Onclick problem with embedded Google Map

  • My problem concerns the use of Google Maps. I embedded a map in one of my pages and added a link below the map that reloads the map to show another location so the visitor can see other locations on the same embedded map. I am using the following code (I have cut the Google Map address to simplify the example):

    <iframe id="MapLocal" width="500" height="412" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps...."</iframe><a href="#">Link to new Location</a>

    I have not had any problems for the past year and it worked really well. But now all of a sudden it won’t work. I have tried disabling my plug ins one by one and none of them seem to be responsible for breaking the functionality.

    If I simply copy and paste the same code into a HTML page it works fine indicating it is WordPress that all of a sudden has a problem. I can’t think if anything I changed recently that might have effected this other than install a Google Site Map plugin. But I tried disabling that anyway and the problem remained.

    Can any one offer a possible solution or reason why this broke all of a sudden?

  • I can’t get the code to display in this forum, it keeps getting stripped out. I’ll try again in a comment to see if it sticks.

    <iframe id="MapOfArea" width="500" height="412" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps...output=embed"></iframe><a href="#" onclick="document.getElementById('MapOfArea').src='http://maps.google.com/maps...output=embed'">New Location</a>

    Anyone?

    I had the same thing happen. After migrating to a new host, which involved moving my database, I lost the ability to embed Google Maps via iframes as an admin on the site. Anyone know what database settings may have change to prevent this?
