This is not possible with the extension, it can only show a set location by entering a latitude and a longitude and on click of a icon/push-pin it will display some information such a address, email etc...what you are requireing is a custom script to do what you need...From the url you provide I can see that you can copy a script that you can insert into WB using the HTML object..

Hi Baconfries,

Ouch!!!

Your work that pays the bills has to take priority.
I hope you can recover all your data.

I'll monitor this thread until you get back on track & can update this extension.

Hope everything works out ok.

Hi Bacon fries,

Thanks for the update,

Has this now rectified the problem of having multiple maps on separate pages located in the same folder?

It maybe a day or so until I can implement this update on my website. I will give you feedback once I have tried.

Yes...I have made it that the map uses a iframe to be placed on each page needed, and that you can now name each map like so mylocation.html, location.html, map1.html, map20.html etc etc doing it this way allowed the extension to generate seperate maps as long as each has its own name...let me know how you get on...

Hi BaconFries,

Just tested your update on 2 pages using 'preview in browser' & the good news is both loaded the correct maps :D

However, the new map expanded the page both horizontally & vertically & placed the map in the bottom right hand corner of the page, I had to scroll across & down to find it!! (could this be because of the iframe????)

I think you are going in the right direction now but it just needs a bit of further tweaking to keep the map where I place it in wysiwyg without expanding the page.

I am trying to create individual maps at a size of 400x300, the majority of these maps will be located on the right hand side of the page directly below the 4 animated gifs (unsure if this info is helpful, but....?)

An example page awaiting for map co-ordinates:

http://www.spy.my/penang/eidelweiss-cafe.html

Again, thanks for efforts to make this work, it will be an awesome extension once perfected.

Hi Baconfries,

I tried the update & it just expanded the webpage horizontally & vertically.

Are you suggesting I use an iframe on the page that links to another separate page?

I've just read up on iframes & it seems they are used to linking to another page whereas I need the map on each individual review page.

I just tried to install the iframe on the page & place the google map inside it but it did not display.

edit...........

Just looking at iframes............if I place an iframe on the page where do I place the map? Do I have to create a separate page for it?

I've never used iframes before & do not really understand how I am supposed to implement this.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge :oops:

Ok it is as easy as A, B, C simply add the extension to the page/postion that you want, open the extension properties set to what your require..Latitude, Longitude, Map HTMl etc etc, and since the extension is using a iframe it will call the map into the page you need it on, now when your ready to upload to your server you will have two html files one is the page that you have inserted the extension on this may be index.html and you will also have another html file this will be called (example) googlemap.html, or jimmyjazz1.html or what ever you gave it in Map HTML properties. Just to check that it was working I downloaded the page that you gave the url too, rebuilt it in WB added the extension and it working as it should I have also saved this as a WB project (wbs) and have uploaded for you to try out...I have also include the latest version of the extension....

Hi BaconFries,

Fantastic mate, you've nailed it!

Just loaded every map onto the live site & checked each one & they are all displaying their exact co-ordinates :D

There is one small issue though, when I click on any of the map icons I get this line above the address:

$heading$

I'm sure this is something I have overlooked but I cannot work out what, check it out on the map on the following link:

http://www.spy.my/penang/cheong-fatt-tze-mansion.html

I really appreciate the time you have put into implementing this alteration, but this is now a fantastic extension for anyone that wants to install many different maps on their website.

You've just helped me take one step closer to officially launching this site, but I still got some work to do (not related to maps). When ready I will announce it in the appropriate new site category on this forum & give you a special mention.

Cheers :)
