Default HOW TO: Add a map

I've added a very simple map system to the BB code system.

Simply click the icon above:

Then type the name of the destination

HTML Code:
[MAP]The Shorehouse, Southend-on-Sea[/MAP]

Or the long/lat coordinates if you know them.

a simple way to get the lon/lat, is to go to the Google map of any locations, "right click" on the map where you want the coordinates and select "What's here?"

HTML Code:

Additionally you can add directions by simple adding the word "to" between two locations i.e.

HTML Code:
[MAP]London to Southend-on-Sea[/MAP]

You can also mix the locations between coordinates and named locations i.e.

HTML Code:
[MAP]London to 51.524168,0.775368[/MAP]
