Changing the Size of a Google Map

If the Google Map on your website is the wrong size for the space it is in, the size can be adjusted.

Steps: Changing the Size of a Google Map

1. Click to add a checkmark in the box next to "Configure Blocks" in the HotDoodle Toolbar.

2. Click the "Edit Flash/YouTube Block" icon above your existing Google Map.

3. Change the width of the Google map by typing in a different number in the width="425" section of the code (shown below highlighted).

4. Change the height of the Google map by typing in a different number in the height="350" section of the code (shown below highlighted).

Note: the size settings in the block are overridden by the embed code and must remain that way to display correctly, which is the reason the height and width must be adjusted in the code and not in the block settings.

5. Click on the "Save" button.

 

6. Refresh your page by either pressing the F5 button on your keyboard or clicking on the refresh/reload button on your browser.
