    G’day, the plugin doesn’t handle KML itself, it merely loads the files via the Google Maps API. See here for the limitations the API has with KML:

    Strange – when I open the KML file in Google Earth, it displays correctly. If I upload the KML to a Fusion Table, it displays correctly.

    It does not seem to display correctly within the WP Flexible Map KML. Perhaps I am doing something wrong.

    OK, if you can get it working OK that way, maybe you can import it to Google Maps and display from there. See this thread:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-wp-flexible-map-embeding-kml-directly-from-google-maps?replies=4

    To simplify things, I uploaded another KML file that contained nothing more than a single placemark, and even that won’t display correctly. The label for the icon is blank, even though it is labelled in the KML.

    The plugin isn’t following the <lookat> parameters either, so the zoom level is incorrect in the map.

    Is the plugin not capable of displaying the name or label by default from a KML file?

    Thanks for your help!

    As per my first reply, it’s the Google Maps API that is restricting you. However, are you saying that you can load your map into a Fusion Table and everything works OK? If so, maybe it’s time I added a way to load a map from a Fusion Table…

    Hi there Iv remapped the world to follow a system that runs alongside a project I’m working on they’ve all been reworked what i need to know is.
    1. Can you load kmls form a source ex: wp-content.
    2. Does it display polygon layer
    3. Do they keep elements as mine have tone change to roll over effect and custom balloons, link to File downloads
    4. is there a toggle tab

    G’day,

    1. KMLs can be anywhere they can be loaded over HTTP from the Internet (i.e. they can’t be on a private intranet server as Google’s servers need to see them)
    2. I think so, if I understand you; see Raritan Headwaters Watershed Map for example
    3. Per the FAQ, see Google Maps support for KML and KML Elements Supported in Google Maps for details on what is supported
    4. …? I don’t know what that means; can you explain further?

    cheers,
    Ross
