How to add a color tint to Google maps

Recommended Posts




Has anyone tried to do a tint of the google maps in DMS2 yet?




I want to either remove the color (saturation -100) or make the map a tint.

I don't see an option to do it in the DMS google maps tool so thought i would ask how it can be done.


Thank you.

You can most likely do this easily with CSS. Have you tried that yet? 


Do you have a page with the Google Map added? 

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.

quintinm You can grayscale Google maps by using the CSS3 grayscale filter effect:


#/*--------------insert map section id here!!!!-------------------*/ { 

  -webkit-filter: grayscale(100%);
  -moz-filter: grayscale(100%);
  -ms-filter: grayscale(100%);
  -o-filter: grayscale(100%);
  filter: grayscale(100%);
  filter: url(grayscale.svg); /* Firefox 4+ */
  filter: gray; /* IE 6-9 */
Its a simple solution but it might be what you are looking for!

quintinm - This kind of customization is beyond what we can provide. You have linked to a guide telling you how to achieve this kind of tint on your maps, so the best course of action is follow the instructions from that guide.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
