    Hi Stuart,

    You provide such a great service with the travel guides that I almost feel bad making any suggestions for improvements.

    However.. I won't let it stop me! ;-)

    In the Members Centre area where I can see a list of eGuides that I have generated - is there any possible to:

    1. show the Country and the Region name?
    2. sort the list by Country, Region?
    3. include the file name (or Country/Region in the generated PDF?
    :
    (Or is there some other logic to how they appear in the list? To me, it looks like a random generator has been at work!)

    I sometimes really struggle to figure out which guide covers what area!

    Also, on the webpages that cover off specific areas, it would be great it there was some reference to which eGuide I can find it in! Again, it's a struggle to figure it out sometimes!

    Just a few ideas to keep you out of the hammock...!

    Lisa

    PS. This is my first attempt at creating a 'list'. Let's hope I get it right since I can't edit!! :-D

    Hi,

    OK I've changed the display so now it sorts them by country and by region. So if you've got the guide for Hoi An (Quang nam), you'll find it listed under Vietnam: Central Vietnam -- hope that makes it a bit easier.

    Unfortunately I can't display Hoi An instead of Quang Nam, so you'll just need to remember a bit of geography (this is only really a prob with Vietnam and to a lesser extent Cambodia).

    On the relevant pages where we have a Travelfish Guide (the paid for ones) we have a direct link -- see the title page for Ko Tao for an example -- we don't do this for the freebies, primarily because it is confusing, but also because they're available for just about all the provinces we cover.

    Hope that helps

    What do you mean "go back to"?

    I did it from my hammock...
