    Hello.

    Thank you for a brilliant product, which in the past has looked excellent on my page.

    However, now I cannot make the map work even though I have re-geo tagged my posts and I am trying to create a new map. All I get is an empty white box with a weird white X motif over part of it. Please see:

    If you know why this has happened, please let me know. I am desperate to get it working again.

    Thankyou.

    Hello LincsFilm,

    1.) Update to the latest WP OSM Plugin version.
    2.) post here the shortcode you are using to generate the map with geotags.
    3.) And add temp. another page just with a map without showing any marker inside and post the link here.

    Hi Mika,

    Thank you for the reply. I’ve done as you’ve asked – please see:
    http://www.lincsfilmarchive.co.uk/map-test/

    I use this code following instructions on the current archive map page:

    [osm_map_v3 map_center="53.221,-0.145" zoom="8" width="100%" height="650" tagged_type="post" marker_name="mic_black_pinother_02.png" type="pioneer" map_border="thin solid grey" tagged_param="cluster"]

    I’ve tried variations of this, including the suggested text verbatim and I get the same results each time.

    With thanks.

    Hallo LincsFilm,

    looks like it does not find any posts at map-test.

    But at
    http://www.lincsfilmarchive.co.uk/archive-film-map/
    the posts are found just not shown. Which shortcode do you use at archive-film-map?

    And can you also let us know what the shortcode [osm_info] traces.

    Hi again,
    Thanks so much for the help.

    Map-test is just a plain map as you requested, no traces associated with it.

    This code is what I use for /archive-film-map/:

    [osm_map_v3 map_center="53.221,-0.145" zoom="8" width="100%" height="650" tagged_type="post" marker_name="mic_black_pinother_02.png" type="pioneer" map_border="thin solid grey" tagged_param="cluster"]

    My traces are set using GeoTag, so no shortcode is provided. Is this what you mean by [osm_info] traces?

    Hello,

    in the map-test site you could simple add the shortcode: [osm_info] (like [osm_map_v3 ...] but without any arguments), this will trace some usfull information for debugging.

    I’ve left the [osm_info] data available to view on our web page for you. Thanks.

    I see, sorry! I have put this on both map pages for you.

    on map-test I received:

    Hello,

    this all looks fine.

    Did the map with the geotag ever work on your site?
    Could you temporary turn off other plugins to see if it is affected by a plugin-conflict?

    If we do not find the reason this way we will provide a special version for you with some additional debuginfo … this may take one or two weeks.

    Hi, and thank you!

    Yes this software used to work absolutely fine, but I didn’t use the geotagging.

    I created a map using multiple markers and assigned a custom field name/lat-long reference to all posts named “archive_map”. I’d then generate one map using that name and it would show all post markers as red pin graphics.

    I’ve just switched off all plug in and will test it a few times – I’ll let you know if it fixes anything.

    Bests,
    Lincsfilm

    I had some errors which might help – tried again with all plug ins off and received this:

    Map test

    [OSM-Plugin-Error]:No posts/pages with geotag found!

    [OSM-Plugin-Error]:CustomField: archive_map

    [OSM-Plugin-Error]:PostType: page

    [OSM-Plugin-Error]:Tagged_Filter: Featured

    I wonder if the geo tags set for “archive_map” the original custom fields is conflicting with new geotags?

    Hello,

    can you post the shortcode for these error messages? It looks like you filtered for pages (instead of posts) and for the category Featured.

    This is the short code. The errors appeared as I switched off other plugins.

    [osm_map_v3 map_center="53.193,-0.397" zoom="9" width="100%" height="450" tagged_type="post" marker_name="mic_black_pinother_02.png" type="pioneer" map_border="thin solid grey" tagged_param="cluster"]

    Many thanks.

    Hello LincFilm,

    this shortcode is correct. In the box you edit your post/page you can findet [visual|text]. Change to text and make sure your shortcode is pure text without any formatting string inside.
