Google Maps by Reumer Popular Plugin

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.

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:

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.

{mosmap width='500'|height='400'|lat='52.052312'|lon='4.447141'| zoom='3'|text='svDWO'}
(when editing article goto html view to remove returns or < br /> when you copy this example)

I don't often write reviews. This is my favorite plugin yet. It is by far the most versatile, attractive, and well administrated. Kudos Kiddo. Keep up the great work! I was amazed at the quality and frequent help I received. Can't thank you enough.

After stumbling here there, finally I can set a nice map on my website!

Just a little tips for newbies (like me:)), if google map doesn't show the correct red point mark, change the latitude and longitude number. In the US, going up (north) means bigger latitude, going right (east) means smaller longitude (with negative number, smaller=bigger:)).

This plugin is excellent. Super customisable and very professional. Don't be fooled when you see the {code}, it's pretty simple to nut it out, and the documentation resources are short and sweet, making utilising this little beauty quick and easy.

Support is FIVE STAR as well. I had troubles with cross browser compatibility; Firefox 3.5.X worked by IE7, IE8 and Safari on PC and Mac didn't. So after looking through the Checklist at and not finding the right solution (my Javascript knowledge is pretty minimal) I shot an email to Mike in the Nederlands (I'm in Australia), and overnight he sent me the solution.

If you're having trouble with cross-browser/platform compatibility like I was, my solution was to switch the "Load with Mootools?" parameter from Mootools to Timeinterval. Hope this helps some of you.

Again, thanks Mike! This plugin will be a regular addition to our websites! Highly recommend this bad boy!

I had used the extension in several websites always without any problems. However a few days ago I had an issue with one of the joomla templates, I couldn't see the markers and I had no idea what was the problem. Mike answered my request and solved the problem in no time. Great extension and great support!

Be certain to read the checklist! There are subtle requirements that can trap you. Once you understand them and/or receive VERY FAST RESPONSES from Mike, you will be up and running in no time. There are many more options than I need, but it's nice to know they are there and supported just in case my requirements change. Great plugin.

Well based documentation, instant support, piece of cake to install. I am very satisfied by the communication of the developer. In the beginning I had some kind of problem (my mistake) and he responded immediately. Thanks !

Very good plugin.
There's no support for Google local business center and no support for Company ID parameter (cid=...)
Owner's reply

Thanks for the vote and review. In the google maps api version 2 there is no support for the company ID so it can't be integrated in the plugin.
If google adds this support to there API v2 then it will be added to the plugin too.
If anyone has an idea on how to integrate it, please let me know.

I installed this plugin sometime ago, and forgot to review it. (Sorry Mike) At the time I had numerous problems, all down to my lack of knowledge and stupidity. Mike always answered support questions superfast, and even took the time to go into the backend of my site to get things as I wanted. I recently upgraded to Joomla 1.5.14 and wondered why my maps wasnt working. Within an hour Mike had emailed me back and pointed out where I had gone wrong. (A simple case of not following instructions!) This is a superb plugin, and the support is second to none. If you are like me, we use these free extensions, and dont always donate to the programmers.
This guy deserves all the success he gets. And I just donated again. If you need a google map plugin THIS IS THE KIDDIE !!
Thanks Mike. A Real Extension star.
