What happens[edit]

Microsoft map not shown on Mapstraction special page.

When it happens[edit]

When I select "Microsoft" map and click "OK" on Mapstraction special page.

What should happen[edit]

Microsoft map should be shown as Yahoo map and Google map.

How to fix it[edit]

It seems that Microsoft ended their support for old version of their script.

Current : script tag in the XHTML source of Special:Mapstraction page, when "maptype=microsoft"

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/v3/mapcontrol.js"> </script>

New : script tag in Example Code of "Mapstraction - microsoft demo" page [1]

<script src="http://dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/mapcontrol.ashx?v=6"></script>

I think that the values used to generate the tags should be modified, though I'm not sure since I couldn't find the source code of Mapstraction MediaWiki extension. ;-) -- Tatata 07:18, 9 March 2009 (EDT)
