Embedded Google Map not showing on browser.

  1. Hi all,

    I've followed the embedding instructions found here, but when we view the contact page, I am getting either an empty box in Safari and Chrome, or a "This content cannot be displayed in a frame" error message in Internet Explorer, followed by the "view larger map" link, which does work.

    This is the iframe code from GoogleMaps

    <iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src=",+ste+c-130,+Austin,+TX&aq=t&sll=31.168934,-100.076842&sspn=11.699176,22.258301&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=1301+S+Capital+of+Texas+Hwy+%23130,+Austin,+Travis,+Texas+78746&t=m&z=14&iwloc=A&ll=30.278995,-97.819298&output=embed"></iframe>
    <small>View Larger Map</small>

    and this is the shortcode that wordpress has created


    What can I do to ensure that the map is visible on the contact page? Thanks in advance!

  2. There is something about your code from Google that is not working - I can't get your map to embed in my test blog but I can get a map from a friends blog to embed - so beats me - I have flagged this for staff attention to help

  3. Thank you for the feedback!

  4. You be welcome & good luck

  5. Hi there - I see what you mean. Let me look into this issue further and I'll get back to you. Thanks!

  6. Perfect, thank you kathrynwp

  7. Hi there, I regenerated the map code at Google Maps and added it to your page - the map seems to be displaying OK now. I think there may have been some type of encoding issue with the original map code from Google.

    Let me know if you need anything else!

  8. Interesting since I went to Google for the code and the code would not work straight from Google -

  9. auxclass - something strange was definitely going on there. :-)

  10. Morning Kathrynwp

    I went back to Google Maps and got the code again and it still crashed for me - leaving a big empty box in my test blog Reeds Rants -

  11. auxclass - I actually had to do a completely new search for the address and then it finally worked.

  12. thank you so much!

  13. My pleasure. :-)

  14. Sorry but that map will not work for me - I even tried your search again thing 4 times - opened a new window and tried it - copied embed code (has the iframe) and pasted into both Visual & Text -

    I guess it is good I don't do maps much ???

  15. auxclass - not sure what to tell you. I tested with some other addresses and they all worked fine, might be something weird with this particular address but I couldn't tell you what. ;-)

  16. I did a couple of addresses in a different state and the maps embedded - strange for sure
