Map won't center on Default address properly

Map won't center on Default address properly

Hello;
In my last post, I was wondering how to make this work with a form. Well I have that working now. The only problem I am having is that the map is not centered on my default address in IE and there is no balloon with the address in it like there is supposed to be in any browser.

I believe the file that runs this part of the app is the one I am attaching, the wagmp_map_1.cfm file.

Can anyone help me get this to center properly? Also, when you run the search from teh form, it comes out over seas with the map view when I am around the corner.

I have tried the code from google to center the map onload, that isn't working, I get no map when I do that, I did find the line that needed to be changed. I also addred the exact coordinants in that part of the center script and still nothing, even tried the <div> tags for center.

How do I fix this?

Thank you.

Here is my code for that page attached:

Do you have a link where this can be seen on a live site? If you have the reference to the wagmp_maps.js just before the ending body tag it should load as centered correctly.

With a link to the live page it would be possible to do some minor client side debugging to help determine why the page is loading like this.

The web site is here directions.cfm

I am attaching the java file. I do not have the script just before the last body tag. When I do that, it errors out. I do have the java tag under the div tags for the map and directions.

This is anoying, been trying to figure this out all day.

Thank you for looking.

I have found that the problem is an image that has a name and id of directions. This is causing a conflict with the map on the page and the js that uses the same names.

When implementing Google maps on your pages you should ensure that you do not name any elements the same as the ones that Google Maps uses, these include directions, address and any other names used by the map.
