Mit diesem Plugin ist es einfach den Google Kartendienst in Artikel und Seiten einer WordPress Installation einzubauen.

Hier die Liste der Funktionen, die sich mit dem Karten-Manager konfigurieren lassen.

Das Zeichnen von Tracks und Wegpunkten mit dem Editor ist als Demo der Installation beigefügt und als Pro-Version verfügbar.

Plugin Download bei WordPress.org: Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer

Map buttonHier wird der Karten-ManagerKarten-Manager im WordPress Editor gestartet.



Alle Funktionen sind über die Reiter des Dialogfensters erreichbar.

Als Administrator kann man unter Einstellung Google Maps einige andere Einstellungen vornehmen und externe WMS-Kartenserver einbinden.

Wer sich mit den WordPress ShortCodes auskennt kann diese auch direkt angeben, ansonsten erledigt das der Karten-Manager. Hier ein paar Beispiele.

Now it is easy to use Google Maps inside WordPress. Here’s the Plugins feature list:

Drawing tracks and waypoints directly inside the map instead of using GPX are features of the Pro-version.

Plugin download: Google-Maps-GPX-Viewer

Map buttonHere you’ll start the plugins Map-Manager.Map manager



All map settings are done through the map managers user interface.

There are some more settings inside the admins Settings Google Maps area. Here you may setup external WMS, OsGeo Web-Map-Service or OSM Open-Street-Maps to your WordPress Blog.

If you know how to use WordPress ShordCodes you may put them directly into your posts, otherwise the map manager will do this for you. Here are some sample maps.

  1. Hi,
    I’ve been using GPX Viewer for some time now to track our cycle route through Europe. All good until about a month ago. Now, when I click the GPX Viewer icon the dialogue box comes up completely blank (empty) and therefore I cannot interface with the plug-in. I don’t know what has changed.
    I’ve deactivated and re-installed to try to fix but no luck. Don’t know what to do.
    We are using WordPress and the my PC is iOS 10.11.6. The GPX plug-in is also up to date.
    Will be most pleased if you have any ideas?

    • Hi Dave, try to deactivate the last installed plugins to find out if there are incombatibilities.

      • I have not installed any new plugins since this issue started. In fact the site has been stable for almost a year so it was surprising that the dialog box is now blank. All other plugins appear to be working well. I have quizzed my wife (who owns the pc) and she said she has removed some programs.
        Does the dialog box need any p.c based software to display, other than that provided by Safari.
        Out of interest I also deactivated all other plugins but the issue is still there.
        No progress I’m afraid.

      • Hi b.a.,

        I´ve the same issue. First time I recognized this problem was after WordPress-Update to 4.8.

        I´ve already deactivated all other plugins and tried a original wp-theme. The plugin itself works fine, only the dialogue box is blank now. If I add te shortcut manually it works fine.

        • Hi Thomas,
          Thanks for the tip. Have followed your suggestion and uploaded manually through the ftp server. That works but not ideal.
          Hi b.a. The dialog box still comes up blank. Any thoughts yet?

  2. Ich benutze auf meinem WP Blog seit einigen Jahren euer tolles Google-Maps-Plugin zur Darstellung von GPS Tracks. Seit mindestens einigen tagen funktioniert das Plugin leider nicht mehr. Eine Fehlermeldung sehe ich nicht, stattdessen erscheint nur ein leerer Rahmen. z.B. https://www.skaghk.com/wp/2016/surselva-abseits-der-hauptstrasse/

    Der Versuch, alle Einstellungen mit ausnahme der Angabe des GPX Files aus dem Shortcode herauszunhemen, war leider auch nicht erfolgreich.

    Wie muss ich vorgehen, um die Ursache des Problems zu finden?


    • Problem gelöst … bzw. Workaround gefunden!

      Scheinbar liegt es daran, ob der Browser https und http Quellen akzeptiert oder alles über https haben möchte. Die Installation des Plugins “Really Simple SSL” und der anschliessende Update der URL des GPS Files im Shortcodes von http nach https löst das Problem. Nicht sehr elegant, aber es funktioniert.

  3. Hi, your plugin looks really great and if it would work I would also donate usage. Unfortunately I´ve a fatal error when if I try to activitate the plugin: “Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_get_server_info() ”

    WordPress verion: 4.7.3
    PHP-VErsion: 5.6.29
    MySQL-VErsion: 5.7.15

    Do you know any solution?

    • can you post more info like module/file and line no. of the error?
      Try to deactivate other plugins to exclude incompatibility.

      • Even if I deactivate all pluins the same alert still remain.
        Here´s the complete alert (I´ve just replaced account and domain infos with “…”:
        “Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_get_server_info() in /www/htdocs/…../wp-content/plugins/google-maps-gpx-viewer/php/gpx_database.php:191 Stack trace: #0 /www/htdocs/…../wp-content/plugins/google-maps-gpx-viewer/php/gpx_database.php(12): poi_db_install() #1 /www/htdocs/…../wp-content/plugins/google-maps-gpx-viewer/php/map_functions.php(17): require_once(‘/www/htdocs/w01…’) #2 /www/htdocs/…./plugins/google-maps-gpx-viewer/google-maps-gpx-viewer.php(17): require(‘/www/htdocs/w01…’) #3 /www/htdocs/……/includes/plugin.php(1882): include(‘/www/htdocs/w01…’) #4 /www/htdocs/…./wp-admin/plugins.php(164): plugin_sandbox_scrape(‘google-maps-gpx…’) #5 {main} thrown in /www/htdocs/……/wp-content/plugins/google-maps-gpx-viewer/php/gpx_database.php on line 191″

    • The plugin never use this function.
      Try a google search to “Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_get_server_info()”
      maybe someone had the same problems.

      • Thanks! I think it was a template problem. After changing the template everything is working fine and I´ve found a way to include google API-Key. Is there any chance to change the numbers at the elevation chart? I`d like to have only whole numbers without decimals places.

  4. We’ve been using the excellent WMS OSM interface http://tile.thunderforest.com/landscape/
    and also the cyclemap and outdoors tiles.

    They now require an API key which we’ve obtained. The map displays with a text overlay without the API key.

    However their new URL doesn’t work with the plugin because of the API suffix. The new format is
    where z is zoom and x and y define the tile. Leaving out the z, x, y and all the rest works (though with the text overlay).
    Adding the api key part disables the map.

    Their website: https://www.thunderforest.com/maps/

    Some documentation: https://www.thunderforest.com/tutorials/openlayers/

    Is there any way of adding the api key without disabling the map? I will happily edit the code!

    • I found out the answer.
      Edit google-maps-gpx-viewer/js/gmap_v3_wms_overlay.js adding the api key in this way -
      //Define OSM maptye
      function OSMMapType(name, map_url, max, min){
      var osmMapType = new google.maps.ImageMapType({
      getTileUrl: function (coord, zoom) {
      return map_url + zoom + “/” + coord.x + “/” + coord.y + “.png” + “?apikey=”;

  5. HI
