4.1 Add a new "Street" page type

If you look in the "Directory" box, you'll see a new section:

 Please try them out and let me know if you spot any problems.


Most welcomed and useful addition.


If anyone has previously made a Place page for a street, please let me know in a comment here, and I'll convert it to be a Street page instead.

Hi David,

please convert

Harcourt Road https://gwulo.com/node/44817

Barker Road https://gwulo.com/node/33440

Hanoi Road https://gwulo.com/node/31637

Reagards, Klaus

P.S. Are junctions of roads "streets" or "places"?

Hi Klaus,

Thanks for these links. I've converted them to Street pages - please could you edit them to add in the route of the street, which replaces the outline you'd used before.

Junctions are still Places: a point on a map is a Place, a line on a map is a Street.

Regards, David

David, there is a small bug when creating or editing streets. When I got to tags and type in something, a drop-down menu opens. Unfortunately, it is hidden behind the map directly below. It is very helpful to see the tags already entered and not to create new ones.

Regards, Klaus 

Thanks Klaus. I've found a description of a similar problem, and a solution, at https://www.drupal.org/project/geofield_map/issues/3061741

I'll be back to HK two weeks from now, and will try out the solution then.

Regards, David


Believing that 'place' was appropriate, I suspect that I have nearly always used 'place' instead of 'street'  Are you able to change them all - there must be dozens in the 367 Association gallerry?  Andrew

I hope I've fixed this problem. Please could you try it again and see if it works ok now?

(Problem reported to Drupal at https://www.drupal.org/project/leaflet_widget/issues/3075330)

Unfortunately it's a manual edit that needs Admin rights, so it'll be something to work through gradually over time. 

If you see a Place that should be a Street, please add a comment to it with text "convert to street". I'll convert it and then delete the comment.

Hi David,

it works now both when creating as well as editing streets.

Regards, Klaus
