Place names [28 November 2007]

Hi again Lois... Just wanted to mention a tip that will help save time in typing. You'll notice that many of your place names are in "red." That means the place, as it was typed, was not found in the place index. In the case of your Canadian place names, the system is not recognizing the abbreviation "Sask" for Saskatchewan (I would use the abbreviation too, because I just had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to spell it! LOL). Anyway, what you can do is when you type the town name followed by the "comma", pause for just a second and a drop-down box will appear giving you a list of places to chose from. Click on your choice and it will fill in the place name for you. This will save you a lot of typing time and will also link the place to the page that's been created for it. Hope this helps and thanks for joining us here at WeRelate! :) --Ronni 06:44, 28 November 2007 (EST)

Dromore and Dromora [15 October 2012]

If Dromora is a separate place, why don't you add it to the list of places? --goldenoldie 09:32, 15 October 2012 (EDT)
