Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have OSM embedded on a website (using the shortcode for a custom tile set) and I want to display a series of GPX files (or kml I can export either) that I will be uploading over the course of a trip. Would it be possible to automate this so all I have to do is upload the files? Perhaps with a wordpress plugin or simple script of some sort?

Any ideas would be appriciated!

Not sure about what you want to automate, but maybe you can borrow some code from one of those Track_drawing_websites.

Adding GPX files to the embedded map obtained via the share button won't be possible without major modifications. But you can embed your map the usual way using Leaflet or OpenLayers (it seems like the embedded map also uses Leaflet).

As you mentioned Wordpress, there is a wiki page about Wordpress which lists some other possible solutions and plugins.
