How do you get the Map to appear in a Blog?

I'm brand new and can't figure out how to set up my blog. I have the postcard template and have created a map but it doesn't show up in the blog. In the default template it shows one at the top but I can't figure out how to do that. Thanks!

Go to Control Panel (small white link at the very top of the page) -> My blogs -> Settings (to the right of the name of your blog). That page shows a whole long list of preferences. Near the end is "Show travel map on every page". Pick either "Show All Trips", or the name of a specific trip you want to show, and then hit the "Update settings" button at the bottom of the page. That should do the trick. (Your blog output might be cached, in which case it'll take up to an hour for the map to show. I don't think that's the case, but just in case.)

As an alternative to always showing this map, you can also, when writing a blog entry, click on the little globe "Map" icon right above the textarea, and insert a custom map straight into the blog entry (even specifying the exact zoom level and view of the map).
