  4. To change the word "View Map" to another language, edit the following BB Code:

    Admin CP -> Custom BB Codes -> [map] -> HTML Replacement:
Installation:
  1. Download viewmap_v1.4.zip and unzip it.
  2. Upload the Andy folder to your server. The correct location is library/Andy.
  3. From your Admin Control Panel, go to the "Install Add-on" page.
  4. Upload the addon-ViewMap_v1.4.xml file.
  5. Click the Install Add-on button.
Setup step 1:

Copy the following two files from the add-on directory to a web viewable directory of your choice, for example a /misc/ folder:

viewmap.php
viewmap_crosshair.gif

Edit the viewmap.php file and change the first few variables to reflect your forum information.

Setup step 2:

In the Options page, add the Location and Default Coordinates.

How it works:
  1. Member clicks View Map button.
  2. The View Map button is a Custom BB Code.
  3. Custom BB Code calls a link which is defined in the Route Prefix.
  4. The Route Prefix calls Viewmap.php located in the add-on directory.
  5. The Viewmap.php redirects to viewmap.php.
  6. The viewmap.php file calls the Google API to display a map.
