This is part 8 of a series of tutorial for the googleDirections - To Here - plugin.

You can add one or more stopover points (Google calls them waypoints) from Point A to Point B.


Adding Stopover Points or Waypoints

  1. Direct from Point A (Stanford University) to Point B (Fremont)
  2. {googleDir_tohere width=400 height=360 
    home_addr="39210 Fremont Hub #211, Fremont, CA 94538"}
    

    Note: for testing purpose, you can the following address in the "Coming From" field: Stanford University, CA 94305

  3. Adding 3 Stopover Points
    • Enclose the stopover points in double quotes (")
    • Delimit each stopover point with ;
    {googleDir_tohere width=400 height=360 
    home_addr="39210 Fremont Hub #211, Fremont, CA 94538"
    stopover="456 University Ave. Palo Alto, CA 94301;  
    1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View CA 94043; 
    701 First Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94089"}

    home_addr="37.5439544, -121.9880076"
    stopover="37.4477442, -122.1596631;

    Adding Stopover Points with No Stopping (Bypass only)

    If you only want to make sure that the route bypass the 3 intermediate points, add the keyword (nostop) after each of the stopover point.

    {googleDir_tohere width=400 height=360 
    home_addr="39210 Fremont Hub #211, Fremont, CA 94538"
    stopover="456 University Ave. Palo Alto, CA 94301 (nostop);
    1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View CA 94043 (nostop);
    701 First Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94089 (nostop)"}
    

    Note: for testing purpose, you can the following address in the "Coming From" field: Stanford University, CA 94305
