  1. Map area not loading fully

    I think it's a fantastic idea and the interface for the plugin is great, however unfortunately my map doesn't load correctly - http://anexistentialcrisis.com/?page_id=281

    For some reason only a very small section of the total map area shows an actual map, zoomed out far enough that it can fit all the points into that very small space.

    I've tested in Chrome and Safari (OS X) and am getting the same issue in both.

    It worked the first few times I loaded it. I've tried deleting and re-adding all the destinations, that doesn't seem to fix it. I'm wondering if it's a…

  3. Different colors and map zoom

    Hello! I'd like to have different colors for different lines. For example coloring a passage by boat red and a passage by bus yellow.

    And additionally, it would be nice to determine where the map zoom as default. For example, I have a round the world trip going, but the whole plan of the trip is on the map, so it's zoomed way out. It would be better to have it zoomed to for example current location +-2 locations.

  4. "I'm Here" in the side bar

    As there is a star showing the current location in the travel-list, is it possible to have a tag to add in the side bar, showing the current location ?

  6. Problem with wordpress 3.4

    It's a fanstatic plugin. After I updated to wordpress version 3.4 I cannot add a new location.I've added 55 location so far. The problem is that when pressing the save button for the location the page jumps to the beginning of the page.

  7. [travelmap-map markers=false]

    Hi, thank you very much for the plug in. I have a problem that I cannot solve. Wherever I put [travelmap-map markers=false] - now at the end of everything else, but it happens when I put it between the map and list etc - it makes a big space in between the list and the end of the page with comments etc. Same happens between map and a list if I put it there. My map is here: http://www.katarzynatolwinska.com/trasa/map/
    Thank you very much for your help!

  8. Drag & Drop does not work on iPad - temporal order is not correct

    Hi.
    Great plugin. Thanks a lot for the work you put in.
    I'm currently travelling round the world and use it on my blog to show where I am. I'm equipped with an iPad and my concern is partly related to this device.

    I cannot use the drag & drop functionality on my iPad to reorder the locations. The drag&drop code is probably for mouse usage only. In order for it to work on the ipad you have to handle the touch events specifically, which are by default mapped to the scroll behavior.

    This problem would actually be irrelevant, if…

  11. Sorting by arrival date

    I already entered the places of my current trip. But now I would like to also enter the places of my last trip, which where over 100 places. That they appear in the right order on the map I have to move them by Hand (mouse) to the correct place before the places of my current trip.
    It would be really helpful if there would be a functionality to order the places automatically by arrival date. e.g. a button or something.

  12. remove travelmap styles and jquery-ui from the frontpage if not necessary

    i saw that the plugin loads the travelmap and jquery ui css on the frontpage, but thats not necessary for the functionality.

    the travelmap.css must only be loaded if the shortcode [travelmap-list] is in the posted

  13. Clicking edit, delete, or add location in the plugin settings just takes you to the top of the wordpress administration panel.

    This started happening for no particular reason. I have check in updated versions of Chrome and IE and get the same thing. Any ideas?

  15. Users permission

    Hi, is there a way to allow non administrator users to use the plugin ?
    I'ld like to ask the author and editor to edit destinations and to consider it as content and not as configuration data.

  16. Show links?

    Hi, is it possible to show somehow which markers are links and which aren't? Maybe with the URL also displayed when you hover?

  17. Multiple maps on the same page

    Hi Marcus,

    Thanks for making such a great plugin. It's really great. I had a quick question. Do you know of any issues with having two or more maps on the same page?

    I'm trying to have a page that uses the shortcodes like this:

    ----------------
    Trip A
    [travelmap-map first=2004-12-22 last=2005-01-26]
    [travelmap-list first=2004-12-22 last=2005-01-26]

    Trip B
    [travelmap-map first=2006-04-15 last=2006-04-26]
    [travelmap-list first=2006-04-15 last=2006-04-26]
    ---------

    I'm getting both the lists coming up but the second map is appearing in the position for Trip A.

    Just wondering if you knew of any issues with having multiple maps on the page or whether it…

  18. disable scrollwheel zooming

    First of all: awesome plugin! Thanks!
    I have the map spanning the header area of the site, and everytime I want to scroll down the page, the map just zooms out (when the cursor is over it) instead of scrolling down.
    I know this is how gmpas normally works, but is there a way of disabling that for the plugin?
