Hello smart people!

I am a real beginner at saleforce and just cannot seem to get a google map to appear on my custom object.  I cannot for the life of me figure out what I have done wrong.  Do I need a zip code field?

Here is what I have:

<apex:page standardController="Event_Manager__c">


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

  var myOptions = {
    zoom: 15,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
    mapTypeControl: false

  var map;
  var marker;

  var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
  var address = "{!Event_Manager__c.Street_Address__c}, " + "{!Event_Manager__c.City__c}";

  var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
    content: "<b>{!Event_Manager__c.Name}</b><br>{!Event_Manager__c.Street_Address__c}<br>{!Event_Manager__c.City__c}<br>"

  geocoder.geocode( { address: address}, function(results, status) {
    if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK && results.length) {
      if (status != google.maps.GeocoderStatus.ZERO_RESULTS) {

        //create map
        map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), myOptions);

        //center map

        //create marker
        marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: results[0].geometry.location,
            map: map,
            title: "{!Event_Manager__c}"

        //add listeners
        google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
        google.maps.event.addListener(infowindow, 'closeclick', function() {


    } else {
      $('#map').css({'height' : '15px'});
      $('#map').html("Oops! {!Event_Manager__c.Name}'s billing address could not be found, please make sure the address is correct.");

  function resizeIframe() {
    var me = window.name;
    if (me) {
      var iframes = parent.document.getElementsByName(me);
      if (iframes && iframes.length == 1) {
        height = document.body.offsetHeight;
        iframes[0].style.height = height + "px";


#map {
  font-family: Arial;
  line-height:normal !important;


<div id="map"></div>

Thank you in advance anyone who takes the time to look at this

I've completed the Recruiting App exercises.  My App is up and running.  But I have two issues or bugs that I cannot resolve.  Could someone help me or guide me to a solution?


Problem 1 - Candidate Map not showing up.  I have everything in place but all I seem to get is "Loading Map".  The map never appears.  I've retraced my steps 4-5 times and I don't know what I've missed.


Problem 2 - Careers Site open positions not showing up.  The page header is showing up but not the open positions.  I am thinking that this has something to do with the last step of Granding Public Access Settings.  Something seems off in the steps in the book vs. what I am able to do on screen.


If someone can help me or point me towards a fix, it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks - MK
