What does it do?¶
This “Quick Maps” extension provides the possibility to include maps by GoogleMaps, MapBox or OpenStreetMap to your frontend in a quick and easy way. |
GoogleMaps licence change?¶
Due to the license change for the use of GoogleMaps, especially the obligation to specify a payment form for the developer account, I decided to extend this extension in such a way that maps from other services (OpenStreetMap and MapBox) can now also be used. |
API-Key / AccessToken?¶
API-Key or AccessToken only required for GoogleMaps and MapBox! |
Quick update from GoogleMaps to OpenStreetMap or MapBox:¶
ATTENTION: If you use custom templates for this extension, you have to update them if you want to use another map provider than GoogleMaps |
- install the new version 4.x via extension manager
- switch to the desired map provider in the constant editor (GoogleMaps, MapBox or OpenStreetMap)
- In the constant editor, enter the previously requested GoogleMaps API key or MapBox AccessToken.
- Clear cache (frontend cache & general cache required or clear whole cache in the install tool)
Please excuse that the documentation is not yet available in the “new” restructuredText format. As soon as I find some time I’ll take care of it! The previous documentation is still available within the extension as an ODT and PDF file.
