    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

    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.

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

    Add another request to allow embeddable Google Maps at WP!

    It’d be a phenomenal feature to have!

    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.

    :)

    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/

    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 :)

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

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

    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. ;)
