Embeddable Google Maps

  1. Will WordPress.com support Google Maps' new feature of being able to embed a map into a page? Currently Google allows you to paste an iframe snippet of a particular map into a blog or webpage.

    just curious

  2. I doubt it.

    Iframes and javascript are banned at wp.com.

    Perhaps you could make the suggestion to staff? If enough people ask they might just listen and do something about it.

  3. i have tired embedding google map on wordpress using Google latest feature. It not working. I leaving for blogger.com instead. It works well.

  4. Yeah, I'd be really happy if we can use the embeddable code for Google Maps under WordPress.

  5. Add another request to allow embeddable Google Maps at WP!

    It'd be a phenomenal feature to have!

  6. ssyap - your loss!

    Folks - please, contact support and suggest it to them. Staff don't populate the forum too often and like to keep track of the feature requests.

    :)

  7. Embeddable Google maps would be soo cool! Please WP make it happen!!

  8. Support suggestion sent!

  9. I vote YES to allow embedded Google Maps in WP.com pages !

  10. That's nice but it counts for zilch here. If you want your opinion on the record then you need to tell staff http://wordpress.com/contact-support/

  11. embeddable google maps would be fantastic.

    Hi there,
    If you want to put your request on the record then you need to tell staff during support hours on weekdays. You can use this link http://wordpress.com/contact-support/ or you can use the blue support button found on the top right hand corner of any admin side blog page to do so.
    HTH :)

  13. I was searching for support for google maps and found this. Adding a google maps widget to wordpress.com would be great.

  15. Another one for the maps... please!

  16. Do as timethief recommends right above your comment and send a request in to staff. If they get enough requests, who knows?

  17. My request already sent. WP is great..with google maps would be even better!!!

  18. Humor:
    LOL ... maybe wordpress.com should be courting Google to buy them out ... LOL :D
    That way everyone would be happy that BigBrother was everywhere collecting private information at every turn and and controlling every aspect of everyone's cyber life, as if it isn't now. ;)

  19. i want/need google maps. since they're not supported, i'm looking for a wordpress alternative. is there one?

    thanks.

    will send email to wp support when they open back up. it's on my todo.
