Travel Guide How To:Index How To:Insert a Zoomed-In Map in Your Blog



Inserting a Travellerspoint map in a zoomed in state within your blog is useful for several reasons. Let's say you are travelling around the world, but as a part of that you spend a few months trekking up and down the east coast of Australia. Because your trip covers a lot of the world when you consider the starting and end points, the default display mode when inserted in a blog entry will be the entire world. However, if you've got a great shot of yourself surfing in Byron Bay, you might well want to show your readers where exactly that was taken, instead of displaying a map of the world.

  • Click on the 'Insert' button
