zoom level and centering the map

Hi,

I followed the instruction in the PDF file about setting the zoom level. I entered map.setZoom(6); behind every map.addOverlay. When I do this on my live page there is a grey google map whith just one pin showing.

I am also looking for I solution to center the map, as you take a look at the page (monumenten.php) you will see that some off the war monuments are not showing because they are a little to the north on the map and that you have to drag the map to get all the monuments.

Where am I going wrong??

Regards

Michel

please send a link where i can see the zoom problem.


for the centering, the map will center on the last address in your recordset.

you will need to order the recordset in such a way that the address you want the map centered on is the last on in the recordset

Hi,

If you take a look at : monumenten.php you wil see that the map is grey and there is only 1 pin showing where there should be several.

I placed : map.setZoom(10);
after every line : map.addOverlay(marker_0_<?php echo $rsCoordinaat_id; ?>);

You can find the file here :
wagmp_map_2.php

var fromAddress = {
enabled: true,



to:

var fromAddress = {
enabled: false,

adding zoom breaks the map

I'm having the same symptoms as Michel.

I have a map that works, drawing 11 locations from a database using latitude and longitude, all of which resolve correctly. The map centers on a default location, set manually in the editor, also using latitude and longitude.

When I apply the instructions for setting zoom by changing the code in wagmp_map_14.php, the map displays the first map marker only, and a grey background.

Clicking the marker to display the info bubble for that location triggers the background map to be drawn in, but the additional markers are not added.

See this link for the map:

locations-alberta-test.php

and the map php file can be found here:

wagmp_map_14.php

Directions are disabled for this map.

*edit* If I reverse the addition of the zoom code, using find-and-replace and leaving blank spaces, the map works again, showing all markers but using the default zoom and centered on the default location I have set.

Permissions on the _promaps_geocache folder and contents are 777

instead of adding:
map.setZoom(6);



try finding each instance of;
map.setCenter(point, 13);

and changing it to:
map.setCenter(point, 5);

Worked!

  try finding each instance of;
map.setCenter(point, 13);

and changing it to:
map.setCenter(point, 5);  



That worked. Thanks very much.
