Do I need any key or any registration to show maps in my blog


I do not see my gpx file / marker file in the map ?

The file has to be located at the same adress as your blog.
There must be not format tag (like href …) in the shortcode.

You don't need any API key. You don't need any money. Just add the plugin and you can enjoy professional map service in your own website! It is even supported in China! Since Google Maps are blocked there.

Total klasse!! Es lässt sich vielfältig konfigurieren und sieht super aus. Darüber hinaus ist der Support schnell, freundlich und kompetent. Bin begeistert und möchte mich an dieser Stelle noch einmal bedanken!

The interface is clunky and not at all intuitive. Setting up maps is so time consuming that I cannot in all good conscience charge client for all my time trying to figure out how to configure the confusing number of options and what they mean.
