Download xml-error

  • hi! i have a big problem with your nice plugin:

    all users (except me) can NOT download my gpx-tracks at my blog: By clicking the download link, the browser shoes an error message: “this xml file does not appear to have any style information associated with it”, then the xml-code will be shown and nothing else happened. What can I do?

    I use your plugin with version 1.1.37

    best regards from germany,

  • Hi, i have the same problem.
    When i click the download link, the browser open a new window and show me a .xml file.

    I use wordpress 3.8 and pluginVersion 1.2.6

    Best regards,



    looks like the programmer of this plugin gives no support… the error is caused by an Parser-Error from your Browser, which interprets the .gpx-file as an .xml. This error only happens if you have installed other .gpx-tools on your Computer like “gps-analyser” and so on.

    How I fixed it: I put a hint after each Download-link: “Problems with the Download? Click on the right Mouse-Button, and choose “Save target under..””

    Best regards,


    Thank you Sascha.

    Best regards,

    I solved the problem by adding this code to the file .htaccess

    AddType application/octet-stream .gpx

    In this way, all files with the extension. Gpx in the all website will be seen by the browser as a file to download or open.

    let me know if it works.

    Best regards.

    Hi again!

    I didnt find a file named .htaccess – i created one with your code and put it into the root directory. On 2 tested PCs it works fine. Pls help me testing it on another one! Use a gpx-Tourbook from my blog, and click the Download-link:

    Click me!

    Many thx for your help!



    It works fine Sascha! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nice website! Iยดm afraid of my very poor Italy ๐Ÿ™ seems to be a great gps-tour-site!

    ride on!
