Custom Google Maps inside Feature


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello,

 

 

Im trying to solve, I'm sure what some of you will find to be a very simple problem.

 

This is my custom google maps :

 

http://www.elcrg.org/Test/Gmaps/index.html

 

When I add it inside a Feature, it seems to rid of the close X for the InfoWindow.

 

As seen here: http://www.elcrg.org/find-us/

 

Any help resolving this issue would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

HI,

 

Can you provide all the code you're using to add this map to your site please. Paste your code to our pastie service.

I can't even get the map to load on my test site. Where did you get the code from ?

 

As the code you have provided is just the page source for your index.html page you linked above.

Basically, the reason as to why this is working on the /index.html file is that its an html file. You're attempting to add this to Wordpress, so the instructions won't work as Wordpress doesn't use .html files.

 

I think the best course of action would be to either contact the site where you got the source code from and ask them for advice on how to implement this on Wordpress or try using this plugin. Please bear in mind that this plugin is untested.

No problem, happy to help. 

As that plugin is untested, I have resolved this topic but should you encounter any issues, reply here and we can remove the resolved prefix.

Hi Danny,

 

Unfortunatley the plug-in didn't work inside the feature. Any ideas ?

Into the content of the feature, not the html area.

If you're placing the shortcode into the feature content area of the slider it won't automatically popular the slider media area unfortunately. The text area just gets rendered into the excerpt, if you look at your excerpt you'll see there's an error message showing regarding the plugin - http://screencast.com/t/lCaQ3geqbvt9

 

Try adding your html to the media area when you set up the slider - http://screencast.com/t/IrDdVSquX
