ClustrMaps on Joomla

ClustrMaps HTML installation instructions for Joomla users

For convenience, we repeat steps 1-3 of the main instructions on the HTML setup page, and add more specific instructions for this case using the sub-steps shown in ‘PHASE II’ 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: Joomla-specific alterations

Here are some instructions provided by enthusiastic ClustrMaps user Jim Cakalic at http://www.scwband.org (thanks, Jim!):

a. Use the Content Item Module extension:

b. Dowload the correct module version (J! 1.0 or 1.5).

c. Install the module using the normal Joomla admin install page.

d. Create a new article and in the HTML editor paste the ClustrMaps HTML code that you copied at main step 3 above.

e. Save the article and remember the Joomla content id.

f. Go to the module manager and click on the mod_placehere module.

g. Modify the module parameters, setting the article id to the one create above.

h. Make sure the module is positioned and published.
