While I'm in the process of adding / cleaning trail maps in my area - what is the point of the OSM ID, and where do we find it in OSM? I currently use a Garmin Edge 830 and generally turn *OFF* Garmin's OSM maps while I use the Trailforks basemap (as leaving both on generates a mess of duplicate trails and becomes difficult to read). If I do something with this field, will it prevent the Garmin from rendering "both" trails somehow? If so, I'll gladly do the work to update everything in my area. I'm assuming this is not the case though...just wanted to be sure.

OSM ID is not required or used really. It is more for internal tracking if a trail has a matching OSM way. We list this OSM way on a trails stats page. Just some extra meta data.

It has no effect on the Garmin maps.

I just noticed several routes that were shown as being open to uses that individual trails in the route did not allow. It seems that it shouldn't even be necessary to identify the allowable uses for a route - instead, it should be determined by parsing the trails in the route, and automatically identifying which uses are available for all trails in the route. For example, if a route used a single hiker only trail, and other trails open to every use, the route should recognize the hiking trail as the constraint and show the route as hiker only. Basically a route should be constrained the lowest common denominator of allowable uses for each trail in the route.

there is a Ridden feature,
but this feature only is for riding.
but it would make sense to have one for each activity. but if having one for all activities, it should be changed to a suitable word.
But I don't see this as a high priority.

We had our Postgres database server run out of space and had to purge old ridelog data from it. Several features on the website like the personal ridelog map on profile pages used this to show your rides on the map when zoomed in. I am looking into ways to fix this feature.


Thank you,

Didn't I have ride logs as a question? My question was about API access in general. People do not get an answer to the question for access.

MTB Hidden and Hike visible:
they write so that this function does not exist at the moment. Will such a function come in the future?

Hi J'm an admin for the VCO area (Italy) and we'd like to add videos for some of the best trails/routes of the area. We are wondering what kind of video is more popular and useful for riders and kindly asking for suggestions such as...duration, drone or go pro, explanation of the type of trail and the surroundings, ecc. Do you have a model video to propose?
Thank you
Ciao

Agreed! Please fix!

I have been tracking this for a year, but won't show the button any different when you change activity types. I will do that now.

I think videos with some narration and explanation with static shots of the rider going by are the best. better than just plain POV videos. But obviously a lot more work to create!

Currently it is possible to link videos from Youtube, Vimeo or Pinkbike only.

I would like to link my videos on Kinomap. For example here is Forest City, CA

Hi There, Im looking for some clarity on elevation data in your trail descriptions. More specifically the trail called "Schacher" in Golden BC. The trail is a massive climb listed as 1625m of elevation gain, everyone that comes back including myself says that TF is wrong and my computer says 1058m of climb. So is this 1625m include Total climb which is every little up and down over the trails 15.3km length, or is it just total difference between the start point and end point? Basically is it Total climb or total elevation difference? I have had several relationship ending arguments over this! I know that there is a lot of rolling terrain on the climb that could add up. Any help would be awesome !
Thanks
Mike

When I create & submit a new Route as a public route, it needs to be confirmed much like a new trail.

I have waited at least 30 minutes & it does NOT appear under the /confirm section of the website no matter how much I filter it.

If we select "route" in the "content Type" filter, the result "no new content needing confirmation"

If I provide the direct URL to the new route, to someone/anyone else, they can access & confirm or reject.

https://www.trailforks.com/confirm/view/route/274446/

Why is that? Is this a delay in the system? I have submitted my routes as Public Routes in the past & had people Confirm/Reject the same day.

Still not displaying for me:

As you can see it says in the top right corner "Confirm (1)"


I also made a route which is not showing up in confirm queue:

Not the first time i've seen this bug.

"Climb" stat is always cumulative, so counts the ups and downs, this is pretty much universal in all apps.

When I select the Nearby/Nearby Overview, I get the wrong city showing up. I haven't been able to find out how to change this. I have my profile address and city correct and I'd like nearby trail information to use this address. Please help.

You can set a home location for the map, I need to make this more visible in other spots. You can do this on the fullscreen map page.
