Google maps embed

    Hello, my embed google maps disappeared from my blog!
    Now when I try no copy the given HTML code nothing happens, i can only see a blank page or the code! what can I do??
    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is buracosdenatal.wordpress.com.

  2. Sometimes staff change things without telling us. Did you used to be able to use the code in the Visual editor? Try putting it in the HTML editor instead, then hitting Update.

  3. I am encountering the same issue. Using the HTML editor, not the Visual. Copied below is the message I just sent WordPress Support. Anybody have any ideas?

    I did:

    Went to a Google Map that I created:

    http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=18.340024,-77.512922&spn=0.037558,0.034633&t=h&z=15&msid=208549682198117587615.00049ca436b950e9f0d70

    and used the "Link" link to get iframe code to embed in my website:

    <iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=35.101934,-95.712891&spn=64.25716,70.576172&t=h&msid=208549682198117587615.00049ca436b950e9f0d70&output=embed"></iframe>
    <small>View The Alps, Jamaica in a larger map</small>

    I pasted this code into the HTML view of the page editor of one of the pages on my website, then clicked Update.

    I saw:

    The iframe code was turned into a shortcode:

    [googlemaps http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=h&msa=0&msid=208549682198117587615.00049ca436b950e9f0d70&ll=18.453557,-77.518158&spn=0.455936,0.583649&z=10&iwloc=00049ca4478fbcd6f1eb7&output=embed&w=425&h=350%5D

    But when I view the page, nothing appears below the title; the shortcode produces no output.

    I expected:

    To see an embedded Google Map in my page. I have done this on other WordPress sites with essentially the same procedure, and it seems to work intermittently; I can't figure out what makes it work and what makes it fail.

  4. My embedded Google Maps have disappeared too.

    I followed the instructions as per WordPress.com help and the map was displaying fine. Today, I've checked the post and the map has completely gone - the post itself has not been updated.

    Help?

  5. There seems to be a problem with the insert Google Map - maybe staff is working - best to contact the Staff and ask them to look into this.

  6. i have to report the same issue. the embedded map was there, and this morning it is gone. any help or response is appreciated.

  7. I previously flagged this thread so it gets Staff attention. Please be patient while waiting for them to reply.

  8. We're looking into this.

  9. right. I'm having the same issue...pretty discouraging after working for hours creating the finicky-as-hell google map. I've been updating the google map I want embedded for the last couple months but it's just not working this time...

  10. @wheelsandfeet - if you have the map as you want it - copy the link code but save it in a plain text editor - if you have a PC Notepad is already installed - then save the file - that will save the link in a plain text file - then when the problem here is done then you just past the code in your site.

    Same here. Anyone with approximate time this issue will be fixed???

  13. The Happiness Engineers has posted above that they are working on the problem, I would expect one of them to post here when things are fixed.

  14. I wouldn't expect it over the weekend.

  15. same on my website, used to have a nifty map feature embedded on the site. now all that shows is the text on the website, no images.

  16. @kaseyda: As you can see, you're not the only one experiencing this. Just be patient until staff fixes this issue.

  17. Same issue here - does anyone have any alternative ideas for maps on travel blogs? You know, the kind that track your path.

  18. same here, this is a big problem on a blog about subway lines :(

  19. there's a program called Spot that tracks your positioning via GPS and records it in a locale that you specify! it costs some dough, though...

  20. Thanks everyone - also having this problem with googlemaps and will wait for reply...

    Thanks for the help. Did it.

  23. Cool :) Now Staff can find your blog.

  24. Are you member of Staff ? Any news on fixing the problems with google maps ? Not in a hurry by any means, just looking for an update.

  25. No. This is a peer support forum and we are Volunteers. Staff have these silver gray background stickers behind their usernames like this.> http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/google-maps-embed-1?replies=25#post-561236 When they have a solution they will post into the thread.

  26. I am having the same issue. I tried reinserting the embed code from Google Maps via these instructions:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-maps/

    WordPress no longer seems to create the googlemaps shortcode when I paste the embed code.

    Thanks for your help.

  27. @plognyc
    Maybe the staff has disabled the shortcode just because they're trying to fix the issue.
    Yesterday wordpress created the shortcode in my case, even though there was still this problem of the blank page.
    Well, I see on this a progress, perhaps i'm wrong, but i prefer be optimistic. :S

  28. Mine is working now!

  29. it's working!!!! thank you!

  30. yes! Luck us! thanks all.
