New instant ‘Make my map’ signup form for ClustrMaps newbies May 13, 2008Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News.
We’ve simplified our home page and made an instant ‘Make my map’ signup form. This form appears not only on the home page, but also at the very top of the page of every large map that gets displayed (example), making it significantly simpler for ClustrMaps newcomers to get their own maps.
This new ‘Make my map’ capability shortcuts the original multi-step procedure of having to sign up, wait for an email password, note the password, log in, and finally get the HTML code. Instead, there’s a 1-step ‘Make my map’ which immediately SHOWS YOU THE CUSTOM HTML that you need to put on your page. Moreover it provides this code in several optional formats, e.g. for those who need simplified ‘pure HTML’ code for MySpace, those who need BBcode for Wikis or Last.FM, and so on.
Of course, the new ‘Make my map’ setup also emails you a brand new automatically-generated password so that you can log in later if you need to re-retrieve the HTML, or if you need to adjust any of the options such as your update or archive frequency, not to mention future options such as custom map designs that we have in the pipeline at the moment!
