Want to show the world where you've been? A travel map is the perfect tool. You can mark locations you've visited, locations where you're going and locations you can advise on.
Tripadvisor offers an easy tool for doing this, which you can then embed into your 350pages site.
The first thing to do is create your Travel Map. Sign up for an account at tripadvisor.com, and then from the horizontal menu, click the Travel Map button. Here, you'll be able to scroll around using the map to get near to places where you have been, and they will appear in the menu to the right for you to "check". You can also add a place by typing in the name at the top of the map. More help is available from Tripadvisor's help documentation. Once you are happy with the look of your map, click 'save and continue' and on the next screen select the 'Get The Code' button at the bottom of the screen.
Select one or both of the two options to display the travel map and destinations and then highlight and copy the code offered.
Then, in the 350pages editor for your webpage, go to the Object above or below where you wish to place the Travel map and select the Insert option on the Object's editor bar. From the menu select HTML snippet, and click on above or below (or replace if you want to swap the currently selected object for your travel map) and this will bring up the HTML editor.
Paste the code for the travel map into the box, and if neccessary you can also adjust the width and height in pixels of the snippet. Click Save, and the travel map should appear as you want it. Save and publish the webpage as you normally would so that everyone on the web can see it too.
If you have a free account, you can still insert the HTML by using the HTML tab in the paragraph editor.
