This plug-in rebuild googlemaps plugin of Christopher Smith to use new GoogleMap javascript API v3.


  • Not needed Google Map API Key
  • Has a helper, showing the coordinates of the selected point & center map
  • Separate small signature & wiki-description of marker
  • Asynchronous loading of Google java script
  • New Googlemap API v.3 can be more fastest work what v.2
  • You can use one mouse click on map for moving

Plugin homepage:


Syntax little differently than in googlemaps plugin:

<googlemap3 width="number" height="number" lat="number" lng="number">
latitude, longtitude, short signature; long desctiption
latitude, longtitude, short signature; long desctiption with {{:some:image.jpg?300|with image}} and [[:page:link| link to page]]
latitude, longtitude, short signature without longdescription;
latitude, longtitude,;longdescription without signature 

Long description for marker you must write in one string, without line break.

Use a semicolon as separator is dictated by the desire to use a comma in the signatures, for example, “Anchho Mountain, height 2696m.”

You can disable the coordinates helper:

<googlemap3 width="number" height="number" helper="off" >

By default it is enabled.

Known Bugs and Issues

  • No google map appears on my page.
Does not work on IE7

I'm running dokuwiki 'Adora Belle' (fresh default install). The map shows up in Firefox but not in IE7. The page status bar says 'Done, but with errors on page'. Details says 'Error: array 'googleMapArray' is undefined'


Hello, can you please insert a Sample to test the installation? In my case only a line is shown :-( Me either…

FIXME A malicious content editor can inject javascript into the page even if $conf['htmlok'] is false (details emailed to Borodin/Chris 6th Jul 2013) - symcbean, 12 Jul 2013
