The total distance is no longer shown during the creation of a route on the gaiagps.com website. It always was shown until quite recently, so this is a new bug. Now, only "--" is displayed until the route is saved.
This is a very serious (and recently introduced) bug since it makes GaiaGPS.com useless for interactively planning a route. One needs to see cumulative distance during route creation, in order to make decisions that keep the route the right length for participants.
