    That is a great idea, but not something the widget can do yet. However, we can add that to a list of feature improvements for future updates

    Just to be clear... You can add a map to a "Post" right now, just not a "Page". To add a map to your post, edit the post, and insert the shortcode anywhere into your post. The shortcode to use can be found in the Google Map Widget controls on the right.

    Lovin' your theme, TravelBlogSite.

    I see myself using the Google maps feature quite a bit in the future, so please help me understand:
    In order to use this feature, I would go into Google Maps and find a (or create a custom) map and then get the GoogleMaps code. Then I would paste it into the TravelBlog Google Widget? Then it would appear within or next to that particular post?

    Do I have that right?

    Generating a Google Maps API key
    In order to use the Google Maps Creator, you will need access to your own Google Maps API key, which you can generate from the API sign-up page.

    Thanks shanmarsh2.
    I'll visit the Google Maps help center to find out more about signing up for an API key. Since I have already installed numerous Google maps on my trailsnet website, I may already be signed up for an API key.

    Hi Trailsnet,

    Please refer to our support site http://www.freetravelwebsitetemplates.com for details on how to use the Google Maps feature of this theme. Look under "Features" in the top menu.

    A quick explaination: You do not need your own API key, we have build that in for you. All you need to do is insert a simple bit of shortcode into your Post body, and enter almost any level of address in the Post field we have provided and voila! Your Post will display a map in the body, and the sidebar widget will display points for all your posts on the Global map.

    The comment made above by shanmarsh2 does not apply to this theme's Google Maps feature. He is correct only if you are doing a custom integration.
