I have 2 business locations. How do I add another map showing the other location? When I try to use the map twice, it sets both to the same location. They are in different cities.

Hi Deborah

It is not possible to add more than 1 Business Location Widget to your site. If you try, you will see that the map will not display the correct information or even at all. Instead, if you wish to have more than 1 map displayed, please try this workaround:

1. Open the page on which you would like to add your business locations.
2. On the main menu, click "Layout".
3. Select the "1-Column Layout" option.
4. Drag and drop a Column Widget onto the page. You will find it in the "Basic" section on the Sidebar on the right of your screen.
5. Add a Text Widget in the left-hand column and add your first business address here. You can use the Text Editing Toolbar to change the size, font and color of your text.
6. Then drag and drop a Google Map Widget into the right-hand column. You'll find it in the "Maps" section on the Sidebar.

Repeat steps 4 to 6 until you have a location for each of your businesses.

I hope this helps. If not, let us know.

Hi Monique,

I tried what you suggested and every possible page layout and it did not work. I even tried using a sub-menu and still the second location would not post.

Hi,

Why not just generate the maps through Google maps (as you desire), and include them via the normal HTML widgets ? Much easier and this way you could add 100 maps if you want. Need more help, feel free to get back to me.
