Create, display and share routes guests or admins have drawn in the mapping tool.
The mapper has been professional styled but there are so many themes out there it may not look perfect with your theme out of the box. You have full control over the theme by editing the css file in the style section or hosting it on your own website. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your page and I can adjust styles to fit with your website.
Yep, checkout the bottom of the api documentation page (link below) for how to get valid codes. I see a lot of people entering, for example - 'australia' into the area, or 'running' into the activities which won't work, those fields are expecting numbers like '2' or '3' - see the docs or email/forum msg me to ask.
If the mapper does not look right then you need to change either your theme, mine or both. By default you reference the theme on the api website - http://api.onesportevent.com/api/style/v1/css/osestyle.css but there is also a local copy which will be in the path where you installed the plugin, e.g. http://yourwebsite.com/wp-content/plugins/one-sport-route-mapper/css/osestyle.css
You can use the settings to turn off the sidebars. Alternatively, you can probably use a wordpress page template that does not have a sidebar to get more space. Edit the page the theme is on and change the template if you need to.
To edit your web theme go into 'Appearance -> Editor ->' and shrink/expand either or your website themes css. Be sure to take a backup copy
To edit the mapper theme go into 'Plugins -> Editor -> [select route mapper in combobox on right]' and edit the css file, again, be sure to take a backup copy
Sure thing; by default I'm using the free open source maps, which I have to say are excellent given it's an open source project. If you enter a BING map key you can use the Microsoft Maps which are very nice!
Depends on your usage - at the time of writing they have free map keys which you probably qualify for.. but go read Microsofts terms and conditions for BING, there is a link to BING from inside the plug-in
The default HTML fallback option uses google maps. When I saw the Silverlight BING option I was blown away how much better and smoother it was so thats the default. It does have a one-time download which is a bit slower, but then your golden!
Yes you can make the plug in show just see a sub-set of routes for a given area that you want to see.
If your visitor saves a route (optional) then it is saved into the database and the routes can be seen by everyone. All sites using the plug-in benefit because the existing routes make your site look active and used, which is critical for new websites. You can enable wordpress login integration with a single checkbox so visitors can can see their personal workout statistics and route statistics which they return. You can also optionally emailed a permalink when users save routes.
Nope. But donations are welcomed.. encouraged even! If you want your own logo on the mapper I can do this for a small cost. If you turn on the permalink email the email gets sent from onesportevent.com with a back to our sponser fitnessmentor.com, but this can be turned on/off.
Initially I didn't have one, however I realised I then have no way of stopping a website if they are abusing the system in some way, or leeching more bandwidth than my mortgate can afford!
