Embed Google Maps
« on: November 08, 2012, 07:24:08 pm »
Hi,


As our forum shares walking routes etc one of our members suggested it would be good to have a map with the plotted suggested walks. I made a basic one on Google maps ([size=78%]http://maps.google.co.uk/help/maps/getmaps/plot-multi.html[/size]) And it generated the following HTML code:


Code: [Select]
<iframe width="300" height="300" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msa=0&amp;msid=211755346468661365283.0004cdffe0ba88ddb06b1&amp;hl=en&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;t=h&amp;vpsrc=1&amp;ll=53.547012,-3.144096&amp;spn=3.091205,2.67957&amp;output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href="https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msa=0&amp;msid=211755346468661365283.0004cdffe0ba88ddb06b1&amp;hl=en&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;t=h&amp;vpsrc=1&amp;ll=53.547012,-3.144096&amp;spn=3.091205,2.67957&amp;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>


And so I thought, as I did before, that I could paste it into a HTML ezBlock - I did so, clicked Save, and when I went to check it was there, it wasn't... instead was the text "Click here to visit the Map". I went to look at the code and it had become the following:


Code: [Select]
<p><br /><small>View <a style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left" href="https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msa=0&amp;msid=211755346468661365283.0004cdffe0ba88ddb06b1&amp;hl=en&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;t=h&amp;ll=53.547012,-3.144096&amp;spn=3.091205,2.67957&amp;source=embed">CacheWalker Map </a> in a larger map</small></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>



How do I successfully embed the map code into the ezBlock? I really, really hope this doesn't mean we can't include the map? If not, is there another way to embed it, other than ezBlocks?  ???


Please help, and thanks in advance  :)
