Can we use 'Snazzy' Google maps?

Post by Nicky » Thu Aug 20, 2020 1:30 pm

Nice website to create google maps in any color to fit your design.

I have an API key available.

Is it possible to insert this script in a cmsimple webpage?

Example:

Very quick and not tested:
1. create a file e.g. userfiles/map-script.htm
2. copy/insert the generated code in this file.
3. on your webpage create a page e.g. Map with an IFRAME
4. define the source for the IFRAME e.g.

Code: Select all

<iframe src="userfiles/map-script.htm"...><iframe>
The IFRAME may be styled by its own class or ID in your stylesheet.css.

It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

Remotecontent_XH could be useful here.

From what I can tell, this is just about some fancy styling of Google maps. IIRC, there are Google maps plugins available for CMSimple_XH, so probably you could use that.

Of course, it is all about the fancy colours. It used to work until a few months ago. Snazzy announces they can only offer their maps if NOT used with an embed method (which worked fine a while ago).

I have put out a message on (an external Belgian site) freelancers site to help with this, but please feel free if anyone wants to take the "challenge". Does not have to be 'for free'.

I still don't understand where the problem is. On https://snazzymaps.com/style/265611/moli, they offer to "download a simple example". Just copy & paste both <script> elements from the downloaded .html file into your CMSimple_XH template, and add <div id="map" style="width: 750px;height: 500px;"></div> to either the template or a page.
