Word Press Plugins

A pair of WordPress plugins have been created here specifically to handle adding HERE Maps on their website:

Blogger

Blogger at http://blogger.com is a popular web blogging system. Here are the required steps for adding a Nokia Map to your blog post.

We will create a new blog article using the online tools of Blogger. The example code will include the required HTML, JavaScript and styling needed to display the map. If needed, modify the paths and name of the file to suite your purposes.

Follow these steps to add HERE Maps into your blog:

STEP 1 Open a new Blogger post editing window.

STEP 2 Copy and paste the following code into the post ('Edit HTML code' mode). Remember to add in your own AppId and Token.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://js.api.here.com/se/2.5.3/jsl.js" charset="utf-8">
<div id="map" style="width:400px; height:400px;">
<script type="text/javascript">
// Don't forget to set your API credentials
nokia.Settings.set("app_id", "YOUR APP ID");
nokia.Settings.set("app_code", "YOUR TOKEN");
 
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(document.getElementById("mapContainer"),{
'zoomLevel': 10, //zoom level for the map
'center': [19.119, 72.8957] //center coordinates}
);
</script>

STEP 3 Post it! - it's done!

Note:

If you omit the zoom level value it will default to 0 (zero) and if you omit center, the coordinates will default to zero coordinates as well (0,0).

You can edit the map properties and change e.g. the zoom level and map center.
