Map Size on blog

Travel Forums System Talk Map Size on blog

Hi! Is there a way to enlarge the size of the travelers point map that is embed in a blog website? I feel the actual map when displayed on the website is too small and would like to make it larger. Thank you!

There is, yes. I see you're already editing the CSS for your blog, so look for the selectors:
#blogcontent #blognav_map
and
#blognav_map .map, #blognav_map .tp_map

Remove the margin-left from the former, and set its width to just 100% instead of calc(100% - 150px), then adjust the height in the latter to taste.

That's for the map at the top of your blog. For the embedded maps in each blog entry, look for the selector:
.map, .tp_map

If you're trying to achieve a specific effect and can't quite get there, just reply here, and I'd be happy to help further.

I make my own maps from Google...

To do this you put your start point into Google, say, Omaha, then the first main place through which you'll pass through, say Cedar Bluff. So you put 'Omaha NE to Cedar Bluff NE into Google, then when you get that result there's a small map. But along the line under your initial request line you see 'maps'.

Click on that and you find there's a panel comes up by which you can put in further destinations.

And if you add in the ones I have you get this map:

Except that I give it more contrast, bring back the gamma curve (darken it progressively) and increase the colour saturation.

That's how I produced the maps for my blog (https://www.travellerspoint.com/my_blogentries.cfm?blogid=154994) and then I took a screen print, pasted to Irfanview to do the changes and to crop to suit and then saved them.
