    Love the plugin and its been working for months. Upgraded to the latest version and the map just shows the Google World map view and doesn't display of the other graphics (e.g. elevation) nor does it seem to process the GPX file. I use links like these:

    title="blat.gpx" href="http://www.mywebsite.com/blog/gps/blat.gpx">blat.gpx [deltazoom=-2;gpxelevationcolor=green]

    The a tag has been removed to show the full text.

    Help appreciated!

    Perhaps there is a problem with the new use of curl instead of fopen if the function exists. If curl is installed to open files, the plugin uses curl (because of security issues)...

    The problem is, that your area to download the gpx file is password protected. Install version 1.12 and add username and password to the url of these gpx files like http://testusr:testpwd@www.somedomain.com/somegpxfile.gpx - curl always opens file as an external viewer!

    I'm having a similar issue. I'm trying to display bike ride maps on my site. I have both the kml and gpx files from the ride, but really want to display the gpx, speed and altitude data. After much fiddling, I have the kml file displaying the route, but cannot get the gpx file to parse. I just get the highest level world map. I went as far as searching here, and downloading a gpx from someones working site to rule out the tool that created mine. I have disabled all other plugins with no success. Any other ideas?

    Running WP 2.8.x
    PHP 5.2.x

    Site is here: http://pinards.com/wp2/

    Thanks!

    Just a followup. I have this working now. I had a Modsecurity rule that was blocking the access to the gpx file. It didn't like the USER-AGENT (or lack of) that was coming from the request. It was also interfering with my Post via email script.
