change the map name accordingly (same name of directory so mymao_merc_de just after ‘addMap’,)
      3) Translate name of the subdivision always in the .js file
      4) If you want to change subdivisions’ name in back end (in Subdisions tab of the dashboard), open the rvm-cm-settings.php and translate name there too (third value of the array)
      5) Zip the map folder and install it as usual in RVM custom map

      Then you can use that map in posts and page or sidebars choosing which map to show accordingly with the language using get_locale(); wp function this way:

      if (get_locale() == 'de_DE') {
      //if deutsch load rvm map in deutch

      Let me know and good luck!
