How did you create your views? Is it working on node?

thank you.

i didnt create view at the time i posted that content with new content type as tutorial told.

but in fact i omitted the following step of tutorial

8. View this
a. Node Locations
i. Edit default map in Administer -> Site Configuration -> GMap Location – set node map center to 54,-114 to show US

which I can not figure out how to implement in 5.0.
not sure if it is causing the problem.

appreciate if you'd help.

Hi Kenji,

You need to configure input format for gmap macro. Administer -> Site Configuration -> Input Format -> Filtered HTML -> Configure. Then enable GMap macro expander.

Then you need to configure location. Administer -> Site Configuration -> Location. Enable 'Use a Google Map to set latitude and longitude'.

When you add content type, create a mark at your location on map and type [gmap] in your content. Then it will show gmap in your node.

I hope this will help you.

This was sooo helpful: "type [gmap] in your content"...

I can't believe this was not told in modules' docs or i missed it. I tried any possibility for almost 2 days, no solution; and [gmap] solved it.


Typing [gmap] only shows default gmap, not the location you created. :( If you create a macro and paste it to content, it works. But this is not the "right way" i think.

About view: Do you mean view module and creating a view by using it? If i have to use View module too... i did not like this...

Again my problem: I can create a location and see it ok while creating; but it disappears when viewing page(logged in or out, doesn't matter).

If I type [gmap] in my content there is only the text [gmap] to see and i dont know why. The Link to the tutorial isnt working anymore, can someone explain to me how this thing works?

If you're seeing [gmap] in the node view, then you still need to enable the gmap input filter. Look at the "Kenji you need to" response, third from the top comment on this node.

This made it SOOOO easy. Thanks for the post.

For the questions below, when you enable the build a gmap macro you will get an option in your navigation bar to build a gmap maco. Go there to set up your map and at the bottom will be the [gmap ..................] to paste into your content.
