<maplink> and/or <mapframe>: introduction of a user-set count numbers or texts
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Now, on a map only symbol markers like museums etc. and markers with auto-counted numbers are shown. At Wikivoyage/de we need also user-set numbers and texts written on the markers. This is mainly for backward compatibility.

GeoJSON properties must be extended by an additional marker-symbol attribute like "-user" and a new property like "marker-text". User-set numbers and letters must be analyzed to prevent these values from auto-counters.

This task was mentioned at Community-Wishlist-Survey-2017 (, which got the No.1 out of 214 proposals.

Do you mean showing a specific number or a letter on a marker? You can do it with "marker-symbol":"h" (letter) or "10" (number) without any modifications. Or do you mean something else?

Yes, I think about "marker-symbol":"h", "marker-symbol":"h5", "marker-symbol":"2a" or "marker-symbol":"25". It is not yet working. An error message occurs. The usage of user-specified values is not specified in the extension description/help, too.

Same as T141335

T141335#2497952 is an argument to not decline this task as no-one is against implementing and fixing this task.
