    A mis-spelling on the database for the drop down menu for hotels

    by Chinggis_n_Borte Online Now Aug 16, 2014 at 10:44 PM

    Hello,

    I am creating a Launceston Tasmania accommodation/hotel tip.
    The accommodation I am writing about is Clarion Hotel, City Park Grand. It is on the drop down menu, but in the drop down menu, it is written City Park Grand Launceton.

    Launceston is incorrectly written with the s missing.

    And the hotel name should also include Clarion Hotel.

    "City Park Grand Hotel Launceton" is incorrect.
    Can this please be fixed up?

    Thank you

    Borte

    Deleting pages

    by german_eagle Online Now Aug 10, 2014 at 2:15 AM

    How you one delete a page? As long as no content was ever added you have the "create - delete" options, but in this special case I once had content there which I deleted. Now I don't have the "create - delete" options anymore, it seems.

    (FYI: Back in the days when the number of travelogues was limited I had a "Basel" page AND a "Kanton Basel-Stadt" page, and I put some additional travelogues on the "Kanton Basel-Stadt" page. A while ago I moved the additional travelogues to my "Basel" page, so they are all on one page now. And I don't need the "Kanton Basel-Stadt" page anymore.)

    Finding one specific restaurant review among the many

    by alza Online Now Aug 6, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    I wonder if there's a way to find reviews about a specific restaurant under one city, without having to search through all restaurant reviews for that city. I'd like to write a review for a restaurant in London but first would like to see if there are reviews about that restaurant on VT already. I did check the first 3 pages of Restaurant Reviews for London but there are at least 54 pages of those Reviews and I'm running out of time tonight...
    Just wondering if there's a place I could type in my restaurant's name that would show me all existing reviews on it. (I haven't written such specific reviews in a long time and may not be aware of all new ways to go about it...)
    If I have to, of course I'll check through the 54 pages, no big thing.
    Thanks for any suggestion!
