    Found & fixed the error – thanks for reporting it. Should be OK in 2.0.1.

    2.0.1 also adds:
    – street view
    – enable/disable keyboard shortcuts



    ok, i deleted the extra ‘&’, now it works just fine.

    however the map is displayed with large parts ‘greyed out’.

    any thoughts? is it my theme?

    much thanks for the great work!

    Hi Thomas,

    I’m not sure what you meant about the ‘&’ but the plugin seems to be working. I think the map is greyed out because of CSS settings in your theme conflict with Google maps.

    If a map is to be hidden it must be with “visibility: hidden’ rather than ‘display: none’ on the map <div>. Otherwise Google has trouble determining the map size.

    I think your tab control (tabber.js?) is probably hiding the map. The comments say:

    /* When a tab is to be hidden, instead of setting display=’none’, we
    set the class of the div to classTabHide. In your screen
    stylesheet you should set classTabHide to display:none. In your
    print stylesheet you should set display:block to ensure that all
    the information is printed.

    You could try setting your classTabHide to “visibility: hidden” instead, or try a different tab control.

    Hi there
    I am getting the same problem where i am trying to display the map in a tab, and only a small piece of the actual map is displayed in the top left corner.. the rest is greyed out. if i reload or refresh the page however, the entire map displays correctly. i do not want my users to have to refresh the page to see the map correclty.

    I did change my stylesheet for my tabs to visibility:hidden, as suggested by the above post, but this does not seem to have helped.

    Any help would be appreciated

    I have exactly the same issue, have a map in a tab and the map is greyed out and a small section appearing top left only. Any solutions apart from the ‘visibility:hidden’ (which doesn;t work for me).
