Embedding Maps In Wordpress

Travel Forums System Talk Embedding Maps In Wordpress

Hey, so I'm afraid I discovered Travellerspoint too late to use it as my blog host. I currently use Wordpress.com. It seems though that I can't embed a map from here in Wordpress.com. I can embed interactive Google Maps without a problem but for some reason, not Travellerspoint. Any ideas if this will be something we'd be able to do in the future?

I'm afraid that will be up to Wordpress, not us. They have locked down Wordpress.com to only allow certain embeds and those are generally only from major sites like Google. As such, I really can't say whether it's likely to be opened up in the future. Though I do consider it quite unlikely.

If you ever switch to self-hosting a Wordpress site you will be able to use Travellerspoint's map embed without any trouble.

The other option is to take screengrabs of the map and then just add a link to the full interactive version.

Having spoken to Wordpress I can confirm you can embed all iframes without a plug in on a hosted site but only if you upgrade to the business plan. Thought you'd like to know :)

Yes that is interesting indeed. Thanks for letting me know
