Just looked at the new Mumsnet Local.
I see the first map, click through to my local area - Surrey.
Then I've looked at Soft Play, Playgrounds, Toddler Groups and they don't show anything. I just see the top banner, side things, footer, and the section title. Nothing below it.

What is it trying to load - a map?
I'm using Google Chrome on Windows Vista, if that's any help.

Techy Stuff:
DIV affected is: local_Main
DIV class side_buttons is empty
DIV class listings_list list_1 is empty

I just tried to add my local Childrens center, but it would not let me as it wants a start date and a end date. I did click the ongoing thing. confused

Can I ask? Is Belfast the only local site for NI or have I broken it again?

Either I'm being blind or lazy but is the only way "back" to "Threads I'm On" via the "back to Mumsnet.com" icon on the top right (which I only found by looking on this thread, as I don't normally look at anything on the right)? And then I have to go back into Talk?

Is this a sneaky way to make us look at the rest of Mumsnet? hmmwink

I'll just use the "back" button on my browser - but it does seem strange.

The other question is: Have all the listings and local activities that had been loaded onto the "old" version been lost? I know I loaded a few and now can't see any.

Also, the range of "Sports" seem somewhat eclectic, especially for a site aimed at families: Airsports, motorsports and boxing but no rugby? confused nothing to do with the time I took with the old version loading in the details for the local rugby club

Ok - how do I become a local editor so I can get my town included?

That's a glitch Nessa, dates on ongoing listings should be automatic. But if you just put today's date as a start date, and then the end date in a few year's time for now, that'll work. We need reminders to check details every so often so we don't end up with out of date listings.

No, there's Belfast and all the counties. Click on Northern Ireland on the UK map at local.mumsnet.com and they're listed in the dark green buttons on the right hand side.

There's a magic link coming from Local talk to Mumsnet main talk, but it's not there yet. smile

We're looking into migrating old listings so all might not be lost. Can't believe we forgot about rugby… It's there now. If it's any consolation we forgot about football too blush

Emma, thanks - still can't do it - but don't worry I'm notoriously shite at things like this. I can only get to Mumsnet Belfast or see the London map - can't get to UK map. Never worry I'll have a nosy later when I've recovered from the Baby Jake marathon I'm enjoying with dd3 - living the dream. Thanks for getting back to me.

EmmaMumsnet Absolutely nothing happens when I try to add a listing to th Croydon site. I press Preview or Post and nothing happens at all. I've tried it about 20 times over several weeks now.

When you're on the form and you press preview or post and nothing happens, try scrolling up to see if there is an error (shown in red – something you haven't put in that you need to).

I'm on it. Just me and some tumbleweeds.

OK, well that scotches theory number one <consults manual> what device and browser are you using?

Emmamumsnet - I actually did manage to upload one listing. I have a few more to put and it stopped me doing anymore.

I'm using a laptop and a desktop and using Internet Explorer.

I have a question. A christmas bristol meet up was arranged originally in the Christmas topic and I believe it may have been moved to the local bit before it was changed. I can't find it anywhere now and it's not in threads I'm on so can't find it and so have no idea if its still happening or not. Can you help mnhq?

Oh and have looked on the new local talk boards and can't find it there. Am I being silly or has it disappeared?
