Getting Embed URL for Stage 2 - New Google Maps

  • Visit: https://www.google.com/maps/ and search for the area you want to display on your site.
  • Once the area is shown on the map, click the gear (cog) icon on the bottom right of the screen
  • Click the "Share and Embed map" link
  • Click the "Embed map" link
  • Copy the iframe code given to you on that screen.

Sample:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m12!1m3!1d44130.62170158657!2d-63.13943605!3d46.26684785!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!5e0!3m2!1sen!2s!4v1394810398767" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0"></iframe>
  • What you need from that code is just the URL, so in above case you would copy:

Sample:

https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m12!1m3!1d44130.62170158657!2d-63.13943605!3d46.26684785!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!5e0!3m2!1sen!2s!4v1394810398767

Plug that URL into the Map Embed URL box found at:

Genesis: Appearance -> Themedy Settings -> Front page Map Embed url:
Thesis 2: Thesis -> Skin Content -> Themedy Location Section

Note: If you don't want the location marker / pin to show on the map, click the "X" in the Google Maps search box to remove it, before copying your iframe code.

That's it your done!
