Google Map BBCode Or Plugin?
« on: April 26, 2018, 08:23:15 AM »
Checked the mods and don't see anything. Is anybody using anything that automatically embeds a map URL inside a post?

Thanks!

THank you for the reply. Is that mod for both maps and video? It looks like it's a video embedder.

It does google maps, to some picture and audio sites as well a little bit of everything.

I’m having trouble getting the video embedder mod to work with Google Maps on an SMF 2.0.15 forum with no other mods - specifically this map link.

Wrap the google map embed code in html bbcode tags.

Wrap the google map embed code in html bbcode tags.

Unfortunately the following isn’t working (I have confirmed that ’html’ BBCode is enabled):

When you go to the map page, click on the "Share" icon, then click on the "Embed a map" link. Copy the iframe code. Delete everything you currently have in between the html bbcode tags and paste the iframe code. Then save. I have about 350 maps on my site. It definitely works.

In my case this is the best option for me, I am the only admin and also the only one who is responsible for listing the travel guides. So there is no need for anybody else to be posting the maps on my site. If they want a new one added they are instructed to contact me.
