Perfect - you can show tracks have different categories. The only thing I was missing are sub categories

Ease of use

I found it quite easy to use and make my own design changes.


The support is excellent - he even created a custom solution for me as there were some restrictions on my server. Top support


Documentation is good - and if something is not clear the developer will respond in the forum to your questions.

I used this to: I used this for a bike rental website that also shows bike tracks that the clients can download and use in their GPS watches or phones and other devices

The icons on the category list from the back-end do not work.

Geolocation menu option opens a blank white page, I mean ALL white.

Ease of use

Extension is still young; though, overall fairly easy to use with a little common sense.

I used this to: I am working on a new website that requires an extension of this nature.
Owner's reply: This issue has been reported by a new user on out forum.
It seems to occurs when Component J!TrackGallery is installed outside Root path (not in /components but in another subfolder). In that case, some JS and image links are broken since they wrongly refer to root. Fix is in progress
