Filtering tops.
Context of comment:Suggestions by Colin Murphy, CaptainVertigo (diffidently), pazapas for a means of limiting what is displayed in the left (geographical navigation) panel on the summit page. Possibly doing this with colour coding on the map.

Comment: Recently(2008) we included a revised list of summits with 208 small prominent summits added to the previous extension of 400m summits. This has led to further information on outliers such as Preban Hill (389m in Wicklow) and Soarns Hill (403m in Antrim Hills). However some people have requested that a way be found to limit the display of summits to higher summits. Certainly I can see their point. If your agenda is currently say the 500m summits, then in some parts of the island the multiplicity of other summits can be confusing.
Note: that this difficulty would be mainly on the front "Summit - Info & Comments" display. On the "Lists & Logs" page you can say what list you want and the map produced will only show those summits.

Message:A change has now been made so that it is possible to select the minimum height of summits displayed in two maps: the left panel area map (that's the lower one) and the OS Area Map.

The change also limits summits displayed in the "Choose in area" drop down and the list of summits under the left panel area map.

While making the changes I also changed the code so that the Nearby Summits list and the map on the left use your language preference (set in Settings).

I didn't change the Outline all Ireland map (top left) or the equivalent on the Walks page or try colour coding the summits.

When you first start the system defaults to display all, that is the 150m option.
Additional points:Further comments welcome - soon please before I forget where the code is.
