Google Maps

    I have created my own map on google maps, which I now want to embed in a post. Here is a link to the map:

    https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zU_GJ8hPxh5Y.kS-GLCA8Yyd4

    I followed the support pages information and received the following embed link:

    <iframe src=”https://mapsengine.google.com/map/embed?mid=zU_GJ8hPxh5Y.kS-GLCA8Yyd4″ width=”640″ height=”480″></iframe>

    However, whenever I hit preview post, I cannot see the map, and if I hit Save Draft, the above link disappears altogether. What do I have to do to embed this on my site?

    Thanks in advance.

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

    Are you putting it in the Text or the Visual editors?

    I just tried it in text, and it has the same problem – the info disappears if I save the draft, and does not show up in when I preview the post.

    I am wondering if the issue is not related to the information provided by Google Maps. I did this as a test and had the same issue as torontostreetcars.

    I tried it again, and I still get the problem, and yes I am getting the same information, so it’s not me.

    Your URL suggests you’re using Google Maps Engine. I believe that’s not yet supported at WordPress.com. See this thread:

    Ah, good catch. There are no value-added iterations of Google Maps that work here. ONLY the bare Google Maps embed. If you want to show a route or something, use a PNG file or something similar.

    If only they provided a flash code instead of an iframe, there could be a workaround. There’s nothing we can do with unsupported iframes.
