Fluent Forms maps input (usable with Toolset Maps too)

If you want to add map field with click to put marker function and save the GPS data, you can use the Google Maps API with Fluent Forms.

You will need Google Maps API Key and plugin for custom code snippets (you can also build your own plugin from the code by saving as PHP and adding Plugin header info to the file).

I am also using Advanced scripts for creation of Shortcode.

Prepare Fluent form

As a first step, create two numeric fields in Fluent Forms and add them this name attributes:

Name attribute in fluent forms
Numeric fields for Latitude and Longtitude

As a second thing, create a shortcode field and put this shortcode inside:

Fluent Forms Shortcode field

Prepare the Map

Get your Google Maps API key

Add Google Maps script below to Advanced scripts and save it as a shortcode:

Using script as a shortcode in Advanced Scripts
<style type="text/css">
.acf-map {
    width: 100%;
    height: 400px;
    border: #ccc solid 1px;
    margin: 20px 0;

// Fixes potential theme css conflict.
.acf-map img {
   max-width: inherit !important;
<script src=" YOUR KEY HERE"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
(function( $ ) {

 * initMap
 * Renders a Google Map onto the selected jQuery element
 * @date    22/10/19
 * @since   5.8.6
 * @param   jQuery $el The jQuery element.
 * @return  object The map instance.
function initMap( $el ) {

    // Create gerenic map.
    var mapArgs = {
        zoom        : $'zoom') || 16,
        mapTypeId   : google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
    var map = new google.maps.Map( $el[0], mapArgs );

    // Init marker handlers

    // Center map to static location
    centerMap( map );

    // Return map instance.
    return map;

function updateFields(location) {

 * initMarkers

function initMarkers( map ) {

    var marker;

    google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'click', function(event) {

    function placeMarker(location) {

        if (marker == null)
            marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                position: location,
                map: map,
                animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP,
                title:"Drag me!"

            function handleDrag(event) {

            marker.addListener("drag", handleDrag)
            marker.addListener("dragend", handleDrag)



 * centerMap
function centerMap( map ) {
    var location = {lat: 49.81749199999999, lng: 15.472962}; // CHANGE THE DEFAULT MAP POSITION - current is Czech republic

// Render maps on page load.
        var map = initMap( $(this) );

<div class="acf-map" data-zoom="7">
<div class="marker" data-lat="" data-lng=""></div>

If you do not have Advanced scripts, just create a new shortcode and put the code below into function:

<?php function twiki_ff_map() {
    $output = ob_get_contents();
    return $output;
add_shortcode( 'twiki_ff_google_maps', 'twiki_ff_map' );

The result

Save the form and use it on your website page or post or whenever you want. You should see this:

Variant for Toolset Forms

This works for Toolset Forms for creating posts as well. But instead of creating custom fields for latitude and longtitude, just create one custom field of Map type. Then in form use two generic text fields named “latInput” and “lngInput”. After making it working you will need to save data from generic fields to the custom map field. So change the


to your Map fields slug and use this custom code to save the data on form saving:

add_action('cred_save_data', 'custom_function',10,2);
function custom_function($post_id, $form_data)
    // if a specific form
    if ($form_data['id']==83) //your form ID
        $lat= $_POST["latInput"];
        $long = $_POST["lngInput"];
        $gps = "{".$lat.",".$long."}";
     update_post_meta($post_id, 'wpcf-custom-map-field-slug', $gps);
