View Full Version : Google Map Addon - Getting fancy!
05-14-2007, 12:38 AM
I installed the google map addon on my pixelpost 1.6 and it works great.
But instead of the "View Google map" link (words being the link), I would like to use a button. I tried to look around in the files but I really don't know how to modify a TAG.
Could someone give me a hand on that one?

If you open up the addon php file, and do a search for the text "Google Map", you will find the line. You can replace that text with whatever you wish.

Jay, you're wrong :P
Please read the documentation provided with the googlemap addon. That text is set in the language file and you can edit it to be a button.

You mean edit it in the language file???
If this is it... i'll give it a try and let you know!

yeah, well... read the documentation, it is quite clear I think (although I written that part myself :p)

Here is what I did to replace the text "View Google Map" with a button in the language file. I tried many combination but I get a white page so I guess I 'm doing something wrong.
Here is my code:
$lang_view_on_map = <img src=' http://www.pixel-photo.net/pod/templates/visible/google_map_button.gif' alt='Google Map' title='Google Map'/>;
Can you give me a hand on that?

I kept on working on it and it works!
here is my code line:
$lang_view_on_map = "<img src=' http://www.pixel-photo.net/pod/templates/visible/google_map_button.gif' alt='Google Map' title='Google Map'/>";

I installed the Google Map addon on my not-yet finished blog and I acquired the API keys from Google.
If I change blog domain /I will have to acquire new APIs/, will the images geodata be lost?

Nope, the geodata is independent of the API keys and is stored in your Pixelpost database.
