How to delete/rearrange locations

Making good progress with the bones of 300 listings up in the last 48 hours and should have it finished by Sunday. Daniel, if you could have a quick look to make sure what i have done is broadly correct, would appreciate it. A couple of questions:

1. When I started I added some locations which were not reconised by GPS (eg Island of Scedro rather than Scedro, hilltop villages). Can't figure out how to delete these.

2. When I started, I added locations as they came into my head, but would like to have a more sensible order (most popular first) - how to rearrange?

3. Can you explain how to add an external link? I don't plan on adding lots, but will need to add some.

4. Can you point me to the place where it explains about the revenue share on the adsense on the website that i have created?

That's it for now - back to building. Thanks for your patient replies thus far. Am getting better...

Cheers Paul

Hi Paul,

The places have been deleted.

I have also deleted the following entries (not working anymore now), which have been located inside the now deleted districts. If you need them, please enter them again in the correct district:
http://www.guidegecko.com/hvar/island-of-scedro-croatian/kordic/p,608185160
http://www.guidegecko.com/hvar/rudine-monuments-buildings/titos-tunnels/p,608185407


For the photo, you should see a delete link on this page (make sure you are logged in): http://www.guidegecko.com/jelsa/the-best-cherry-strudel-on-the-island/pp,7854#view

Please also select which photos to use for the iPhone app. More is here: http://www.guidegecko.com/help-publish2#include-photos

Hi,

1. Which districts do you want deleted? Please post the URLs here.

2. Photos for every place - See this thread and answers (should make this thread a FAQ...): http://www.guidegecko.com/finding-photos-a-headache/pa,173. No need to add a generic photo.

Cheers,
Daniel

Making good progress - lots of work! But a very good system you have here.

One more question in addition to the location one below - do we have to include a photo for every place? I have numerous locations where I don't have a pic of sufficient quality. Can I omit or shall I include a generic one of the town?

Cheers Paul

1. Locations - I mean districts. If you go to http://www.guidegecko.com/hvar/travel-guide/p,223149 to the bottom and districts in Hvar, I have created all the towns and villages (including the main town of the same name, Hvar Town) and gone from there. When I started, I hadn't understood the GPS name requirement, so there are several districts such as Island of Scedro, hilltop villages I need to delete.

2. Locations - as above. Ok, it is most important to get it sorted for the app.

3. Thanks.

4. Ok, will send you my ID, so if I understand you correctly, 50% of the ads will have your ID, 50% mine, you keep 100% of your ad rev and I keep 100% of mine.

Re general, yes very much a work in progress. Spent the last two days adding the places, now time to flesh them out with contact details, descriptions and photos.

Cheers Paul

Hi,

One by one:

1. What do you mean by "locations"? If you mean articles and listings, please post article/listings URLs here that you want deleted. If you mean districts, also post the URLs here. Please be careful NOT to create districts that you don't need.

2. Again, what do you mean by locations? In any way, articles/listings and districts cannot be re-sorted on the website. For the app and eBook, you will be able to sort them in any way you like

3. That is a frequently asked question. And that's why it is answered here: http://www.guidegecko.com/help-publish2#add-links :-)

4. We will need your Google AdSense id, and we will then alternate between "your" and "our" ads (50% each). Please email me.

Re general comments: Looks good. I noticed some entries are still lacking a description. I assume this is work in progress? Also check this FAQ http://www.guidegecko.com/help-publish2#include-photos for photos.

Cheers,
Daniel
