Embedded Google Map not showing on browser.

    Hi all,

    I’ve followed the embedding instructions found here http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-maps/, 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=”https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=1301+S+Capital+of+Texas+Hwy,+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

    [googlemaps https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=1301+S+Capital+of+Texas+Hwy,+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&w=425&h=350%5D

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

    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

    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!

    Interesting since I went to Google for the code and the code would not work straight from Google –

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

    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 –

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

    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 ???

    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. ;-)

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