    I have previously used this advice page http://en.support.wordpress.com/google-maps/ to easily place a google maps frame into a wordpress post.

    This doesn’t seem to work on myblogs. Dunno why.

    Could someone else verify that I’m not doing something totally stupid? And if not, we need to work out why it’s not working, since I’m guessing that this is something people will use an awful lot.

    It worked OK here Andy. Did you copy and paste the html code, not the IM/email code? Did you paste it into the HTML view when creating your post? (Choose HTML tab instead of Visual tab in the text editor.)

    Hmm, now my Google Maps post is just showing a link, not the embedded map. It seems that WordPress strips out iframes, which is what Google supplies in their embed code.
    I’ll have a look into workarounds.

    I added a plugin to allow for the use of Google Maps. Please see this post: http://myblog.arts.ac.uk/2010/11/09/google-maps-and-twitter-feeds/
