Missing Placemarker

Hi,

I have recently run into an issue where the he placemarker will no longer show up. Instead all I see is a gray box. Here is the link: contact.html

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks

The problem is that you are using an older version of Google maps which used images we used to host, but have taken down.

The solution is to either download and use the more recent version, which should fix this problem, or to manually update your google maps .js file.

It has:

icon.image = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/poppy.png';
icon.shadow = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/shadow.png';
icon.iconSize = new GSize(34,35);
icon.shadowSize = new GSize(34,35);
icon.iconAnchor = new GPoint(9,23);
icon.infoWindowAnchor = new GPoint(19,0);
icon.printImage = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/poppy.gif';
icon.mozPrintImage = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/poppy_mozprint.png';
icon.printShadow = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/shadow.gif';
icon.transparent = 'http://google.webassist.com/google/markers/traditionalpillow/poppy_transparent.png';


You would have to update those paths to the paths to the images you want to use.

I think the most recent version of the Dreamweaver Google Tools removed the maps functionality (I have vesion 2.0.2). Does this mean I have to Purchase Google Pro Maps?

Thanks.

Yes, or just update the image paths manually.

So do I change the path to 'http://google.com/google/markers/...... or is there a place that I can download the icons?

Thanks in Advance

I've created a new folder on the server with Icons and updated the paths but I still can't seem to get this to work properly. The previous maps I used for other websites seem to still be working though.

Do you have a sample url where I can view it? I might be able to spot the problem(s).

Those images don't exist:

pacifica.png

will bring up a 404 error. make sure the images exist in the location you are pointing to.

I've updated the paths but I still can't get the icons to show up on the map. Here is the correct link:
