This site comes with the facility that allows you to build a dynamic map, drawing shapes, dropping points/markers onto it, which in turns creates a lump of code which you can copy and paste onto your pages.
1.1 Log into the site
1.2 Create a forum, or blog page
1.3. Under the main text box, it says input type, click it and you will see a link that says create map macro
(alternatively - click this link) http://mytunstall.co.uk/map/macro
1.3.1 You will need to open this link in a separate tab to your article your writing
1.4. In the macro builder page, drag the map, zooming in and out until you have the boundaries within the screen width.
1.5. Once the map is ok, just beneath the map you will see a drop down that says Click Map, and it has a list of 5 things.
1.5.1 Choose filled Polygon
1.5.2 The first few times you will want to experiment, once you've done experimenting, refresh the browser window ( CTRL f5) keys
1.6. To draw the points on your map, by clicking once to place a point, move to the next position to draw another point, until you have finished your map.
1.7. To delete a point click the square anchor that sits around it.
What else can I do?
2.1 You can add points onto the map
2.2 In the click Map Drop Down, choose points
2.3 Then under markers, choose a marker, again you may want to experiment with these
2.4 To add a point onto the map, click the map once
2.5 to remove a marker, click it once
That's all well and good but how do I get this map onto my page?
3.1 If you scroll towards the bottom of the page (in the white area) you will see a box called Macro Text and inside is a lump of gibberish code to do with the map.
3.2 Click the box and press CTRL A to highlight the contents of the box
3.3 press CTRL C to copy the contents of your box
3.4 back on your blog/forum page, type a couple of paragraphs and press enter once or twice then press CTRL V to paste the google maps code into the blog entry. Then again, press enter a few times beneath it and you can resume typing again.
Then save your page to see the working (with luck) results - Images coming soon
There is also an alternative way in which you can use google maps to create your own map, and use the embed code to place onto your pages, but that is for another day.
