How to add a Google Map

This is a Google Map. I have used these extensively in the Great Ayton Shops, Pubs & Restaurants website:

The steps to create a Google Map are as follows:

  • Create yourself a Google account at
  • Choose Mail
  • Choose Sign up for Google Mail (you do not need to use this mailbox - I have a Google mail account and a Hotmail account)
  • Once you have created your account then login to Google
  • You will be logged into your mail account
  • On the top line you will see Mail Calendar Documents Photos Reader Web More
  • Choose More then Maps then My Maps
  • Choose Create New Map
  • Type in the name & description
  • You can zoom in and add placement markers
  • When your map is completed hit Done
  • Click on your map name to display it
  • On the right hand side you will see link
  • Hit link then copy the HTML code where it says Paste HTML to embed in website
  • Login to Wikidot, go to the right page, hit Edit, find the location where you want to embed
  • Type [[embed]]
  • Paste the Google Map text
  • You will find a command [[/embed]] has been added
  • Delete all the embed text after the </iframe> command up to the [[/embed]] command
  • If you want to change the height and/or width then type in new values
  • Save the page
