Fantastic. Replaced a no-more-working former plugin

Thanks for this wonderful plugin. I had to replace 200+ posts on my blog with this plugin. This one is beutiful and has many advanced options. I was formerly using ATLSoft’s Google Maps GPX viewer, which is no longer developed and working due to the fact, that google now requires a API key for its maps.

Different colors for different tracks?

I really like this plug-in. I got quite a few tracks now but I’m missing a feature that is really important to me.. I would like to drop 3 to 4 tracks into a single view so people got an idea where I’ve been driven but they are all the same color. I would like to see an option where I can select a color for each track in the view. Mapsource (and maybe basecamp as well) has an option to set the color and the gpx-file will have the color information. WP GPX does not use it. Eg.: http://boxer.gs/2015/07/4-dagen-luxembourg-eiffel/

And would it be possible to add initial zoomlevel. I always need to zoom in once and then it’s how I like it..

Anyway – great addon..


the best plugin i could find for displaying gpx tracks, comes with great options for customizing.
it had to be hacked to work with maps in bootstrap 3 panels, but as far as i am aware this wouldn’t work for any other plugin out of the box, so that’s not a negative point.
my only suggestion is to make the track list in the back-end sortable or at least sort them alphabetical by default, as it is a pain to find a specific track if you got a large number of them.

Doesn’t work in the new version of wp

I used this plugin for the last time in july 2016. Today I uploaded a track, but nothing showed on my website.
I uninstalled and re-installed the plugin, but it doesn’t work.
Before the uninstall I saw nothing appear, after the reinstall I see only a big world, but no tracks.
Please update the plugin and let it works again.
