I am using Joomla plugin "Google Maps" (i.e. plugin_googlemap3). I created a map with markers on Google maps pro and downloaded the kml file. I utilize the {mosmap} call with the kml parameter in the website article.

{mosmap kml='https:///myfile.kml'|centerlat='38.8403'|centerlon='-97.6114'|zoom='4'}

The map is rendered, but no markers are displayed. I have used Google Earth to check the kml file and the markers appear in it. Any ideas?

  • This question is something that should be aimed at the developer of the plugin and it's regarding a 3rd party extension

    What version of the plugin are you using? You might be able to add 'debug' to your mosmap code above to see what's going wrong. More info at tech.reumer.net/Google-Maps/Documentation-of-plugin-Googlemap/… Another point, I'd strongly recommend installing firebug and using that to see if you get any errors.

    If you view source, can you see the path to the KML file? Is it correct?

Some ideas:

  • Make sure you have followed the instructions correctly and that have published and configured anything that is required.
  • Also, check if the whole plugin is working correctly or if you may get JS conflicts.
  • Also, check with a debugger tool if any other errors exist (e.g. broken links to markers images files)
