A new feature, and we like to think it’s a real cool one: you can now easily publish maps on your own website or blog. It just takes a second or two and a copy and paste operation.
If you have a trip on MTBGuru that you’d like to share using your own website or blog, insert a snippet of code and tadaa – the map, including the GPS track and clickable picture thumbnails magically appears on your site!
Let’s try it for instance here, using our ride in Annadel; this is the code:
<iframe src="http://www.mtbguru.com/trip/iframe/88?width=500px&height=500px" width="510px" height="565px" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"></iframe>
and this is the result:
(doesn’t work yet in Safari but it does in most other browsers)
The map is fully zoomable, can be dragged etc like a regular Google map. And clicking the camera icons shows the picture thumbnails (if you then click on a thumbnail your browser will point you to a higher resolution version of the photo).
You can just copy and paste this code; it’s on the bottom of each trip page in MTBGuru, look for the item that says ‘Publish Map’. It even works for posts on forums, for instance see this thread on mtbr.
