Trying to add a Google map with the following iFrame source:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d2003.9940972116535!2d17.704523800000004!3d59.84923819999999!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x465fc9342294aa27%3A0xd622e19f70dd4670!2sVirdings+all%C3%A9+28%2C+754+50+Uppsala%2C+Sweden!5e0!3m2!1sen!2s!4v1408457701070" width="400" height="300" frameborder="0" style="border:0") </iframe>

It’s translated into a short code, but the page displays the shortcode, not the map.

What am I doing wrong?

Hello swecoder,

I don’t know why the shortcode doesn’t work(it’s not something that we included in the theme as a feature). However you don’t need a shortcode to insert a google map.

Just follow this tutorial:

And make sure you are pasting the iframe code in the text(html) tab of the wordpress content editor.

Kind regards,

Ah, well, you see I’m using the Contact-form template from the theme.

I go to Appearance->Theme Options, and click the Contact-tab. Then I enter the iframe-source from google into the box labelled “Google maps code”.

I did exactly like the documentation you provided said, only when I press “save” from the Theme Setting page, the html-code in my first post turns into the short code, which in turn is displayed as if it was regular text on the page.

I guess if this doesn’t work I’ll have to cook up a regular page and use a non theme-specific contact form etc, but I liked the layout so it would have been sweet if I could use it.

Hello Hello swecoder,

The “Google Maps code” textarea should work with google map code since for this it was designed. Can you please send us an email via our themeforest profile page with user, password and link to your site so we can take a closer look ?

Kind regards,

Goldenworks team.
