Licenses of the maps:

!! IMPORTANT !!
The WordPress Plugin Review Team required us to provide opt-in feature to display attribution since it is part of WordPress Plugin Guidelines. So you have to enable the checkbox “Display attribution (credit) in the map.” at the WP OSM Plugin Shortcode generater or add the attribution manually to your map. Otherwise it may violate the map or data license, eg OpenStreetMap.

Installation

  1. Upload OSM folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Generate the OSM shortcode when you write your post / page

IMPORTANT:
Personal data (eg. gpx files) must not be stored in the plugins/osm folder but in the upload folder!

FAQ

Do I need any key or any registration to show maps in my blog

No!

I do not see my gpx file / marker file in the map ?

The file has to be located at the same adress as your blog.
There must be not format tag (like href …) in the shortcode.

I have understood everything so far except for embedding it in a Gutenberg editor. I would like to integrate a map into a theme (Avada) and need a solution here. Is anyone able to help me?

Kann mir hier jemand weiter helfen?

The plugin is superb and when I found an issue, I reported it to the plugin onwer who not only responded to me really quickly, but also patiently walked me through the resolution to the issue, which turned out not to be a bug, but a user error (my bad). For anyone googling in the future, here is a good tip. If you are getting any errors that contain phrases such as "Warning: Undefined array key 1" ... followed by "yoursite.tld/wp-content/plugins/osm/osm.php on line 552" or "Warning: Undefined variable $MarkerArray" and then ending with "wp-content/plugins/osm/osm.php on line 564", then the fix is simple; 1) delete your plugin on the page where the error is showing 2) save the edit 3) create a fresh new map through the generator and don't forget to click 'save marker and generate shortcode' before copying the html shortcode into your page.
