    Hi,
    I havent tried it by myself, but I think Mapbox.com supports custom images as basemaps. You could create an account there, create your basemap there and then add the map to your wordpress plugin instance (can be configured in settings/map defaults).
    regards,
    Robert

    PS: as I give support for free, I’d appreciate your review at http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/leaflet-maps-marker 😉

    Hi Robert, thanks for your super fast answer. I’m going to rate your plugin as soon as possible. Unfortunately mapbox allows to upload mbtiles files only 🙁

    you’re welcome 🙂
    I am sure there is a way to convert an image to a basemap – try searching leaflet-forum at leafletjs.com for example (and please let me know if you find something)
    If you found something, you can add custom basemap for example, which has more available options (like “enable continuous world” which is for indoor maps or images for example).

    Hey Robert, I made it, tomorrow i will write down what I have done. I just have to fix some little visualization issues but my map is there 🙂

    Ok, I asked the same thing on leaflet forum as you suggested, they had beautiful examples on how to build such maps, even if they use ImageOverlay class which I think not yet supported by this plugin (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/leaflet-js/EQy6J5wE3Dw)

    So I found a very good app called MapTiler. It basically can generate basemap and layers for almost any kind of map, even if you need an API key to make it work with google or yahoo. But i didn’t need all that stuff (if you want to know more about that app I suggest you to test it because it has been a perfect companion for your plugin for me), so I created a simple raster map with no geolocalization. The output it generated is a directory tree (Zoom-level/X/Y) and a simple html file to navigate it. I uploaded the whole folder to my wordpress website and I changed a custom basemap URL of your plugin to the folder {z}/{x}/{y}.png (I omitted the {s} tag, I don’t know if I made a mistake). Then i set tms to true and… that’s all…

    Now… the map I uploaded is very small compared to the original map, so I should find a way to avoid all those “Map not found” tiles around my basemap, and avoid navigation outside the map… but it works 🙂
