WLW add map

    Question

  • Was trying to set up my windows live writer. Typed some stuff and wanted to upload a map of where I was going. Clicked it, and whatever address I inserted, it wouldn't load.

    It just kept on saying: "Loading Windows Live Local Map..."

     

    any help?

  • Sounds like you were trying to attach a map, but the map wasn't an image [like jpg] and it wouldn't attach it.

    Windows Live Writer has a nice plug-in for that...

    As a suggestion, I've been using a plug-in for inserting Google Maps with Windows Live Writer, so I think it does pretty well.

    I suggest this one:

    I hope this helps...

  • Thanks for the Google Map plug-in.

    But I think it is suffering from the same problem. Somehow, the Bing map and google map aren't getting any connection from the WLW to the the internet. I thought at first it was just the Bing app that wasn't working, but now the google map has put it in the right place, but the map is still loading.

    So, if anyone has some info about this?

     

    Anyway, thanks Larry.

  • I'm sorry you're having problems, but I just tested it; it's working fine on my system [like a charm].

    I don't think it's Windows Live Writer at this point.

    Good luck.

  • Hmpf,

    thanks Larry for responding. I believe you when it isn't anything to do with WLW itself.

    I'm thinking some of the settings are wrong. I do have WLW set in Dutch... anyway if there is someone out there. Still have some time left until I actually want to post stuff.
