Contacted developer for support, who requested access to the site to troubleshoot. He logged in and could not get it to work either.
Despite repeated emails for a status update, have heard nothing.
Very disappointed as this would appear to be a TREMENDOUS module if we can get it to work. Perhaps Google changed their API? Whatever, the developer has been a no show since soon after purchase.
And with a hack of the plugin's php file, you can custom set the width/height to match your content block's dimensions.
Now it's possible without any PHP hacks. Enjoy.
HOWEVER...the current PLUGIN for 1.5 will not install. There is a temporary "fix" that's been issued. But it is not working for all.
Developer promises a permanent fix in the "next few weeks."
So if you're on a deadline or time crunch, might want to look elsewhere until this gets resolved. Hopefully soon.
The fix has been applied to the currently available downloads.
