Mapstraction Action Documentation

not included in Wikka

This is the documentation page for the {{mapstraction}} action.


Short description

This action outputs a map of a given map provider. The mapstraction scripts support different providers. Some need keys for usage, some have withdrawn their service (e.g. Microsoft, MapQuest).


To use this action you'll need the scripts you find here:

Put them into the directory [your wikka installation directory]/3rdparty/plugins/mapstraction/. Furthermore you should add this line to you wikka.config.php:
    'mapstraction_path' => '3rdparty/plugins/mapstraction',

Of course, you can choose a different path -- but why?
