Use existing map (Saved Google Maps)

Google Maps has this feature that lets the user save a map, which can then be collaboratively edited with other users. Can this plugin use the maps that I've already saved on Google Maps?

    Hi,

    The latest plugin release (v2.3, just released) comes with two new Add-ons that allow for KML overlays support and KML file uploads.

    The one named "KML Overlay" is the core KML support add-on. It will allow you to overlay an existing KML over yor map, by providing an URL. There are two basic ways of giving your map a KML overlay using this add-on: 1) by adding a KML URL in map options dialog, in map editor interface, and/or 2) by using the new "kml_url" shortcode attribute (note that you have to have "KML Overlay" add-on activated for either of these to work).

    The "kml_url" shortcode attribute accepts a KML file URL, and will overlay it over a map. This attribute can also be used as standalone (i.e. a map doesn’t need to previously exist to overlay a KML over it), as well as with existing maps. E.g.:

    [map id="3" kml_url="http://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/geo/Zrenjanin?tags=sunflower&lang=en-us&format=kml_nl" width="100%" height="300"]

    The other add-on, KML Uploader, further extends the functionality of KML Overlay by allowing users to upload KML files and easily use them in map options. KML Uploader add-on requires KML Uploader to be activated first. After it has been activated, users can upload their own KMLs and access them in map options dialog.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
