How do I add a map to my post

Using shortcodes in the edit box for your post. The address parameter for the address, and the “zoom” parameter for zoom level (ex: 20=really zoomed in, 0=full world)

[royalmap address=”Dhaka, Bangladesh” zoom=”10″]

Can I add multiple maps to the same post?

Yes! But make sure you use the “id” parameter to create unique id’s for each map.

[royalmap id=”map1″ address=”Dhaka, Bangladesh”]
[royalmap id=”map2″ address=”Khulna, Bangladesh”]

Can I change the size of the map?

Yes! Just add your own width and height parameters (the default is 100%x400).

[royalmap w=”200″ h=”100″]

Can you add info bubbles?

Yes! Add the “infowindow” parameter

[royalmap address=”Mirpur, Dhaka” marker=”yes” infowindow=”Hello Dhaka!”]

Can you add KML’s?

Yes! Just provide the url link to the KML file. The map will auto center and zoom to the extent of your KML.

[royalmap kml=””]

Can you add Fusion Table Layers?

Yes! Just provide the Fusion Layer ID as “fusion” parameter.

[royalmap address=”90095″ z=9 fusion=”825831″]
