Problems on site


Sorry I pt this in the wrong place (locations I think) earlier. I am having a lot of problems adding material tonight. When I try and edit a description, instead of "edit" I am seeing "Add description" even thouth tere is a description already there. Then sometimes I cannot edit as it will not recognize when I put the cursor in place and click so i cannot get anything written or changed. I tried to use the spell checker in two different descriptions and that would not let me clck it open.

Another problem is when I am in a city and click on "Restaurants" or "Attractions" or any other heading the only thing that comes up is a map that may or may not have little numbered icons for the places I have already added. In the past there was a list of what was there and I could just click on "add something" to put in a new place. Now I don't know what is there or not and can't check since there is just that map, nothing else.

The only thing new or different is that I have downloaded Internet Explorer 9 but it works fine in everything elses. ( I have been using it for several days now) It's just tonight when I tried to work on my Georgia guide that I am having problems only in this site, so I don't think it is the new IE. Incidentally, the cursor works fine in this section.

Hi Katy,

Let me go through one by one:

> When I try and edit a description, instead of "edit" I am seeing "Add description" even thouth tere is a description already there.

This is normal, when the description is very short. Do not bother about it.

> Then sometimes I cannot edit as it will not recognize when I put the cursor in place and click so i cannot get anything written or changed.

Try restarting your computer, or at least restart the browser. This is usually a memory problem.

> I tried to use the spell checker in two different descriptions and that would not let me clck it open.

Can you post the URLs here? I guess it is related to the memory problem. Your computer is running out of memory resources, and thus won't open new things.

> Another problem is when I am in a city and click on "Restaurants" or "Attractions" or any other heading the only thing that comes up is a map that may or may not have little numbered icons for the places I have already added. In the past there was a list of what was there and I could just click on "add something" to put in a new place. Now I don't know what is there or not and can't check since there is just that map, nothing else.

Click on "Display all ..." in the top right corner of the map. This will bring back the "old" list view.

The map should display ALL listings as well. Listings that are not displayed do not have map coordinates. In this case, open the listing page, place the marker on the map and click save. Then reload the page with the large map, it will now show the listing.

Hope that helps!
Best,
Daniel
