Interactive Google Maps In Post
Mod Version: 1.00, by benstillman (Coder) benstillman is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (35 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 223
Released: 11 Feb 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported  

No Google Maps API key, no mod install, no template edits, etc. This is based off YBMF's mod for 4.0, but a bit easier for the end user. Instead of the user having to input the full Google Maps link, just the address, name of business, etc is acceptable.

Admin CP --> Custom BB Codes --> Add New BB Code

</tr>
</table>
</div>

As it happens, Google Maps is still showing old road names around here. Can this be made to work with Mapquest or Bing/explore?

Very nice mod! Nominated and installed.

I don't suppose there is a way to get this to show up in the "Visitors Message" reply in the User Profile area?

Thanks in advance.

The problem is that neither Bing nor Mapquest seems to want to take a simple URL like Google maps will, so I've had no luck with them.

Installed and working great in 3.8.4 PL2. I must say your implementation adds far more security then the original hack because it forces the iframe to google instead of getting it passed from the user.
