Post Google Map
[resolved] switched map from post to widgets (5 posts)

    I can't get my map to function the way I want (I'm very new to WordPress):
    My map at the bottom of every post should show the location of the posts artist.
    The map at the right side-bar should show a pin for the country of every previous entry (so viewers can navigate to posts via the map).
    If you could be troubled to go in on my site (andanse.com) - you'll see the post "Album 98. Taalbi Brothers: "Ameksa".
    On this post there's a map on the bottom of the page, which shows pins of my three first post entries. This map I would like to have on the right hand side-bar.
    The map showing on the right side-bar now, should be on the bottom of the post (because this shows where that specific band is from).
    - In other words the two maps should be switched... I've tried everything I can think of, but I've only worked on my blog a week, so there's a lot of thing yet to learn...
    Sincerely
    Anderz

    Hey Anderz, did you ever get this figured out at all?

    When I go to http://andanse.com/2013/03/10/album-98-taalbi-brothers-ameksa/ which is the single post view for it, I see a pin for Milwaukee, but the map on the right at the top just shows up zoomed in on Madison. I assume this isn't how you prefer it.

    Hello, Michael!

    Thank you for our email. I've posted around 16 posts up to now, but I've still not been able to show the maps the way I want it (as you've noticed).
    The map in the post itself is ok (even though I can't figure out how to display it more zoomed out).

    But the map on the sidebar, doesn't do anything. I feel like I've tried everything - even payed solutions.
    The idea is that the sidebar should show the world map, wit a pin for every country corresponding to posts published. - And that the reader should be able to go to posts by clicking on the pins. Somewhat in the same fashion as the categories work.

    I would be very grateful for any suggestions and tips/help for fixing this problem! I'm a novice to the whole blog-world, and learning a little each day...

    Best regards
    Anderz Døving

    I think once I get around to it, hopefully in the next couple weeks or so, I am going to look into a widget that is specifically used to show all locations and pins. I don't believe the current widget is built for that, and I think it'd be a good one for those who want it. Keep an eye out.
