Post subject: Add a outside link to forum

Is it possible to add a link (google map) to one of my forums? I don't want it to show up in all the categories. Below is a link (if I did it right) to the page I would like add the link to. The person that did the map gave me the html code to insert if only I know where. I'm using PHP ver 2.0.22.

Thank for any help you can give me.

Some one should clean up that link...

You should be able to add a Goggle map to your board fairly easily. Especially if you only want to link to it.

Can you post the HTML code?

Here's the html he gave me.

<iframe width="600" height="1500" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;msa=0&amp;msid=114494217392182742937.0004600c5ad391183f201&amp;s=AARTsJoq8kRl7wI_ItOHlSw11VZkuDDX1w&amp;ll=40.478553,-81.446114&amp;spn=0.391722,0.205994&amp;z=12&amp;output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;msa=0&amp;msid=114494217392182742937.0004600c5ad391183f201&amp;ll=40.478553,-81.446114&amp;spn=0.391722,0.205994&amp;z=12&amp;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>

This is how you make a link to your google map. This is the easiest way to post it (As a link)
Google Map
Code:
[url=http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=114494217392182742937.0004600c5ad391183f201&ll=40.478553,-81.446114&spn=0.391722,0.205994&z=12&source=embed]Google Map[/url]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can post it as an Iframe also. But some people believe approving the Iframe tag is a bad security risk in phpbb2 because it
opens you up to other people posting Iframes on your board that might redirect your members to bad websites.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your other option is to make an image of tha Google map and post an image like this:
Code:
[url=http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=114494217392182742937.0004600c5ad391183f201&ll=40.478553,-81.446114&spn=0.391722,0.205994&z=12&source=embed][img]http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/3559/gmapbs2.png[/img][/url]


This is the image of the map directly linked to the Google map page so that if a client clicks on it it will open the map in another tab.
Example:

-Apologies for the stretched post but wraping it breaks the links.-

Cowboy,

Thanks for your help. I like the image of the map better than just the link so I think that's what I'll use. You made me a happy camper icon_biggrin.gif .
