What's Happened to Google Maps?

Has anyone managed to embed a Google map into a website lately? I'm damned if I can manage it. I've embedded dozens in the past, now it just seems so convoluted I can't follow it. Can someone give me a clue what to do?

RE: What's Happened to Google Maps?

This is for the classic maps. I found a tutorial on YouTube that steps through the process on the new platform, which is really unintuitive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dHeWnhCmUA

Thanks for the interest though clown

RE: What's Happened to Google Maps?

It's pretty easy actually. Search to what you want in the map, then click on the little gear icon in the lower right. Click on "Share and embed map". On the box that pops up, click on "Embed Map". Then select the size, small, medium, large, or custom size. This will give you the code for an iframe with the map in it. Just put that on your page and it's there.

There are more options if you follow the You Tube tutorial.
