New feature: Places (list)

If you're looking at all Places with a certain tag, you now have the option to see them on a list as well as on a map. eg if you click on the cinema tag, the standard page shows everything that has that tag.

Click "Places (map)" to see all the Places tagged cinema on a map, or click the new "Places (list)" to see all the Places tagged cinema in a list.

The list can be sorted by clicking on the column headings. eg if you want to see all the Places tagged cinema in order of the year they opened, click on the "From" column heading.


David, that's a very good tool for showing places of the same kind on a map. Unfortunately, I don't understand how to create this type of map. Would you please explain it, best in a step by step manner.

Thanks. Regards, Klaus

Hi Klaus,

You have already made this type of map. eg you've made several Places with the tag Barker Road: DunedinBracken Hill, etc.

So if you click on the tag Barker Road, then click on the click on the "Places (map)", there's your map.

Whenever you create several Places with the same tag, the map is made automatically.

I hope that helps, but let me know if anything still isn't clear.

Regards, David

Hi David,

thank you, now I got it. I originally tried to go via the Images&Photo feature - that didn't work.

You introduced the "Add a Connection" feature to images and places. What about the possibility of adding tags? I'm not sure myself if this a feasible idea, but maybe worth of thinking about it.

The reason why I think about it is the fact that "Mui Wo Waste Incinerator (2nd generation) [1987-????]" doesn't have any tag, but should have "government incinerator". Please add this tag.

Regards, Klaus

Hi Klaus,

I haven't looked at allowing any user to tag any content, so I'm not sure how easy that would be to do.

I've added the tag to the Mui Wo page.

Regards, David
