Before you post

Before posting, please search the group to see if someone has already answered your question. You can search from the group homepage.

As you write your post, please consider the following:

  • Be very clear about your question in the subject — it helps those trying to answer your question as well as those who may be looking for information in the future.
  • Give plenty of details in your post to help others understand your problem. Consider including code snippets, logs, or links to screenshots.
  • If you need help with your map, please include a link to an example web page. Most people will not debug errors in your code without a live web page demonstrating the issue. If you find it difficult to host your code online, use a service like jsFiddle.
