When I input the feed at feedvalidator ( http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.deerparkmeriden.com%2FDeer_Park_North_Nursing_Home%2FHoudahGeo.kml )

I was informed that the feed does not validate.

Also when I checked for http://maps.google.com/?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.deerparkmeriden.com%2F%2FDeer_Park_North_Nursing_Home%2FHoudahGeo.kml I was told that it did not comply.

So it appears that I am unable to create a "Google Gadget" as a result from the tools at http://www.nearby.org.uk/gadget-for-kml.php

I am a newbie at this so perhaps I am missing something

Hi!

These errors are all minor. HoudahGeo is still using a couple of KML attributes which have been deprecated in the most recent version of KML.

It seems however that you have not yet uploaded your images to your server.

Hi Pierre

Good to know that the depricated code will make no difference.

I am having trouble getting the directory/root name/ image location path straight with the save function...so the images are not showing up properly....

Hi Mike,

Your images should be at the following location:

AH...I see for some reason the KML is missing the .com in the image url.

Hmm...now how did I do that?

Hi Pierre

Still struggling...

I redid the KML and posted:
http://www.deerparkmeriden.com/nursing-home-topeka/Deer_Park_North_Nursing_Home/HoudahGeo.kml

It appears that I now have the thumb nails and images in the correct spots:
http://www.deerparkmeriden.com/nursing-home-topeka/Deer_Park_North_Nursing_Home/thumbnails/DSC_3101.jpg

Yet when I load into Google Maps ( http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=111082166288111833221.000453d069b5209192367&ll=39.159033,-95.572021&spn=0.001252,0.002114&z=19 ) , the KML file loads but it has trouble finding the images...when I check the Google Map entry the url for the thumbnail is wrong:
http://www.deerparkmeriden/nursing-home-topeka/Deer_Park_North_Nursing_Home/images/DSC_3101.jpg

It is missing the .com which I thought I had correctly in the KML file.

Is there something obvious that I am doing incorrectly?

Mike

Hi!

My guess is you still have an outdated KML in Google Maps. When I try it, it works just fine:

[URL=http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http:%2F%2Fwww.deerparkmeriden.com%2Fnursing-home-topeka%2FDeer_Park_North_Nursing_Home%2FHoudahGeo.kml&ie=UTF8&ll=39.166271,-95.589981&spn=0.166631,0.255432&t=h&z=12]http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=http:%2F%2Fwww.deerparkmeriden.com%2Fnursing-home-topeka%2FDeer_Park_North_Nursing_Home%2FHoudahGeo.kml&ie=UTF8&ll=39.166271,-95.589981&spn=0.166631,0.255432&t=h&z=12[/URL]
