Last month, we launched a cleaner version of the new-post creation page https://www.chowhound.com/post/couple.... This update was in preparation for the following map-related feature we're sharing with you today.
As of now, you can add places to your Chowhound discussions—new and old—posted on Restaurants & Bars and Chain Restaurants worldwide on Desktop.
— Adding a place when creating a new discussion
Just as it currently works, the place(s) you’ve mentioned in your new discussion will get automatically added.
— Adding places to an existing discussion
In case a place is missing on the discussion you started, you will be able to add it by following these steps:
- click the Add Place link
- highlight the name of the place
- click Search
- select the place &amp;amp; submit.
You can also add places that you and other members have mentioned in the comments on your original post.
If we could not match a place, try updating the text field with the following tips:
- check for typos or spell out acronyms (ex: Eleven Madison Park instead of EMP)
- add a location or address (ex: ‘100 2nd Ave, New York, NY’)
- add the type of place (ex: ‘restaurant’, ‘bar’)
— Removing a place from your discussion
You will be able to remove a place from the discussions you have created, including the places mentioned in its comments. To do so, follow the next steps:
Hover over the name of the place and click Remove from Map, confirm and provide feedback (optional) to submit. Then refresh the page to see your changes.
Because the maps feature works best when the correct location tags are selected, and as we plan to add more cities to maps, next week we are updating the following regions to be consistent with the actual world map. More soon!
If you have any issues adding or removing a place from your discussions, let us know—we will be happy to help.
