  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • 2 differents maps

        Hi ! I have a simple question, can we add a second map on a different page ? I mean that my website will follow the adventure of 2 travellers, so I would need the plugin to work for two differents maps, is it possible ?

        Thank you so much,

        Amaury

        • "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 ?

          • Satellite Default and Default Zoom

            Hi, great plugin... is it possible to the satellite mode without clicking it as soon as the user visits the page? Also is it possible to default the zoom setting to say 2 notches above minus?

            • 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!

                • 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

                  • 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!

                    • 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.

                      • custom marker image

                        Hi Marcus,

                        Is it somehow possible to use a different marker image. I'd love to use my own-made.

                        • 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?

                          • 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

                            • 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…

                              • 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.

                                • Markers without numbering

                                  Nice plugin, thanks! I'm using it as an overview list of places I've been, so the ordering among locations is not significant. Is it possible to use generic markers without a number attached?

                                  • 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

                                    • 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

                                      • 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…

                                          so first of all why do you delete my post?

                                          i thought everyone can make suggestions but that seems not the case.

                                          styled maps would be great
