HTML with marker

Hi All,
I want to link an OSM map on a webpage with a marker for a mate’s restaurant.
When I embed the HTML

View Larger Map

It brings the map up fine, but without a marker.
I really want to use OSM for this, but it seems that it can’t do it.

Any clues please?

I have been involved with OSM for many years and really don’t want to follow the sheep and use Google maps, so any help is appreciated.


I have a similar thing but using the open mapquest tiles instead. I’ve got “;marker=” with the lat,lon after the “;layer=mapquest”. I’m guessing it will work with mapnik layer too but haven’t tried.

Thanks for the reply.
I tried it with mapnik and it kills the page completely.
Then I tried Mapquest, but same result.
On a positive note though, the mapquest layer puts the English text as well as the Thai, which is much better as this restaurant is aimed mainly at Westerners, so thanks for that.

Would you mind posting the HTML of what you have please?


Here you go:

<iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src=",34.7812,-119.0945,34.8394&layer=mapquest&marker=34.81261,-119.12715" style="border: 1px solid black">
<br />
<a href="">View Larger Map</a>

Thanks for your help mate.
Oddly, the HTML generated from the website suddenly works…

View Larger Map

Subtley different from what it gave before…
A glitch in the Matrix perhaps.

Thanks again for replying, it’s sorted now.
