Message:Re Commenting on Saved Tracks
Additional points:Hi Simon, unfortunately no, that input box doesn't present itself for me. Nor does the small "+" sign visible in your picture.

I tried it using Chrome, MS Edge and MS Internet Explorer, but couldn't get it to work on my devices.

I was trying to add a comment to track 2338.

It would certainly be a very good feature. Interested to hear if other users can do it.

"After clicking on Write comment" from simon3 Contract pics

Re Commenting on saved tracks.
Context of comment:This feature is indeed intended for people to make comments to existing tracks, allowing updated information etc.
As far as I know it is working. Just click where it says "Write comment". An input box should then appear immediately below where you clicked.
Enter text in this and then click on "Click to POST comment" and that's it.
Message:Try it. It was definitely working for me this morning, see
https://mountainviews.ie/track/4506/
Additional points:However this feature was introduced just before the lockdowns started so perhaps not so many people were commenting on routes. Perhaps there are some input setups it doesn't work on We have also changed hosting which might have introduced errors. So, please do report this or any feature that isn't working.

Commenting on saved tracks
Context of comment:I see a comment box on tracks but can't work out how to use it. Is this function in use? If so, any chance of a quick explanation?

I can rate the track but can't seem to add comments. For example, if a track was uploaded quite a long time ago, it might be useful to give updates etc, rather than adding a new track.

Mostly Resolved Disruption on MV
Context of comment:MountainViews is migrating its hosting for technical reasons.
Message:This will start at 8AM on Monday 24th May.
Message:You may find that website stops working or behaves oddly.

Do not upload new comments, tracks etc on Monday until we notify you that this is completed.

There is a risk that the migration will take more than one day.
Additional points:When we have completed this, this forum should be available again.

The initial work has been done and appears to have been successful.

There may still be some untested features not working.
Additional points:As with any big change, there could be errors, yet to manifest themselves.

Problem downloading gpx tracks
Context of comment:There seems to be an issue downloading tracks. Clicking on a track in the suggested walks box does not bring up the option to download the track.

Outage on 25 Mar 2021
Context of comment:outage
Message:The mountainviews.ie site was unavailable due to a network outage (suspected distributed denial of service attack) at our hosting provider.

It seems that the outage started at 8:00am in the morning, and was completely resolved by 4:00pm.

"Icons for pronunciations." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: Icons for pronunciations. (Contract pics)

A start on pronunciation files. Kerry.
Context of comment:MountainViews is pleased to announce that we have now got pronunciations available for a number of places in Kerry. So if you are wondering how to pronounce Boughil or its Irish name Buachaill Finnleithid you can hear them at:

https://mountainviews.ie/summit/227/

others that you might like to try include:

summit/218/ Knocknamanagh Mountain, Cnoc na Manach

summit/441/ Knocknagorraveela Mountain, Cnoc na gCorrmhíolta
Message:MountainViews would very much like to thank our veteran supporter Paul Tempan and his assistant for these pronunciations Hannah Ní Shearcaigh. Hannah is a Kerry native speaker. We would also like to thank volunteer Mike Griffin for research and implementation of the programming code to make the neat short icon for playing the sounds.

443 pronunciation files have been created so far for this project. This is a great start for Kerry and included many of the trickier to pronounce names of the region. We hope to expand the places for which we have pronunciations.
Additional points:As usual with any new feature there are likely to be errors. Please let us know at admin@mountainviews.ie
If you are interested in assisting with pronunciations and can help practically, please do get in touch.

Hill Of Ward Entrance
Context of comment:Historical Hills inclusion
Message:I was there in the summer of 2020 and there is parking at crossroads for two cars or so beside a water tower around 3 km from Athboy. A purpose built entrance leads to a 200 metre flat walk to the ditches and ramparts at the summit. Well worth a visit when restrictions ease again.
Additional points:No Parking issues
