View Full Version : Putting a location map on a website

04-09-2010, 07:44 PM
I am developing a site and wish to have the ability of putting a location map, for a number of linked sites, (obviously not all at the same time)

I been looking at Google maps and it's seems pretty easy just to look up a postcode, get a map, customise the size then paste the code into a site.

However, I know there is an option to show all businesses on a map, but I definitely don't want this option to be shown. A location map for a local butcher doesn't want to promote all their rivals. How do you turn this option off. A map with just the one arrow would be nice

Can you set the marker to an exact location.

I don't have to use Google ... if there is another suitable site, even just for a small static map, that would be all i would need.

thanks !
