[Plugin: Google Maps for WordPress] Where do I put the URL address (6 posts)

    My Google Map does not show up. I can't find, or read, where to put the URL address into the code developed by "Google Maps fo WordPress". All that shows up is a space where the Map should be.
    I'm using the plugin with WordPress 2.8.6, PHP5 and have Deactivated Lightbox 2.

    The instruction say it's easy to insert (blow code) where you want it:
    GoogleMaps ... but I don't know where to put it?

    Hi weblinksontario,

    once you have entered your API key in the plugin interface (by clicking on "settings" on the plugins page or in Tools -> Google maps), you can add a special marker to embed your Google maps in your posts or in your pages.
    For example :
    [map:http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&source=embed&hl=en&geocode=&q=400+Gran+Bahama+Boulevard,+Davenport,+Florida&sll=49.891235,-97.15369&sspn=23.158779,45.615234&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=400+Gran+Bahama+Blvd,+Davenport,+Polk,+Florida+33897,+United+States&ll=28.333622,-81.654854&spn=0.055981,0.095015&z=14&iwloc=A]
    To get an url to use, like in this example, go to Google maps choose a place to show or "load" a saved map by clicking on "My Maps". You'll see at the top right corner of the map a "Link" label, click on it, it will show you two fields, get the one with "Paste link in email or IM" and copy it. Then in your post (or in your page) enter [map:the url of the copied link] and save your article.

    All should be ok ;).

    Amicably,

    Pierre.

    Thanks Pierre_02:
    But, I tried it and I'm not getting it.

    What does it mean in the "Google Maps for WordPress" Instructions when they say: It's simple to insert
    <a href:http://maps.google.ca...........

    They don't say to insert [map:http://maps.google.ca.........

    Thanks ttweb

    Also, does it have to be a "Saved Map"?
