  • I've written a custom view for the text module which uses the gmaps.js script Is this what you're looking for?

    I've also created a view configuration which allows me to enter the lat/long, zoom, and a lat/long for the marker.

    If you email me @, I'll send you the view and the view config file.

  • Hey, do you have this custom view working for the latest Exp? I just ran into problems because jquery is referenced LATER, only in the end of the page code and thus the map doesn't work at all.
    I am using the code like

    < script src="js/jquery.gmap.js">< / script>
    < script type="text/javascript" src="">< / script>

    < ! -- MAP -- >

    < script type="text/javascript">
    $("#map").gMap({ controls: false,
    scrollwheel: false,
    draggable: true,
    markers: [{ latitude: 47.174589,
    longitude: 8.513854,
    icon: { image: "img/pin.png",
    iconsize: [32, 47],
    iconanchor: [32,47],
    infowindowanchor: [12, 0] } }
    icon: { image: "img/pin.png",
    iconsize: [26, 46],
    iconanchor: [12, 46],
    infowindowanchor: [12, 0] },
    latitude: 47.174589,
    longitude: 8.513854,
    zoom: 9, });
    </ script>

  • I have several variations fact in the pre-release for 2.3.2 ('develop' branch of our github repo, planned to be out by Christmas), we have a new {google_map} smarty function to embed a map...however, I digress. You should be able to 'redeem' the above code by changing the opening/ending script tags with a smarty script block like this

    {script unique=gmaps jquery=1}
    zoon: 9,}),

    This will cause your code to be output at the bottom of the page AFTER jquery is loaded.

  • Sorry for reviving this old topic. How do I go about embedding the map with the {google_map} smarty function? Is it integrated into a module already or do I have to do more to make this work?
  • {google_map unique="mymap" address="123 Main St, Lanesville, IN 41772"}
    also accepts a 'height' param integer, or defaults to 190px.  'address' could also be an 'address' object id.
