    I am pretty new to WordPress, and I freshly installed the OSM-plugin today. I am running WordPress 4.7.3 with Twenty Seventeen theme, the plugin-version is Version 3.9.1.

    Trying to upload a GPX-File, I get the error message:
    “Blütenweg.gpx” has failed to upload.
    Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons.

    Just below, the OSM plugin states:
    OSM plugin added: GPX / KML

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello Christian,

    there might be also some security on server site. If it does not work directly in WordPress you can also updload it via FTP.

    Hello Christian, Mika,

    I got th same issue and found the way to correct this :

    You have to install WP-add-MIME plugin, activate and add gpx = application/gpx+xml

    This works in my 4.7.4–fr_FR with OSM 3.9.3
