Where have you been?
We've just added a new feature to the site that allows Travelfish members to select places they have visited in the region (that are covered on Travelfish) and then display them on a map. It's nothing too serious - just a bit of fun -- and from the map, other readers will be able to click through to read more about specific places, You can see my (incomplete) map here.
How does it work? Each location now has a new link above the main introduction text. You can see a sample here for Krabi:
All you need do is click on the link (you need to be logged in for it to work), and there you go, you've been to Krabi:
As we figured you'll not want to surf through all 600 odd places listed on Travelfish selecting them individually, we've added a new section to the Member Centre titled "Where have you been?"
If you want to see where you have been, click on "Places you have been":
If you've selected anywhere in error, just click on the red x to nuke it. Likewise if you want to select a bunch more places, click on the imaginatively named "Select more places":
Want to see it on a pretty map? Try "Your map"
And last but not least, if you click on one of the markers on the map, you'll get a pop-up with a pic and you can click through to read more about the destination.
That's it! We're still playing around with it so all suggestions welcome. If you don't select anywhere then the map will remain totally blank.

Nice one, It's always fun to have a look at the places you've been! filled it in already

That is neat and doesn't take long to do either, I did mine as well.
Konglor should have its own page though, not everyone does the Thakek loop to see it.
Edit: Only problem is that now you have to make a way for people to easily see where you have been. Maybe add a link under their name or something? Only way I can find to currently do it is to look at my own and replace my name with someone else's and that is a pain and I would never think to do it.

That's a good point Geer1 - I'll get that added in.
Konglor is organised in that way cause the locations you can pick are a reflection of what is available on Travelfish, and because the Tha Khaekloop took in so many small towns we through it together into one larger section - not ideal I know.
