I’m new to MapHub as of this week and I have to say so far I LOVE IT!
Anyway, I started creating a map of parking locations for our area and it has really been great. I later found out you can add web links into the description sections which I found helpful as well. But then it got me thinking how helpful a directions button would be for someone traveling to that garage/lot/etc.
So using PhotoBucket I uploaded a small Direction Icon (probably the size of the reply button on these threads maybe smaller), copy and pasted the embedded code to Notepad, went to google maps and put the address of the parking garage in the destination section, and then took that web link and used it to replace the “a href=” link in the photobucket embedded code.
Ok… So if your still with me… Haha. I was bummed to find out that it did not work in the “Description” section but soon after I was pumped to find out it worked perfectly when you put the embedded code in the “Title” section of the point created! So from there I decided to do the rest of my map points, but later found out as soon as you hit the save button every one of them disappeared! Bummer…
So what I am wondering is if anybody can think of a way to go about this to where the embedded codes will save and visitors of our area will be able to use this great map with all parking locations and a way to get directions?
I hope this isn’t something that MapHub frowns upon, but I definitely think if we can get these codes to save in the map points it will be an easy way for people to add direction links to their maps and a huge benefit to the creators and users of these awesome maps!
I look forward to any feedback and hope everyone’s having a great day!
