About: Release History

0.7 : Polished and tested ( 10/23/10 )
0.1 : First release ( 5/2/10 )


    // If you wish to use the default map, 
    // but just want to change the center
    // ****NOTE: This gets overwritten if a map is passed in (see next).
    center: { lat: 36.915, lng: -95.225 },
    // Your own map that you created with the Google V3 API
    map: myGoogleMap,
    // An unlimited number of markers may be put on the map.
    // Add latitudes and longitudes for where they should be placed,
    // a title for each marker,
    // and a content string for their corresponding info window.
    // ex: [ { lat : 35.289, lng : -94.756, title : 'woot', content : '<div class="iw-content"><p>Hello World!!</p></div>' }, 
    //   { lat : 35.289, lng : -94.756, title : 'woot', content : '<div class="iw-content"><p>Hello World!!</p></div>' } ]
    markers: [ { lat : 35.289, 
                 lng : -94.756, 
                 title: 'woot', 
                 content : '<div class="iw-content"><p>Hello World!!</p></div>' } ],
    // Custom image for the marker
    markerIcon: 'images/google-maps-icon.png',
    // The shadow for the marker image
    markerShadow: 'images/google-maps-shadow.png',
    // The info window background image (includes its own shadow if one is needed)
    windowImage: 'images/google-maps-infobox.png',
    // The close image/button that goes on the info window
    closeImage: 'images/google-maps-close.png',
    // Offsets for the position of the info window
    // relative to the marker
    offsetVertical: -226,
    offsetHorizontal: -20,
    // Width and Height of the info window background image
    iwWidth: 208,
    iwHeight: 165

TIP: If all you need is a custom pin and no custom info window, don't use this plugin. That is too easy with the normal Google API (see my attachInfo function).
