Location on Google Map

To be very clear my museum's location on google maps is spot on. But when I put a Google Map plugin into my Wordpress.org website, the red locator flag is in the wrong position.

 

I appreciate I may be on the wrong forum - sorry.

 

Please help me correct the red locator pin on my website so our visitors don't get lost.

3. Current telephone number
4. GoogleMaps Link or GoogleSearch link

5 a link to the wordpress site showing the embedded map.

Hi Michelle,

Currently, the map on your web site points to the location of the postal code, but it is an embedded frame from Google Maps.

The maps on the event page use instead of the javascript API, but they are lacking the API key.

 

Which map is the one pointing at the wrong location and how did you embedded in your web site?

The URL of the page where the actual location is wrong would be more useful to figure out the matter.

Thank you

Hi

 

Both maps on the website point to the wrong location. If you look at the Google Search link you will see the words Nottingham Industrial Museum. The red location pointer on both maps on the website point to different locations within the same post code.

 

Our developer embedded the map on the How to find us page. The map on the events page is part of the plug-in called 'The Events Calendar' by Modern Tribe inc. Our developer installed the plug-in.

 

This is the URL for the how to find us page, the locator pin is in the wrong location

This is the URL for an events page, the locator pin is in the wrong location

http://www.nottinghamindustrialmuseum.org.uk/event/steaming_april/

 

Many thanks

This is the code our developer used to embed the map on the how to find us page

<iframe style="border: 0;" src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d9897.730037868558!2d-1.2190405359392842!3d52.9..." width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

Hi Michelle,

As I mentioned before, the reason the marker points to that location is because your developer used the location of the postal code instead of the location of the business listing for the museum. Tell your developer to get the code for the business listing from this URL
