Map of distance travelled so far…

This is not 100% right as we went via Bunya Mountains and not via Dalby but it gives a general idea of how far we have come. Not very far in 24 days when it calculates you could do it in 6 hours….

WordPress lesson on inserting google maps

As we travel around I would like to be able to put a map of the area we are in. So I went to the WordPress support area to see if it could be done and found the answer was “yes”

So this is a map of the first leg of our trip.. It will be March 4th before we leave but I am getting excited about the thought of going as it is now getting so close.

We have not made any plans as to where we will go after Stanthorpe, and this will be a first for me, as usually, when I travel, I like to plan things almost to the second and have an itinerary worked out months in advance. This time it will be a very broad plan of which direction we will head and leave the details to chance…

How to insert Google maps

Google Maps

, , ,

    You can easily embed Google Maps into your WordPress.com blog.

1) Visit Google Maps.

2) Type in any street address or geographic location and click Search Maps.

googlemaps-search

3) Once your map is fully loaded, click on the Link option found on the top right of the map area.

googlemaps-link

4) A popup will appear, as illustrated below.

googlemaps-code

5) Place your mouse cursor in the text box titled Paste HTML to embed in website. The code will begin with <iframe. Copy the code.

6) In your WordPress.com dashboard, go to Posts->Add New or Pages->Add New (or open an existing post/page in editing mode). Paste the code directly into your visual editor.

7) Click Save Draft, Update, or Publish depending on the status of your post or page. You will notice that the code has changed. WordPress has converted the HTML code into the working shortcode.

Another wordpress lesson…

Today I am going to try to work out how to apply geotagging to a post.

Well it worked. If you scroll down you will see a location map, showing the golf course where we had lunch yesterday at Danny’s restaurant.

No it didn’t work!!!! When I published and went to look there wasn’t a location map…

Will have to go to WordPress support and see if any one else is having problems. I will be back later…

Christmas Lunch…

This is the beginning of the Christmas season. The weather is hot and steamy and I always find it very difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas having been born in England and my childhood memories are of snow and cold and roaring fires and always wondering how Santa was going to get down the chimney without getting burnt…

But suddenly when you are among friends that brings on the spirit of Christmas and good cheer. Today it was the “retired on line” computer club’s Christmas lunch and 101 members enjoyed a social time together. Here in Australia Christmas is sun and fun and lazy days at the beach and sharing BBQ’s with friends.

The lunch was at Danny’s restaurant at the Tweed Heads Golf Club. It is amazing value at $14.00 per person and a huge selection from roasts to salads, chinese and seafood followed by deserts. Take a look at the link I have put in.

Thank you Jack for all the happy photos you have taken to remind us of this occasion.

Tomorrow I must start writing and sending Christmas cards….
