Google maps- how to adjust/set the zoom (4 posts)

    Hi, I've installed the API as per your directions but it keeps showing the map waaaaaay zoomed out.
    I can't find any settings to change on either the plugin (in WordPress) or in Google API pages. I also tried to hack the css but couldn't find the relevant files in my theme options edit page....

    How do I set the map to zoom in to a specific zoom length please? On your example/text entry page I can change most of the data and save it by pressing enter but changing the zoom level on the map doesn't seem to want to save. Is there another way?

    Thanks- great plugin btw!!

    Hi Guys,

    I changed the zoom by editing "bigContactForm.js" located in


    on line 8 change the zoom amount to any number you like.

    Great plugin by the way!

    Good luck.

    Well, that will be overwritten if you update your plugin..

    Similar to WordPress you can overwrite BigContact options..
    In your theme custom javascript file just define that you'll be using custom BigContact map and add all your Google map options.

    var custom_big_contact_map = true;
    Here is an example of one of our projects using custom BigContact maps.
    Check the custom.js file, this one is zoomed at 15.
