Google Maps

version 1.0

This plug-in offers a quick and easy way to add Google Maps to your Pulse pages.


Installing the plug-in

Download the plug-in and FTP the googlemaps.php file into the inc/tags directory in your Pulse install.

Using the plug-in

To add a Google Map to your Pulse blog, block or page use the following Pulse tag where you want the map to appear;

{{googlemaps:address=brooklyn children's museum-new york-usa}}

The only required value in the tag is the address (or location) to center the map on;
address=new york-usa

You can also optionally add in width and height values to specify a fixed or percentage size for the map as well as zoom for the zoom level;

{{googlemaps:address=brooklyn children's museum-new york-usa,width=600,height=300,zoom=12}}

Please note: You can't (currently) use commas in the map address as the plug-in uses these to split the various options out of the Pulse tag. Until this issue can be resolved use regular dashes (-) in place of the commas when specifying the address.
