Introduction

Street Maps, Map Directions, Maps & Weather, Maps & Locations

Plugin for displaying one or more Google Maps within content-items, modules or components of Joomla 1.5.x (native), 2.5.x and 3.x.

  • Get this

A new release 3.2 of the Joomla plugin Google Maps is available that restores the kml proxy feature in a secure way that was removed in the previous version because of security risks. Also it solves some problems for responsive templates.
The new version has the following new features:

  • Added language possibilities for GeoXML and gotoaddress form
  • Open infowindow in KML by parameter (GeoXML)

Solves the following errors:

  • New authorisation for Twitter
  • Security risks in kml proxy
  • Problem of standalone Joomla application for kml proxy, twitter and css settings
  • Problem with clouds
  • Standard use Google Maps API version stable instead of development
  • Support for language with multiple dialects (Portugese/Chinese)
  • Problem with zoom and center in lightbox
  • Solves problems with responsive templates

This version will automatically update in 2.5 and 3.x.
If you want to upgrade from version 2.x then:
1. Install the new version 3.1. This is a new plugin, it does not replace the version 2.x plugin!
2. Do not open the plugin configuration! First you need to enable the new system plugin called "System - Google Map" in the list of plugins by clicking the red dot in the status column. This is the only way to copy all your parameters from the old plugin to the new one!
3. After enabling the plugin in the correct way (point 2) you can check if the settings of the old plugin are copied correctly by opening the new plugin configuration settings.
4. After that you can disable the old system plugin called "Google Map"

Language support available for all the parameters: English, French, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
Please send me language files so I can add them to the plugin. Goto my website to contact me.

Look at the demo site first for documentation. If you've problems please do the checklist on the site: http://tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/checklist-placing-plugin-in-article.html
