Routes have a date but it seems to be an Edit date not date uploaded. A route of mine whose description I later updated now appears to be about a year younger than the review. Not serious, but a bit confounding.

Settlement pages say "N people have contributed to Settlement X's Slow Ways", but it seems to be a simple count of reviews, not including authors of new routes or discounting repeated names. E.G. Edenbridge: it says 4 people should be 2 people, or maybe 3 if you include the original routes as a single anon. author. Not serious but it does seem to be a bug given that review numbers and number of routes drawn are explicitly stated (for SWays) elsewhere on the same page.

I walked BRIHAM two (a snailed route) yesterday but now I can't get into its route page to review it, move it to my walked routes waylists or even to report this problem.
I tried on the Android phone using the Samsung browser numerous times yesterday evening and on the laptop (Firefox) today but after a long wait I only get this 503 error page:
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Other routes are still loading fine, so I am not sure how widespread the problem is.

Ps my pledge list is also odd, reviewed routes show both with and without the little figure. As do non-reviewed routes. Multiple examples. Leaves me unsure of the little fella's purpose. Is he like a tick for a pledge I have completed. Or is he a prompt to walk, like a pedestrian crossing green light? NB my waylist "My Pledges" does show an accurate record of my reviews.

I walked Cirfai two on 3 July and have submitted a review and a survey. However the route details are no longer visible. I just get an error 500 and a promise someone is looking in to it.
By the way searching for a route from Cirencester to Fairford produces 3 results but only Cirfai two was visible until the above. The other 2 don't show anything. Cirfai one is presumably excluded because it's described as dangerous in two's description but three is a mystery.

Routing tool on a (a)n Android phone. When I type in a place I'll use my phone's autocorrect, like always, and it inserts a space at the end of the word. The routing search doesn't trim the trailing space so it can't find the place, even though to a human eye it looks fine, so it is initially unclear why the drop down list of options has blinked off. Something similar happens if you click through to the new list, but then use the back button to generate a new one. The names are still there but they are no longer recognised. Of course neither issue is particularly significant but could just make the experience a teeny bit less smooth.

Mobile, Android. Error 404 loop after using Er404 search box.
I entered a URL link I hoped was a SlowWay page but it was wrong. "Sorry we couldn't find that" page appears. Start to type place name into this new search box but within a few letters (time not keystrokes) it jumps straight to a new Er404 frame in front of and within the first. Tried again, again then again, result is 5 nested Er404 pages like Russian dolls. At this point the top window is so narrow there's no search text box visible to click into. Refreshing page returns to original flawed URL and same results.
Starting URL was https://beta.slowways.org/SlowWay/strbas. I actually wanted StaBas.

Recipe for a very very minor bug:
Make a waylist with a forward slash symbol in the name. Put a few routes in it. Click the dustbin symbol to delete one of them. Confirm by clicking purple Remove button. Page flickers then settles on an error message. Refresh, nothing changes. Press back button a few times to My Waylists page and go in again. Route has gone. Try to delete another route, same. Try copying waylist's url before the remove, then pasting back in after error. This works but is awful fiddly. Remove forward slash from waylist's name. Test it again. Hey, it's all fine!
Someone who knows more about html would probably avoid the slash automatically. But I didn't. And using abbreviations like 1/2, 5/6, and/or, n/a, +/-, etc isn't that unlikely in a waylist name. Might prevent some future time wasting, for users and tech support both.

GreWoo 3 is verified, but doesn't shows on Slow Ways maps, except it's own page. GreWoo 2 was very similar, but not verified. It was fatally flawed and has been removed and replaced by GreWoo 3. It's gone from lists but still shows on SW maps. Because they're so similar it appears as if GreWoo 3 is unverified until you look very closely, assuming you already know what the difference is. (Westfield Rd on ver 2 is blocked so replaced by Bowater Rd on 3 - near Thames Barrier.
I've seen similar bugs on the progress map, many more recently added routes are invisible. But never before on the main site. Is it a known thing?

Like someone above I had an Error 500 message this weekend, for me when trying to pledge HarGra 1. It's now on my pledge list but the other I tested, HooHar, isn't there.

