Would be very nice to add GoogleStreetView either as part of GoogleMap or as separate submodule (example)

Maybe I'll do it when I'll have more time somewhere next week (no promise :) )
Meanwhile. attached updated version of the embedded module. The syntax changed to allow better parsing support.
It now support multiple commands in one embed and support nesting brackets. (look and the README for more details).

It also have updated Emdedded submodule, with new method InsertJavaScript($jacascript). This execute the given java script from within page's content without modifying the page itself.
@Victor, Maybe you can use this to use the GoogleStreetView.

Great module.
To be usable for SS 2.4 you'd change code in /code/ManagedWidgetsAreaHolder.php in method requireDefaultRecords()


Database::alteration_message('Default Widgets manager created', 'created');


DB::alteration_message('Default Widgets manager created', 'created');

Just to make sure,
On the Admin side -
did you modify / create widget area on the "Widgets Manager" main tab? if so, on the page you want to show it, under the "Conent/Managed Widgets" tab - make sure the type is "Managed" and select under the "Managed Widgets" pull-down the one you need. 

Can somebody explain to me the above..
Using ss 2.4, I installed widgetsManager v 0.2. Now, and I don't have an option to create a widget in the "Widgets Manager" menu tab., nor a tab called "Content/Managed Widgets", I have only one tab called Widgets Manager..!

thanks in advance

Hi everyone,
Long time without updates.... I didn't have much time since my child birth... :)

I updated the WidgetsManager to work with SS 2.4.1 (@Pike Thanks for the tip). This also fix the scrollbar issue.

@sajok, the "Widgets Manager" menu tab is the one that on the top menu bar (near the Security, Help, etc...)
The "Content/Managed Widgets" tab is for each page. when you select a page there are tabs of Content, Behavior, etc... Under the content tab you will find sub-tabs (Main, Metadata, and more) one of them is the "Managed Widgets".
Select the "Widgets Manager" you can create new Managed Widgets area holder by clicking the button, or select one by searching (searching with empty field will return all available holders.

thank you so much for the update and explanation.. I didn't notice the upper tabs when I first tested this widget ;).. I was trying to add Calendar widget in frontpage but version 0.02 didn't work for me using ss 2.4.1. I'll try again with this update..
I have one question, should I upload this to override the old version or should I first remove old folder and install the new one?

@sajok both ways should work
