Lazy-Load PowerMaps

One of the users pointed out that loading PowerMaps is bringing down the page speed scores, and requested to add Lazy-load for PowerMaps.

How to enable Lazy-load in PowerMaps

After you add PowerMaps in Oxygen Builder, there is an option at the bottom right to enable or disable the Lazy-Load functionality.

Added Interactive Engine action to center a PowerMap based on specific coordinates

With PowerMaps we can create a complete real estate listing website (kinda). One use case is showing all the available listing on a single map. In this case, you might want to center the map based on specific long lat coordinates, now you can do it using Interactive Engine Event action, ''Center Map'' and add that event action after the ''Page Load'' event.

Added an option to center PowerMaps inside a repeater.

When dealing with several independent, individual maps the maps are not centered by default but in this release we have made all the Maps centered to their own positions by default.

Added an Interactive Engine action to add Custom Markers

We can let users add Custom Markers based on specific events, and if the Customer marker is already added we will go that location.
In this example we have added a button which can be used to add a Custom Marker.

Added the ability to feed PowerMaps using Google Maps ACF field

In the previous release we added the ability to load Long Lat coordinates into ACF from, but entering long and lat values is very time consuming so we added the ability to select location from Google Maps ACF field.
This makes it very easy to add multiple map locations.

Using ACF Google Maps field to enter long and lat coordinates.

These are the improvements we added in this release, we will have couple of small releases before 2.2.
