  • Target URL in Post

    I use a couple of Google Maps for my forum. Placing a Maps Target URL in the Navigation Bar naturally will go straight to the map when clicked on which is exactly what I want with the exception I would like to place the Maps URL in a regular Post and have the map open without clicking the link once the post is open. Is there a way to say allow HTML in the post to where the map will be open when clicking on the post without having to click the maps link once the post is open..I hope I explained this to where it can be understood.

    Creating BBCode for it might be possible. How does the HTML for Google maps look like?

      Glenn, it looks like this <iframe frameborder=0 style='width:100%;height:500px;' src='//www.zeemaps.com/pub?group=124291'> </iframe>
      In order to not reveal the actual map here the numbers =124291 are incorrect. What BB code or tag could I try with this to post the map image?

        Create a custom BB Code in BB Code Manager with this replacement HTML. Ignore the message prompt when saving and press Continue button.

        Code:
        <iframe frameborder="0" style="width:100%;height:500px;" src="//www.zeemaps.com/pub?group={param}"></iframe>
        Click image for larger version

        If you specify a button image URL, there will be a button with that image in the Advanced Editor that will make the [map] bbcode easier to use.

        Users would have to enter the map ID inside the [map]xxxxx[/map] bbcode tags when posting
