Yeah if you could share your code that's always a help!

Here's a little video I put together a while ago on the ways you can share your code.

Hey Kelvin,

I haven't used this version of google maps before. So I can't tell you of their advantages or disadvantages...

Regards Andrew

That's fine. I tried the maps that you taught in the videos but end up with a broken image. Any reason why this is,please? Or would a view of my code help? Please let me know

Hi Andrew, I customized the code into locatons.html like you did into the video but I still end up with a broken image.
