No Map Data -- Just the Background Shows

No Map Data -- Just the Background Shows

My first attempt to add a single map after going to the suite results in the background of the map showing up in the proper size, but no map!

I verified the address on Google maps. I've done this four times.

Oh, Great Maker! What am I doing wrong?

Top "map" is what I've done. The one that displays is an old-style version from Google.
contactMAP.html

when i view your page using fire fox, fire bug is telling me that the promaps_geocache_php.php file cannot be found on the server.

make sure to upload that file so that the address can be properly geocoded to get the latitude and longitude

I have uploaded everything in the folder google_javascript. There isn't much.
wagmp_map_1.js
wagmp_maps.js

and stuff in the images folder.

It seems like some files are not getting created by the wizard. Any ideas?

not sure why it;s not being created, but here is a copy of the /google_javascript/promaps_geocache_php.php file to use:

Before I read the link for the .zip file, I exited Dreamweaver and uninstalled Design Extender. Downloaded the latest version. Reinstalled design extender. Deleted references to Google script/map on page and created a new map. No help.

I downloaded, unzipped put in the google_javascript folder, and uploaded. No help.

I put a second copy into the root of the web, because I wasn't sure from the post above exactly where the missing file was (the ... 's). No help.

Are there other things missing?

Why me? I have Windows7 64-bit, DW CSS5, and created maps with the stand-alone extension before (but uninstalled that extension before installing the combined Design Extender). I have these extensions installed:
Dreamweaver HTML5 Pack 1.2.7
Jeffrey Zeldman's Web Standards Advisor 1.0.2
Cookies Toolkit 3.1.3
Universal Mail 4.0.1
HTML Editor 2.0.2
SecurityAssist 2.0.5
Theme-It 1.0.2
Design Extender 1.0.3

I created another test page for a map: testgbw.html . Same location on the, same everything -- I think. It works.

The script and calls in contactMAP.html look the same to me (with a different map number) as in the new page that works. The old page still doesn't work... and the live version of that existing page is the one I want to add the map to.

The page with the map that works is a blank page from a template, but I don't see how that would alter the behavior of the map.

the problem on your other page is caused by mixing the Google Maps V2 api and the V3 api.


the code generated by design extender uses the google v3 api.

the code for your map:

<!-- MAP START HERE -->
<div id="map" style="width: 500px; height: 360px"></div>

<script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAAtCqz5i2UepKpsK0jDA39uxTraGz99MIGniqCPhnwOuwIPEemEhSR3R45WE6M-VlfOoMJSmywoEfozQ"
type="text/javascript">></script>


<!-- MAP END HERE -->


uses the v2 api, and is causing a conflict.


if you remove that code from the page, the design extender map will start working.


you can use more than 1 V3 map on the page, but combining the 2 apis will cause conflicts.
