Issue setting map markers using JQuery

Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance


Marker in google maps - code challenge: Set the query parameter of "markers" to equal the URL encoded address of "622 E Washington Street, Suite 240, Orlando, FL 32801"


    <img src="http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/staticmap?key=AIzaSyAn8fk75K8kCdW6pQ4B7yoBHJNrUbleieY&size=400x300&sensor=false&markers=622+E+Washington+Street+Suite+240+Orlando+FL+32801" alt="622 E Washington Street, Suite 240, Orlando, FL 32801">

The error message is: "The 'markers' value is incorrect".

Ok got it working appears the problem was the commas, i.e. 622+E+Washington+Street,+Suite+240,+Orlando+FL+32801

by the way ... I could not copy and paste my successful code because the pop up success message does not allow returning to the code challenge answer. Is this by design? Sometimes, I'm quite pleased with what I've managed and would like to save code snippets.

sorry to jump on someone else's thread but I'l having the same issue. Everything looks fine:

But I can't get passed the 5th step as the "The 'markers' value is incorrect"

TIA, Darren

Fixed it, it was a comma again or lack there of after Orlando
