Help on creating reviews

To create a new review, look at the menu down the left-hand side of the page. Click on the menu item for Create content to show the options, then click on Review. This brings up a review form.

General Tips

The review form has several sections:

  1. The title, type of place, and muzac status;
  2. Useful information about the palce;
  3. The body of the review;
  4. The address of the place;
    1. Here are a few hints as to how each field should be used.

      Title

      The name of the place being reviewed. This will also appear when you hover with your mouse over its marker on the map.

      The 'vocabularies' section.

      Notice the little triangle next to the word 'vocabularies'. If you click on the triangle or the link alongside it, the section will open or close. It is best to leave this section open as the vocabularies are important.

      Place type

      Holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, click on as many terms as apply to the place. Doing this helps users of the site to find reviews. With the Ctrl key held down, clicking the mouse, alternately selects and de-selects a term. If you think that none of the existing terms apply, choose Unclassified: doing so will signal the administrators to improve the taxonomy.

      Piped music status

      You must choose one of the descriptions.

      Useful information

      This is a place to put any useful information such as opening hours, web-site address, accessibility, travel information. Any web address added in this section will be converted into a hyperlink. See the link under this field for more information on adding formatting.

      Review

      As full a review as you like. Any web address added in this section will be converted into a hyperlink. See the link under this field for more information on adding formatting.

      Address

      Try to fill in the full address. Include the town under City and the county where there is one, even if it is not normally necessary in the postal address. (e.g. Colchester, Essex rather than just Colchester, even though Colchester is a post-town and so the Post Office prefer simply Colchester). Again, this is to help visitors find the place. Make sure you include the postcode.

      Ignore the Latitude and Longitude fields unless GMaps gets the position of your place wrong. If it does, you can enter the latitude and longitude. See the problems page if this happens.

      Having completed all these items, just click the Save button. Your review is now ready to be indexed by the system. It will also appear on the front page of the system, as one of the most recent reviews, and on the map.

      If you want to add to the review, modify it, or delete it, you can do so by finding it. As the author, you will have an Edit button at the top of the page.
