Yet another map display problem...

Yet another map display problem...

Sorry, but I have been working on this for a day. I have been through the other threads on the topic, but nothing seems to be helping.

I have a very simple test page. Nothing in the body except the map. Looks as expected in the Design window. When I preview it with Chrome and Safari, it looks fine. When I preview it with IE8 or Firefox, I get the grayed out outline and zoom/pan, but no map.

Here is the code...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="google_javascript/wagmp_map_4.js">/*wagmp*/</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2&key=ABQIAAAAvZMU4-DFRYtw1UlTj_zc6hT2yXp_ZAY8_ufC3CFXhHIE1NvwkxQcT1h-VA8wQL5JBdsM5JWeJpukvw">/*wagmp*/</script>
</head>

<body>
<div id="wagmp_map_4" style="width: 300px; height: 300px;"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="google_javascript/wagmp_maps.js">/*wagmp*/</script>
</body>
</html>



Any ideas?

Also, and I know there are lots of threads on this one as well, I can click on the map image in the Design window and get the "edit" button every time, but on anoth page, I can NEVER get it to show. Makes the tool, otherwise very nice, not usable since I can't edit the display points. I believe there is an open thread on this still.

Please send a link so I can see the problem in the browser to see what the cause may be.


for the map that cannot be edited, send a copy of the page and the google_javascript folder so I can recreate the problem to look into the cause.

browser source

Hard to make a server available for you, but I have attached the source as seen by the browser...

more clues...

Wrt the missing edit button, it turns out that if you take out the Spry menu bar code it shows up as advertised.

Thus simplified, the page still doesn't display in IE8 or Firefox.

I cant see the issue from looking at the source code.

If you cannot upload to a public server, can you send a copy of the origianl file, the google_folder and any supporting files so I can recreate the problem on my computer.

So I was in the process of pushing out a test page for you to look at and when I went to take a look at it myself on the server...bingo! There it was displaying properly. It is just on my local machine that IE8 has a problem...probably my security settings!

I have a second problem now, but I'll start another thread on that one!
