A QR Code

A QR Code (Quick response) allow you to display an URL readable by a mobile phone.   Using Google Maps and 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:


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

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=" .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
