Download the .zip with the new plugin version from the CodeCanyon > Downloads page to your computer.
Now you need to upload MapSVG to your WordPress website. There are 2 ways to do this:
Open your WordPress admin panel, go to Plugins. Find MapSVG, click
Deactivate. When the page reloads, find MapSVG again and click
Delete. Now go to
Plugins > Add new > Upload. Upload .zip with the plugin, click
Updating from versions before 5.4.0
If you uploaded custom marker images to
mapsvg/markersfolder they will be lost with this method of updating. You'll need to upload them again or use the second method of updating shown below that doesn't delete the
mapsvg/folder. Since v5.4.0 markers are uploaded into a separate folder.
Updating from versions 1.x or 2.x
If you uploaded custom maps - they will be lost if you delete the plugin folder. Backup your custom maps from
mapsvg/mapsfolder via FTP.
If you see "The link has expired" error – this usually means that you need to increase max. uploading file size in php.ini settings:
upload_max_filesize = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
max_execution_time = 300
An alternative, in case the WordPress Admin Upload does not work: unzip the file that you downloaded from CodeCanyon. Open your WordPress installation folder using any FTP manager: it could be Cyberduck, FileZilla, Total Commander. Go to the
wp-content/plugins/ folder and upload the
mapsvg folder you previously unzipped, overwriting the existing
wp-content/plugins/mapsvg folder and all files inside of it.
Now in your WordPress admin panel go to
Plugins > Installed plugins, find MapSVG and click
Activate. MapSVG will appear in the main WP Menu on the left.
