Edition 303: 19th September 2013

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

We are pleased to confirm that the change to our customer service operations has gone smoothly. Our Customer Service Manager, Adele Scala, is now handling all incoming calls and emails from her new location in the Pilbara. There are no changes to order dispatch operations from our South Australian warehouse and just a few minor changes in the Perth office (David and Michelle are missing Adele's company and someone to make the morning cuppa!). Please note our new phone number is (08) 9467 4025.

How to do it

When photos are added to Places, you might be surprised to learn that the newest one does not automatically override the main pic. Ever wondered why? Ever thought you’d like to take control of which photo is highlighted as the main place pic? Well here’s how…

To view all photos of a Place, click the Photos tab. Now just hover your mouse over the stars until they change colour to yellow. 3 yellow stars = a rating of 3 out of possible 5 (you can do half ratings also).

The system will automatically select the highest rated pic (highest average rating out of given votes for each photo) to be shown as the main header pic.

New Button

How to Edit Places

When things change and need to be updated, you can normally find an Edit button to fix it there and then on the page. However, there are some features that can only be updated by an administrator.

As part of the collaborative play-space that makes up the fabric of ExplorOz, we encourage you to use these Edit buttons to fix any updates or alert our Place Administrators by clicking this new button if you spot an error that you cannot modify. The new button is available on each Place page as indicated in this sample.
