Basically, it will say you use this at your own risk and the author cannot be held responsible.


I'm glad I wasn't just rambling and you were able to parse all of that. Thanks, Bill!

Done. A pop-up waiver is displayed before files can be downloaded. The user has the option to continue (agree to terms) or cancel and not get the file.

I like the little icons that you added for reports that contain a Google Map and/or .gpx file available for download. Good stuff. =D>

Yup. I'll make it so the TR author can specify whether or not users can download the GPX file from the report. More to come...

Now there's a "share" flag on the TR EDIT page so the author can make the GPX file public for downloading.

Once that's set a GPX file download link is visible on the trip report (directly under the google map containing the GPX data).


OK. I see the link but I cannot figure out how to download the gpx file. Clicking on the link doesn't do anything. What am I missing?

Depending on browser type, some people were not seeing the link. I just made a change and you should now see it below the Google Map on trip reports which have one.

Ha. I was just going to reply, 'never mind I found it.' I thought I must have been blind to have missed it earlier because I looked and clicked on everything on the page.

Thanks for the change.
