Hey guys, I wanted to put a Frappr map on my blog, but when I try to copy and paste it in I only get all the hyper text and not the actual map. Am I doing something wrong, or is posting the map just not allowed?

At the moment, no external map is allowed on the blogs. You can use the TP map for your blog. :)

ah ok, well at least its not me just being computer dumb.

Not sure if you know that map, but its more interactive for everyone, and would have allowed me to see where people were loging on from.

Hi Dodger, I'm aware of the Frappr map. Kind of like a live, mapped guestbook right? This is probably more appropriate for social pages like Myspace or Facebook than Travellerspoint to be honest. We just don't have any great desire to head down that path at the moment :)

But yeah, as Hien said, our blogs are currently not opened up to HTML being pasted in. If you want to know where your blog visitors are coming from, then what you could do is activate Google Analytics on your blog. They have a map that will show where your visitors are coming from. More details on getting that set up can be found in this entry on our blog.

Just to add one thing to that comment of Peter's. The Google Analytics data should be MUCH more accurate than Frappr as well. Unlike frappr, it will also give you access to for example where the user was before they ended up on your site (did they come from travellerspoint, click on an email link, visit your blog from a search engine etc. etc. They don't have any export tools where you could then display that data if you wanted to, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were working on something like this. Oh, and you could take a screenshot of the mapped view in analytics and paste it to your website as a photo - not very interactive, but hey :)
