| ||Member Profile & Rig Pics - Members
have the opportunity to post photos of, and information about, their rig in "My Profile". That information can become useful if you post a question on the Forum about road conditions, trip planning, or a specific issue with your rig – people answering your query can easily see what type of vehicle, van camper trailer etc that you have, leading to better informed and more useful answers. Why not take a moment this week to check your Profile and consider adding something interesting about yourself and your rig. |
Time to celebrate! The wildflower section on ExplorOz was launched in February this year. Five months on and about 400 wildflowers have been posted by a growing band of avid wildflower and photography enthusiasts. Several wildflowers have attracted more than 1000 views.
Here's some things you might not know...
- you can search the wildflowers by putting a word (eg red, or sand, or the name of a national park) into the search box and get a list of every wildflower post that includes that word.
- you can see the wildflowers listed in their family groups eg all the pea flowers are in the Fabaceae family, all the daisies are in the Asteraceae family.
- You don’t have to be an expert to contribute – if you have a great wildflower photo but can’t identify it, post it up and others will do their best to find a name for it.
How to find it ... fast!
Did you know there is an easy way to quickly search for ALL PRODUCTS stocked in the ExplorOz Shop that cover a particular location? From the Shop Home Page, simply use the second search box to search for Places. As you type for a track, or place by name, a drop down list will appear containing all matching Places in our database. The example below shows how you could search our shop for products (ie. maps/books/atlases) covering Pemberton:
From the given list of Places, you pick one. You'll then see a list of products from our shop that the system can best match to that Place.
Once you've selected a product to view, you can also verify the exact coverage parameters of the map/book by going into the “Coverage” section of the product description. This section will also offer other similar items enabling you to compare with other maps/books.
