How to add a Google Map to your Joomla website
Written by Alex Ashman   

Google Maps in JoomlaGoogle maps is a fantastic free tool that can have a number of uses for your Joomla website, perhaps most importantly to show your site visitors where you business is located or where local sites of interest might be.

This tutorial goes through the installation of the "Plugin Googlemaps" extension for Joomla 1.5.

 

Plugin Googlemaps

Plugin Googlemaps is a free extension available for Joomla (1.0 and 1.5) which makes it really easy to add in a Google Map to your Joomla website. Installation only takes a few minutes and the maps can be easily customised to suit your needs. Here is an example of a typical simple map you can add (sadly we aren't really based in Times Square!).

JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Google Maps.
However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser.
To view Google Maps, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, and then try again.

As you can see it has most the flexibility of the standard google maps, allowing users to zoom in and out and of course to move around the map as needed.

Joomla 1.5 Legacy Mode

The first step in the installation process is to enable Legacy Mode in Joomla (you only need to do this is you are using Joomla 1.5, if you are running an older version you can skip to the next step). This can be accessed by going to the 'Plugin Manager' under 'Extensions' in the top navigation bar once you have logged into the backend.

Add Google Map Joomla Manager

It's as simple as clicking on 'enable' next to 'System - Legacy'. Once this is done you should see 'Legacy 1.0' appear in the top right of your screen.

Joomla legacy mode

Plugin Installation

After downloading Plugin Googlemaps from here, go to 'Extensions' then 'Install/Uninstall'. In the 'Upload Package File' select the zip file you have just downloaded and then click on 'Upload File and Install'.

Once this is done, return to the 'Plugin Manager', and you need to enable the 'Google Maps' plugin.

Google Maps API Key

In order to use Google Maps, you need an API key for each website you intend to publish the map upon. The API key can be obtained from this page once you agree to the terms and conditions and enter the URL of your website. You then need to copy the long string of numbers and paste them into the 'Google API Key' section of the parameters of the plugin. Click on apply and ensure the plugin is enabled. You are now ready to add a map to your site!

Google maps in Joomla 1.5 - API key

Latitude and Longitude Coordinates

The first step to customising your map is of course to set the geographical location that the map shows. This is done by setting the latitude and longitude coordinates within the code that you paste into your content. This can be obtained through Google Earth, however the quickest way to do this is to visit Google Maps and enter the location you want, through an address, postcode or place name. Once the page has finished loading and the correct location is shown, copy and paste the following into your navigation bar of your menu and press enter.

javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

A window will pop up giving you the latitude and longitude of your desired location. These are the coordinates you need to place into the code.

Plugin Code

The map at the top of the page was created by adding in the following code, using the coordinates for Times Square. I have removed the {...} which need to surround the entire section otherwise it would post a map. The paragraphs I have added for formatting reasons also need to be removed. The code can be posted anywhere in the body of your html and once inserted will show up as a map on your page. The whole process is very simple.

mosmap width='500'|height='400'|lat='40.75671'|lon='-73.98646'|zoom='3'
| zoomType='Large'|zoomNew='3'|mapType='map'| showMaptype='1'|
overview='1'|text='Good web practices'|lang=''

The code is fairly self explanatory in terms of customisation, but a full breakdown of the different parameters can be found here. The best idea is to play with each of the values and reload the map to see how they effect it.  There is alot of detailed information on how to add more features to your map, such as directions and route plans on the developer's site which can be found here.

Directions

Having generic directions for your customers is great, but it is a lot more useful for them to be able to plan their route door to door. Using the following code, the plugin will enable users to put in their postcode or address and a new page will load up with full directions on Google Map (remember to add in {...} again!

mosmap address='street, zipcode place,country'|dir='1|lat='40.75671'|
lon='-73.98646'|zoom='14'

JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Google Maps.
However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser.
To view Google Maps, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, and then try again.

We have certainly found this tool to be extremely easy to implement within a Joomla site, so a big thanks to the developer Mike Reumer!

Please check out the official Google Pluginmaps Website for more examples of the plugin's use, demos and documentation!

