GoogleMaps functionality

Postby AUbicycles » Wed Mar 06, 2013 9:30 pm

When you post there are a row of grey buttons... these help make it easier to embed and display specific content.
A new option of including GoogleMaps was requested - simply add the URL of the googlemap location inside the tag.

Here is what it can look like, the google URL defines options, so it can be a simple googlemap through to a map with a route like this one.



And here is the code

Code: Select all
[googlemap]https://maps.google.com.au/maps?saddr=Chait%C3%A9n,+Chile&daddr=Coyhaique,+Chile+to:Caleta+Yungay,+Caleta+Tortel,+Chile&hl=en&ie=UTF8&sll=-46.141783,-71.520996&sspn=6.082771,13.85376&geocode=FaQkcf0dZG6q-yl1Xkz1pjgfljHEXdbWoOM1Lg%3BFTSpSP0dE120-ym3bGB6cNnyvTGBpS8FjZGFRQ%3BFYKRJP0ds-Kg-ynBwxtKDu-WvTH2_CZCI1sUwg&mra=ls&t=p&z=7[/googlemap]

Made my first post with the new tags, and they work very well.

Many thanks for implementing that feature Chris.

I wish Tapatalk would give a message or empty box for unimplemented tags. It's no problem to use the quote or copy options to view source / cut-n-paste (or open post in browser option) but you need to know there's missing content in the first place.

I was hoping it would also work to embed street view images - well it works but it is all a bit fuzzy
streetview

Ah, now I see what you mean - just looked on tapatalk & the text is there but no pictures, links or any indication of missing content.

A problem with Apps as a rule, FB ... they only offer a subset of what the 'real' website does.
