Tiny MCE button for embedding a google map via google maps link. No API key needed. Also includes shortcode ability.
IMPORTANT: This plugin is NO LONGER actively maintained. It still pretty much 'works', but if you're relying on it for embedding maps, you should probably begin looking for a new solution.
If getting an API key is beyond the skill set or desires of your users, but they still want to be able to have a Google map, this plugin is the answer. It adds a button to the visual editor that allows them to use the link from Google Maps to embed a plugin. Authors can embed maps and set width, height, marginwidth, marginheight, frameborder, and scrolling properties. Power users can directly enter a shortcode in a post, page or widget. Shortcode should be entered in the following format:
[cetsEmbedGmap src=http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=37.0625,-95.677068&spn=53.609468,107.138672&z=4 width=350 height=425 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 frameborder=0 scrolling=no]
This version adds a quicktag to the html editor, opens the larger map in a new window, and defaults to map view instead of sat view.
