    It’s been 4 years I’m developing this plugin. I needed for my website and I decided to share my work with everyone who needed. For free.

    When I had a lot of free time I was happy to invest my time to this project, and I enjoyed a lot!

    The first release was really buggy, but, with a lot of work and also your help, it became quite good :-) and I’m proud of it!

    As you probably noticed, I’m not replying to the forum very often, I’m really busy…
    I have my own business and I have no time for everything else. I don’t think I’ll find more time in the future.

    I want to share some numbers, for those who want to do something like this plugin:
    I earned 40€ from donations and ~30€ from google adsense.
    I spend 35€/year (web hosting), and a LOT OF TIME in coding

    I decided to donate the revenue to other the free software/websites I’m using everyday: Wikipedia (10€+10€+10€+10€), Filezilla (15€), Notepad++ (10€ + 5€)

    Thank you very much for those who sent me donations. At the beginning I didn’t even put my paypal account because I didn’t believe someone would pay for something free!
    Your donations helped me to understand more about free software projects.
    I hope you won’t displease I donated your money to other software.

    This plugin is not definitely dead. It’s opensource and YOU can also continue developing

    Bye Bye

    Hello,
    because of the donations …
    The Highchart.com license “non-commercial” is as much a hindrance. For commercial use your plugin needs to be paid to a third-party money. That’s uncool.
    If your plugin is likely to be used commercially, it would also bring in money, and it can turn around you will benefit. But if it is non-commercial, then you make the plugin from the sheer fun and joy. Money does not matter.
    Another problem is the transfer of personal data to third parties such as Google and Highchart.com. Heart rate, speed, thats to much information.
    Just as I have seen that the high chart is mostly used for the altitude. It would therefore be sufficient to generate only an altitude chart. The altitude should only be obtained from a server, if they are not always stored already in GPX File.
    And finally, it would be optimal if the route would be drawn by OSM, and not by Google (in the background by OSM maps).
    There are many similar projects in which all but the GPX file must be uploaded to the server. Some generate the high chart, based on the SMRT (Altitude Data) United States Geological Survey USGS, itself.
    http://dds.cr.usgs.gov/srtm/version2_1/SRTM3/ Or similiar NASA Data.
    Your plugin is nevertheless still the best that is currently available. It’s just not perfect. The biggest asset is that the GPX files are not stored externally.

    Dear max,

    I am sad to her that you decided to discontinue your great plugin. The plugin is still the best on the market and excels over many other solutions. I understand that maintaining the plugin is a lot of work and can hardly be done as a hobby.

    However, have you thought about to commercialise your work. For example, you could sell the code via codecanyon.net. Maybe updated with some premium features. I would be your first customer.

    Kind Regards
    Michael

    Hi Bastianonm,
    I’m trying this plugin… but it seems not working always… sometimes the map is not uploaded and there’s something wrong with map zoom control panel on lìthe left.
    Does it depend on the wordpress version (latest).

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    Your plugin is great. I am using it at the moment on my wordpress website to show a route I am going to cycle. I’m not sure if it’s a lot of work but currently the plugin is interferring with another plugin on my website. Is it possible to change it to only load on the pages it is used? I am using a different plugin on another page and it does not work when I have both of them installed on my website but using them on different pages.

    Kind regards,

    Marc
