Google Map in my blog?

  1. Can I integrate a google map screen of an area in a blog?

  2. Are you hosted here at wordpress.COM? If so, please provide a link to your blog and consider linking it in your user name as explained in the sticky, 8 Things, at the top of the forums.

    If you are hosted here, please check the FAQ on Google Maps.

  3. I tried it out, like the descrition it says, all what I can see is the link "Google MAp" the html code was not transformet to the code

  4. Well, you still haven't given us a link to your blog so that's the best we can do. We don't even know if you are hosted here.

  5. Ok, I will make a test page with Map included, I wiil come back soon...

  6. Map of LA

  7. Ah, I think WP.com doesn't allow frame for security reasons.

  8. Actually, yes, we can use google maps on our WordPress.COM blogs.

    The instructions are here http://faq.wordpress.com/2008/07/03/using-google-maps/

    Works just fine too. :)

  9. FYI viewer2008 - we can't look at a post that has not been published. Only you can.

  10. @justjeniffer, thx i read the instruction before, , Number 7 doesn't work.

    7) Click Save. You will notice that the code has changed; WordPress has converted the code from Google Maps into the required shortcode.

  11. @vivianpaige Ok. Now is this thread published.

    before save:

    <iframe width="300" height="300" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?client=opera&q=google&ie=UTF8&oe=utf-8&s=AARTsJpYhTgyHgXy3eJpw_jP4f-O91os8g&ll=37.09024,-95.712891&spn=20.981197,26.367188&z=4&output=embed"></iframe>
    <small>Größere Kartenansicht</small>

    after save:

    Größere Kartenansicht

    my test:

    http://viewer2008.wordpress.com/2008/11/06/test-google-map/

  12. is there a special parameter in the profile to set this work?

  13. Now, that IS odd. That particular google map doesn't convert to a shortcode. Haven't a clue why.

    The only thing I can suggest is try recreating the map and copying the new HTML code into the Visual Editor.

  14. And contrary to what the FAQ advides against, I took the above codes, converted them into the shortcode format myself, and they both work:

    [googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps?client=opera&q=Los+Angeles&ie=UTF8&oe=utf-8&g=Los+Angeles&s=AARTsJol_5LWlYjqNUN3ic3CD9JkYCUfQg&ll=34.311681,-118.108521&spn=0.680587,0.823975&z=9&iwloc=addr&output=embed&w= 300&h= 300]
    [googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps?client=opera&q=google&ie=UTF8&oe=utf-8&s=AARTsJpYhTgyHgXy3eJpw_jP4f-O91os8g&ll=37.09024,-95.712891&spn=20.981197,26.367188&z=4&output=embed&w= 300&h= 300]

  15. Ah, the codes didn't register correctly. It should be:
    [googlemaps ALL_THE_PART_FROM_HTTP_TO_EMBED&w=300&h=300]

  16. Hi @panaghiotisadam

    where I can find the synthax to translate the code into shortcode, there a special pages , which make this translation?

  17. I've seen in a few instances - when the map code is not converted to a shortcode - that the language parameter in the URL of the map is not set to "en". If you are viewing Google Maps in a different language than English, you will need to change this parameter in the URL. We've recently stumbled across this after a few reports.

  18. @viewer2008: Seems we've got a misunderstanding. The model I gave above, and the code you pasted now, IS the shortcode. That's what would come up if you pasted the full code and the wp coverter worked, that's what you paste in your post - no more to do.

  19. @bubel: ah, I see. Thats the problem. I will test this.

  20. @Babel: which parameter is the language parameter, and how I can set this parameter to "en"?