Review of Milble Three isn’t showing. This seems to be the same problem I had last week when I submitted a review for Walkin Two which also disappeared with no trace. (Ticket 1206).
I wrote a review of Milble Three using the app, 2 photos attached, submitted, look to be fine, no error message, but …. no new review appears.
I think this needs a bit more following up please, it is very frustrating, and also when I have to do it twice the second one is always going to be less considered and probably less useful as a result.
I can go back to using the website for posting reviews, but I did find using the app easier for managing the photos.

The walk I've done using the app is not showing up in my account on the website when I'm logged in.
Can we also report app bugs here too?
1. On the walk today the app crashed, when I reopened it, it allowed me to carry on from where I was (which was a relief). but it just marked my progress with a dotted purple line, and didn't update the distance correctly.
2. When I got to the destination, I didn't know how to tell the app I'd made it, and paused it, then ended it, and I think it didn't record the whole distance!
3. I want to submit a review in the app. When I'd typed it in I noticed that the Submit button was greyed out. I can't work out how to make it active.

I noted this was reported. My route won't upload because the start and endpoints don't match but I put both into my OS Maps program and included them in the route?
"When uploading a route the start and end points have to match the pre-existing choice of start and end already on the website.

I'm struggling a little to enter place names on the "Find your Slow Way" landing page.
On a smartphone (Android) the text box where you initially enter a place name becomes unreadable when you start typing anything in it. You can't tell if you have mistyped it. And that can be a particular problem if you are less proficient at typing on phones. Like many older people, or people with tremors, or people like me who seem to just have fat fingers.
The problem is threefold.
a) the on screen keyboard takes up the bottom half of the screen
b) the purple box (which shows how many routes etc have been completed) pops up when you start typing and it fills half the remaining screen space
almost covering the text box.
c) you can't make the text box reappear by scrolling, as the purple box just scrolls up and down over/with it.
It's pretty bad with the phone in portrait, but in landscape it's impossible.
I would like to look at routes on my phone so it's a problem for me. But no-one else seems to have noticed or perhaps have cared and I realise you are a small team and have limited resources for website tweaks. This would be on my personal wishlist though because it is the entry point every time I want to use it.

Having surveyed Newoln today:
- I gave this a 3 for path surface grade – it has been recorded as U.
- I gave this a Y for mobile phone coverage – it has been recorded as ‘no information’
- I gave this a Y for free of flight of steps – it has been recorded as ‘don’t know’
Lack of clarity
- When uploading photos there is no acknowledgement of uploading successful once you do it. Can’t tell if its worked or not, which is frustrating.
- I skipped the gradients and camber questions (I didn’t measure them) – but they are shown as 0%. This is misleading – implies it’s flat.
- A red X next to ‘Possible to avoid steps’ implies there are steps, even when I ticked to indicate there were no flights of steps. Suggest change to say ‘Possible to avoid steps, if applicable’
- Please can there be a way to edit your own previously uploaded survey? This would mean any errors made in uploading can be fixed immediately, or data amended in light of new info (e.g. adding features later if not done first time). If this feature already exists -please nake clear how to choose it.

Not a problem with the website but your description of an X access grade is completely wrong on the IOS app. An X means not accessible to wheelchairs etc.

Something seems to me to have changed in the home page. Entering Hilton in the search box now no longer brings up Hilton (South Derbyshire) - which is a Slow Ways node. Searching for Hilton now brings up five Multiple Matches, all of them various Hiltons in England or Scotland, but none of them SW nodes. Up to a week or two ago Hilton (South Derbyshire) WAS found from a search for Hilton. This seems to have a flavour of the problem reported for MOLD in the bug report dated 26 June?

Route Strkin One
I was checking a route that I originally plotted. The route on the website has an excess of waypoints and they are not accurately placed - It looks like the route was simplified (some turns and wiggles removed) and then run through another system that added a load of intervening points. In its current form it cannot be followed.
I have downloaded the route, uploaded into OS then corrected. The web page won't let me upload that new route - error message says start and finish too far from grid ref. But I haven't changed the start and end points - on the OS they match the ones quoted.

