Hey James,

I'm working on this as well and it's actually really easy to do.
I just use an ftp client (filezilla) to upload my kml files to the uploads folder (public_html/xmarxspot/wp-content/uploads/)
Once you've uploaded it you can just use that link for it eg http://yourdomain.com/wp-content/uploads/yourfile.kml,

i tried this and no luck. I followed exactly what is described above and I get a popup to download the file I just uploaded.

How can I get a KML into the Google Maps Plugin?

Ok - It's now working perfectly.

Question: When I go into drawing I now see my map from the KML file - when I choose the area on the map, I can not edit that area.

So, how do I get the redirect function? Or, is there another way to do that?

Hello,
Kml draw is not possible to modify via backend. You have to make changes in kml file where you have draw shapes.

Thanks
