NC for Hire

So, you've read and followed the instructions on how to map your network members (or how to make a member map in 2.0) and you've created a map.  But now you realize that your map hangs off to the side when viewed in mobile devices.  Well you may have noticed that in the height and width parameters of the embed code, the default height for medium embeds is 450px or 75% of the default width (600px). And as you may know by now, measurements in pixels will not adapt to the 3.0 platform. The way to fix this is to make it adaptive so that it responds to the width of the device your visitor/member is using.  Here is one way to do just that in simple terms:

1. Add The Following CSS to your Adv. CSS section of Dashboard:

.google-maps {
    position: relative;
    padding-bottom: 75%; // This is the aspect ratio
    height: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    }
    .google-maps iframe {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    width: 100% !important;
    height: 100% !important;
    }

2. Now Grab your iframe embed code for the map and paste it into a TXT file:

3. Now simply add this before that code:    <div class="google-maps">

<iframe>......</iframe>

and this after the code:  </div>

Note: you can change the the value of padding-bottom 75% in line 3 above in the CSS to to something for a different aspect ratio. 

4. Now simply copy that entire iframe code wrapped in div class="google-maps" and paste it into the HTML module where you'd like for it to be displayed.

Result of Responsive Member Map:

I may add a few more tweaks to get this perfect and when I do, I'll place them back inside this discussion.

If you have any questions or would like to hire someone to map your Ning network members for you, drop me a line to discuss. Good luck and enjoy!
