GPX import fails despite valid format

Post by Clyde »

When I use the Outdooractive web page to export a route to GPX file, the Hammerhead dashboard fails to import this file.
That is because the file includes an 11-line </metadata> block. I have to manually delete the 11-line metadata block before Hammerhead will accept the GPX file.

GPX is based on XML -- the eXtensible Markup Language. So Hammerhead import should not fail just because Outdooractive have eXtended the Markup Language implementation to provide a new custom tag. Hammerhead should quietly ignore unfamilar tags, and continue with the import as best it can.
