Possible New Arderin Beg ?
Context of comment:I have been over the Maumturks last week and I noticed a summit which might be a contender for the Arderin Beg list: Barrlugrevagh, or Binn Bhriocain SE Top (pt 558) might have the required prominence of 15m. I did not have a look at the height on my GPS when I was up on the top,but even though I am not too sure about the real accuracy of its altimeter, I could read 541m at the col and the graph on Basecamp suggests the prominence would be about 17m. Another good reason for which it would be nice to have it added is its impressive SW slopes, between Binn Bhriocain and Cnoc na hUilleann.

Users Online oddities - FIXED perhaps
Context of comment:All
You may see some weird "users" in the Users Online list.
There is an error here that's being researched prior to correction (hopefully).
admin@mountainviews.ie
Message:A fix for this apparent error has been applied. Please let admin@mountainviews.ie know of any unforeseen side-effects.
Additional points:Postscript. This was a curious and odd fault. It has usually proved worth investigating such odd errors (instead of just covering them up) because they are often pointers to some deeper malaise.
In this case and after hours of investigation it turned out that the most probable cause is search engines attempting to access an ajax .php file. The urls of the accessing hosts were all Google or Bing bots. Through MV usage tracking such accesses lead to insertion of a bogus record into MV's recent user list. If you are experienced with search engines you will be surprised to know that it appears that search engines can crawl addresses that only appear as literals in javascript. By crawling this the search engine caused problems for the website. The ajax modules now return a 401 error code and do not alter the MV recent user list. In the meanwhile various other nasty errors were found and corrected.
I can guarantee any developer assisting MV that you will emerge with some penetrating insights into modern web practice.

Outage on MountainViews, Mon11 Apr.
Context of comment:All
There was an unusually long spell with MV down yesterday, regrettably. It was caused by a "networking fault" at our hosting company. The problem appeared to start at around 12:30 and wasn't corrected by the hosting company until around 22:45.
If you are interested in such things you can follow what happened here:

re Website errors - try fix
Context of comment:Donal
timeout error is usually corrected by reloading mountainviews in the browser. If this doesn't work, please get back to me.

Cannor write to uservisit 7027 hasn't occurred previously and is probably a side effect of a hosting company operation yesterday morning where they moved the website to a new server. This also has not happened before. It is quite a subtle error, not manifesting itself till many hours after the move.
Message:A correction has now been made and marking a summit as climbed now appears to work.
Additional points:Please let me know if the fix works or there are any other errors yet to be uncovered.

"Option to Find Walks and Results." from simon3 Expand pics
Option to Find Walks and Results. (Expand pics)
Finding Walk Suggestions - new way.
Context of comment:Suppose you are using MountainViews and you would like to see what shared tracks there are in a particular area perhaps as hints for your own walk.
First, navigate so that your area of interest is displayed in the Detail map.
Look at the new "Find Suggested Walks" section. Click on the button as shown in the picture.
Then a list of tracks on the detail map now appear.
You can further refine this by clicking on a button for type of walk. The diagram shows "Moderate" suggested. And the list below is for Moderate tracks in the area of Mweelrea. You can click more than one type.
You can then click on any of the links to tracks which therefore form suggestions for your walks. These are arranged in descending order of relevance to the types requested.
After you have clicked one, it should appear in the detail map. (Occasionally they are hard to see if they are near the edge of the map). Any user comments about the track will also appear.
Hopefully you will find a general route of interest to you from which you can construct your own route. MountainViews however is a work in progress - feel free to share further tracks when you find omissions.

GPS Note: It is possible to download the exact track for use by a GPS unit. We only recommend this if you are satisfied about the suitability of the shared track for your proposed expedition.
Message:Let's emphasise that this list shows what members have shared through this website. Hopefully the route is reasonable and any comments with it are accurate, however this is not guaranteed. It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission. If you have reason to believe that any track (or indeed any other information) on MountainViews.ie is unsafe or goes against known landowner wishes or is unfit in any way, let us know.
Additional points:As always with new features, do point out bugs or possible improvements. admin@mountainviews.ie
