Small important reminder: It is possible to move from a free version of the GMapFP component to a Pro version, but not the other way around.

To migrate to D4 you must:

We had been talking about it for many months, that's it. The GMapFP version for Joomla 4 has just been released.

It includes of course Google Map, but also Openstreet Map.

It can also easily integrate other type of map such as Bing, ...


The code for this version of GMapFP has been completely rewritten in order to optimize it and ensure its 100% compatibility with Joomla 4.

In order to start on a good basis, we decided to rewrite GMapFP to be 100% compatible with Joomla 4.

This allows us to have a much cleaner code, to have a component with completely redesigned and additional functionalities: like saving versions and managing tags.

All this work made us fall behind on our provisional planning.

The result to date:

End of June: Availability of a version of GMapFP Free with OSM and Google map for Joomla 4.
Last quarter 2020: Available for the Pro version.

GMapFP has just released its plugin allowing to index GMapFP elements in the advanced search tool of Joomla (finder).

This function is only present with the Pro version of GMapFP.

With the coming of a potentially paid Google Map key, the GMapFP evolution plan is slightly changed :

  • Early 2019: Full rewrite of free GMapFP for Joomla 4 and integration of OpenStreetMap.
  • Integration of OpenStreetMap in the free version for Joomla 3
  • Integration of OpenStreetMap in the Pro version for Joomla 3
  • End of 2019: Full rewrite of GMapFP Pro for Joomla 4
