JavaScript Build an Interactive Website Google Maps Integration Adding a Dynamic Map

*HELP* Need some advice for the "Adding a Dynamic Made Code Chellenge"

Hey guys,

So I'm stuck on the Adding a Dynamic Map code challenge.

I have been trying to implement the requirements in the <script> tag to no avail.

Am I to add a map id in the CSS section of the HTML or is this purely a JavaScript thing, or am I no where near the ballpark in what I am trying to do? I'm a little confused.

Anyway here is what I have done that of course presents and error.

<script type="text/javascript">
      $("#map").prepend('<div id="map"></div>');
        var mapOptions = {};

        var mapElement;
        var theMap;

Any help of this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance

Stu :)

Your div should go between the first body tag and the first script tag.

  <div id="map"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript"

Hey Chase,

I think I needed a break, I went back in for another go and actually read the question correctly this time. What a spaz I am :S