Hey guys, good site here. David, I'm finally getting around to commenting on your site! Just wanted to share an experience I had with Google maps.

If you have a site with a lot of transparent pics (such as png32 pics) and are using the Alpha Transparency filter that a lot of IE6 transparency fixes use, you won't be able to use Google maps. For some reason it creates an overflow in the Google maps API.

For instance, I used Dimensions from RocketThemes on the most current site we did. Dimensions uses a lot of transparency and when I tried to use Google maps I ran into variable overflows - I think that is what it was.

I did find a guy that coded a Javascript fix to the transparency issue, which he coded to get around this exact problem. The site is here:

http://www.campbellsdigitalsoup.co.uk/about/png-fix/

I got it to work, but it was making the site slow. Anyways, just wanted to pass that along. In the future I'm just going to avoid massive transparency like that of Dimensions. It looks cool, but causes WAY to many problems.

Take care guys...

Steve

You're welcome. Another thing to keep in mind is that a lot of Joomla modules/plugins use the Mootools library, and this IE fix uses JQuery. I remember I had to do some messing around with it to get it to work, but I honestly don't remember what I did. I think if you search for JQuery, they have a website that details what to do if you are using multiple libraries like that...

Just uploaded the extension. Doesn't work for me.

The { mosmap } tag is not being replaced by the map - just see the tag. I have installed as per instruction (but first time didn't do the legacy setting).

Using latest Joomla 1.5.

Weird. Thought I knew Joomla, but this one has me stumped.

Wouldn't call this a true 1.5 native, as it needs the legacy mode on to install.

These instructions are wonderful! Great for newbies like myself - very step-by-step. Thank you, Alex.

I did have one difficulty - I couldn't quite get the directions code to work ({ mosmap address='street, zipcode place,country'|dir='1|lat='40.75671'|lon='-73.98646'|zoom='4' }). When the new window came up, I had two addresses (an "A" and a "B"). In one of them was the address I put into the Address window on my map. On the other address I had "street, zipcode place,country (41.662429, -83.65189smilies/cool.gif". Here is the URL: http://www.newleafdata.com/int...&Itemid=81

I can leave it up for a few days if anyone would like to take a look and guide me in the right direction. Otherwise, I will remove this feature (which is really nice) and have just a map with the location (which is also really nice).

Thanks

Hi Frnds (Jean),

Here is Solution for your Google Map Question.
Steps:
1) First you need to download Googlemap Plugin(http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/mambot_google1/frs/) and then go to Install/Uninstall Menu of Admin panel of your Joomla.

2) Then you should have to install the zip file of Googlemap. Now sign up for Map Key in (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html). Copy this key and put in googlemap Plugin parameters API Key then save it.

3)In content Menu, Create new article which has type of that menu is googlemap article.And just put { mosmap } in (fck or tinimycy) editor and save it.

4)In Main Menu,Create a new menu type with article layout and select article Google map from parameters and save it.

5) Your Google map is successfully works.

Thanks,
Pankaj Prajapati

If you are having problems, make sure you upgrade to the latest component and have a seperate API for each domain you are using the component on. :-)

Very easy to follow instructions, worked like a charm on Joomla 1.5.8. Two things I stumbled on may be really obvious to others, but it's good to note:

1. Make sure you enable the plugin... otherwise just the code will appear on the page

2. Make sure you edit the 'street, zip code, country' section of the directions type. Otherwise the directions don't work.

This is the 3rd google map plug-in that I've tried. I did everything exactly as instructed and only the code is showing up. I enabled the plug-in, pasted in an API key, pasted in the lat. and long. and also pasted that into the code that I pasted into an article linked to the Directions menu. Anyone have any ideas? If you look at the page, you will see a residual menu from another google maps plug-in that I don't know how to get rid of. Keep hoping that something will work eventually - teaching myself the basics of CSS & HTML was so much easier than working with Joomla, I hate to admit it... I'm trying to create a new verson of this website: www.greenfrogtn.com - please note how easily the google map comes up on the direction page. I've spend days on this already and I'm ready to tear my hair out.

