A while ago I described a nice way to integrate Google maps in the JAlbum Chameleon skin. One of the readers of that blog entry tried it on JAlbum version 7.4.1 and too my surprise it did not work. It appeared that the way I was retrieving the two extra variables from the JAlbum album project file was not forward compatible with version 7.4.1 (I developed it using JAlbum 7.3). With some help in the Chameleon skin forum I've now fixed it.

To use it you can still follow the description in the original post, but use the following two files:

Also the names of the variables in the JAlbum project file have been renamed:
# The root where the webalbum will be hosted
# The location of the HTML page that displays the map and
# has the Google Maps code in it
# This location is bound to the Google Maps API key.

    Hi Gero,
    thanks for your great work. I am in the process of adapting it to Jalbum 8.0 and the current chameleon. Only the user variables are still a problem for me to retrieve, but other than that it works great. See http://www.wasser-muenchen.de/album/200805_Batti_Kalmunai/index.html

    Nice to see that it will be incorporated in the standard distribution of the skin. A good reason for me to upgrade when it's available ;-)

    Great work, I used the templates and updated to work with Jalbum 8.0.x. It would be nice to have this option supported in the official skin indeed!
