Firstly thanks to the developers - great plugin. It is totally up to date using the Google Maps v3 API, and it was a snap to produce the map I wanted with the right zoom level, a marker and an info window. Once you install the plugin and enable it, the button comes available with your editor in the article itself. It allowed me to put in the zoom/pan controls (there are more controls), and I could have added driving directions but I didn't need them. I had a little trouble getting the right width and height, but was able to change that easily in the html source code after I embedded it. I'm very happy with it, saved me loads of time.

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.

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.. :-(

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.

...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

Please setup the article and content editor parameters correctly or the insert javascript will be black listed from the saved article.

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.
