A reader recently asked:

"How do I change the default map hyperlink address set in eGuide. It is currently set to Yahoo US as default. Here in the UK we need to set it to a local Map directory. Where would I change this map setting, and what syntax would I use?"

And here's a helpful tip from reader Robert Shera:

To change the map setting, the file that needs to be edited is:


You need to find the following lines in the file:

    <a title="{$ShowMapLabel}" target="_blank"
    <xsl:value-of select="$MapLabel"/>

Then you can change them to use a different map source. Here in Australia I'm using www.whereis.com. I checked the URL I got when I did a search for an address. Then I modified the lines to accommodate it, pulling the appropriate values from the eDirectory attributes. For example:

    <a title="{$ShowMapLabel}" target="_blank"
    <xsl:value-of select="$MapLabel"/>
