Google maps embedding broken in 1.8.0.beta8

Looking at the HTML generated, there’s a transparent <div> right above the map iframe that is overlaid on top of the map:

Removing that div in the debugger makes the map work fine.

Confirmed broken in Firefox 52.0 and Chrome 56.0, with several different URLs.

Some more background: I cannot reproduce this on another category. The bug happens under Staff.

Nevermind… I don’t know why it worked once. It consistently doesn’t work now.

Hello… anyone around here? :slight_smile:

Probably not… if anyone else has this issue, you can workaround it by creating a custom CSS via the admin interface and using the following there:

div.maps-onebox > div:first-child {
    z-index: -1;

You enter this both in the first tab and in the mobile one. Save, enable, and be happy.


Testing a maps embed:,-79.4116326,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x882b349dcf25a1b3:0x617cc8c102d6584f!8m2!3d43.6780371!4d-79.4094439?hl=en

Confirmed there is a transparent div that prevents interacting with the map. Any ideas @zogstrip or @techAPJ?


This background might be useful:


This issue was because we recently pushed a security change in which we sanitized the onebox output HTML. Previously that transparent div used to have onClick="style.pointerEvents='none'" attribute but now it’s getting removed by sanitize gem. It seems like sanitize gem does not support whitelisting of onClick attribute.

For the time being I fixed this issue by removing the transparent <div> on top of iframe.

I will see if we can workaround this to add the transparent div back so that Google Maps onebox does not interfere with page scrolling.
