[pmwiki-users] Looking for Gmap fix

Hello, yesterday I wrote the following.

And a couple of hours later I noticed all my maps were working again! :)
Somehow Google reverted their decision to stop supporting the V2 API.

Please ignore what I wrote yesterday, problem solved (by now...)

I am still desperately looking for a fix for the GMAP recipe.

The problem is that I have 100+ pages with lines like

[[ GMap:ll=52.357,4.865&z=15&t=k | Ooievaarsnest in het Vondelpark ]]

Changing all these pages to match with another recipe is no option.
Petko's suggested solution to use Site.InterMap and in it add
GMap: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=$1
does not work.

After a lot of experimenting I came up with a solution that is satifactory:

| [-''Ooievaarsnest in het Vondelpark''-]%%

(Note the trailing 'format=.png' which is added to trick pmwiki to think
this is a png file!)

I thought about using sed on the sources, but that is too risky and
would makes reverting impossible if Petko would come up with a fix for Gmap.

I think the best would be something with Markup, but couldn't get it
working right:

Markup("gm", "directives", "/GMap:ll=something here,something
here&z=15&t=k/", "<img


Can somebody help, my site is totally dependent of Gmaps, and statistics
are tumbling down...
