I've added a thing to let us hide long blurbs on locale/category pages, since although it's good to have this info, it can end up pushing the lists of actual things in the locale quite a long way down the page.

To make this work, enclose your blurb like so:

<div class="blurb">
My very wordy essay on the history of Harefield.
</div>

You can see this in action on the Ickenham locale page, which has a great but long blurb written by [personal profile] katstevens.

Comments welcome!

I've made some improvements to the pages that need a photo search:

  • You can now exclude contributor pages from the search, and you can also exclude places that have closed.
  • The form is now less messy.
  • I've fixed a bug that was giving the wrong 'photos needed' count when displaying the results on a map.

After a bit of fiddling, I've added a field for Twitter names to the RGL edit form, so we can now have Twitter links on the pages (under the website links). Please feel free to put them in where you know them! It's best to put them in plain, e.g. for La Trompette's page I put in "LaTrompetteUK". The code can cope with you putting in the @ sign and indeed the full Twitter URL, but I'd prefer you to just put the name.

(The technical bit: adding new structured data fields to OpenGuides is a bit of a faff, so I have just repurposed the fax field.)

I've just made a small change to make sure the info popups on RGL maps are more firmly attached to the relevant pointers. Hopefully this will make the maps of densely-populated areas easier to understand!

Before:
Screenshot of a small area of map showing a red pointer and a white info window reading 'George And Dragon, KT7 0RY, Thames Ditton High Street'.  The info window has a little triangle coming down from it and there is a small gap between this triangle and the red pointer.

I've made a small change to the layout of RGL, to make the "edit this page" and "add a comment" links less prominent for people who aren't logged in. I did this because it doesn't make sense to use space in such a valuable area of the page unless the thing we're using the space for is actually relevant to the person viewing it.

If you are logged in (i.e. you've set a username in your preferences), you'll still get those two links up near the title of the page as before.

If you're not logged in, you can still access the "Edit this page" link in the sidebar, and I've also added a new "Send us a comment on this entry" link at the bottom of each article.

As another space-saving measure, I've added some JavaScript that hides all the map links that sit next to the address in the article preamble (i.e. links to Streetmap, Google Maps, etc) and gives you a thing to click on to reveal them.

I've just patched RGL to make it tell you if you're logged in (i.e. have set a username in your preferences). If you are logged in, you'll see a notification of this in the top bar just after the "Randomness Guide to London" title, as shown in the screenshot below.

Image description follows.

[Image description: a cropped screenshot of a web browser window showing "Randomness Guide to London" followed by "You are logged in as Kake." in colours of dark grey, dark green, light green, gold, and light tan.]

This should show up on every page. If you're not logged in, you shouldn't see anything in this spot.
