ClustrMaps on Google Sites

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for Google Sites users

Note: This set of instructions refers to the ‘Google Sites’ service that Google acquired from JotSpot. Different instructions are available for GooglePages!

For convenience, we repeat steps 1-4 of the main instructions on the HTML setup page, and add more specific instructions for this case using the sub-steps shown at step 5 below.

PHASE I: Copy your ClustrMaps HTML code

1. Log in to your ClustrMaps ‘Admin’ page by clicking on the Admin link at the top of any ClustrMaps page, or going directly to: http://www.clustrmaps.com/admin/action.php (use your URL as your username, and the password you have been sent, or the password you changed it to)

2. On your admin page, you will see a box containing the relevant HTML code. PLEASE USE OPTION [B] THAT IS PROVIDED! Click in the box with your mouse and select ALL of that text (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL+A to select all of it)

3. Now copy that HTML (you can use the two keyboard keys CTRL+C to perform this, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Copy’); you will then paste it into your web page later on below.

PHASE II: GooglePages-specific alterations

4. Now you must log into your GooglePages account, using the sequence you would normally use, say, if you were about to change your settings or preferences or user profile information. Do this in a separate browser window if possible, or in the same window you are currently using if that is simpler for you.

5. You now need to alter the ‘code’ on your page where the map is going to appear. To do this, follow the specific sequence for this type of site as specified immediately below:

[Thanks to this enthusiastic ClustrMaps user for the tip!]

a) go to an existing Google Sites Page, typically your home page, sign in to that page (or create a new one if you prefer) and click the “Edit page” button near the top left of the page.

b) click in any field where you are allowed to enter text (for example, the main text or the ‘page footer’)

c) click on the small pencil labelled ‘HTML’ on the far right hand side of the editting toolbar

d) in addition to whatever other items you want to add, paste the HTML you copied at step 3 as follows: use the CTRL+V keys to paste what you earlier copied at step 3 above, or right-click with the mouse and select ‘Paste’

e) click on “Update” to return to normal view.

f) click on “Save” in the editting toolbar to save your changes to the page.
