Here's a screencast video showing the issue: http://screencast.com/t/Ezppe19kTI7u

shortcode is

[googlemap width="100%" height="300" address="2215 E 66th Place, Tulsa, OK 74136"][/CODE]

Why is the map marker not centered in the viewable area?

Thank you.

After testing thoroughly, it seems to "start" the map at tab 1; therefore, since I put the map tab as tab 4, it's far to the right of the map pin. If I put the map as tab 1, map displays as desired. Any ideas for including map within tabs and not as tab 1? Thank you, @simon or anyone else.

I have the same problem when using the map shortcode in tabs (using tabs of the event section). It works fine outside the tabs. However, I would like to have a tab for the location of the event  :-)

 

Further. It seems the google maps javascript files are loaded on every page. Would be nice if they are only included on the page where the map shortcode is placed. 

 

Thanks.

Hi jbrouwer 

 

Could you crete your own topic for this and we can look into any issue you have with Map Shortcodes. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

The map shortcode will NOT work in a tab, google draws the map markers on the screen position where the map is, it has no idea what a tab is or does, and does not know to move the markers.

There are some 'hacks' to get the new v3 maps to work in a bootstrap tab but it isnt pretty.

That's too bad. I will use it outside the tabs than.

 

Sorry, the googlemaps js files were from a plugin (buddystream)

 

Thanks
