    Google Maps: Repositioning of info bubble or changing the size of the map within CMS

    Hi, I'm new here and also have next to nil experience in website design/html/etc...BUT i'm helping out with the updating of the company's website.

    I need to know if it is possible to adjust the info bubble shown on google map from CMS? Or the width/height of the google map window? The reason: The location indicator will always be centralized within the google map and the info bubble always appear at the top. I would like to have the complete address/info shown on the screen without visitors having to zoom in or move the cursor around to view the full bubble. Currently, the info bubble is always cut off at the top due to the size of the google map frame.

    Is this something that can only be done by the web host or there's a way to do it on our own?

    Thanks in advance.

    Which CMS are you using? Can you post a link so we can see the code? That way we'll be better able to help.

    You resize the Google map by resizing the container you put it in. Here's a simple CSS example:
    div#google-map {width:  400px;  height:  400px;}
    That will give you a 400px x 400px Google map. Adjust as needed, but bear in mind that some of your visitors will be on phones and therefore the map may only fit in a 480 x 320 pixel or 320 x 480 pixel spot.

    There is a way to style the info bubble using CSS, but I haven't done that in a couple of years.
