Google map changes

Today I have changed the Google Maps plugin. All the posts containing maps have been updated to use the new plugin. From a readers point of view, almost nothing has changed. The only difference is the ability to zoom in on the map by clicking on the magnifying glass symbol on the left. This will bring up a full screen version of the map.

That’s it for today. Over the next few weeks I will start to replace the picture gallery.

So what's going on?

Gallery 2Google MapsNextGEN GalleryWordPress

Over the last few days I have been looking at a new picture gallery. And I have found the one I will migrate to NextGEN Gallery. I have also looked into options to put my pictures on a Google Map combined with the GPS tracks. I found a plugin that can do so XML Google Maps. As a result I will move away from the Inline Google Maps plugin.

While you will probably not see any changes while I am migrating the pictures to the NextGEN Gallery, you will see the impact of the Google Map plugin change. The new plugin uses a slightly different approach and since I can’t run the two plugins at the same time, you will see all sorts of strange messages in the maps that are now on my site. I will start to update the posts in order to solve the errors as soon as possible.

In the end, it will be much easier to look at my pictures and you can see where they have been taken (assuming I had my PhotoTrackr with me…).

Picture Gallery working (sort of)...

Well, I found out why you couldn’t get the bigger/high res pictures when clicking on a picture in the blog entries. I also tried to enable the Google maps integration, but that’s one that for sure will require a bit more time…

For now: this will allow you to look at “the bigger picture” or go to the “Picture Gallery” page to browse all pictures here ;-)

As you can see, I have been posting some messages over the last days. During the creation of the posts I have added an image gallery based on Gallery 2 and today I added a guestbook to the site.
