I might have a question on embedding maps

Postby Jelf » Mon Jan 24, 2011 4:14 am

I'm trying to figure out how to embed a live Google API map in my post. Typically I would do that with an iframe. However, when I click 'Preview' my map does not render in the preview pane. Therefore I am making this post. If my map actually renders, great. If my map does not render then hopefully my iframe code will appear in my post and someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.

This worked just fine for me. :? Strange, any it does not work on pages? I thought I've seen you get it to work on sp here before?

I think my question for the elfs is this:

Can I somehow use iframe tags to embed a Gmap4 map in a forum post, or are iframe tags only allowed if I am making a "page".
