I‘m trying-out the UMapper Plugin on the Glacier National Park post today, but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep using it, or not. It’s always a coin-toss on whether a new plugin will break your Blog’s validation and, sure enough, I’ve now got 31 XHTML 1.0 Transitional errors – grrrrrrrr.
The functionality sure is cool – I like the way you can pan and zoom the map around and change views to “terrain” or “satellite” in order to get a different perspective of the area. It’s just the implementation that is a little off. It doesn’t do much more my email subscribers either, which is not ideal.
I’ll dig into the plugin editor tonight and see if I can fix the validation errors, but I don’t have a lot of hope for that. So, I might be back to the drawing board with regards to implementing a map solution – does anyone have any recommendations?
