[resolved] Google Map embed won't show (5 posts)

    I copied and pasted the code Google provided to embed a Google map on a WordPress page. But the image of the map doesn't show, only the link to "View larger Map" is showing.

    The size of the embedded map is 250px x 180 px.

    Can someone help me with this?

    Which editor tab did you use - HTML or Visual? You need to use the HTML tab to embed markup into a page or post and then avoid using the Visual editor for that page/post.

    I pasted in the embed markup in HTML mode. But when I look at the site, the map doesn't show. I did switch back to visual mode thinking that I can "see" how the page would look. Just switching back shouldn't cause a problem, should it?? I hadn't altered the markup in anyway.
    This is the test page I am working on:
    http://www2.islandnet.com/~inforefinery/wp2/?page_id=14

    I actually have an additional problem - I put the first address and map in a table, the table has border set to 0 but it is still showing a border ... what is the problem here??

    I'm afraid it can. :-( The Visual Editor will strip out most HTML markup.

    Thanks esmi, I tried it myself, and yes, it does things to the code ... arghh!

    I have solved the table problem but now another one crops up :( I will ask it as a new question.
