Ghumakkar – Map your destinations

When writing a new story, now you can put a ‘marker on a map’ for the destination you visited. This has been requested for a while and though we tried various options viz. adding google map code, having a ‘Map View’ page etc, none of them were really easy solutions. It seems that our search for an elegant solution for ‘mapping my destination’ has yielded something which would work for our needs.

Here’s step by step guide.

1. Go to Dashboard -> Posts -> Add New for a new story. OR to Dashboard -> Posts -> Edit for an existing story.
2. Scroll down to bottom of the screen and you would see following.

3. ‘Search’ for the desired location. It would find the location and put a marker. Now go to the bottom and give a name to the location. And you are done.

Do a ‘Preview’ and you should see the map at the end of the story. Simple. Hope this is useful for fellow Ghumakkars as well as our readers.

Leave a comment for any query and I would get back to you.
