googleMaps plugin Tutorial 02: Zoom Level

This part 2 of a series of tutorial for the googleMaps plugin.

The Zoom Level

  • The keyword zoom sets the initial zoom level when the map is first displayed.
  • If you do not specify the zoom level, it will use the default zoom level of 15. This default can be changed via the Plugin Manager.

Zoom = 2Zoom = 8
{googleMaps addr="37.4219720, -122.0841430" zoom=2} {googleMaps addr="37.4219720, -122.0841430" zoom=8}

Zoom = 10Zoom = 15
{googleMaps addr="37.4219720, -122.0841430" zoom=10} {googleMaps addr="37.4219720, -122.0841430" zoom=15}

Hi Gerardo,

Sorry for the late reply.

Have just released googleMaps v2.5.19.

Please try this latest version and let me know if zoom works with your KML files now.

I've downloaded the latest googleMaps plug-in, but I'm having the same problem as gerardo.garcia in that zoom=?? isn't affecting the zoom level of the map when used with KML files.

When you say this was updated in googleMaps v2.5.19 is that the version that is compatible with Joomla 2.5+? I am using 1.7, would upgrading Joomla fix this problem?
