    Keep running into these roadblocks trying to setup GD.

    Went to add new categories to my new CPT and discovered I need Map Icons. Which means I’m going to need custom icons created ….

    Why are these required?

    I just don’t understand.

    To display your listings on the maps.

    I agree it would be better to have a default marker and let you change it if needed than forcing you to create your own from the start.

    I attached a Google Maps default marker to add to all your categories to get you started.

    thank you very much.

    I can return to custom icons later but want to get categories created; this helps a lot.

    Can you choose either to have the address be more vague? I don’t want to let everyone know where the event is until it is a couple of weeks until. Since it is my friends private property. Thank you.

    You can add just the city name as address till the day you want to make it public.


    p.s. you should be opening your own support topics

    FYI the map icon will no longer be a required field from the next release, and will auto-generate an icon if the Font Awesome icon is set.

    Thanks for your feedback.
