I have installed this mapping plugin:
I use it to display KML data.
Firstly, I do not want the google maps marker infowindow to be displayed. Originally i was using an iframe and tried to add this code to stop it displaying: “iwloc=&” as described here:
But it didn’t work! From reading other posts, it seems WP might possibly be stripping out some code!
Reading the KML reference guide (http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html)suggests that i should be able to add the following to my KML file to prevent the infowindow being displayed:
But alas, even this does not work. Anyone have any suggestions?
Secondly, i would like to display a tooltip when the user mouseover my KML markers. The KML reference says that all i need to do is add a name tag like this:
<name>tooltip text here</name>
This doesn’t work in WP either! Any suggestions?
Finally, i wanted to add a hyperlink to the marker so that when it is clicked the user is sent to the relevant WP post. According to the KML reference, this can be achieved by adding a url to the <description> tag, like this:
Can’t get this to work either. Any suggestions please?
Perhaps this plugin does not support a full interpretation of the KML reference. Can anyone tell me one that does, or another way to solve these problems.
Many thanks for your help.