Website looking good but as others have said the paging needs a bit of refinement.
How to link

- verify link paragraph 3 ‘beshould’ needs a space, paragraph 4 ‘aa route’ needs a link?, ‘three people think’ looks odd
- survey link paragraph 1 is missing an ‘and’
- add link, how can you add is missing a full stop between transport and find, Scotland click here is not a link
Great Britain and United Kingdom are used interchangeably - is this deliberate?

When signing up the form requires a username, email address and password. When I logged in I used username and password but then it asked me to use my email address to login. Note that I use a password manager so whilst the form may have said "email", auto-complete fills it in anyway.
I would avoid "username" as it's generally regarded as the other part of logging in. If the username is meant as a way of identifying you to other users, probably better to make this a "Nickname" or "Name" which can then be updated in a profile section.
Lastly, passwords will become a thing of the past. Even banking now (Monzo) does not have a password. I would recommend adding to your backlog to drop passwords and use email authentication.

Cannot do a place survey for Gillingham (Dorset). It appears this is because Gillingham in Dorset and Gillingham in Kent both have the place name Gillingham, and any reference to Gillingham links to the Kent one. This also means that any attempt to create a new route for the existing Slow Ways from the Dorset Gillingham (Gilmer, Gilsha, Margil, Stagil, Wingil) requires the Kent Gillingham as a start point. Gillingham is a Walkers are Welcome town, but we really can't promote Slow Ways in North Dorset until this is resolved.

Some 'Places' in North Yorkshire have no bus or train stops, and no accommodation, but seem to have been chosen based solely on geographical location. There are, however, inns offering accommodation, Bed and Breakfast and holiday lets in places within a few miles of those suggested and there are also places with bus routes and train stations also within a few miles. It is unlikely anyone would want to walk to somewhere they cannot get out of or stay in, so I wonder if provision could be made for adding/removing 'Places' subject to agreement of others, in a similar manner to adding/removing routes. The exact way in which this could be done would need to be thought through.

Route shown as verified twice but only one reviewer.
Worupt One Worcester - Upton upon Severn
This was reviewed and verified for the first time on 01.02.2022 by Grifftinfoilhat
It looks like the review was reposted (maybe to add a second photograph) and by doing this it has been verified a second time. However as I understand it a reviewer's second verification shouldn't count toward the total tally, is that right? Otherwise it would be easy to get new routes their snails without going through a proper peer review process.
I'm pretty sure previously where I've added a second review to make a note it hasn't counted my second verify tick towards the tally.

When looking at reviews for CUCHAY 1. They are always presented with today's date as the review date. Rather than the date the review was submitted.

Hi Cristie, your new route isn't showing on the progress map! https://beta.slowways.org/Route/Bascan/10316. With so much overlap I tried clicking through all of the settlement text popups instead. Clicked Canvey, could see Canvey Island settlement, BasCan 1 route and CanLei 1-4 but no BasCan 2. Same at Basildon.

Ink Atlas links are misbehaving. From a route page > click More Options > All the options respond on Left Click except Ink Atlas. It is possible to Right Click, new window etc but a) this has changed b) it'd probably be off putting to new/irregular users, especially if they don't know what Ink Atlas is anyway (I didn't!). And Ink Atlas / printing a map (without using one of the recommended apps?) doesn't seem to be mentioned in the FAQ which is odd.

A weird one. I just saved CRIRIP 2 (Crich-Ripley) to a waylist because I want to walk it, and another stub route ASCWRA 0 was added automatically at the same time. I deleted the one I didn't one from the waylist, but that deleted both. It appears that both have been assigned route number 9262, which can't be right,

Coarsening/crudening (is that a word!?) of routes when added to waylist. I made this waylist - https://beta.slowways.org/user/waylist/londonfeb/9135. When viewing it, I can see that the routes do not match the routes shown on the individual pages of each of the 3 slow ways. Something has made them coarser and run off course. This also means that the nodes don't match and therefore a contiguous gpx cannot be produced.

Odd, low priority URL bug. https://beta.slowways.org/Slowway/chiswa gets a "Sorry we couldn't find that" message. But put the capital W in SlowWay and it's all fine. Checked on Chrome, Edge and Chrome for Android.

I have just loaded a survey for HORCRA, and when you look at the route page it now says it has been surveyed twice. Both times by me. I really have only surveyed it once. This seems to happen each time I submit a survey.
