    1. Large easy to use Google map displayed full screen.
    2. Responsive code supports all devices.
    3. Visitors tab has a link called View Map, this allows viewing the Google map.
    4. View Map button when clicked shows exact location in Google map.
    5. All phrases start with viewmap_ for your convenience.
    How to create a View Map button:
    1. Under the Visitors tab, click the View Map link.
    2. Move map to desired location.
    3. Copy the Map code and paste it into a message.

      Example of map code: YvQftNI.jpg
    4. To change the word "View Map" to another language, edit the following BB Code:
    Admin CP -> Custom BB Codes -> [map] -> HTML Replacement:

    1. Download viewmap_v1.3.zip and unzip it.
    2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
    3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
    4. Upload the addon-ViewMap_v1.3.xml file.
    5. Click the Install Add-on button.
    Setup step 1:

    Copy the following two files from the add-on directory to a web viewable directory of your choice, for example a /misc/ folder:


    Edit the viewmap.php file and change the following code to reflect your URL link.

    <a href="http://www.southbayriders.com/forums/">Forums</a> > View Map
    Setup step 2:

    In the Options page, add the Location and Default Coordinates.

    How it works:
    1. Member clicks View Map button.
    2. The View Map button is a Custom BB Code.
    3. Custom BB Code calls a link which is defined in the Route Prefix.
    4. The Route Prefix calls Viewmap.php located in the add-on directory.
    5. The Viewmap.php redirects to viewmap.php.
    6. The viewmap.php file calls the Google API to display a map.
