Add a Map to Your Site

If your business or organization has offices that site visitors can visit, it's helpful to include a map to that location to your site.  And we have a built-in Google Maps element that helps you do just that. 

Start by dragging the Maps element to a page on your site.

The map displays a small part of central San Francisco (home of Easy DIY Website!) by default.  You can easily change this by clicking on it.  
This opens up the Map toolbar.  You can make a number of changes from here.

  • The most important is the Address.  You should enter the address you want right in this box.  I've already changed this one to read 48 Hoxton Square, London, UK. Enter your address using this same format (along with the postal code if you have one).
  • Change the size of the map using Width and Height.
  • Position the Map to the Left, Center or Right of the element. 
  • Determine if you want a Marker showing your address on the map (you probably do). 
  • Set the initial Zoom level.
You can also change a few of the less used settings via the Advanced menu.

Here's the map with the new address and size settings:
The two-column element is very useful in conjunction with the map element for placing visitor information directly next to the map.  As seen below:
48 Hoxton Square London N1 6PB
Open: 10 – 6pm Tuesday – Saturday

You are also welcome to embed a map you've created directly in Google Maps to your site.  Just grab the embed code from Google:
