    Members Map

    Hi guys, I have been changing the way I enter new members into the members map, Instead of using Google maps directly, I am using Google Earth then saving it as a KML file, going back into Google maps and importing the saved KML file.

    The main reason for this long way around of entering new members is,

    In Google Earth, I can have each state separate in there own folder so 2 speak....it looks something like this

    NSW
    QLD
    VIC
    WA

    etc

    when you open the folders up you get

    NSW

    toddrhind
    etc ( rest of NSW members )....

    QLD

    bigrig
    etc ( rest of QLD members )...

    VIC

    AB
    etc ( rest of VIC members )...

    WA

    The Dogman
    etc ( rest of WA members )....

    Unfortunately when I import that info back into Google maps, I loose the subfolders....

    and get

    toddrhind
    etc ( rest of NSW members )....
    bigrig
    etc ( rest of QLD members )...
    AB
    etc ( rest of VIC members )...
    The Dogman
    etc ( rest of WA members )...

    At the moment I an struggling 2 achieve what i want ( displaying it grouped by state ) for you guys 2 see. The only way I can see it happening is by making the map public for all in www land 2 see ( if they wanted 2 ), currently it is what they call unlisted which means that only people with the link can view it.

    So my long winded question 2 you guys is

    Leave it as is - Unlisted

    Or

    Make it public for all to see

    god hope i haven't confused anyone *L*
    Time is never wasted when your wasted all the time

    If making it public makes it easier to do, then go for it. Glad you are here as I have no idea what your post said
