A QR Code

A QR Code (Quick response) allow you to display an URL readable by a mobile phone.   Using Google Maps and Goo.gl URL Shortener, I am going to show you how to inset a QR code into your ning in the correct way.

 

A Practical Example.


Check out Land Surveyors United Member Map on Google Maps, which generates this LOOOOONG URL:

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=216029752787869705146.000498828f08ca84b822c&t=h&z=2

 

Now Plug that long URL into Goo.gl URL shorter and we get this:

http://goo.gl/jz6BV


The QR Code Again

We just add .qr to the shorten URL, to get the URL of the QR Code :


To display the QR Code, we just use an img tag :


<img src="http://goo.gl/jz6BV .qr" style="border: 1px solid #000; padding: 5px;" alt="QR code - Google Maps - LSU Member Map" title="QR code - Google Maps - LSU Member Map" />  

Plug this into the HTML of a text box and we get this:

Our Result
QR code - Google Maps - LSU Member Map
