Google Maps in posts
I have tried several times to embed a google map in a post of mine, which seems to work. However, when you next open the post it disappears and you’re just left with a ‘view larger map’ link at the bottom.
However you’ll need to read the instructions from Google carefully, since this is a little more complicated than just pasting the code as usual.
deltafoxtrot, thank you very much for this info and for the links. I’m going to try this out :-)
And here’s where you can grab the API-Key:
isadora, you’re most welcome. I should have shared this on the forums earlier.
One more thought on this thing: If you’re on a custom domain (as I am) the map won’t display in the Rich-Text Editor. On the Blog however it will appear just fine. That is because your Google allows the image to be loaded only from the domain associated with the API-Key.
Multiple API-Keys for multiple domains are possible
That hint about the visual editor is going to spare us some support questions… :-) Thanks again.
Thank you, deltafoxtrot. Very helpful and already bookmarked.
I’ll throw a quick howto together. Stay tuned
