    Hey peeps.

    I am looking for a directions tool, so when someone puts in their postcode or address, they will see the exact route they need to take.

    Is there a plugin that does this? if not, how could I do this?

    Cheers

    I've never seen such a thing, but I imagine if you found someone familiar with the Google Maps API you could have something like this put together easily enough. Might be something worth looking into.

    I'm not sure. But for my websites I just go to google maps. Search till I find my business. Click on it and once inside the listing you can click on the Paperclip and choose embed into website. I then put that code on my contact page. The listing is highlighted with a marker and when clicked on will say directions to this business.

    It's so sweet and simple I've never thought to do anything else really. And you can put a custom width and height by jut changing the HTML code. I believe it's in the first line of the code. You can also put it in a widget as well. By using the custom text widget.

    I realize you may already know this. Just went ahead and said it anyway just incase someone was searching and found this thread.
