No registration required at www.revolvermaps.com, just change the parameters in your Joomla admin panel or visit http://revolvermaps.com/?target=setup and copy & paste the generated code they give you in the Joomla admin panel parameter.
Important Note: The ID it installs with is for my demo site. If you want to reset the visitor count and associate it with just your site, you'll need to visit www.revolvermaps.com and take your ID from the script code:
<param name="i" value="3sv7MUqXeMI" />
The Unique ID code would be "3sv7MUqXeMI" (without the double-quotes)

This was pretty simple to install and it took just a minute or two to get the "code" for my map.
I must confess I tried this several months ago and I didn't like it--- I never paid attention to the importance of changing the "code". Now it works great (and correctly). Thanks for the Module
If the override is to display the contents directly, then there's a problem with it. (I attempted to override using code that displays a 2D map)
but all in all, it's a great effort! Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the vote strategist. I realized v1.1 didn't use this parameter and have fixed this with v1.2. v1.1 was originally just jokingly submitted for a friend who asked if it could be done. In v1.2, the module class suffix applies to the DIV layer of the module. If it is blank then the module ignores it.
One other issue, the display, using FireFox and a PC, is cut off at the bottom. This is not seen with my Mac using FireFox, too.
Thanks for the vote!
Unfortunately I've been unable to recreate the border issue. Some parameters were not properly registering which I've fixed in v1.2. This may help. Another parameter I've added lets you switch between Flash (swf) and Java (applet) to see if this resolves the issue. I've tried adding the alignment parameter which will work for "left" and "right" (using float) but "center" depends on the container the module it is in.
Only one small gripe… when used in some Internet explorer sessions there is a large frame of white showing at the bottom and to the right of the flash image. This varies depending on size you specify. You would not notice this with a white page background only with dark backgrounds. The help on the site identifies it as a zoom setting problem on some browsers. Would be even better if you could workaround/remove this bug in some way?
Thanks for the vote Bighare! :c)
I've added some parameters such as switching between Java / Flash and only allowing a selection of the width x height set by www.revolvermaps.com. You can still download v1.1 if you don't want that restriction.
Super little Module - EXCELLENT - Loaded First Time!
I would even donate to this module if it could do a bit more: Would be excellent if it could link to Users in the website from Joomlas Admin section showing where your friends were and not just map links.... thanks for module.
