My store sell products of other stores and I would like to know how can i set a map, from Google Maps for example, in product detail page like the image below?

e.g. image

Thanks.

  • Does every product page need such a map? Does the map have to point to the same location for all products of your store? Please clarify your question. – ForMat Dec 16 '14 at 13:00

Go to google maps and enter your desired location now click on settings button which is in bottom right enter image description here

select share or embeded maps->embed map option select your desired size copy the <iframe> code.

Now goto CMS->static Blocks create a new block and paste the <iframe> code in content section.

now call this static block in your product page using catalog.xml file in this way

<reference name="content">
<block type="cms/block" name="your_block_name">
  <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>your_block_id</block_id>
  </action>
</block>
</reference> 
  • It's working. Thanks dude :) Just one more question. Is it possible to create a attribute and then set this attribute on product detail page? Thanks again. – Michel Dec 16 '14 at 15:33
  • No it is not possible. – dh47 Dec 17 '14 at 4:24
  • Yes, it's possible. I created un attribute that call "maps". Then i added the code: <?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, nl2br($_product->getmaps()), 'maps') ?> into view.phtml file (app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml) and worked. :) – Michel Dec 18 '14 at 13:36
