This feature is available since version 5.8.0. Go to
WP Admin > MapSVG and enter your purchase code (you can get on CodeCanyon). Click
Now WordPress will do periodical checks for updates. You can check for updates manually: go to
WP Admin > Plugins. Find "MapSVG" in the list of installed plugins and click on
Check for updates link.
To update the plugin click on
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.
