Single track menu in GPS Tools

Category: GPS Tools 2 weeks ago

Hi,

I am using GPS Tools v5.1.7 with Joomla 3.9.0 & php 73.20

I am getting an error message when trying  to create a menu item to display a single track details (see attached screen shot).

Thanks for investigating the issue and reporting.

    Single track menu item is not meant for showing track, it is used for the urls creation internally. If you would like to show a track on the menu item, please use following steps.

    1. Create an article and add track short code to it https://docs.corejoomla.com/using_gps_tools_content_plugin_to_display_track_in_articles/ 

    2. Create a single article menu item for this article.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, the answer is totally unacceptable. "Single track menu item is not meant for showing track,"

    • Why does the menu item link indicate "Shows single track details"?
    • Why isn't it indicated in the documentation?
    • Why does it even appear in the menu item list?

    "it is used for the urls creation internally."

    • How should this be used for url creation as the add menu item screen always returns an error no matter what?
    • Why isn't it indicated in the documentation?
    • Who develops a menu item, just for the sake of internal url creation?

    "If you would like to show a track on the menu item, please use following steps."

    I know how to use the content plugin, but I don't want to create an article each time I want to display a single track details. I want to use the menu permissions directly to control access to some track details directly.
     
    If I remember it correctly, the single track menu item used to work with earlier versions of GPS Tools (v4.0) back in 2017. So, why don't you be honnest an call it a bug or regression and do the necessary effort to fix it?

    Agree, the menu item should not show as it is not used.  

    Earlier releases used legacy router which has customized page hence it used to work like that. v5 onwards use the new Joomla router which is completely different. But anyway, I will take your suggestions and get it worked like the way it used to work before.

    Hi Maverick,

    Thanks for your reply and for this much more constructive approach.

    I look forward to have the single track menu item available again.

    Any idea how quickly this could be restored?

    Best regards
