Is it possible to embed a google map on a post in the forum ?

I have an embed code starting with <iframe width="425" etc but that doesnt work when i preview my post

Is it possible?

HTML is not rendered in the forum for many reasons. However, getting GM to work could be pretty nifty. I'll have a look to see if there is a mod for this.

Ignore it, that didn't work. Crispin, there is supposed to be a way of adding map functionality to the BB codes. Will see if I can nail it down a bit more.

Yup, I found a way to get it working a couple weeks ago. Not working enough to put on here yet though. I'm away for the rest of the week but next week I plan to get it working properly.

Not sure if it will support a trip which is 22k miles long with markers placed every second before you ask ;) :lol:

Well if and when you get it working feel free to edit the link. Don't worry no GPS tracking as I would of needed to have the laptop running all the time, a bit impractical...

And I messed up with the distance, its only 22k kms... :oops:
