How to use this block

First, you’re going to need to get a Google Maps API key, which you can learn more about here. Once you have the key, you’ll need to add it in the Crosswinds Blocks/Framework settings page.

After you’ve added the key, you can go into a post or page and add the Google Maps block. You’ll then need to add in the address for the location you want to show. Once that’s done, set the height of the block and whether the block will cover the height of its container.

Now you’re set to go with the block.
