A SECURITY RELEASE 3.1 of plugin Google Maps is released and this must be applied to your Joomla installation.
Also a (security) release 2.20 for all websites that still use Google Maps API version 2 and Google's geocoding version 2.
Because Google Maps API version 2 is deprecated from November, please upgrade to the latest version 3.1, version 2.x of the plugin is deprecated too!
The proxy solution (plugin_googlemap3_proxy.php) for kml files had the following vulnerabilities: Denial of Service, XML Injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Full path disclosure vulnerabilities.
In this version the proxy solution is not possible anymore. I am working on a new secure solution.
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"
This is a version that only support google maps api version 3! Version 2 is deprecated from November 2013 so we need to migrate.
Also added language support 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
If this doesn't help or you have questions or new wishes please fill in the form on my website with an url that shows the problem and version of the plugin and Joomla.
(when editing article goto html view to remove returns or < br /> when you copy this example)
Thanks again Mike for all your help.
If anybody use Rockettheme template and you have caching and gzipping ON in its setting (Rockettheme template settings), you must switch it OFF or switch the plugin settings to timeinterval. But it is a problem of Rockettheme. Good coder could probably fix the problem, but I am not a coder.
Some problems with the encoding (german umlauts in the tooltips) inside the joomla database, the geoxml renderer, the downloadable kml file - but everything is fine now !
...just waiting for the '-Problem to be solved with Joomla ;)
Really - there is no need to keep looking. I would encourage you to support developers as this, for their time and energy. Awesome job - Thanks Again!
Worked 100% until last month when I had to update to last version.
It stopped to show the map. Now it works on Firefox and Internet Explorer, but does not work on Opera and Google Chrome.
Please contact me on my website http://tech.reumer.net and you will get support.
Did you do the checklist on my website?
There isn't a better Google maps plug in for Joomla.