I just uploaded the extension and does not seem to work for me. I am not that familiar with PHP, however I understand that I could copy and paste the following code in one of the html or PHP files inside the body.
Should it look something like this:
{mosmap width='500'height='400'lat='40.75671'lon='-73.98646'zoom='3'zoomType='Large'zoomNew='3'mapType='map' showMaptype='1' overview='1'text='Good web practices'lang=''}
I just placed the curly brackets in the beginning and the end and remove the vertical lines between each paragraph.
Is this supposed to work inside the body tags?

Thanks in advance

So I am dissapointed, I looked at all the Google Maps and all of them are so confusing and dont work right. I like this the best becasue it set up in 10 minutes.. and does technicaly work.

I was able to make it work fine in an Article, but not in a Module.

1. Make sure you have Enabled via PlugIn Manager the System - Legacy
2. Install from Extensions - Install/Uninstall
3. Enable via PlugIn Manager the Google Maps plugin that you just installed.
4. Sometimes Joomla will clean up code when you save an article so it is best to change your Editor to No Editor via the Site - User Manager, select your user and change the User Editor to No Editor.
5. Create an Article and paste the code from this tutorial. Remove the | from the code. Add { at the front and } to the end of this block of code.
6. Create a Menu called Map and use the Menu Type Article Layout. Choose the article that you created called Map.
7. I use Search Engine Friendly URLs, which is set in Site - Global Configuration (to Yes). This make it so my new menu can be easily found by typing http://mydomainname.com/map (since I named the menu map and the alias is now map.

This means that I can use the menu to get to the map or just create a URL link from anywhere on my site.

Hello. I' m dealing with a huge problem. It seems that my drop down menus are appearing in the back of the google map api.
I search arround the web and i found that usally this happen when we have a flash object and we must set it to wmode=trnsparent to solve the problem.
The problem is that i think the the google maps api isn't in flash, and even if it was, i couldn't change that parameter anywere.

Does someone faced this problem? i got my z-index of the drop down menus set to 99;

I'm failing at the first hurdle. I'm running Joomla 1.5.15. When I go to Extensions/Plug In Manager, there is no Systems Legacy button in the top menu bar to allow me to enable this. All I have is Preview, Direct Mail & Logout options.

Great plugin!

Is important to mention that if you don´t link your article (with the map) from the menu, it will only show a blank space.

Cheers!

Hi guys, to all those who are having issues with displaying the map on your site, even when you're just simply using a simple {mosmap} tag, I figured that the google plugin PHP script is conflicting with another plugin you may have.

On my site, it was conflicting with one of RokCandy's macros. I detailed how this can be fixed, which you can see at http://meistrospektiv.com/2010...n-to-work/ .

I hope this helps others as it got me around the issue.

Cheers.

@ Joe: How did you get the google map to show up on your contact page? If you enter {mosmap} in the miscellaneous information or anywhere in the Contact form it does not work. I have been able to display a map in an article, but how do you incorporate a contact page & map on the same page? Thanks.

Once again Google maps crashes and is out of action for 4 hours today (8th April 2010) from 12.32pm to 4.32pm . Why will Google never release or publise this ! This happens every few weeks.

The accuracy, sla and support is very poor and no professional would use Google maps for business ! Any agency or API web developer take note ! Google maps was voted number 6 in a recent mapping survey with just 2 stars.

Did you know that Google were refused a UK postcode license ? Maybe they should leaving mapping to specialists like viamichelin or mappy.

I am looking for a way to pass placemark information in XML to Google Maps. This way I would like to place multiple placemarkers in different colors. I have seen examples using KML but these don't seem to work (any more). Can I pass XML or KML to mosmaps somehow?

Please help...

With kind regards,

I tried to do on plug-in management tool, but I couldn't delete it.

Hello, the plugin work perfectly, but I've an issue. The plugin only works with the parameters of the Plugin Manager, it ignores the ones in the {} brackets. So If I put a second map with another latitude-longitude coordinates, it just ignores them and shows the coordinates settled in the backend. I tried to set them to 0, or delete them, but it always fills them with a default USA coordinates.
