Web easy 9 embedding google maps

Hi Guys 

Have a issue with Web easy 9 and embedding google maps.  When i used web easy 8 i would go to google maps type  in the address and it would give me the HTML code to paste into my website quick and simple . Now with web easy 9 i have to insert a widget then i have to know the longitude and latitude of the location which seems to be a longer way of doing it. The problem is i can't remember exactly the way i did it in web easy 8 . Does anyone know how to do it by embedding the HTML code that google maps gives you . This would be a great help .

Cheers 

Gary

I just worked out how to do it by reading a old post from Arthur as below.
Click on Insert >> Component >> Html Code Fragment.
Paste the code that they provide and click OK.
Your mouse icon should then into something that resembles a shifted rectangle. Click on the area of the page you wish to embed the code.
It will insert a place-holder that will look like a picture of a gear. When you preview the page in a browser, that place-holder will be replaced with whatever the code designs. This way works better than the way that the help file suggests , hope this help someone else .

At a risk of sounding foolish, I have Web easy 9 and I can't seem to find Component on the Insert tool bar. Looked in help about Html Code fragment, no luck. Can you help me out. Thanks

This is regarding the above posting on locating Component on the Insert tool bar. Found it, in Web easy 9, it's Object>HTML Code Fragment, then insert your Google info from your clipboard. The rest is the same info.Thanks

Sorry about that There is a slight difference between ver 8 and ver 9 but yes you found it . Doing it that way works better than doing it the way version 9 help file recommends

Arthur , Thank you for your reply , I am using a program ( Simpleviewer ) to build a photo gallery on a site I am building with Webeasy 9
The problem is that once I have made thE gallery in simpleviewer it builds it into HTML and informs you to copy into
web page , so I copy this code into web easy and nothing ! I have tried the suggestions in this post and also

http://ticket.ihostvm.com/KB/a27/web-easy-inserting-html-into-web-easy-pages.aspx

but still no success.
I have tried flash gallery programs that save as SWF and I insert as an object in Web easy
there is no problem ,the gallery is there and working but Simpleviewer does not save in SWF so I need to find the root cause of my problem
because no doubt I will have to embed HTML (google maps etc) along the way . I would appreciate any help / advice on this . Thanks Michael

Michael,

If the files in the gallery (the images) must be placed in a specific directory that the program is referencing, you must manually do all of that after placing the code onto the page.
You will have to manually upload the files to the hosting server with a traditional FTP client, such as the FTP MAX, and make sure you placed it in the correct directory that the custom coding is using to reference the files.

Hi Arthur , have"nt uploaded a site yet ,I have been going through a few trials before i upload my site but i"m trying to get it running  on my pc first .
Question is why it"s not running a HTML photo gallery , ok I have tried as recommended but i must be missing out on something i.e do i have to put the files that Simpleviewer makes into a special folder anywhere as all i"m doing is copying the HTML files ? Thanks  Michael

Michael,

If the coding is requesting the browser to locate the images from a specific directory, those images have to be placed in that directory. You must look at the coding, and the file path it is referencing.

Hi Arthur I have tried a few ways and still no success , this is a copy of the html coding that Simpleviewer informs to copy + paste into webeasy (Insert and Modify - Object - HTML Code Fragment )

<!--START SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED.-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="svcore/js/simpleviewer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
simpleviewer.ready(function () {
simpleviewer.load("sv-container", "600", "600", "FFFFFF", true);
});
</script>
<div id="sv-container"></div>
<!-- END SIMPLEVIEWER EMBED -->

As you can see it does not request to locate the images from a specific directory . I hope you can throw some light on this . Thanks Michael .

Hello Michael,

The program does reference a simpleviewer.js file, which it is looking for in a directory "svcore/js/.

To get it to work in a preview, you would need to create a folder in the temp preview folder titled svcore, then create a folder within that folder titled js, then place the simpleviewer.js file in that.

On the hosting server, you will need to create a folder in the same directory as the html file titled svcore, then create a folder titled js, and upload the simpleviewer.js file to that directory.

Hi Arthur , Thanks for your patience on this , I will look into this and see how I do , trial and error on this one I think . It would be so easy to use a flash gallery as swf files are no bother in Web easy but I like the look and feel of Simpleviewer so I am going to perservere . I will let you know how I do , thanks again Michael .

Michael,

Did you place the .js files in the temp folder afterwards?
I would suggest placing the files in the location, then launching the index.html file from within the folder to do a preview.
