#34: Integrating and Customizing Google Maps

Google maps, with all the dragging and zooming and satellite view and all, is my mapping service of choice. Google offers an free API for their maps so you can integrate them right onto your site. Set you own default location, zoom level, widgetry. Even add your own markers with custom balloons. Remember though, if a map and directions are vital to your site, nothing beats some "plain English" directions.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
