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

I'm using the Kartographer add-on for MediaWiki. It does not display markers. The address to the marker is: https://tile.openstreetmap.org/v4/marker/pin-s+7e7e7e.png

Anyone know why this isn't working?

Hello, I have the same problem. I'm using Kartographer in version 1.39. On the map i only see a border but without marker. @danielgolub: Have you already fixed this problem? Maybe you or anybody else can help me fixing this problem...

These marker urls are wrong. It does seem as if Kartographer is using the tile host and adds the path /v4/marker/....png. But those markers only exist on maps.wikimedia.org. So if you use maps.wikimedia.org, those marker urls should work but not with a different tile host.

This is nothing for OpenStreetMap to do but a problem with the code of Kartographer (or your usage of Kartographer).

At the Kartographer help sections it says:

$wgKartographerSimpleStyleMarkers   true

    Use an api to generate markers using the simplestyle-spec for features. Should be set to false for most applications outside WMF. Otherwise images of markers are assumed to be hosted on the map server.

You should set this to false if you use Kartographer outside of Wikipedia.
