How to remove the location of an area?
This is a admin only function. What area you would like to alter and why?
Haha good luck.
Some time ago I edited the location of the Barao de Cocais area (https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/brazil/minas-gerais/area/1143520833). But now I have already inserted locality for all sub areas. This no longer needs to show the location of the area.
I would like it to look like this: https://www.thecrag.com/en/climbing/brazil/minas-gerais/area/3720723735
Hi Nicky, what is your decision about removing the location of the Barão de Cocais area? The map will look cleaner.
Filipe Madeira after a first look, the division of areas seems a little messy in this example.
Sometimes it can be difficult for an editor to differ between region, area, crag and cliff and to define the best subdivision (see the doc-article about area-types for details).
If something like this occures in my area, I first try to do a correct division, change the area's types and relations to a locigal order (reparenting). Maybe it needs a parent region/area. But after that the areas' shapes and localization seem more reasonable.
I think this is what you want--not deleting a localization, but doing a proper mapping.
Hi sorry for the later answer.
I aggre with Mel that in this case it looks not realy as a wrong location.
There is no reason to draw the boundary so narrow around the sectors. I would expand it more to a convex shape.
Instead of deleting the one I would rather add a boundary around that area https://www.thecrag.com/en/climbing/brazil/minas-gerais/area/3720723735 as well.
Some search algorithms based on geolocation are based on the assumption that the parents of a crag have overlapping borders.
I hope that helps.
Yes, it was enlightening. I'm going to leave the location and draw the boundary as Nick proposed. Thanks Nick and Mel.
I just stumbled over a similar problem...is it not possible (anymore) to change the area type of a crag?
I'm pretty sure that I changed area types in the past, but couldn't find a solution/answer right now.
Does it depend on the type? Is it admin-only? As I created the crag before, it should not be a question of permission ;-/
the edit form looks like this at the moment:
- screenshot fixed area type
It very much depends on the index level. So for example only admins can edits countries and first level sub areas of countries.
But there is a rare situation where you can create a area but have not the right permission.
Can you please send a link to the area in question.
Nicky there's already a link (hidden behind the word "crag")
aaah, thanks for the fast support!
(Christoph Rauch it's not hidden, it's hyperlinked! thx for the hint thou)
In regards to the permission issue, from memory we have a business rule that means you have to have higher permission rights to change some crags from a top level crag as this has processing implications for the system
