Recently Google has changed the way their maps application works. You now will need to use your own Google Maps code. This is due to the fact that Google has greatly increased the functionality of their Maps software. Anytime you see a map now, you will be able to log-in directly on that map and get custom directions based on your saved locations. 

If the words embed and code sound scary, not to worry it is actually a very simple process: 

  1. Log into your Google Account

  2. Click on the Google Apps Button in the top right hand corner and go to Maps

  3. Here you will select your location or how you want the map to look

  4. After you have it looking the way you want, click on the hamburger menu in the top left hand corner and go to Share/Embed (its near the bottom)

  5. Copy the embed code

  6. On your Bookmark website, go to the Code Snippet module, drag and drop it to where you want it to be

  7. Past the Google Maps Embed code into the code snippet box

  8. You now have a fully functioning map!
