    For this example, we will use the RoSPA Head Office.

    Press 'Create New Location'

    Enter the Location Name, with no geographical location...

    Add a short description, not required...

    Choose the matching forum category, in this example we will use the 'Other Sites' category...

    Please note, if the building is demolished or converted, select the 'Demolished / Converted' option.

    To find the location on the map, there are two options.

    1) If you can easily find the location you can use the map controls to zoom in and locate it. The marker is set where you click the map. You can change the location simply by clicking the map again...

    2) If you're unsure of where the location is, first find the address. A quick Google search tells us the address is at 28 Calthorpe Road, Birmingham. Enter that in the Address field and press 'Show on Map'...

    If you don't have an accurate address you may still need to search the map further to find the location. When located, set the marker location by clicking on the map, as above.

    After fixing the marker, press 'Get Address From Map'...

    This will populate the address field with Googles best guess, and that's good enough.

    If you know an authoritative website for the location, enter it in the 'Authoritative Website' field...

    8.jpg

    You can add an image URL that summarises the location. If you use this option, please make it a good image! Otherwise, not required.

    In the description you can add any extra details about the location, links to 28DL threads, security presense and response, that sort of thing.

    Finally, press 'Save Changes' and the map location will be saved...

    That's it. Easy, and in reality it takes about 30 seconds.

    Cheers.
