Resolved Tues 29th Mar
Context of comment:The company that hosts MountainViews.ie intend to make changes on Tues 29/03/2016.

They say there will be some downtime, that is website not functioning of around 10 mins.

More importantly because of the nature of the change it is important that you do not make changes to the website during the morning of Tues.

Don't post comments, tracks, forum comments please. If you do, they may be lost.

Don't make other changes like rating tracks, ticking summits climbed, personal details changes etc. If you do they may be lost.

The day we climbed it...
Context of comment:As a member of hill-bagging.co.uk, I have just updated the Irish summits I bagged in 2015 and it has reminded me of an idea I had some time ago -and probably some of you already had as well- as the British site requests a precise date of achievement for each climb.
Message:As far as I know, we do not have this possibility in MV, and I think it would be interesting to develop such a feature, maybe making it optional so that members who do not wish to indicate any date are not obliged to do so. But maybe it has already been suggested before ?

Video playback - Minor improvement.
Context of comment:You can start looking at any of the offered videos on the Main Area Display. The playback starts in a panel that appears under the map. You can now change the summit or track being looked at as you wish with no interruption to the video. So for example if the video mentions a particular place or route you can get information on it while the video is running.

Formerly when you changed the feature (summit or track) being viewed the video panel disappeared.
Message:It's only a minor improvement but it makes looking at the videos much more flexible.
Additional points:As always, do report any bugs with this feature.

New method of Track Uploads.
Context of comment:When you "Upload a track" you will now see a somewhat different sequence of screens.
After your track is uploaded you will find it divided into day routes as before, however this will be done in a list at the bottom of the page in the same style as "Tracks, Walks => View your tracks" page.
Unlike the "Old" pre-2016 system, you need to individually select which routes are to be saved. In the old system essentially all useable tracks were saved and you needed to remove those you didn't want.
Select the day in question from the list of routes in the list by clicking on the row. (Not on the "Creator" name, the rest of the row)

You will then get some information about the usability of the track. For a new track in most areas you will get the option "Save & optionally add detail". Click this to save the track.

It is then possible to add further information to the route, for example a title, your description etc. You can add formatted text with photos if you wish to. You can change this and all information later. You can also choose to add nothing at this stage.

There are two options to continue: "Save & Rate" is the preferred option. It allows you to tell us a bit more about the route such as what status you assign to the route, what challenge you believe it has, whether it is suitable for children or cycling etc. You can also click on "Save no Rate". We are keen to have all routes rated as it will help users find tracks matching their needs. Other peoples ratings of a route will be taken into account, however the route creators rating will always be weighted strongly.

If the GPX track you uploaded has multiple routes on it then repeat the above process for each day by clicking on the list at the foot of the page. You can see the Status of each day route in the list, to the right. Remember they have to be individually saved to be retained by the system.

We hope you find the new method better and more consistent with the rest of MountainViews.
Additional points:As with all changes, there is a good chance that parts of it are buggy. Let us know at admin@mountainviews.ie If you have suggestions for improvements, let us know.
For a while the "Old" system for uploading tracks will be maintained.

OSI Map layer not working at present RESOLVED
Context of comment:[Update, OSi now restored - operation now as previously] On the main area display you will find that the usual map layer is absent from the detail map. Hopefully this will be rectified within a few days. In the meanwhile you can select a different mapping layer by clicking on the layer button at top right. For example the "cycle" layer.
