Support » Plugin: GPX Viewer » Categories empty, file list empty, uploading works

  • Hello,

    At the moment, I try your plugin on a testing website. It is running on WordPress 5.2.2 with PHP 7.2 and use https.

    I installed and activated the plugin, got a MapQuest Key and adjusted all settings. I changed to GPX-Files and wanted to upload gpx files.

    First, the category is empty. How to create one? Does it share the category with some other function (like articles)?

    I tried to upload several files. All of them were sucessful uploaded. It seems to me, reducing and MapQuest Online services are working. However, I don’t find them at GPX-Files. I checked with FTP in the folder “uploads\gpx” and all files are still there.

    At the moment, I’m not able to see any files or to attach one to an article. Please for help.

    regards, Andyt

    in my WP-installations there is a default category called “General” resp. “Allgemein”. It can be seen in the admin page “Articles -> Categories” and should appear at least in the category list on top of the GPX files admin page.

    Uploaded gpx files are then stored in ~wp-content/upload/gpx/general/ and can be included into an article with:

    echo gpx_view(array(‘src’ => $filepath
    [, ‘title’ => $track_name]
    [, ‘color’ => $track_color]
    [, ‘width’ => $track_width] ));

    where $filepath = <absolute path>/wp-content/uploads/gpx/genereal/<file>.gpx


    Hello, thank you for your answer.

    In my case there is no default category at gpx file admin page. I use also german language. Therefore no “General”, but also no “Allgemein”. There are several categories for articles including “Allgemein”.


    I have the same issue. No category available to select.

    I also added the path you described – which was not leading to let me select the category.

    Is this caused as I’m using an Multisite installation ?

    I don’t use Multisite installation and have still the same error. It seems to me, the reason is different to that fact.
