WordPress OpenStreetMap plugin


OSM is a wordpress plugin that deals with geo data. Simply wordpress shortcode has to be used within your post or page to:

  • insert an OSM map with tracks and markers into your posts and pages
  • add geo data info to your post and pages
  • visualize data from other plugins (eg. for geocaching)

There are some samples how to use this plugin, you might need a combination of different samples, simply take the shortcode arguments you need from each sample and put it into your shortcode for the map.

Installation and upgrade

1.) download the plugin to your local machine
2.) unpack the plugin and upload the osm directory with FTP to /content/plugins
3.) activate the plugin in <Plugins> at admin area
4.) happy mapping ;-)

Do not use „automatically upgrade“ if you stored personal files (gpx, txt) in the OSM-plugin folder!! At „automatically upgrade“ the whole folder is deletete an then new OSM folder is copied.
Instead of „automatically upgrade“ simply copy the new version with your FTP client (overwrite/replace).
