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.

This is an excellent component. I'm completely satisfied with it.

I put it in one "custom" module and it didn't show up at first. I sent an e-mail to the developer and Mike contacted me within 24 hours, checked my site and told me exactly what to do to fix the problem. The problem was already in the "checklist" but I had overlooked it. Thanks Mike.

I started by copying in the sample code in the listing in to a Contact. Use the hack instructions at

Then, all you have to do is put your API key into the Plugin, and it should work, you'll have a map of Europe.

From there on, in 1.5, you can just remove all the parameters, and configure it from the back end without hacking code.

Very cool. Must have, I think...

To start with the author's support of this product is better than any commercial Joomla add-on I've used.

The plug-in is easy to use, flexible and has a huge variety of options. For once I'm not waiting on some functionality to be implemented for the the add-on to be useful.

I had a couple of issues getting it running, and I was able to solve one quickly with the online FAQ, and when I couldn't fix the other issue, I wrote for support and heard back within the hour. My problem was quickly resolved and everything is working great.

Thanks for the great plug-in Mike! I had no hesitation about making a donation for this one.

This is absolutely THE best Google maps plug-in and I have tried or used all of them over the past year. I will be going back and retrofitting all my previous map implementations. In addition, Mike provides exceptional support and is always very helpful.

As a Geographical Information Systems tech specializing in geospatial content; this plug-in is rated the absolute highest of all the plug-in I use. Not only is the plug-in brilliant but for me, what makes a program rate high in my book - is support. I contacted Mike on problems related specifically to my site and he kindly and patiently worked with me to get everything resolved. Hats off! Donate and support this plug-in as future versions are sure to shine!

Not only is this the best joomla plugin for google maps out there, the developer, Mike, is one heck of a guy, he answered my every question with light speed response, I thought the wait would be unbearable!

And he does this for free mostly! There are companies out there that CHARGE you every month and do not give as good a service!

Get it, Use it, tweak it, love it and DONATE to it!
