    We need to start filling our Campsite Database. Its easy to do, just follow these simple instructions.
    1. Click on>> "Reviews" then >> "Campsite Reviews"
    2. Choose the location of the site, UK Europe or beyond
    3. Click on "Upload Items" which is on the right
    4. Click "Submit"
    5. Fill in as many details as possible, Add a picture from the campsites web page if you can.
    6. Click "Upload"
    Always add the "Town" and "County" correctly as these will probably be search keywords that we will use most when looking for a camp site, Its easy, you can edit your own entry if you are not happy, and then others can come along and rate it as well.

    Once we have a few in with the Sat Nav coordinates we can then start to build our own Campsite map. So please , c'mon, lets get uploading.

    Jim, I think we need a common way of entering Sat Nav coordinates if you plan to map our entries. There is no point in entering new campsites if we don't have a common way of doing it.
    There are different ways of recording Lat. & Long. & we need to make sure we have the one that will make it simple to use when constructing the database map. In Autoroute there are Decimal degrees or Degrees/Minutes/seconds
    It needs someone who haas an understanding of the requirements that are needed to map the database to decide which is best.

    Hi,

    I have asked this before will there be a way of downloading the database to a laptop, as i have added entries to quiet a number of other web site databases only to find they are not down loadable so i end up reverting to my ACSI DVD or my campingcarinfo CD or my ASCI card book, CC Europe book etc etc, therefore making the online database unusable.

    So please is is possible to download the database to a laptop, and keep it updated as it grows

    Thanks
    Brian

    Just added a site and had the following problems

    Confusion over the first two fields, did not know what to enter and ended up with a repeat of the campsite name

    Boxes I ticked, electrics, etc are not filled in

    and lastly I would have though someone would check what I had done before it was made puplic

    other than that ok

    Ralph

    ps

    items one and two now changed

    Added another site and had the same problem with tick boxes, will have to go in and edit again, is it just me or does it need tweaking?

    there are now two places to add Turkish campsites, in
    Turkey, Greece, Balkan Peninsula
    or in
    Turkey

    But I assume one will be removed soon.

    I found that getting into the database to post a campsite review is a little convoluted, however I think I've worked it out so will have a go.
