    I received a lot of good help on a post I made about making a custom google map. I am now looking to insert it in a wordpress page. You can view the map at http://www.kolea.com/kolea/ and I would like to insert it on the bottom of http://www.kolea.com/about/

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    (?) Maybe you already know this because it's very basic but here are the options I know.

    1. Click the HTML tab when you edit the wordpress page. Paste the same HTML there as you used for the other page with the map.
    2. Create an iframe showing the other page. Paste this into the wordpress page using the HTML tab.
    3. I haven't done google map inserts but just did my first map insert for a friend using mapquest. Go here: http://brattleborobuffet.com/location -> Click "view larger map" -> To the upper right find a "link/embed" button -> "Copy and paste this HTML to your web page".

    To the left you will see the address of this restaurant. If you just put in the address of your hotel, you can instantly generate an HTML code for your hotel location.

    I would assume Google has the same thing as mapquest. The Mapquest is not customized and not sure you can. But you can just put in a street adress and get a map and HTML code. And Mapquest has a "my maps" link where you can join and "Personalize. Save. Share." Not sure what this means but maybe if you sign up, this allows you to create custom maps and get HTML for them.

    4. Or if you can find a government website map, no copyright, you can do a "screen print" or download it, edit it and paste the resulting image into your page.

    In summary, I know the HTML provided by Mapquest works as an insert into a wordpress page using the HTML tab. This is sufficient to give people directions to your hotel and using CSS you can make it bigger or smaller. When people click "view larger image" they might see advertisements for other hotels. But Mapquest provides a "+/-" resizing button so if you make the window a good size, I doubt many people will click "view larger image." Here is the HTML code mapquest gave me, plus the CSS added to adjust the size, to give you an idea. So maybe Google has something better but if not, perhaps Mapquest is good enough for your purpose.

    Code:
    <iframe style="height: 400px; width: 600px;" src="http://www.mapquest.com/embed?hk=vPEopl" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" width="320" height="240"></iframe>

    Thanks for the input, but the guy that helped me make the map did it a different way than is regular google maps, which allowed us to put links on there and I do not think that is making it as easy.
