I gotta admit this is a very handy feature! Now if only I did not have to enable the user options every time I inserted the map. Besides that, it works great.

Great plugin, works perfectly on Joomla 1.6. Very flexible and powerful.

Thanks for sharing it.

Well done. I was so happy to find this gem and can see using it in many places. Keep up the good work. Hopefully there will be a 1.6 version soon. Thanks again for sharing.

Good plugin

This seem to be a very good plug-in, I installed it and added a map to my page within about 2 minutes... thanks for your hard work and sharing this for free!!!

However if I add 2 maps the second map is displayed in position one and position 2 just displays "Google map"

Is this plug-in incapable of showing multiple maps?

Great idea, but it is not working with my JCE editor. Only text Google Maps was inserted.. No picture, no map.. :-(

Owner's reply: Map is viewable in the front end only.
Aslo there are some settings for JCE that allow the plugin to work. PLease see the help file.

love it

I think this was great and super fast. finally one that actually works from the start. thank you for sharing. one question though- I am using No Editor so how would i add text in the article on the right of the map ?

It would be great...

...but it doesn't work for me. The editor button seems to work properly, but after i insert the map into the article, only a "Google Map" text appears in the editor. After i save the article, and view the page, only a text like this appears on the page:

"Google Map

function initializeGoogleMap(){ if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) { var gmap = document.getElementById('gmap'); var map = new GMap( gmap, { mapTypes: G_DEFAULT_MAP_TYPES, size: new GSize(400, 300) } ); map.setCenter( new GLatLng( 46.86770273172814, 18.10546875), 7); map.enableDragging(); map.disableScrollWheelZoom(); var control; } } GEvent.addDomListener(window, 'load', initializeGoogleMap); GEvent.addDomListener(window, 'unload', GUnload); "

System: clear Joomla 1.5.10 stable ver., wampserver

Owner's reply: Please setup the article and content editor parameters correctly or the insert javascript will be black listed from the saved article.

Good idea

Posted on 10 March 2009

the fact that it is an editor botton make this a lot easier. I have tried plugins for google maps but this one is the most flexable and easy to use. It is a great idea. If you need maps on your site give it a try.

I initially had some problems with the plugin, but with the prompt help extended by the developer, it was solve and the plugin just worked as it says. The google map appeared on the joomla articles like a breeze.I would recommend this for people like me who are not that good at programming.Thank you for your help.

KBS Tweet is a Joomla plug-in that allows users to Tweet about content articles. The Tweet button can simply be placed before or after the content. This simple plug-in is easy to install and configure. One of the features is the use of the Bitly URL shortening service; therefore, the user has the ability to write more text in their Tweet about an article posted on a Joomla site. The shortened URLs are cached reducing the overall Bitly service calls. The plug-in parameters allow other settings, such as formatted text used in the Tweet, thereby allowing an article name to be inserted into the Tweet. One can also set a suggested follower in the Tweet as well as related followers after the Tweet. The default language can be set either to English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Russian or Turkish.
