Adding a Google Map to your Blog
Worpress explicitly forbids the use of iframes within pages. They explain why (https://wordpress.org/plugins/iframe/). Now, our workaround is using a plugin (Unfiltered MU) that prevents the iframes to be filtered and removed.
- Enable the plugin Unfiltered MU
- Go to Google Maps and locate your map and select the gear icon in the lower right of the screen. Select "Share and embed map" and a popup will appear. Select the Embed tab and copy the code from the box. The code will begin with <iframe.
- Create a Page in your blog and paste the code to the page. Save and publish your page.
Here is sample code for the Department of Education and Skills <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d2381.5666006505917!2d-6.257594000000002!3d53.351014000000006!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48670e86746aa15b%3A0xad995f4745150b2e!2sDepartment+of+Education+and+Skills!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sie!4v1423044685136" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0"></iframe>
