In the dashboard, click on WP GPX Maps on the menu on the left (see Fig 1). Here, you will find a list of all the maps you have previously uploaded. The maps will be generated from a GPX file that you can upload.
The GPX file can be downloaded from a route-planning website, or from a sat-nav, or maybe downloaded from someone else’s website, and can be of a route that you plan to ride or of a ride that you have completed.
To upload a file, click on the Upload…. button near the top.
This will open the File Upload dialog. Navigate to a GPX file, select it and click on the Open button (see Fig 2).
(If you have a file in one of the many other formats used for mapping, there are many websites that will convert it to .gpx format for free.)
This should take you to the listing where your newly uploaded file should be displayed (see Fig 3).
To display the map in a post, you will need to copy and paste the shortcode (everything between and including the [ & ]) into the post. First highlight it (see Fig 4) then copy it (press CTRL & C).
Put the cursor in your post where you want the map to be displayed and insert (press SHIFT & INS or CTRL & V) the shortcode (see Fig 5). Save the post by clicking the Update button, then view it by clicking the link at the top.
The map should be displayed in the post (see Fig 6), and, if you scroll down the page, you should see….
….the profile of the route (see Fig 7). You can, of course, zoom the map with the + & – buttons top-left, and pan by dragging the map with the mouse.
