OS OpenMap Centre and Zoom - how?? (2 posts)

    Am I missing something here?

    How do you tell the [osmap] shortcode where the map is centred and what the zoom is?
    There are options for width, height, color, gpx file etc but nothing I can find for the most fundamental - centre and zoom.

    If the answer is "in the gpx file" then where do I get a gpx file? Web-Map builder is a handy tool for setting centre, zoom and adding markers and routes - but there's no option to output a gpx file.

    Putting Web-Map builder output between raw tags in a post works fine - but I'm hoping the plugin can make it a bit more end user friendly.

    Sorry somehow the zoom= parameter for the shortcode was lost from the documentation. Just start with zoom=4 and try a bit of trial and error. I am assuming that you want to centre on a location but without a marker, I don't think that can be done at the moment, I'll add a centre parameter in the next release. if you want to try making gpx files I recommend maptogpx.com

    Please feel free to ask any more questions.
