Insert google map to a post

Hi,
Ive tried searching on this but everytime google or map is included in my description I get 1000s of results.

Is it possible to directly link/embed a google map into a post?

thanks in advance for any help.

I think to do this you need to use the google map api, and that would make putting an active map into a post impossible. At least that would be my guess. Have you ever included a map anywhere yourself?

The coding looks like this

<iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&amp;hl=en&amp;msa=0&amp;msid=112746521053827315323.000450c1a573e678da634&amp;ll=55.316643,-3.394775&amp;spn=2.694526,6.767578&amp;output=embed&amp;s=AARTsJrvN83HqCvz9qOyb15GYumx8b4R5g"></iframe>
<small><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&amp;hl=en&amp;msa=0&amp;msid=112746521053827315323.000450c1a573e678da634&amp;ll=55.316643,-3.394775&amp;spn=2.694526,6.767578&amp;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</small>

Works for me

so have you allowed html tags in

2 general -- config --

Have you allowed iframe

2 - general -- config --

Have you allowed html in the post

have you allowed html in your profile ??

For the link just take out the html tags for the link and replace with bbcode like below

Code:
[url=http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&amp;hl=en&amp;msa=0&amp;msid=112746521053827315323.000450c1a573e678da634&amp;ll=55.316643,-3.394775&amp;spn=2.694526,6.767578&amp;source=embed]View Larger Map[/url]


becomes

View Larger Map
