Support » Plugin: XML Google Maps » [Plugin: XML Google Maps] How does it work?

  • I installed it, enabled it, and added an API key.

    I tried to follow the first example here (hint: copying and pasting is quite difficult when the text is an image): http://www.matusz.ch/blog/projekte/xml-google-maps-wordpress-plugin-en/samples/n1/

    I added the following to a page since I couldn’t copy/paste the example: <a href="http://maps.google.com/?ll=33.753942,-84.391125&spn=0.003992,0.008245&z=18">Map [maptype=G_SATELLITE_TYPE;panzoomcontrol=large;overviewmapcontrol=hide;scalecontrol=hide;maptypecontrol=show;align=left]</a>

    But the plugin isn’t intercepting it. It’s just getting displayed as a link.

    Any hints?

    I agree. Perhaps a great plugin. But I had no idea how to use it either. I had to write the text (because I could not copy it) into wordpress, then it gave hyperlinked text, not a map!?! A bit strange I thought.

    API key? This sounds *quite* outdated since maps API v3 doesn’t require any key – beside XML is outdated as well – nowadays JSON is rather common.
    I’m writing GPS related scripts / WP plug-ins by myself… just can release them since it’s not my property anymore…
