Hiya,

I wanted to add a Chitika map, but the only option is Google. The Chitika ones come as code, like so:

<div id="map" style="width: 600px; height: 500px;"></div>
<script src="http://maps-static.chitika.net/chitikamaps.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var map = new ChitikaMap("0d8e06a959305ff0f99e30aaf2952bf6");
    map.setCenter(42.358726, -71.059828, 14);
    map.adsOn('demo', 'demo_map_channel', 'restaurants', '42.358726, -71.059828', false, 'bubble-bottom');
    map.addPin("Buckingham Palace","blue","The+Queen+lives+here");
    map.render('map');
</script>

Is there an existing way to do this? If not, could we please have a module to do so.

Thanks!

yours

Jo

This code will not work in our modules, Jo.

We're currently exploring the possibilities of incorporating Chitika maps, but we haven't made a decision, yet. There are many different aspects to be considered before making such a move. We will let you (and everyone else) know about it once we have a clear picture of the whole process.

Hi Jo, just to give you some prospects: Most likely, we're going to convert the Google Maps module into a Chitika Maps module as soon as the ad program is up and running nicely. Right now, you won't miss much, since it's just the beginning of that program. Chitika Maps does look nice and promising, so there's probably nothing that will prevent switching from Google to Chitika.

Thank you both for a very quick and comprehensive reply!

I think that Chitika maps would be a great addition to Wizzley. But on this occasion it wasn't so much for the potential revenue. I wrote about them, so wanted to put one in as an example. But it's all good! I improvised with a screenshot instead. :D
