    I’m getting the same 404 error

    Seems like the forum, shop and homepage all load but everything else gives me the 404

    Dammit, thought I had fixed that. Obviously not.

    What happened when you followed the instructions on the 404 page?

    It should work again now

    There was a glitch that caused users to get an error with some South Island tracks when trying to access the track pages or download the GPX file which thanks to assistance from @steve_archibald has been resolved.

    The fix was as simple as adding some missing S in a couple of places in the code.

    I have been thinking about that. When I first assigned the colours I tried to select ones that Kinda resembled the surface type but that doesn’t work so great. Got any suggestions?

    Meybe black (like tar) for sealed roads, red shows up great for gravel which is probably the most common road for adv riders, Brown for dirt,, not sure about sand etc,, could purple work?
    Cheers.

    I updated the colours the other day Muzz, nothing too fancy, i just used primary colours.

    In other news I also did some tweaks that to me seem to have sped the site up a bit.

    Small point. Anyone tell me why I’ve dropped about 800 points on the leaderboard? Not a biggie, but I did notice the change in posting positions….

    A software update for that plugin had reset the settings so it was using the balance of points given automatically for things like posts and replies and not including manually added points updates for things like new GPS track pages.

    It is now showing correctly again.

    I installed several massive software updates a day or two ago, please let me know if you find anything funny.

    Hi Sandra

    Latest postings at the top may make readability a bit weird?

    I did find a setting that makes topics open on the last page of comments instead of the first so that should improve things.

    Hi, I’m a new member, I registered with my Google account, that’s all good, I’m logged in, but when I try to download a gpx file of a track, it takes me to the adventure riding site and says I have to login to download, but there’s no option there to login. Any ideas?
    Cheers Jas

    Hi, thanks for that, I can now download the gpx files, but my phone says it can’t open file.
