[resolved] Inserting saved map into wordpress page and other issue (2 posts)

    I have signed in to maquest and begun adding pins to a saved map.
    I want to use the custom pins - how do I do that?
    I also want to add this saved map with my pins to my wordpress site but when I click on 'Insert map' in my editor a new map opens up. How can I direct to my saved map?
    I also want to include a list of my locations underneath the map on my website that refers back to the pins on the map - how do I do that?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi Jet,

    Apologies for not seeing your post here sooner!

    1) Custom pins - when you start adding pins to the map, click the pin that says "Change Me" next to the location in the list below the map. That will pull up a pin gallery as well as an option to use your own custom pin. Provide the URL for your custom pin, choose the anchor point and set your shadow option to on or off and you should be set!

    2) Currently if you create maps via tools.mapquest.com on your account, you'll have to use the embed code provided from that account to add it to your WordPress post/page. We have not yet provided a way to link your blog to your individual account.

    3) We don't currently provide a way to automatically list the locations under the site, but we are exploring a number options to correlate the on map information to content on the page for future releases!
