We're having some little database hiccups. We're taking care of it right now. We apologize for the hassle.
Hi. Love Platial. Well, I use to. Then all of a sudden all the great customisation that was possible was restricted. The neat sidebar mapkit that once took pride of place on my site, now looks awful and I, like many other forum readers are thinking of removing it.
My gripe is that you´ve changed a lot without really giving any feedback to your users. Why have you changed the layout of the sidebar mapkit? Why can´t we customize? Time to stop concentrating on the (impressive) Slider and provide some answers.
I write this comment in the hope that you guys over at Platial will listen to likes of Me and Torben (http://blog.schreiter.info/index.php/how-to-customize-your-platial-mapkit-using-css-important-rules/).

Hi guys. I commented on your blog, but thought I'd say something here, too.
The iframe on the mapkit was a solution to a slew of problems caused by having to generate a Google maps api key for every domain. It was causing the MapKit to fail in several ways. Some blogs have two domains, for example. Sometimes it's just a typo in the url that causes the installation to throw an error. Anyway, Google Maps api key errors were one of the most pressing problems we needed to solve for MapKit.
Linking to your own css will be great. We'll build that in to our advanced options as soon as we can. Right now we are still in bug hunting and fixing mode. We're a very small team with a very long to-do list!
