Maps Widget

It is vital to have a website that represents your business on the internet. But often, clients also want to know your exact geographical location, especially if you run a store, restaurant, barbershop, or any other type of brick-and-mortar enterprise. 

That is why Boxmode is introducing the easy-to-use Maps widget that allows you to show your precise location on a map using the Google Maps service. 

You can learn about the widget’s general settings (how to add, move, resize, and delete the widget) in our Widgets Overview article.
