To embed a map in an article use the following code:

{googlemap}address|version:classic|zoom:10{/googlemap}
{googlemap}address|zoom:10|lang:it{/googlemap}
{googlemap}address|width:200|height:200|border:1{/googlemap}
{googlemap}address|width:200|height:200|link:yes|linklabel:Label{/googlemap}
{google
map}address|link:yes{/googlemap}
{google
map}address|type:satellite{/googlemap}
{google
map}address|showinfo:no{/googlemap}
{googlemap}address|https:yes{/googlemap}
*{google_map}latitude,longitude{/google_map}

  • latitude,longitude = coordinates in decimal degrees

Example 1

Replace the "address" string with the address which location you want to show on the map.

{googlemap}Sunset Boulevard West Hollywood{/googlemap}

Example 2

Replace the "latitude" and "longitude" strings with the coordinates which location you want to show on the map. The coordinates must be expressed as decimal degrees.

{googlemap}60.1705,24.9384{/googlemap}


The Embed Google Maps plug in works wonderfully. I started out with some problems and received excellent -- actually outstanding -- customer support. I'd recommend it to anyone. [For some installations you may need php 5.4 or better. My problems stemmed from php 5.2]


Nice and simple

Very nice and simple extension, easy to set up and use.

Would be nice to grab coords from External Reference article param.


Just fantastic

Great job, awesome job, fantastic, incredible - you made my day!



Anyone wondering if this review is helpful or not - look no further than this plugin for your Google map needs. The others I tried are so useless, one almost wiped out my files - possible malicious code I will investigate - files actually got deleted.



This plug in installed fine and just performs!


GREAT PLUGIN

I often work with joomla, and this is great plugin to embed maps on a site.

It could be even better if it had an option to change marker type.



P.S. for all the users that have a problem and got all maps on their site - solution is very simple - just delete the codes that you don't need, and leave the one that satisfy you.

The installation was very easy.

I have added maps to several of my client's sites with no problems. I highly recommend this.


Easy to install and embed with simple customization code. Only takes a few minutes to setup!


Configuration


Posted on 15 May 2014

The plugin is good and simple to install but I couldn't properly configure it, on the site it displayed many map boxes and just one showed the address I wanted, maybe more explanation would help for beginner users like myself.


Awesome!


Posted on 29 March 2014

Terrific plug-in, worked like a charm right out of the box.



Congratulation to the developer!


Piece of cake


Posted on 25 February 2014

Just install and add the correct params to the article. Hardest bit was getting accurate map ref's as postcode was incorrect. Couldn't get the label param to work but that is minor for me.


It can't get any better and easier than this plugin. It just works, simple as that.
