Ah - great to hear. After the latest version I haven't really looked at it anymore (I moved on to other things). However, if you find issues or have feature requests, please feel free to post them here and I'll develop it further.

Very nice and easy :-)

I have one question: Is it possible to add more than one mark in the same map?
if yes, how?
if now, it would be nice if someone could give me a tips or solution how to make it possible.

Hi Tomase,

I have been thinking about the ability to add more than one point. It is however, due to the way it has been coded, not very easy to do. I will have to change the format in which the map markers are being stored in the map DIV so it excepts an array of points instead of just one point. The back-end (TinyMCE) side of things will also need quite some adapting.

It does seem worthwhile though to implement so I'll see If I have some time coming week to put that in. If someone else wants to to have a go, please do so and share the upgrade.

Best regards,

Hi MikeOne,

I created a module that allow you to call php function from the content, and as a example I put Google Map. It allow you to add as many maps as you like in a page and add as many markers for each map.
To add map on the admin's page content it need to write $Embed(GoogleMap,-28.643387,153.612224,8) with the relevant details of course.
It don't work with the TinyMCE and you dont see the div at the editor (and also I'm not UI guy so make it wotk will take me a lot of time).

Maybe we can join forces and make it work better. multiple maps with multiple markers, polygons, etc.. (with visual editing of course).

Hey Mike,
I am trying to make this work. I downloaded your original zip before I noticed your second version. The first seemed to install correctly but when I inserted a map it would only display a gray square. So I came back to the forum and realized that you had another version. I downloaded it and tried to place the folders in the correct place on my local machine. when i did this i received an error saying that the system cannot find the path specified. Have any idea what I am doing wrong?
