Adding Google Maps

By Freeola Support on 11th December, 2017 | 0 Comment(s)

Including a custom Google Map on your site can be a great way to show your visitors where you are based or where you are holding an event. It also means that people can easily get directions.

 

Step 1: From the Main Menu, select Custom Code & Snippets from under the Website Tools heading.

 

Main Menu

 

Step 2: Click the Create New Snippet link. Choose a name for your snippet and enter it into the Snippet Name field.

Step 6: From the Main Menu click Page Manager and Edit the page you want to add the Google Map to.

 

From the Page Elements section, select Add Snippet and drag & drop it to where you would like it to appear on the page. Double click the box to select your snippet, if you have more than one you can choose from the drop-down menu and press Select.

Step 7: Your Snippet Name will now appear in your snippet block and should look similar to the image below in the Drag & Drop Editor. While it appears like this in the Editor, it should appear as a Google Map on your live site. Once you are happy press Finish.
