Help with getting set up

Getting started

Before you can started using this add-on on your website, there are a few steps you must complete:

1. Install concrete5 on your server

If you've not done so already, go ahead and grab the latest copy of concrete5 and get it installed on your webserver (local or remote). Full instructions on how best to do this can be found on https://www.concrete5.org/.

2. Install the Add-on

This add-on can be installed in one of 2 ways:

  1. Connect your site to the marketplace
    Check out this guide on how to connect your site to the marketplace - http://www.concrete5.org/marketplace/how_to_instal...
  2. Manually
    Once your concrete5 install is ready to rock, simply unzip the add-on and place it in the root packages directory within your install. Next, log in to your website and then click on Extend concrete5 from under the Dashboard menu. You will now see the package awaiting install; click Install. After several seconds a message should appear telling you the package has been successfully installed.

3. Using the Add-on

Usage is very simple. Simply add the Sassy Maps block to your page. You will be presented with a preview of available maps, simplly click the one you wish to use. It should be highlighted with a border.

Sassy Maps uses Google Maps V3 API. You will need to add an API key, it is free, and you can get a key here.

The only other mandatory option to set is the map center. Simply enter an address, postcode, zip code or coordinates if you have them. 

Optionally you may set a map marker using the same approach, or leave it blank for no marker.

Sassy Maps is limited to one use per page, and is disabled in edit mode.
