Since MobileMe has been shut down users are now finding that their Google Maps widget no longer works. It will show a “MobileMe is Closed” image instead of your actual Google Map as shown;

mobileme is closed

MobileMe is Closed

Fortunately this is an easy issue to fix. Instead of using the Google Maps widget you’ll have to use the HTML Snippet Widget;

Add Google Maps With an HTML Widget

Add Google Maps to your iWeb site With an HTML Widget

  1. Go to https://maps.google.com
  2. Enter your location in the search field
  3. Enter Google Maps Address

    Enter Google Maps Address

    3) Select the “link” button. It looks like a Chain link and is on the left hand side of the window

    Select Link

    4) Copy the code that says “Paste HTML to embed in website” into an HTML Widget in iWeb

    Copy Google Maps Code to HTML Widget

    Copy Google Maps Code to HTML Widget

    And that’s all there is to it. So you can continue to use Google Maps even though MobileMe has been discontinued. You will have to go through your iWeb site and delete all of your Google Maps Widgets and replace them with HTML Widgets.

  8. Thanks for your help on the HTML solution to the closure of MobileMe.

    1. You may want to take note that your website states “30 days left to the closure of MobileMe.” History.

    2. I am looking for a web host for iWeb for someone who has some experience. I am willing to pay for occasional advice on refinement.

    The site is largely built. It is simple, elegant, professional for my wife, a physician.
    No Bold Fonts @64pt, nor wiggles, jiggles, pushes, or sound.
    – 6 pages (including splash)
    – 2 pics
    – some hyperlinks

    3. Rage writes to me that they will not assist in tweeking the site (nor consult).

  10. Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue along with your website in web explorer, would test this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a big component to other folks will pass over your wonderful writing due to this problem.
