In the upper RH corner of the map, there's a 'link' button in GoogleMaps. I then clicked on "Customize and preview embedded map" and copied and pasted from block 3 of the new window...
...after I mod'd the view of the map as I intended...

upper right hand corner of the map, select link. it opens a box. copy the two fields and paste them into you post (one at a time). see what happens. make sure you copy the entire code.

Neither of those lines of code works for what the Op wants.

The first line allows you to create links which her already uses and the second creates HTML code that does not appear to be recognised correctly by this forums software.

trying to post a image, as in your 2nd code. which I sort of can, but it seem to always want to add the sidebar etc, even if I disable it before posting the link ?

I've given up on Google map images on this forum I either post the link or just do a screen dump of the image and convert it to a jpg then post that.

It seems that whenever you try to embed driving directions it breaks the map. A quick google says vBulletin need a BBCode add-on to parse the iframe link, otherwise it just spits out a whole page.

I'm not quite sure what the issue is. This works and the tabs are clickable and you can scroll around the map.
