Allow some way to embed Google Maps
Short, concise description of the idea
Given that Google Maps, like Youtube, generate code to embed maps in a web page, it would be great to be able to do so.
Full description of the idea
The problem with Google Maps embed code is that it uses the iframe html tag, which google disallows. What I'd propose would be to extend the 'embed media' command to recognize the Google Maps embed codes, strip out the iFrame, and do a secure equivalent.
- Allows you to put google maps in LJ entries. ;-) This can include satellite views, street views etc. You could announce a party to a local LJ group and paste the map right in the post.
- Like anything else, someone way smarter than me could figure out how to subvert it to do annoying things.
