    Is it just me, or does it appear that the site isn't recognizing Google Maps HTML code inserted using [GMAP][/GMAP]? Looking at all of the existing state-specific entries I see lots of preexisting code but no maps.

    I was going to upload some route recommendations but figured I'd wait until I was sure about this.

    Interesting - I have the google API installed. Let me look into this and see if there is something else I need to add/change. Thanks for bringing this up.. I’ll get back with you.

    So did some quick research.. appears this isn’t native for XF. So I will need to do as an add-on or do some development. Still researching though... as am researching while sitting at boys swim meet.. :)

    Can you send me an example link you are trying to use? Appears there are a number of different ways to do google maps file integration.

    Scratch that - I see the links in that section.. looking into this. Appears there was a plugin on vb to allow for this. Trying to find one for XF. Also, I need to "learn" how to use this feature of google.. so I better understand the options. From what I understand you can actually export the map as a GXF file.

    For local club use purposes I share the link to the map on my Google Drive since the limited number of participants only need to access it for a finite period of time; however, that approach wouldn't be a good, elegant, or permanent solution for a longer-term MA map repository. Hopefully there is an XF plugin or suitable alternative.

    Quick update - the server move to the new hosting company is in process. We will do the initial data migration and testing.. then schedule the move. Once that is done, I will begin working on this again.. its a little more complex than I thought to get this updated. But will figure out a way. :D
