Do I need any key or any registration to show maps in my blog


I do not see my gpx file / marker file in the map ?

The file has to be located at the same adress as your blog.
There must be not format tag (like href …) in the shortcode.

Certainement le plugin le plus complet de sa catégorie mais il souffre d'un problème d'ergonomie pour saisir les données de géolocalisation. La nouvelle version des shortcode est moins complète que l'ancienne, on perd des fonctions comme pour faire le geotag de photos. De 3 a 5 étoiles, il n'y a qu'un pas!

first of all - many many thanks for the OSM - the OpenStreetMap-plugin a versatile and very powerful plugin for WordPress. In our case we are using it to manage the street-things that we have on our site. I really have had looked for a very very long time to find such a plugin. I have tested alot of others. But now the search is over. The OSM - the OpenStreetMap-plugin is it! We ve used a lot of mapping plugins to keep track of the navigation-things that we are faced on our project-site. Now i have to confess: This is the best one ive used, wish I had found it earlier. The design: It has a excellent design and one that is continiously and sustainably getting better and better. The plugin developers makes the plugin better and better - month by month. I installed it: Very easy to get started with. Simple, and does what it says it will do without anything getting in the way. The plugin is surprisingly useful and very very featurerich - and really powerful. It can be used in many different scenarios and situations: I suspect we are going to use it for other ideas to map things. I love the bunch of possible things and features that we have with the OSM-Plugin OpenStreetMap, OpenSeaMap, OpenWeatherMap, BaseMap (AT), Stamen, WMS in posts/pages Integration in post / page / widget HTML Popup Marker GPX and KML (incl. upload in Mediathek) the usage: This plugin does exactly what it says in the manual. - Lots of features and easily integrates with other WP features.- And what is one of the nicest thing -.. if it comes to support - The developer is very responsive in the Support section. He helps whereever he can. To sume up: This is just what I was looking for! Excellent piece of work, many thanks. Keep up the great work - and i am pretty sure that you get more and more user and friends all over the globe! It rocks!! - thanks for all you did! -< opensource rocks!! 10 stars from me....!!! i love it

No instructions on how to actually use it in WordPress, and when you finally figure it out, it's just random error messages: "Results from OpenStreetMap Nominatim Error contacting nominatim.openstreetmap.org: execution expired" I was really hoping this would be a viable alternative to Google Maps and all their CC and API bullshit 🙁

... because it is a great alternative to google maps and offers a lot of possibilities. but to be honest: setting it up is quite a nightmare and absolutely not intuitive at all. this part of the pluging really is in need of an overhaul.
