  1. Hello,
    I installed the plugin and set my address which is displayed when I go to the plugin.
    When I copy the MAP link, the map installs on my site but the address does not follow. How to do

        1. On the previous comment you say that the address is not displayed and in this one you say that you cannot remove it… 🙂 I'm a little lost.
