Insert a google map
Inserting a google map is quite easy, but there is some long code involved. You have to use HTML code (not BBCodes), so HTML has to be activated in your posts (normally, this is the default option).
Of course, you have to change all following information for each spot, and repeat those lines for every spot you want to insert on the map :
- GOOGLE_URL1 : Insert here the complete URL adress obtained from maps.google.com, after clicking on "Link to this page"; this address starts with "http://maps.google.com/..........."
- SYMBOL : included in the marker on the map, it can be a number or a letter, or nothing
- COLOR : color of that marker (ORANGE, PURPLE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, RED, AQUA, WHITE ou GRAY)
- TITLE : Title of the point, which is displayed when clicked on the marker
You can now use a large number of icons (coming from Google's MyMap) on the maps of our forum, too! Using them is very easy.
There is a list of those new icons in the table at the end of this post. The name is written under each icon. Just use this exact name (do not add a capital letter, nor add an extension) like in the following code :
