I watched Chris’ video on how to put a google map into a blogger sidebar.  I thought I was all ready to go until I discovered that the google maps she demonstrated with is not the new map engine crap!  I figured out how to “cop” the link, but the map comes up huge in my sidebar.  I know that Chris sized her map in the video, but I can’t find out how to size the map in the new google maps!  Please help!!!CryCry

To change the size, you need to edit the Height and Width numbers in the embed code. So, here is a sample embed code:

[googlemaps https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/embed?mid=zPDKxuoyW_dI.kQGS2GdrhzuA&w=640&h=480%5D

See the width=”640″ ?? Change that to 320 and the height from 480 to 240, and you’ll have a map that is half the size of the original.
