Blosxom Plugin - Google Maps Tag

Linking to Google maps is nice. Jumping through the hoops to get the target URL isn’t so much. This plugin allows you to use either a raw postcode (it’s built for the UK) or a named location that will get expanded out to a full Google Maps URL.

You can use any of these short cuts:

  • <gmap "office">
  • <a href="gmap:EC1V 3QR">
  • <gmap>EC1V 3QR</gmap>

For full details have a look at the Google Maps Tag Blosxom Plugin source. Note: The links generated by this plugin use, if you don’t like this (if you want to use the American site for example) then hack the source.
