Hi I was just wondering if there was a way that we could put a travel map in a fixed position on our site instead of inserting it into a single blog entry so it can be viewed all the time instead of having to scroll though all the blogs. Thanks for your help.
Not on your blog unfortunately. The only fixed place it will show up is under your profile, which is linked to from your blog (by clicking on the author link).
And of course you don't have to insert it in each blog entry as it's automatically linked from your blog entry based on the dates set on each blog entry (pending of course matching dates in a map you've set up). Interestingly enough, I notice your older entries (which fall in the date range also in your map) don't seem to be doing this, quite possibly because they haven't been 'mapped' yet?
An example of a mapped blog entry is this one on my blog (see the 'View Australia 2006 on Sam I Am's travel map.' link at the top of the entry which lets users click through directly to that map location and photos taken nearby). Note to self; should change the name of that trip as it looks weird on a Cook Islands entry LOL

The entries need to have the 'date range' provided to automatically be mapped. The date of posting is not considered when mapping entries.
If you edit some of those entries with dates overlapping your map and provide the date range of the entry, you'll find they will automatically become linked to your map.
