G) Technical details (for advanced users) - top

The design settings for the plugin stores in the database. Each time you save settings plugin automatically generates CSS file that is used on the pages with map.

So if you want to manually customize the CSS, you should use the file "custom.css" ([plugin_path]/css/custom.css) This file is automatically activated after file are generated and can override any styles.

For cases when plugin is hidden (for example map under tab), you can reinitialize plugin by calling this function (when plugin is visible):

				mapNPointsReinit()
			
So if you have content under tabs on your site you can use something like this:
				<script type="text/javascript">
					$('#tab2').click(function() {
						mapNPointsReinit();
					});
				</script>
