FAQ

How do I add a map to a post?
  1. Insert the [gpxpress] shortcode into your post where you want to display the map. Use the ‘src’ parameter to specify the URL of the GPX track you want to display.
  2. Use the optional ‘width’ and ‘height’ parameters to give the width and height of the map in pixels.
  3. Use the optional ‘showstart’ and ‘showfinish’ parameters to display a marker at the start and/or finish of a track.

Eg: [gpxpress src=http://www.example.com/my_file.gpx width=600 height=400 showstart=true showfinish=false].

You can set the default values for track colour, width, height and start/finish markers in the plugin settings.

I don’t have a GPX file handy, do you have one I can try?

If you just insert the [gpxpress] shortcode without any ‘src’ parameter a default track will be used.
