  • "Haha..are you going to airstrike our office?"
  • Laugh filled the room.
  • "Haha...No. I’m working with the contact us page of Roocky Joomla template, I have installed couple of Google maps modules, and both require longitude and latitude, to show your location on the Google maps"

Attention!

6maps module is no longer available for download! We have released Joomla Forms builder with Google Map

After these words we decided to create our own Joomla Google Maps module which will meet all Balbooa requirements - beautiful, easy to customize and thoroughly tested.

We named it "6maps". To make using of our Joomla Google Maps module more comfortable, we have divided module options into two tabs: "Map Options" and "Marker and Infobox Options".

Map Options

The “Map Options” tab allows users to set specific options for map displaying:

  • set the height of the map in pixels;
  • set the width of the map in pixels;
  • set the default adress;
  • set the map type: satelite, hybrid, roadmap, terrain;
  • set the default zoom level.

But the most interesting option in the tab "Map Options" is color filter, allow you to customize the color scheme of the standard Google maps.

Allow to draw Google Maps in a suitable color that will look with your site in one color scheme. It looks very cool and we are sure, you will appreciate this option.

Marker and Infobox Options

On the second tab, you will find a list of options that are intended for work with marker of the map and infobox:

  • set the marker title;
  • upload a custom marker;
  • set content to information box with Joomla content editor.

6maps will be the first module of the huge number of Balbooa superior Joomla Extensions. We sincerely congratulate you with upcoming New Year and wish, that in new 2014 year, you will achieve all your goals without breaking your deadlines, we believe that this is real!
