Google Maps Plugin - Driving Directions not available?

Hi.

I'm trying to do some sort of driving directions (eventually would like to get the users location automatically and create the directions) with the Google Maps plugin. However, there's nothing I can do to display driving directions.

I've granted support access to the site.

Thanks very much in advance!

    Hello Dewey,

    When you have a map, there is link under it "Directions", that will allow you to insert address from where you want get directions to point on your map

    But I check your page and map is not there - and by that I mean, shortcode [map id="1"] is not placed on that page. So any map will not show up at all.

    You need to place text widget on that page and place shortcode there. Directions are there on maps in your site - please see test page with map I created http://www.clarksburganimalhospital.com/wptest/map-test/

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Sorry, I had to move that off the page in case I couldn't get it resolved tonight. I see you've edited the maptest page (that's appreciated!).

    What I'm doing is dragging the "map" element (wpmudev's plug-in) from the draggable elements section. It prompts me for an address and then creates the map accordingly.

    If you created that driving directions map in you're plugin, do you have a link to show me how to do it correctly?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi Dewey,

    What I'm doing is dragging the "map" element (wpmudev's plug-in) from the draggable elements section. It prompts me for an address and then creates the map accordingly.

    That means you are using the "Map Element" inside the Upfront Editor and I'm afraid, if you create a map with that element, you won't be able to get the "direction" feature.

    To get direction feature, you will need to create a map with "Google Maps" plugin. I've created a screencast video showing how you can do that, here: http://take.ms/2jPmW

    I believe after watching this video, you will be able to add your own maps with directions. Please let us know if you have any confusion or if you are stuck at any point. We will be glad to help.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
