  1. Issue with videos on Smartphone

    Hi Marcus,

    I've been using your plugin for years and I love it.

    Embed videos don't play when I view my blog on my iPhone :
    http://lebigtrip.fr/2013/04/happy-feet-en-patagonie/

    I've disabled all my plugins one by one and it seems to come from Travelmap.

    Do you know how I could fix this issue?

    Thanks

  2. Infinite Scroll and Travelmap

    Hi

    I have been using Travelmap for a long time. Great work!

    After being inspired by different social media sites, I wanted to add Infinite Scroll plugin to my site.
    For some reason the map from travelmap will not show up in the main feed when i have Infinite Scroll plugin enabled.
    It works if I click on the post.
    You can see the problem on "page 2" here http://www.eder.no

  3. keep getting this error: The "sensor" parameter specified in the request must be set to either "true" or "false".

    I just started using travel map and keep getting the sensor parameter error. I tried disabling my other google maps plugin, minify plugins and w3tc but still it is not working. Are there any settings that I can try? Thanks!

  4. Clicking on the marker takes you to blog posts?

    Hello!

    I'm not sure if it's possible to do this now, but is there a way to set it so that when you click on the marker for a city, it will take you to any blog posts that have that city in its tag?

    Thanks!

  6. Grreat plugin, first of all!!!

    I am planning a single trip only, so it i enough for my proposals.
    My two suggestions would only be:
    1.- option to start map centered in current location (detected by date)
    2.- option to choose color of lines between points
    3.- yeah, mentioned already: when clicking on a point, redirect to entries with that location name, i.e: ?s="location_name"

    Sorry it was three, haha

    thanks dude!

  7. How about posting your responses to people's problems here, so we don't have to ask the same question again?

    If you answer the questions where we can all see it, not only can we immediately solve our problems, it will also save you having to repeat yourself or go to every person's page.

    Thanks!

  9. map centred by last location

    would it be possible to centre the map bay its last location? so it could show australia in the centre, if this would be the last location added, or europe if this was the last location. better than always show the americas in the centre, which is not my personal view of the world ;-)
    thanx for this very good plugin! - guido

  10. Map won't load only a grey box...

    I am having difficulty getting the google map to load on my site. the list is working beautifully but all that appears for the map is a grey box. I have tried the plugin in both Safari and Chrome.The box will change shape depending on what pixel size I choose for my map. I have tried disabling every plugin but nothing is responding. My test website is http://ivesaid2much.com/whereami/.
    Thanks

  12. Different Style Markers

    Would love to be able to choose between a default plain marker and the numbered markers that the plugin uses. Currently it only lets me choose whether or not to show markers at all.

    This way, I'd be able to have a map that simply shows all the states or countries I've been to, not an ordered list of intended destinations.

  13. newbie in the extreme

    Hi Marcus,

    I apologize for this surely infuriatingly stupid question. Is there a guide for the most basic setup of this plugin? I pasted [travelmap-map height=400] into my page editor but all I get is a gray box. I also have no idea how to edit locations or any of that, I assume that happens once I see a map. Im using Firefox 16.0.2 on a Macbook Pro, with the latest version of Wordpress.

    Thanks so much!
    Tom, USA

  15. Auto-generated links to WP-posts including the clicked location!

    Hej!
    Först, grymt jobbat igen!

    The following would be a great option:

    An option to make each marker on the map clickable, that takes the visitor to the search result of that position.

    For example, when a visitor clicks on the marker of Bogota where I was in the beginning of my trips, the url takes him/her to www.example.com/?s=bogota so they can read about what I have written about that place.

    This would make it much easier for the visitors to read about each location and saves me from writing custom links to all locations.

    This would off course be…

  16. Unable to add locations ... =((

    Hi,

    I'd like to use Travelmap, but have the problem that it seems impossible to add locations. After clicking "save" nothing happens, when Saving/reopening Travelmap settings page to a new tab, nothing has been saved.

    Using newly updated Wordpress 3.4.2, but problem was also with 3.3.1, Firefox 16.0.2.

    Do you have any pointers for me how to look for the error cause ?
    I also already tried deactivating all other plugins.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Florian

  17. Lines do not appear anymore

    I just added about 20 new destionations, and at once the lines don't get drawed anymore. It only draws a line from the first to the last destination.
    The markers are set properly.
    I tried it out in different browsers, all with the same result.
    The map you can find below:

  18. Display a map in the header

    Hi,

    I am using travelmap since a few weeks.
    It works pretty good for me, but I would like to diplay a map in the header of my wordpress website.

    Does someone have a clue about it?

    Insterting the [travelmap-map] in the header doesn't work for now...
    But maybe I need extra-code ?

    Thanks for you help

  20. Current position is not displayed

    Hi Marcus,

    although I filled in the arrival date of my visited positions, there is no special marker showing the current position. What am I doing wrong? I am using Wordpress 3.4.1.
    See http://www.themacmillians.de. The last arrival date filled in is for position 7 (2012-08-26).

    Please help me out here!

    Regards,
    Marc
