    Google Maps can now be embedded into a post. To do so click on the Link butto in the map and copy the code in the Paste HTML to embed in website box.

    [​IMG]

    Click on the Icon to create the Embed Map bbcode.

    [​IMG]

    Paste the code between the [GMAP ][/GMAP ] tags. Please note a space has been added in the code above to have it show in the post.

    [​IMG]

    Add any text desired before or after the map and create your new thread or post.

    Example:

    This is a map of the track at Mid-Ohio:

    Well, here's something.....
    Inserting Google Maps works with ForumRunner (map can be displayed) but not with Tapatalk.

    I'm not seeing the full maps in either Tapatalk or ForumRunner. If one taps on the bottom part of the code in ForumRunner it will take you to a Google Maps app with a map of the location if you have the Google Maps app installed.
