      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for all the help and this great forum. I have learned so much here!

      I am still researching a way to put an external map into a page, for that page only.

      I would like to call a second WordPress site’s DB, which also uses Mappress, then use a mashup shortcode to show a map on the first website. I was thinking to add PHP to connect to the DB then use the shortcode?

      It would be super if the Mappress widget could do that!!

      Thanks much!
      Kelly

        Hi Kelly,

        I don’t think there’s an easy way to do that. I assume you want to show a mashup from the POIs in the other database?

        If you just want to show a map (or mashup) from site #2, then you could perhaps use an iframe. Embed an iframe in a page on site #1 with its source pointing to a post/page in site #2. In site #2 use a post template that doesn’t have a header/footer/sidebar, to show just the map.
