For the life of me I can't figure out why I can't load a map into a CSS template I'm trying to customize.

I've placed a fiddle here:

Basically I'm trying to get a map to load into the red DIV Container (called mapBox)

I hope its something small and/or user error!

Thank you!

can you place the code on jsfiddle? – Mapperz Apr 8 '13 at 21:31


var map ='map');


var map ='mapBox');

That doesn't seem to work either - see updated jsfiddle...(I actually had that changed but the changes are stored in the URL it seems) – DPSSpatial Apr 9 '13 at 21:55
This seems to have more to do with JSFiddle than with the problem itself. The code seems to be working fine outside of the fiddle environment. – Kevin R Dyke Apr 9 '13 at 23:00
Strange: it does work in your posted example and when I bring your code down locally it works...yet my project doesn't load the map and the jsfiddle doesn't work! I wonder what' up??? Thank you @kevin for taking a look at this! – DPSSpatial Apr 10 '13 at 14:12
