    Probably a pretty basic question but I am having trouble pasting the Google Maps API URL into the Contact Info tab in the Theme Options.  I paste the text below

    https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/place?key=API_KEY

    &q=Space+Needle,Seattle+WA

    and it changes to this

    https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/place?key=API_KEY

    &q=Space+Needle,Seattle+WA

    i.e. the “&” symbol changes to “&”

    Is there something I am doing wrong?  I referred to here for the Google Maps Embed in iFrame info https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/embed/guide

    Regards

    Darren

    Hi Darren,

    Its not that difficult to embed a google map and you don’t need such things. This link explains how to find embed code: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/3544418?hl=en

    Thanks Shri,

    That fixed it.

    Regards

    Darren

    P.S. With the new Google Maps the menu link is on the bottom right and is the small gear icon.

    I am having trouble changing the map in the contact info.

    I paste in the iframe link from Google Maps, hit save and when the page reloads the field is empty. Any suggestions?

    Hi Brent,

    So sorry but not sure we were testing if we are answering everyone or not and found some open ones. Were you able to resolve this issue?

    Regards,
    Shri
