The new park index page is now LIVE!

If you click "Park Index" from either the links above or the front page you will be taken to the new index:
http://www.themeparkreview.com/parks/

Remember that now you can add your ride/coaster photos and trip reports to the database!

Just click the link at the bottom of the park page, fill out the form, and attach your images! It's very easy and it's great to see your photos featured on Theme Park Review!

Thanks again to everyone who helped out on this project!

Hey,
Sorry to be nit-picking, but on the index, Lightwater Valley is labelled as "Lightwater Valley, Blackpool, Lancashire, UK" when I know for a fact that it isn't :P. When you click the link, however, it is displayed correctly as "North Stainley, Ripon, North Yorkshire "


I know it's only a minor issue, but I thought it might help with the search.

Well done, Robb, this is a great function and is really helpful. Good job, have a cookie :D

In the T section you still have Test Park 1 there and Test Test there. :)

This is really cool! Great idea.

One question: do you see this as a long term replacement for posting TR's on the forum?

It says I need to log in, but the problem is that I was logged in when I tried to upload a photo.

^ I'm not going to answer for Robb, but in short no.

Photo TR's are what make TPR cool. With this system, members can upload stuff rather than the mods having to go through thousands of Photo TR's and add them manually. Right now, we move PTRs to the Archive Forum, and then pick the stuff we think is the best of the bunch. It's time consuming.

It's a seperate log in to upload a photo to the index. It uses your forum name and password, you just have to input it one more time.

It's a way to keep spambots from using the form.

No, not at all. It's just an easier way for us to do our "official TPR updates."

We've always had the park index, it's just a newer system that's more customizable, easier to update, and probably the most important part, USEFUL SEARCH FUNCTION!!! =)

^I did that though, but it still says I need to log in. After I hit submit, a link comes up that says Return To Theme Park Review, and it takes me to the main page.
