Go into the editor, left toolbar - "Add" -> "Widgets" -> "Google Maps".
When you've dragged it into the editor, double click on it to start your navigation, and use the inner navigation bars and buttons to reach your address, or simply use the mouse to drag and double click for zooming options.
To set your address and add a marker -> Go to Address on the property panel on the right side of the editor. You can also add text to the marker.

      Please provide us with the code of the map you chose, and also a link to it so we can further assist.

      Also, please try using the embed code Google gives you using the HTML widget, and let us know if it helped.

    Hey adventpoint

    This means that your Google Map is not sitting inside an individual Page. It is easy to fix:

    Open your site in the editor
    > Click on the item that is appearing on all Pages
    > Drag it inside the Page your want it to appear in - you will know it is inside the page when the page turns yellow and you see small yellow arrows on each side of the page border:

    Please note that if you do not place your component correctly in the Page, it will be seen on all of your Pages.

    For more information about Pages, click here.

    How can I paste the google map to just one page on my site?  When I insert it on one page it shows up on all the pages.

    Hey brianandaileen

    Please note that this thread is in the Flash forum, and applies to Flash sites only.


    To add a Google Map using the HTML app, simply get the code from Google Maps and place it in the app. 

    The code can be fetched from the Link option on Google Maps:


    I hope it helps! Please let us know should you require any further assistance.

    Hi Gabriel,

    How could I add a map from Google Maps directly?
    I can't seem to find the "link button" you are pertaining?

    First, congratulations! 

    Unfortunately it's not possible to define a custom zoom to your map using our widget.

    However, you can try embedding a map directly from Google Maps (just click the link button, and then embed code) but please note we cannot provide assistance for third party code.

    hi, I am working on my wedding website here in wix. 

    I would like to set the map zoom default to 1000 ft because a text label overlaps on my target

    when using the default zoom. I don't want my guests to be confused.

    Is this possible to tinker?

    @ yourtradingjourney,


    Unfortunately, you cannot delete the pin if you have added an address. The description box can be removed by clicking the X in the box on the live site.


    Your map is set to Map dragging, you should be able to drag the map.

    I've noticed that you're using an older version of Internet Explorer, this could be the reason.


    Please make sure to update your browser to the latest version available and to try other updated browsers in an attempt to try and isolate the issue.


    HTML5 is a new web technology and older, outdated browser versions do not fully support this.



    While working on your Wix site, your computer and browser stores various information. This build up of information can sometimes cause conflict.

    Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.


    Let us know how it went and which browsers and versions you've tested.

    On my website at: http://yourtradingjourney.wix.com/team#!businesses---ealing/c1u34 I have two issues:

    1) I cannot delete the description box and red pin as I dont need a pin/box. Any ideas?

    2) I can't drag the map to the part of the map that I want. When I try to drag it just moves the whole map itself.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.
