    Trying to add a location in the pin map, but nothing happens when I press add location. I tried a month ago and got the error 'can't find location', now nothing happens when I press add.

    Maybe chrome is acting up??

    Vic's Kangaroo Cafe
    United States
    636 Tchoupitoulas St
    New Orleans
    LA

    Nope, I cannot either. I stopped trying a long time ago. It is a site issue I believe.

    You actually have to find your location on the map, zoom in, zoom in and add the pin, you can't do it by your zip code or town name.

    #4 4 years ago

    I cannot either. I even tried using the address on the cross street of the store next door. Won't take that one either.

    I was able to edit existing locations and add a new location elsewhere with no issue.

    Have you tried to set manually?

    for a time I thought imcould just add my zip but it does not work unless you zoom in on the map to drop a pin.

    #7 4 years ago

    I don't see any way to drop it manually on the public locations page.

    Quoted from Chrizg:

    I can't update locations

    You need to uncheck the "Don't show Date Time Stamp" next to Save Changes button.

    Where is that at ?

    Hmmm It must just only be a Moderator thing. It shows up just to the left of Close Location Editor button.

    You have to go to where it says 'set your location on the map' (note it doesn't work like you think, it won't work if you click 'set my location manually').

    then you have to zoom into your location (there is a circle on that is in the center of the map, you have to grab the map and put that circle where you want it. Then you hit 'proceed'

    I can't start a topic at all on pinside.

    I can type text into the topic line, but can't type anything at all into the "body" of the post.

    This just started happening since the last update a few days ago.

    are you sure? Since the update, the new topic post, there is a very thin box that expands if you click on it so you can add text, it's not a full box like it was before until you click on it and type something.

    I'm not trying to add my location. I'm trying to add a bar on the pinball locator map.

    Give it a try. I can't add the following bar for example:

    Vic's Kangaroo Cafe
    United States
    636 Tchoupitoulas St.
    New Orleans
    LA
    Pin - TAF

    sorry I don't know about that. I just went to a location said to have a Mustang pro, but there was no pins whatsoever so I'm going to see how to delete that entry.

    I go to delete the pin and it won't accept that I'm deleting the pin.

    #17 4 years ago

    I edited on Thursday but I haven't been able to since Friday.

    #18 4 years ago

    This still doesn't work. After updating the location, the 'Save changes to this location' button does nothing

    #19 4 years ago

    Please try after Robin pushes and announces new code tomorrow.

    #20 4 years ago

    Another related issue with adding and updating locations has been going on since the February update. It won't let you add or update if the location has an apostrophe in the title. It caused an error which says "Location Not Found" or something like that. So I had to start deleting the apostrophes out of location titles just to add or update. But yeah since the most recent update, I can't add or update anything at all, so hopefully it will all get fixed soon including the apostrophe bug.

    #21 4 years ago

    Once tomorrow's update is done.. If you still have the quote problem please open for a bug with that. Perhaps mention quotes in the topic. That is worthy of reporting separately to avoid it getting lost in the noise.

    Yes, I will sure do that. And technically it's not a "quote" problem. It would be any location name with an apostrophe; for example:

    Mick's Bar and Grill
    Moe's Sub Shop
    Joe's Old Town Bar and Grill
    Lucky's Everyday
    Larry Bud's
    Knolla's Pizza
    Betty's Too Laundromat
    John Barleycorn's Bar

    And all those are just in Wichita, KS. You would be surprised how many locations have an apostrophe in the title.

    #23 4 years ago

    My bad. From a language point of view you're right. From a programming point of view, it is a quoting and escaping problem; the apostrophe character is also know as single quote. the database language uses quotes - so quotes in values have to be handled specially.

    #24 4 years ago

    This one should be fixed now!

    #25 4 years ago

    Neal_W: Please mark this as resolved if you're satisified.
    Some of us are trying to use the resolved status to track things

    #26 4 years ago

    kst8cat: I'm filing detailed bug reports now for the quotes/apostrophes thing.

    #27 4 years ago

    I was able to update my locations.

    #28 4 years ago

    Awesome. Can you mark the thread resolved? IF you're on mobile, turn your phone sideways so this shows up at the top of the thread.
